Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 Digital Camera
More than one possibility can cause this. Your battery can be on the end of life. Only when the battery works in another camera, of the same model, you can check the capacity. Or with a multimeter, but you must have some electronic skills. Then the contacts on both the battery and in the camera can be dirty or oxidised. Sometimes users manage to put in a battery the wrong way around. This should be virtually impossible with your camera. Try cleaning the contacts in the camera and on the battery, using some cotton swabs. Never use anything sharp.
Then again try charging the battery. Look if the charger light starts green. And is it stops after some time. If you already charged the battery, it could be the light goes out after a few minutes.
If the charger light starts flashing, you know something is wrong with the battery to the connectors. Don't forget to close the battery cover correct. There is a switch, and if the door is not locked correct this switch still indicates open battery door and the camera won't switch on. Check your manual page 17 and 18.

There's a small dial on the left side of the viewfinder (next to the flash button) that allows you to focus the viewfinder. I only found it because I had the same problem - must have knocked it out of focus by accident!

like the Focus and Optical Image Stabilization drive motors are bound
or broken. To fix this wrong will need disasemble the lens unit, focousing unit to do service; if needs, replace the damaged parts and assemble to run normally. Don't do this if your camera is under warranty.
Or, unless there are no marks on the case and they wouldn't think that it had been dropped or gotten wet, well you know, Panasonic will normaly repair or replace it as long as it is due to manufacture defect.
Hope this helps.
