Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX3 Digital Camera
When camera turns on it goes to say turn off camera and turn back on. I got the shutter closed and then it would not open.. I finally got it open and it does not close. It continues to say turn off and back on. I blew air in it to see if that would blow out any dust.. Any suggestions. I have had camera just one year. Thanks! Gina
When you look at the camera from a horizontal viewpoit, you can see that the lens mechanism looks like Leaning a little?
You can hear the drive trying to move the lens but it doesn't? bud
The error message on the screen instructs you to turn off the camera then turn it back on.
When do this the same message re-appears.
So may camera had dropped down resulting in the lens not retracting when the camera is turned off.
Solution: All moving parts and their relative position must be checked. (Recommended an authorized service shop at your area.)

Hi alot of people have been having this problem its usually either bit of grit stuck down side of lense or could be the lens motor failing.
One thing you can try is banging the camera into the palm of you hand not to hard but doing this got my camera working again failing this.
Are you sure the battery is fully charged and will the camera come on without it been in take picture mode can you put it into look at photos stored on device this would tell you the battery is fine.
If the camera has been put down with the lense out and any pressure put on it this will damage the lense motor.
The problem with the motor failing is that you cant get it repaired they dont sell the parts and also no shop will take on any repairs for your type of camera so just try giving it few taps in your hand to free any dirt stuck down side of lense.
Also when you switch it on try pulling the lense out this might also free the lense allowing it to work let me know how you get on ok
