Recently my FZ20 was left switched on and eventually turned off in powersave mode. I guess it was left like this for about 12 hours (after a party), but when I went to flick the off switch, it powered up. Now it ignores the on/off switch - just powers up coming from the powersave mode.
It still takes pictures perfectly while on, but not being able to switch it off makes the camera pretty useless (i.e. lens doesn't retract, shorter battery life)
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hi,Flash comes automatically in A ( Auto ) mode..if you want to use flash manually as Fill in ,you have to switch the other modes as P, S, M ,modes and open the flash with the little sliding key nearby..
the square with the p in it is telling you the camera is in auto focus mode (it is selected by the mode ring on the top of the camera)
there is a switch on the left side of the lens body which should be set to AF
the camera is now in point and shoot mode which is the best setting unless you know what you are doing with all the manual settings.
to select movie mode turn the mode dial to the movie clip icon
press the menu button and use the directional arrows to select the 30 fps option
this is the highest setting
it will give you about 30 mins recording time with a 1 gig card.
i have a mju300 with the same housing.when i put the camera in the housing it is on but i turn the screen off.this is the button that is next to the screen and next to the ok button.when i want to use the camera i just turn the screen back on.
I have a similar problem with my TX-42F430S; Mine freezes when changing from Comp 1 to Comp 2. unpluging and waiting was the only fix. Just recently my TV just started turning off(after about 30min of watching) and the led will flash blue. I need to unplug for about 10min before it works again. Getting frustrated and I have contacted Westinghouse to send for repair. only had the TV for 3 months; connect to Roger Explorer HD box.
If you know how to open up the camera,the two connecttor from lens module attach to the main PCB have contact problem.you need to make sure they have a good contact.one way is to clean up the contact point and re insert back ,it may help.
Same thing happened to mine 6 months ago. I paid $130.00 for repairs while still under warranty. Waranty is for parts only. Then I left the camera on the roof of my jeep overnight in the rain. Same thing went wrong. It was past the 60 day repair warranty so I took it apart myself and put it back together.
It works fine now. I suspect it was an intermittent contact in the ribbon connector to the rear control unit.
