Hi Sarah I am Vortash it shouldnt need to be a new camera a good clean out by an engineer should cure the problem provided you havent tried to force the lens back in if it was out , he will clean it with white spirit or alchahol and re set the lens mechanism and it shuold be fine .. but get an estimate first as the economics may be in favour of a new camera if it would cost too much .. in the uk here we charge approx $25 for that but it may be more over the pond .. regards Vortash

Camera was placed in a dusty/dirty environment. Now when turned on the lens tries to come out but dose not open. What can I do ??


Dust or dirt will do it, especially around the gaps of the lens barrels (a single grain of sand can jam it). Recommend trying the sliding paper and vacuum fixes of this article.

I have a Panasonic DMC-lz7 te works ok, the only problem is the button to take the pictures does not work. i press it and nothing happens it seems as if someone dropped it what can i do?? thanks :)


If the button moves up and down but nothing happens, then there's nothing you can do yourself. It will need service. If it's stuck in the down position, you might try attaching some tape to it and pulling up.

How can I clean the INSIDE of a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ7 lens?


Unscrew the entire lens assembly from the body. The inner lens cannot get debris inside it but the outside of it and the inside of the protector lens can. It's a good idea to do this cleaning in your bathroom with the shower on hot but not visibly steamy as this will cut the airborne dust by 90%.

The lens is stuck


The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

Says turn camera off and turn on again


This message appears when force has been applied to the lens. You may need service.

Lens is stuck in the extended position. Turn off and on and it emits 2 buzzing noise like it's trying to retract the lens and then this error message pops up: system error (focus)


There could be sand or dirt in the mechanism. This would mean getting the camera serviced. With Canon cameras with similar problems, some people have found gently applying a twisting, pushing or pulling force to the lens barrel has freed it up. Good luck!

Lense stuck out and can't take pictures


In all probabilities, the lens barrel must have tilted, preventing the lens from retracting into the barrel. It could also be possible that some dust particles got stuck in between the segments of the lens barrel. Check for these. Try to straighten the barrel without using much force, and try to remove any dust particle that got stuck between the segments.

Lens cover only opens half-way


If the lens barrel isn't fully extending on power up, that will prevent the lens cover shutters from springing open. There is a stationary prong that pushes the cover closed when the barrel is retracted.

Does the camera work otherwise? Take pictures thru the half open lens?
