Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 Digital Camera
My camera has recently stopped working. I would charge the battery and within minutes the battery would be drained. I thought the battery would be faulty so I bought a new one but the same problem occurred. Any suggestions what this could be?
Hi! we bought two brand new battery's on eBay for less then $10bucks + free shipping! might want to poke around eBay?

*&%$@#%^&*&^% !!"It's working!!!! Turn your camera on and put it near your ear. Did you hear a softly motorized sound in the lenses area and the green LED is flashing? If you hear this sound do this. Do it under your own responsability. (any way your camera does not work). When you turn on the camera wait until the lenses come out, in that moment grab the lens with your hand and don't let it go back. The camera will turn off but the lens will stay out. With the camera off push in the lens with your hand. Turn on the camera and that's it. I had to do it 2 times, but now my camera it's working again. This system error could be caused because the lens get out of it rail and the camera can not set the focus system.

The innards of modern DSLRs are precise and fragile. You need to contact a reputable repair shop ASAP. In addition to fixing your camera, they will clean the interior properly, eliminating dust particles that find their way to the CCD. The cleaning is something you should have done from time to time anyway, so just bite the bullet and take it in!

Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.
