Hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage. 
thank u rate me!!!

Why does my Panasonic DMCFZ28 take pictures when I push the zoom lever?


Hi,
I suspect the snap key is shot circuited, use contact cleaner spray in the click button often press it to get ride of possible carbon shot circuit between the switch. in some cases the processor will malfunction, and if moisture or water particles gone inside, you must open the cam and clean the motherboard thoroughly with PCB cleaning agent.

Zoom Problem


Before assuming the camera is broken, have a flip through the settings menus to make sure you haven't got the camera into some mode which is incompatible with zoom - for instance, mine won't zoom if it's in SuperMacro mode. A.

Trimming function won't work


This is Digital Zoom I take it. best to ignore it then and do all image editing in an image editor. Do get onto Panasonic Tech Support that may have an answer for you.

Canon SD550 Digital Zoom Not Working


Digital Zoom is best ignored in any camera it simply blows up a section of an image already taken, You can do that far better with an image editor in the computer. As for the Optical Zoom - it does indeed seem to be repair time- As it is only a year and half old- may be Canin will be sympathetic and offer a cheap swap out.
