Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 Digital Camera
The camera don't take pictures anymore. When you turn it on, the lens keep moving forward and reverse, as trying to focus onto something and after a few seconds, I get the message "please turn camera off and then on agin". I can still watch previous pictures and can still connect the camera to the computer. Don't know if it is related but it happened just after I had placed the SD card in a computer SD reader to give someone some pictures and then put it back in the camera. I tried the "not scientific" solution posted here (try to change de mode and try to take pictures until the problem stop) but it won't work!
I had the same problem and did what was advised in the non scientific way. Tap the camera off your leg when its open and this seems to dislodge or re align something and then it worked again. Not a mad hardbang but a smack.

It sounds like the lens focus is stuck - could be sand, dirt or mechanical impact received. I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair - it's not a software problem, but hardware.
I have repaired a lot of Lumix cameras with this problem.
Hope this helps!
