How do I fix a stuck lens stutter (not cover) on a Lumix Camera?

I have a the Lumix DMC-LZ10. I went to use it and it started up, lens move out and screen came on with the HUD but no image. Then I looked into the lens and it appears that the shutter is stuck (not the lens cover) and won't open. I've changed SD card, changed batteries, and took several photo (all came out black). How can I fix it? Thanks.

Unfortunately, this is not a problem that I would attempt myself, and unless you are experienced with micro-electronics I would seriously caution you from attempting it yourself.
This is not an old camera model, do you still have a warranty? If so, I suggest bringing it (or sending it) to the nearest Panasonic authorized repair center.
If it is out of warranty, call and find out what Panasonic charges for servicing this camera model. Typically they have a flat rate for servicing each particular model. You might consider picking one up on Ebay if the repair cost is too high. But please know that this is not like old SLR's which could be repaired at home.

The lens on my panasonic lumix dmc-fx07k camera will not open or extend out. when you turn the camera on it sounds as if it is in the process of opening and coming out, but it does not.


Hi



Thanks for using FixYa. To start with try to blow compressed air around the lens cover so that if there is any dirt it cleans if off. You can also stick a thin strip of paper between the lens shutter and the outer support ring & move it in a way that it clears the debris that's stuck in there. If still the issue is not resolved then you'll have to replace the lens assembly & lens mechanism to fix this issue. It is recommended to be done by a professional. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks

Lumix dmctz2 lens protector gets stuck halfway open


This usually happens due to dust or grit in the camera lens mechanism. I usually dont advise people to fix it themselves but if you are desperate and you need to save the cash and have the patience then follow this article. You will find it worth your while.

Lens cover is stuck half way open on Lumix DMC-TZ3


argh! me, too! i love this camera, but the lens cover is just plain stupid. we used the camera at the beach for a couple days, and i could tell a grain of sand got stuck behind the lens cover. now it is jammed and the camera is totally out of commission. why make a camera built for outdoor conditions, then put a lens cover like that on it!! i can't find a tech who can fix it, either. went to three shops in NYC and all said the cost to deal with it would pretty much buy me a new one... ! :(
