Lens probably does not extend or retract because of debris or a misaligned gear box. The lens can in about 50% of the cases be repaired without having to replace it. Try to return to manufacturer first. If you're out of warranty, there are third party place that fix them such as camera lens repairs. If you want to do it yourself, there are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the replacement part is usually available on ebay.

My Panasonic camera won't focus or shoot and the message displayed is to remove lens cap. What can I do?


There are so many possibilities, what went wrong, or even what you did wrong. When you put your camera in automatic, your lens is clean and you try to focus to something with contrast, it should work. If not, visit a photo store, and ask the staff if they can shoot a picture and tell you if something is wrong with the camera. Not giving more information makes me stop here. The manual, for checking how to setup the camera you ind here:

Lumix DMC-LX3 won´t turn off anymore (after pc connection)


Sounds like you didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function before disconnecting. If it won't turn off by itself, you need to remove the card and then the battery. Press all the buttons and leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery and turn it on. This may work but you may have also have already corrupted the card and possibly the camera. While the card is out, you may want to try to download the pics using a separate card reader.

Error message remove lense capand press "play" button. The lense cap is not on.


The lens is jammed in, either the unit has had a knock or there is debris (sand/grit) in the unit, been to the beach lately.
Check to see if the lens is sitting level with the front of the camera. Unit will probably need to go in for servicing.

Similar problem -Error message Remove Lens Cap and press button.


After reading di_nick34 solution about removing sand, I removed the lens hood adaptor, and blew air between the gap, re-screw adaptor on. Heard a few clicks - must have broken some minute dust/dirt. Remove hood again, and further blowing. Must have removed the dirt stuck in the gap. Camera now works fine. Hope others with similar problem waill have same success.

Hi my camera is telling me to...


Is the camera turned on? Removed the Cap on the Zoom lens? Try turning it off and on, while the cap cover on the lens is removed, then press the heart button and take some photos. What specifically is the warning?

LCD showing "remove len cap and press reset button" always


Simple! Read warnings carefully! It said "remove lens cap and press SET button"! So remove the lens cap and then press the SET button (or arrow downward in the four directions button)! You don´t need to RESET anything...
