Since the pictures are ok, it doesn't appear to be the sensor. What happens when you bring up the menu? Do you see the lines then? If so, then it most likely is the display.

SOURCE: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ4 black - memory card locked

Remove the SD card and slide the lock switch on it to the unlocked position. If it's already there then slide it fully to locked and then fully back again.

If this fails then you need to try another SD card to see whether it's a camera fault. If the camera is at fault then there's nothing more you can do other than to return the camera to Panasonic for repair.

SOURCE: Video playback problem on lumix dmc tz3

I don't have a solution to the first part of your dilemma (why it won't playback) but I do have a solution for deleting the file.  On your camera are "hidden" file folders.  When you connect your camera to your computer, you probably only see two folders (that's all I see for my DMC-LZ8).  But there are more, and your undeletable picture/video is in one of these folders.  Find the folder and you'll find the file.  Delete it from your camera using the computer to do the command.  Problem solved.  Okay, so how do you find the hidden folders?  I have a Mac, so my process was this:  1) Connect camera to computer; 2) Select/open camera icon (looks like "volume disk"); 3) From top Finder bar, select File then Find;  4) Select the camera volume to limit your search to the camera (not HD or other external hard drives you may have connected to your computer); 5) Select "Kind" and in the next dropdown button "Folders".  Voila.  Happy searching.  My hidden "undeletable" video files were in a folder called "100_PANA".  I selected them then moved them to the Trash.  Be sure to eject your camera properly (don't just turn it off or disconnect it).
Good luck.  I hope this helps.
PS - My theory is that this occurred after an upload to my computer got unexpectedly disconnected before everything finished loading or else the camera got disconnected from the computer incorrectly even if the upload had already finished (see above comment to eject camera properly).  In either case, the blank/black screen, unviewable but "there" on the camera taking up memory photos/videos problem happened to me, too.  The above actions resolved it for me.

Can't download photos from Panasonic Lumix ZS30 camera to pc with Windows XP Media Center edition


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa:

Dropped Lumix has lines on screen


Every time you open an electronic item, it could costs more than one third of its life. So open it 3 times and your not sure it will work again.
Some firms do refurbish electronics. These firms, if they act serious with quality, don't allow more that 2 openings on an apparatus. So you decide, live with some flaws on the screen and still shoot great pictures, or open the camera, hope to change the state to a "better" one, with a chance it will never work.
You could be lucky, but I would suggest not to try to repair this one, till you have a new camera.

My Lumix TZ15 has lines on the display in both camera and replay modes. The photos are ok. Maybe a screen problem?


That sounds like the connection to the display or the display itself is damaged. Check if you have warranty or extended warranty because it would be best to send it back. However if the pictures are fine you should perhaps just live with it.

Vertical lines on screen and part of screen is just black (at bottom).


Hello

OK, usually these lines indicate an internal crack of the LCD screen. The total repair cost including labour will be round about $50.

Feel free to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards

Why does my camera show horizontal lines on the pictures taken by the camera with blurred black and white pictures


OK, I read that sometimes the horizontal lines in some cameras comes from the external memory contacts being dirty. If your camera doesn't have an external memory card, then it's got to be an internal board anomaly.

Under FAQ's I did not see a reference to horizontal lines.

select 'RESET' in the 'SETUP' menu it says in the troubleshooting section of the manual.
