Your camera has a lens error, this is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!

Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Panasonic service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.

If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-

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 tryinitializing the Cameraif you're able to access the Menu items on the Camera. The Initialize option will be available under Setup or Main settingsSub 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.

After I take a photo my camera says it's "busy, please wait" for about 10 seconds. I bought and formatted a new SD 4 GB card and it stopped doing that, so I thought it was good. After about a week, it...


I was having the same problem and contacted Casio. The issue seems to be that there are pictures/video on your internal camera memory which is conflicting with the memory card. Here is the fix:
Turn of the camera and take out your memory card Turn on the camera, click menu, setup, hit the up circle twice and click reset and click reset again until the camera resets
Then click menu again, setup, hit the up circle twice and click format, click format again until the camera formats
(This will delete the pictures from your memory card so make sure you have them saved) Turn off the camera and put your memory card back in, turn the camera on again. Repeat the format process for your memory card and you will be good to go!
