Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ7 Digital Camera
I think this is just a hardware malfunction(some mech. switch) because, i have a lz7 and when i deliberately open the battery case with the camera power on it obviously switches off and then when u close the battery case either with the power on or off the lens comes out fully extending to 6X and goes back fully in and comes back out and auto focuses and then works fine. i think this is normal
but in your case i think there's some manual overdrive or u have some problem with a switching sensor that has fungus or something better get it serviced by the dealer as it is under warranty period

Well if that don't work cause i just got mine working after messing with it for like ten minutes the lens and all gets stuck on mine i just gently put some pressure on retractor lens outside of it when it tries to open and it came out and the message didn't come back checked all the functions worked fine took great pictures and kept them too. so mine works by doing this. hope this helps

I had the same problem the first time I turned it on!!!
How to fix it: When you turn it on the lens will retract and immediately will come back out. What you have to do is remove the batteries while the lens are retracted, very quicly (before they come back out!).
Turn it off. Insert the batteries again and turn it on.
Hope this works for you!
