When turning it on, a message shows: "Turn off th camera and turn it on again" (but in Swedish - bought in Sweden). The lens doesn't retract when turning off.

Select spanner(wrench) for setup menu.
Scroll down through the menu, there are five pages of menu items on my camera! it moves to a new page when you move off the bottom.
The language option is the penultimate item - it has an icon of a head with a speech bubble.

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.

TZ5 is a fairly reliable and solid camera. It's been out for a while and there are still no known issues with it.
The ones I've been asked to repair have all been damaged due to owners' negligence (usually been dropped, had sand in lens mechanism or suffered water damage). I still haven't encountered a TZ5 which just suddenly "stopped working".
From a repairman's point of view I can say that TZ5, just as the TZ3 before it, is really really well built. It's easy to dismantle and put together. Everything is well thought of. The lens is a work of art.
Of course you need to be careful with this camera to avoid e.g. water or sand - these might kill your tz5. Sand clogs the lens easily (of course this is an issue with just about any compact camera)
I can definitely recommend it.
Hope this helps,
