Question about Cameras
Try taking out your batteries and then taking out your memory card. Put back in batteries. Turn on camera.
If this works, just put back in your memory card and try again. Sometimes the memory card hangs and you need to pop it in and out.
This could be any of hundreds of different faults so I'll give you the ones you can check yourself.
One or more of your batteries are faulty.
The battery contacts are dirty.
The batteries are inserted wrongly.
You have a problem with the lens mechanism.
Shake camera and listen for anything rattling around. If metal it could short anything out.
Check your troubleshooting chart in your user's manual.
Is the power switch feeling as if it's actually switching.
Has the camera been dropped or given swimming lessons.
Check all your switches to make sure nothing is disabled.
Apart from these it's impossible to say what's wrong. A trip to a repair shop may be in order.

The lens error is due to failure of the lens control system. You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the Lumix service as you do not have to run around for spares.
