I can help you with this.Disassemble the right side which includes the lcd display,so you can see the lens unit.Use a blower to blow air inside and point it to the lens.Better if you can remove the lens unit and blow air on it with caution and then assemble it back the problem disappears.
If problem insists remove ccd block and apply inside a small amount of grease on the metal axis inside ois coil which is used for moving coil mechanism for optical stabiliser purposes.CAUTION THIS ONLY IF NO RESALTS WITH THE ABOVE METHOD.GOOD LUCK!
Hi . .
I downloaded the manual . . found I needed to replace the 3 volt lithium battery
located on the underside of the hand grip for the zoom.
Changed the battery . . . No red flashing icon in the viewfinder.
The flashing "boat" in the middle of the viewfinder just means the button battery is dead. Camera will still work. It's the little pull-out light grey plastic thing that's next to the heel of your right hand when you're using the camera normally. You need a CR2025 cell.
If the rectangular symbol has a droplet shape in it as well as the red line across it, it means there is condensation in the camera.
The manual recommends that you take the tape out, leave the mechanism open and allow the camera to dry out in a suitable environment for 2 -3 hours - presumably a warm dry place. It suggests you check it then and even if the warning has now gone out to wait another hour before using the camera again.
I have downloaded a copy of the instruction manual in Adobe Acrobat format from the Panasonic website.
