My lumix dc20 when turned on displays this battery cannot be used. Any ideas please

1) Incorrect battery, use genuine battery. 2) My Canon 400D had a similar problem. Checks showed that I had a damaged standard 18mm to 55mm lense unit, and also gave me "change battery" error message. I had a similar problem with a 70-300m lens. The camera main lense needed repairs, the Tacumar lense was not worth repairing. Have a camera specialist check your camera and more specific the main lense unit.

When you turn the camera on the lense opens and the camera shuts off with the lense still open. I turn on again and the lense closes and then shuts off.

Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

Zoom Error

this usually happens when you turn on the camera with the lense cover still on. just turn it off and remove the lense cover and turn it back on again. hope this helps.

"Cover opened" error message

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.

Camera lense stuck in

Gear box problem ( not so expensive to repair ) or lens impacted ( this type of problem can be sorted out only by replacing the entire lens unit and is often uneconomical ).
