Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera
The lens carriage on my FZ5 is stuck or jammed in the fully extended position. When I turn it on it thinks that the lens cover is on and tells me to remove it.
I think it should be pretty easy to fix if I could get into it but I can't seem to find the last screw holding the camera together. It seems to be be near the flash.
Are there any PDF guides for disassembling the camera? I couldn't find anything on the panasonic web site.
Thanks in advance.
I had this issue. You have to dissasemble the whole camera essentially, get the lens assembly off and then get to the back of the lens assembly, then get that off you'll be able to force the lens back onto it's proper track. Unless you do that, you can't move the lens because it's locked into the gears attached to the zoom. There's a security screw holding the back on to the camera by the way, it's right in the center of the flash section, at the back, if you pop it up, you'll see it, you might be able to force a phillips screwdriver to get it off. The problem is just that your lens got knocked off the guide track, but again, you can't fix it without taking the whole thing apart. It's possible though.
