Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera
I just had this problem, too. I basically disassembled the camera by removing the back cover, front cover, and top assembly. The top assembly includes a plastic part between a circuit board and the top external metal piece that houses the button on the top of the camera. On the circuit board there is a switch for the zoom that looks like a pinball flipper. You have to make sure that it's working properly and you may have to remove the metal dust cap and remove any sand if it's lodged in the mechanism. It's pretty tough if you're not good with your hands because it's extremely small. I did this and the zoom began working like normal again, but then I got the message that the camera needs to be turned on and off every time I turn on the camera...

Tips for a great answer:
It is possible that the error is due to failure of the camera's main control system. You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
The fault seems likely that the camera can have a stuck up mechanism or a jammed shutter. Hence unless you are familiar with handling of small devices must the camera be opened. If so check the voltage on the motor drive, check the auto focus and Zoom drives, it must be free with manual movement. If jammed the motor can be removed and realased. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.
