I had the same problem of it turning on then off. i fixed it by using a shop vac and sucking the lens out a few times. it works now but does make a little more noise starting up but its still cheaper than buying a new camera.
I have the so problem. Since I bought my camera only 6 months ago, I sent it back for warranty repair. They returned it unrepaired, telling me that the problem is not theirs. Apparently, it is caused by internal corrosion. I don't know how the corrosion got in there. Any suggestion on what can be done, short of throwing the camera away, and buying a new one (not Panasonic, for sure).

Your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts. Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

My DMC-TZ3 always displays this message when in aerial mode - I would think that Panasonic programmed this into the setting. You might never have noticed the message before or never used the aerial mode before ??
