Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 Digital Camera
Hello, I have stupidly dropped my camera on the lens; now the zoom will not rotate and it stuck at 2x, my wife will kill me!! Is there any chance someone could tell me how to disassemble the camera or get a copy of the repair notes? Best regards, Jason
You may buy it online at panasonic, a less than 9$ expense wich seems correct :
Or you may try with such links as this, but he didn't tell if he gives them for free (probably not !) : http://www.tv-forums.com/forum/TV_Equipment_C4/TV_Repair_Forum_F3/Panasonic_Service_Manual_P47425/
Hope it would help, Didn't find a true free link but that may exist, you should have to browse some more with the help of search engine.

It's incredibly tricky to dissasemble a lens and I wouldn't recommend it unless you have nerves of steel!
A method that I've seen work is to lay the camera on its back so the lens is pointing upwards.. then hold the lens down by pressing your thumbs against the rim.. then while holding it down quite firmly, switch the camera on - you should feel some movement against your thumbs, you're basically trying to resist this movement . Switch the camera off and on again (with your fingers crossed) and see if it worked!
The idea is that this relocates the lens into the correct alignment.
