Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9 Digital Camera
The lens on my panasonic dmc fx9 is stuck out and will not retract. there is a clicking noise as the camera tries to zoom out or close when i turn it off but the camera itself still turns on just fine. I want to do this myself, do you have any suggestions to get the lens to work again? thank you
It sounds like you have a gear problem in your lens. If you need some good used parts for your FX9 you may want to contact a guy in South Carolina who has lots of parts for all the Panasonic Cameras at reasonable prices. I think his email is email@example.com

Tips for a great answer:
Here's a fix I got from Panasonic, I figured I would post this since I haven't seen this anywhere on the web and this post was the highest hit on google
Based on the information that you have provided, we suggest that you perform the following operation:
1. Turn off the camera 2. While off, turn the zoom button fully to the left or right (hold for about 3-5 secs) 3. Release then turn the camera back on... At this point in time the lens should retract. If it does not, repeat the previous steps however, press the zoom to the opposite direction than you did the first time around. If this does not resolve the issue, we recommend the product be sent to our Customer Service Center.
This seems to work for me. The lens retracted back in place and my camera resumed working.
