Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Digital Camera
Worked fine last night, then this morning: when turning off lens will not come back in and close. When I try to take a pic, I get "Please turn camera off and then on again." Almost like the lens is stuck. Help?! Thank you.

I recently had this problem after a trip to a sandy beach. The solution was to take the camera apart and blow out all the sand and dust. To help you get it apart, take off all the obvious outside screws and then unhinge the back and front, with the hinge point being the top. The back and screen can easily be removed by tugging on the cables where they fix into the circuit board. (Just push the large cable back in, for the smaller cable you need to use the little hinge on it (initially put the hinge towards the edge of the camera, insert the small cable, then fold the hinge back towards the centre of the camera. Continue to take out small silver coloured screws with a jeweler's screwdriver. I was able to get to the elecromechanical optical train in this way. I did not have to remove the tiny black screws inside this unit. After thorough cleaning and blowing out dust/ sand etc. the camera was fairly easy to put back together. Total time was about 90 minutes. Note: there was no need to take off any of the buttons on the top, nor to take out the battery nor memory card. Good luck.

SOURCE: Sanyo VPC-E760 Lens not closing
ugh! I have the exact same problem! It said lens error, so I turned it off. Now it will not come back on and the lens will not close, it is stuck out. This is so frustrating, any ideas how to fix it?

SOURCE: Lens Cover Won't Open
NO Super glue this can be fixed pretty easily to get fixed. most local shops will not charge you to much to fix it maybe 15 to 20 at the most i figure. or you can remove the lens cover by putting a very small flat head screw driver on the side of the lens and with the camera off pull away from the camera and it should just pop off. Superglue if you get it on the lens will rune the whole thing. Just tiring to help out . I repair lens shutters all the time they are just mechanical parts nothing really special about them.
