Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 Digital Camera
I Have a Panasonic DMC-FZ8, and i getting an error REMOVE CAP LENS AND THEN PRESS ENTER....The problem is that There is not CAP LENS On the camera.,,,And because of this error I can not do Anything with my camera....
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.....

THE LENS UNIT IS PROBALLY JAMMED. IT HAS TO BE REMOVED AND STRIPPED. SOMETIMES DIRT IN LENS OR ZOOM MOTOR WILL CAUSE IT TO JAM. IN MORE SERIOUS CASES, ONE OR MORE OF THE LENS FRAMES MIGHT BE DAMAGED. THIS IS USUALLY CAUSED BY THE LENS BEING FORCED IN WHEN EXTENDED. IF THERE IS ANY DAMAGE PARTS THEY WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED.

If the lens won't move, it's safe to assume it is jammed. The question is how to fix it.
