HAHA, I just solved the problem on my camera.

The problem is that the focus has gone "to far" and lost connection to the cogwheel, This is noticed by listening to the camera when it starts up. I gently tapped the camera lens-down against my thigh when the lens came out in it's outermost position.
This made the cogwheel reconnect to the motor and focus was obtained again. Now the camera works fine again.

I would recommend that you take a cleaning cloth between the lens and your leg when doing this to minimize the chance of scratching the lens.

Good Luck

Hi there its happens when the lens not ready for work. Some how its not able to stable his focus method. That's why its stuck. There is a chances of lens guide pin disturbed or damaged & thats why continues failure. Its mean he inform you there is a system error. Another reason is memory card. Remove the card & try. If your card is virus infected the also the couse of this reason. So please visit the service center for repair that. Its a very common & repairable problem. Thanks

I have Panasonic digital camera DMC-LC80. When I turn on camera, it turns off, and on display write "please turn off and on the camera again". I do it, but on display this write again and...


Mine does exactly the same - still holds all it's stored photos but seems to struggle to focus when turned on, then gives up & comes up with the 'turn camera off' message. Get the feeling it's something to do with whatever makes the camera focus.

Panasonic DMC-FX35 error message


Sounds as if it has either received a knock, or foreign matter (grit etc) has got into the lens mechanism.

Software problem


I'm sorry that the Camera is displaying the error message. "TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN" displays on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset. Please follow the below steps to perform a power reset.
  • Turn off the camera.
  • Remove the battery pack.
  • Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
  • Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
  • Reinsert the battery pack.
  • Turn on the camera.

Also try initializing the Camera if you're able to access the Menu items on the Camera. The Initialize option will be available under Setup or Main settings Sub Menus.


If the issue persists again, service is required. Please click hear to locate the service center near your area.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if your require any further assistance.

When powered on, message comes up...


The lens can not move due to a possible obstruction.

Gently put some force on the lens, turn the camera on and it works. I suppose there is too much friction between lens and camera.

Best regards from Holland!
