Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS75 Digital Camera
This happens when there is a serous error in the camera. Shutting it down and switching it on, it allows the camera to start its program again.
If it does not help, try to remove the battery and after a minute or so replace it. Sometimes recharging of the battery will help too, but I can't promise that.

SOURCE: the camera says please turn
I too have the sam problem but was able to solve it. I called the 1-800-number and was told that this is a very common issue or this camera. They told me to tap the lens when it was extended on a cloth or towel so not to damage it. The point was that there is often a piece of dirt or sand preventing the lens from retracting properly. Guess what, a single grain of sand came out when I tapped the lens and the camera worked perfectly ever since. I looked in the camera case since I keep the camera in it all the time and there were a few grains of sand that had somehow gotten into the lens!
I hope this can help someone else out.

This recently happened to me and I too got a hefty quote from the company since mine was no longer under warranty. I figured since it was trash anyways, I might as well take it apart and see if I could figure out what was broken. After removing all of the screws and removing the top pin strip from the board (there is a piece of tape on it) and flipping the lens part away from the board, I was able to remove the small gear compartment on the side of the lens housing (held on by one small screw) and the 3 screws on the back of the lens and carefully flip out the digital camera part and push the lens back into it's original closed position. I then carefully reinserted the digital part back into the lens making sure everything was nice and flush and closed it back up. Works like new :D However, if you're nervous about digital machines, I wouldn't reccomend doing this. Luckily for me when my camera fell it simply knocked the digital lens out from the housing and it didn't pop back in right afterwards, causing the lens to not be able to turn completely like it should. If yours is damaged more than this, it may not be such an easy fix. And the camera is difficult to handle as it is connected by those pin strips everywhere. It made me nervous to handle it as I probably could have made it worse, but, I had nothing to lose. Hope this helps out the next person.
