Question about Panasonic Cameras
The camera was accidentaly sat on and now trhe camera lens does not close when the camera is turned off.The lens seem to be sitting corectly but the motor only moves it a small amount then stops.
It sounds like it skipped some teeth on the gear. Just take it apart and sync it correctly. Or try pulling on it once it is out as far as it wants to go and force it the rest of the way until it slips back to the right position.

I was thinking along the lines of some kind of fungus if you were in a warm, humid climate.
