Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera Problem

Recently my FZ5 has begun to ignore all inputs from buttons. When I turn it on, I am able to operate in whatever mode it is in once. So I can take 1 picture, or one video. So I guess you could say I am able to hit the "take a picture" button once.

Once I take the picture or video, I must turn the camera off and back on again to take another picture or video.

I disassembled the camera, removed the tiny battery that keeps the settings, and waited over night. I reassembled the camera and it still only allows me to take one picture. Now it also says I need to set the clock.

Possibly the shutter release (the "take a picture button") or the mechanism under it is getting stuck down and not coming back up to let you take a second shot.

Try cleaning under there with a can of compressed air. Be careful because the release button is super fragile - looks big but only held on underneath by a tiny stalk about the size of a pin (I know because mine broke off when the camera dropped). Panasonics are light but fragile, others, like Sony, heavier but much more solid.

When half press the shutter button, the camera immedietly snaps a picture, it does not focus on the object or get the correct exposure.
