Hi, this usually means their is a problem with the lense usually the lense motor has failed or pressure has been put on the lense causing it to go further than where it is.
This can happen if the camera has been turned on whilst in the case or if someone has put the camera down on the lense.
You can try this remove batt and mem card then hold the camera in one hand then hit it into the other hand so your shocking the camera this will free any grit and rule that out as being the problem.
The other thing to try is when you switch it on try and pull the lense out slightly this usually solves the problem.
Failing this then the lense motor is no good and will need replacing.

There is probably something interfering with the lens.

1. Try removing the battery for 5 minutes and see if this resets it.

2. Gently bump the camera on the side in case a gear is stuck or there is some foreign material stuck in by the lens.

3. If neither of these options works, let me know and we can try a couple of other things to try.

thanks

Hello

start with removeing the batterys for a minute and if you know how to reset the camera reset it.

It might be a fault in the lens.

let me know if that doesnt solve the problem.

Lumix DMC FZ35 Lens Opens and Retracts Continually When Turning the Camera on.


it sounds like it has slipped a gear in the lens.. you could try to manually push the lens in when it comes out and that might reset it but it also might break it.. best is to send it back to panasonic.. is a easy fix

It sounds like for sure that one of two things might have happened. Either they rain shorted out a component, or part of the cpu output (that controls the lens assembly). The whizzing sound is the lens assembly drive motor trying to drive the lens gears. Usually this symptom is caused by a jammed lens assembly (damaging the tiny, plastic drive gears), or by some obstruction in the assembly (dirt, sand, lint, etc.). Water wouldn't impede the gears, but could certainly affect the electronic signals to it. Here is a web blog about the problem, and they suggest a number of things to try to fix the problem. http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
If nothing helps, the camera will have to be serviced. Get an estimate first, since the cost of repair can often exceed replacement cost, or come near it. Good luck, and hope this helps.

ERROR REMOVE CAP LENS


I had the same problem with mine after I dropped my camera when it was opening up after turning on. It feel directly on the lens and ever sense has told be to remove the lens cap.

I’ve disassembled the camera and discovered that the zoom motor drive assembly has a small set of plastic gears inside that are quite fragile and like mine are easily broken. You’ll find the zoom motor after taking the back assembly of the camera off. It’s located on the bottom left side of the lens assembly if you're looking at the camera as if you were taking a shot.

Here’s the part no. from the Panasonic support web site.....
