Works on any camera like this

OK you are probably going to think I am loony giving you this advise But No I am completely sane!

Get a can of compressed air OR acces to a compressor at your local garage Get them to fit the triggered air blower tool to it.

Blow around the lens in all the extension joins the firmly slap it in the palm of you hand with the side of the camera making contact with you palm. Do the procedure two or 3 times and inbetween the slaps turn it on to activate the lens mechanism. I have now fixed about 80 of these cameras with this method. I obtained the fix from Sony who charge $90 to do exactly the same. Keep at it as it will eventually work. One tip, make sure the battery is charged before you do this.

When I turn my panasonic lumix tz3 on to take a photo, it struggles to focus and then says 'please turn camera off and then on again'. I do that but it just keeps saying the same thing. Anything I can do??


The problem is in the mechanical part of the lens housing, the motor that extends and retracts the lens is slowly seizing up, or the gears have ware and tare, or they need lubrication. This is a delicate job that require a camera technician to remedy the situation. If you continue to use the camera it will eventually stop working.

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.

Camera when turned on comes up with message PLEASE TURN CAMERA OFF AND THEN ON AGAIN. When I do this it still comes up with same message and wont allow any other operation.


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

I had same problem. I just got the camera working again. Not sure how it exactly happened but while I had it on and it was zooming in and out, I changed the mode and tried to take a pic. It would ask me to turn off and on again which I would do quickly and change the mode to something else like "portrait" or "landscape", etc. and try to take a pic. After a few times it stopped and focused on something. So not very scientific but doing that must have kicked it in the head or something.

Low battery maybe? Try holding camera firmly in one hand, with camera on and in record mode, and strike in on its edge firmly on the heal of your other hand. This technique is often sucessful with temporary camer 'quirks' like freezing, lens not fully retracting, etc.
