Try removing the batteries and MMC card for a few minutes and put it back in. Of course, you will have to disconnect from PC first.

If that still does not work, try on a different PC. If it works there, it could indicate a fault in your PC' USB ports.

Should you still have difficulties, it could be that your camera firmware is corrupt and you may need to get it flashed again. You'll have to take this this to a Panasonic approved service center.
You can find the nearest center HERE.

Hope that helps!

    HI,




    Please check the
    following things when the camera does not turn on.





    Possible causes and how to handle them:


    1. The camera is not
    on





    Turn on the camera.
    (Operation procedure varies between camera models. Please refer to the camera
    user guide supplied with your camera.)Or try removing your battery and the
    memory card from it and for 15min and then put it back in.Also make sure that
    the battery is fully charged.








    2. The rechargeable
    battery is not fully charged.





    Make sure the
    rechargeable battery is fully charged. If the battery has not been used for an
    extended period of time, or if it is being used for the first time, it may not
    be fully charged. In cases like this, fully charge the battery and then
    discharge it completely in the camera several times to bring the battery back
    to its normal performance.











    The rechargeable
    battery's capacity diminishes the longer the battery is used. When the battery
    consumption becomes quicker, the battery life may be at its end. Replace the
    battery with a new one.








    3. The battery
    terminals are dirty.





    When camera does not
    operate with a brand-new alkaline battery (for cameras that use AA-size
    batteries) or with a fully charged rechargeable battery, the terminals may be
    dirty.


    Polish the terminals
    with a dry cloth and make sure the terminals are clean. If the terminals are
    covered with oil from your skin or similar matter, this may cause poor contact
    and power may not be fully supplied to the camera.





    Also, polish the
    battery charger terminals with a dry cloth before charging the battery. If the
    terminals are covered with oil from your skin or similar matter, this may cause
    poor contact and the battery may not be fully charged.





    4. The batteries are
    not installed correctly (for cameras that use AA-size batteries)





    For cameras that use
    AA-size batteries, multiple batteries are used in one camera. Make sure the
    direction of each battery matches the direction indicated on the camera. If any
    of the batteries are improperly inserted, the camera will not operate.





    5. The battery cover
    or CF card (SD card) slot cover is not securely closed





    Most cameras have a
    lock mechanism on the battery cover. The camera will not turn on if the battery
    cover is not locked or securely closed, or if the CF card (SD card) slot cover
    is not securely closed. Make sure these covers are securely closed.


    If your camera does
    not operate after checking each of these things, or if there is any visible
    damage on your camera that could be the cause, please contact the nearest
    Service Center.



    Goodluck..

When I switch on my Panasonic DMC-FZ5, after 15 seconds on the screen appears :"Please turn the camera off and then on again" This happens again and again. I do not use the camera very often...


Hi Hela m remove the memory card and turn on the camera. See the camera show you the same massage or not. If yes then reset the camera and then try with memory card. If not then just format the memory card and then insert the cad in the cam & turn on. After that let me know the result.
