Lens is likely jammed - replacement vs . newer model camera . . . estimate : typical checkout charge is around $ 50 ( occasionally free , if shop does the repairs )

Could you explain how you popped out the lens? I tried my fingernail with no luck. I even took apart the camera to see if it could be reached from the inside.

Oh my god! I had the same problem. I read the previous msg about the lens being jammed. I forced the lens out (not hard at all) with my finger nail. Problem solved!!! Thank you! : )

My Panasonic TZ25 says "System Error - Focus". What should I do?

Panasonic DMC TZ25 compact camera - System Error (Focus)
- Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera (suggested by Andrea Lock, above). I actually had to try this several times as camera was refusing to reset properly, but after a few goes, lens retracted and camera began to work again. Thanks Andrea.

To adjust the focus on the camera you are suppose to press the shutter button halfway down and it will lock your focus in and then press the shutter button again and take the picture. It was working fine...

Usually for clocks... it is quite excellent.

Use it very sparingly ...
Clean with isopropyl alcohol...
Use a DUSTER can or EMPTY air brush
to blow out

And apply with a tooth-pick

Remember ... sparingly

Try cleaning off the little button (focus button) it sounds as if it is blocked and can not make up its mind where to focus. Also, you could (and should now) exchange the camera from where you purchased it-before the 30 days most stores give for a return is over.

Olympus FE-230 Digital problem

Someone on here with the same problem mentioned that they shook the camera violently and it fixed the problem of it not focusing. I tried the same thing and actually gave it some light slaps on the tabletop. Well, now it works! I'm somewhat concerned that this fix won't last long.

Like many others' FE-230s, this camera began not focusing shortly after the one year warranty expired. I found my receipt and it turns out that I purchased the 2 year service plan at Best Buy and could get the camera replaced. But, now it works. Will it fail again after the 2 year plan expires? Jeez....
