    My daughter dropped her Lumix and this problem then occurred, I researched it on the Internet, and found various suggestions. e.g. apply slight pressure to the lens when the camera starts, wipe outside of lens, remove batteries etc. etc. etc. etc..
    I tried everything - every time the camera was turned on the message appeared.
    So I took out the batteries and sd card and stuck the camera in a drawer and bought a new camera.
    Now the interesting bit - one month later, out of interest, I got out the camera, stuck in the battery and an old SD card (I used the Lumix card in my new camera) - AND it started up with no problems!! The problem had gone away - why - different SD card? Some internal memory finally "forgot" it had a problem?, perhaps it just had a long rest? - no idea.
    Anyway its OK now, and I now have 2 cameras.
    Weird - thank goodness I did not bin it!
    So don't dispare - try it - it may work for you.
    ps. With the original sd card in, it still works ok.

Panasonic Lumix TZ3 began Plese shut down turn the camera off and back on again" after every picture of after being on for around 20 to thirty seconds. If I was able to take a picture, it would be displayed up-side-down.. The jpg was correct when downloaded. This happened 16 days after I purchased the camera. (2 days after the return period). I was able to exchange the camera for another, and everything seemed to work, then I began to get up-side-down images again. The only items were the old battery, (freshly charged) and the old memory stick. I was unable to locate a Service Center contact for Panasonic that was of any help. Any suggestions? The camera worked great for the first two weeks I had it, but the same problems with a new camera has me stumped.

Sony cybershot dsc-w290 after a recent dropping of the camera when we turned it back on we get this message "turn the power off and on again" same thing happens each time.


I'm sorry that the Camera is displaying the error message. "TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN" displays on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset. Please follow the below steps to perform a power reset.



·Turn off the camera.
·Remove the battery pack.
·Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
·Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
·Reinsert the battery pack.
·Turn on the camera.

Also try initializing the Cameraif you're able to access the Menu items on the Camera. The Initialize option will be available underSetup or Main settings Sub Menus.
If the issue persists again, service is required. Please click hear to locate the service center near your area.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if your require any clarifications.

Camera was dropped. Now it will turn on, but after a few seconds, lens begins to move in and out for about 3-5 seconds, then a messag is displayed: Pleaase turn camera off then on again". Doing this r


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:
