Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ7 Digital Camera
Today I turned on my camera to find that it would only half-focus on anything. The lens would not fully extend to focus, and when I tried to zoom it in and out to see it would fall into place, it just retracted fully back into the camera body. Now when I turn it on, I get the "turn camera off and then on again message" after a few seconds. The lens moves a little bit but does not open up or extend. I am thinking some grit may have got into the camera, it worked fine yesterday and hasnt been dropped (that I know of).
Any advice on how to rectify this situation is appreciated.
I had this same problem, when i truned camera on, it would zoom all the way out and the give me the turn off camera screen. after i bought a new camera, i was messing around with the LZ7 and by manually turn the lens while fully extended, i was able to get it back working. two weeks later and still working great. i heard a couple of clicks when twisting the lens and it poped into place and all is good. gl all

I have had the same problem with mine. the problem is sand lodged between the telescoping segments try compressed air and gently tapping it.
