lets start with the basics, try hard reseting it and try again, if that doesnt work then
try upgrading your firmware (if possible on your camera) and if that doesnt work then it may be the lens, but dont forget to spend a few hours trying to find a option for it in the meny

SOURCE: camera focus error
there is a small logic circuit that controls the motor that retracts the lens and a sensor that tells it the lens is retracted, it is a lens position sensor, one of these two components is most likely defective, the thing is there are no consumer service info provided by panasonic, they will not sell you parts either, the camera is a mystery to take apart and repair without the tech manual which u can't get, so u see the delima here, u must either have this camera fixed by a panasonic repair station or see if it qualifies for a upgrade exchange program for a newer model.

I have experience this unfortunately the drive mechanics
motor and more so the gears are plastic when mine dropped it broke a tooth on the gear off the drive motor that drives the worm gear that extends and retracts the lens assembly. this sad to say but the units are not repairable and the assembly has to be replaced owen to the fact that it really is cheaper to replace the assembly than try and repair it.

Testimonial: "thank you. i had heard this before. after wiggling the lens it will go in and out now."
Canon SD870 IS. Lense Error. Would not retract on power-down. Lense error reported when retracting zoom.
Noticed the rectangular frame about the lens was rotated off center. Manually rotated (squared-up) the lens rectangle while repeatedly powering the camera on and off. Modulating the power allowed for easier rotation of the rectangular lens frame.
Once the lens frame was square with the body of the camera, the lens completely retracted on power-down, and also zoomed in/out without error.
