Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have a panasonic DMC-FZ8 Digital Camera. When I switch the camera on, the lens won't open. It says I must "remove lens cap and press fwd button". The problem is that I don't have my lens cap on, but when I do what it said, the lens still won't open to zoom and take pics. Please urgently assist me.

Go into the setup menu and scroll to "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. That might work.

Similar problem -Error message Remove Lens Cap and press button.


After reading di_nick34 solution about removing sand, I removed the lens hood adaptor, and blew air between the gap, re-screw adaptor on. Heard a few clicks - must have broken some minute dust/dirt. Remove hood again, and further blowing. Must have removed the dirt stuck in the gap. Camera now works fine. Hope others with similar problem waill have same success.

Hi my camera is telling me to...


Is the camera turned on? Removed the Cap on the Zoom lens? Try turning it off and on, while the cap cover on the lens is removed, then press the heart button and take some photos. What specifically is the warning?

ERROR REMOVE CAP LENS


I had the same problem with mine after I dropped my camera when it was opening up after turning on. It feel directly on the lens and ever sense has told be to remove the lens cap.

I’ve disassembled the camera and discovered that the zoom motor drive assembly has a small set of plastic gears inside that are quite fragile and like mine are easily broken. You’ll find the zoom motor after taking the back assembly of the camera off. It’s located on the bottom left side of the lens assembly if you're looking at the camera as if you were taking a shot.

Here’s the part no. from the Panasonic support web site.....

For some reason my camera keeps comming up with a "REMOVE LENS CAP AND PRESS > BUTTON" error but the lens cap isn't on the camera :(


it sounds like the lens barrel is out out alignment. Possible the barrel was stuck while it was extended. There is a sensor on the lens barrel asemmbly that must be in the correct position after the camera is turned off. If this doesn't happen then you will get this message..at least this is what I have experienced in my repairs on this camera

LCD showing "remove len cap and press reset button" always


Simple! Read warnings carefully! It said "remove lens cap and press SET button"! So remove the lens cap and then press the SET button (or arrow downward in the four directions button)! You don´t need to RESET anything...
