Recently my FZ5 has begun to ignore all inputs from buttons. When I turn it on, I am able to operate in whatever mode it is in once. So I can take 1 picture, or one video. So I guess you could say I am able to hit the "take a picture" button once.
Once I take the picture or video, I must turn the camera off and back on again to take another picture or video.
I disassembled the camera, removed the tiny battery that keeps the settings, and waited over night. I reassembled the camera and it still only allows me to take one picture. Now it also says I need to set the clock.

I called the dealer and he told me that the CD-Receiver is sensitive to voltage and it is possibly locked due to an unexpected rise during ignition. The unit has a reset button on the AUX (mini jack) port and after reset, it begun to work properly again. Only trouble now is I have to set my sound and tuner preferences again. No problem :-)
Have you tried selecting a different input( do you have the remote?), if so have you set your input to accept HD input ( you access this thru your 'Menu" button on your remote). I run my HD input from my game console (X-Box 360) and have to select HDTV input channel (there are 2 of them along with 2 cable inputs), and have not had a problem with this at all. good luck.
i'm on a mac. Use Image Capture (in your Applications folder) to download the video.
In IC you can select "Download Some", see the files on the camera, and
select just the ones you want to download. With a big file I
recommend doing one at a time. Set it to Download to your Desktop, and
be patient. Ignore the blue Progress bar, as it seems to go from 0 to
100 very quickly, when in fact the process has just begun. It may seem
like nothing is happening, but wait long enough and it should complete.
Possibly the shutter release (the "take a picture button") or the mechanism under it is getting stuck down and not coming back up to let you take a second shot.
Try cleaning under there with a can of compressed air. Be careful because the release button is super fragile - looks big but only held on underneath by a tiny stalk about the size of a pin (I know because mine broke off when the camera dropped). Panasonics are light but fragile, others, like Sony, heavier but much more solid.
My golden rule with any digital camera is to ignore the cr@p software that comes with it - it is NOT required to download the photos off the camera. Simply (assuming you're using Windows XP) goto "My Computer", select the removable drive that is the camera (e.g. drive E:), go down a few levels of folders and you will see the files - select and copy or cut.
