Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX8 Digital Camera
If the lens is jammed in the out position you can try holding the camera firmly and tapping/hitting it against your hand with the camera on. The lens should then retract. If this doesn't work or if you are afraid of dropping it (do it on your bed, that way it doesn't hit the floor if you _do_ drop it), you can drop it on a wood/firm surface from an inch or so up and it should retract the lens. This solution ONLY WORKS IF THE LENS IS JAMMED.

I have the same issue with my FX-01... doesn't appear to be a lens (or lens motor issue) more along the lines of something with the zoom toggle switch... any other ideas?
