Similar to another posting, after turning on, any button I press causes disk to eject making camera unusable. Ironically, the eject button does not do anything. You guessed a switch inside the DVD door was probably faulty. Is there a way for me to test your guess to see if that is my problem and is this something I can fix myself? Called Panasonic and got a quote for over $200 for diagnosis and repair which I thought was too steep considering the current value of the camera.

Re: any button causes disk to eject
In your case i dont think your door switch is faulty, i think that a faulty switch that is on the same key line as the eject switch is causing this. The cause can also be on the main pcb, like a faulty microprocessor.

If not already done so, check the instruction manual (on-line if you don't have a copy) to see if there is anything about this in the troubleshooting guide - it may have a key combination on the remote or similar to force eject the disk. Failing this, if you can open the outer flap of the disk drawer without forcing it, you may find a small reset hole which can eject the disk manually by using something like a straightened paper clip to put into the hole and press the recessed button that is accessible via the hole. It can be a little difficult to find as depending on the design of the TV, it can be obscured behind the plastic of the TV body. Don't be tempted to force the disk drawer out as this can knacker the mechanism completely. BTW, if the disk is not a pre-recorded disk, (recorded yourself), this can cause an error like this - powering everything off and then pressing and holding the eject button as you power up may result in an eject. Hope it helps!
The disc tray does not eject when the OPEN/CLOSE button is pressed.
Follow the steps below to troubleshoot this issue. IMPORTANT: The
disc tray will not open while a disc is loading; this is normal
operation. If this is the case, wait until the disc is finished loading
before pressing the OPEN/CLOSE button to open the disc tray.
Make sure the disc tray is not locked; if necessary,
Perform a power reset.
Press and hold the POWER button for 10 seconds until the BD player turns off.
After the BD player turns off, press the POWER button again to turn it back on.
Attempt to open the disc tray by pressing the OPEN/CLOSE button on the front of the BD player.
If the disc tray still does not open and a disc is stuck inside, follow the steps below to force the disc tray to eject:
Turn off the BD player.
Turn the BD player back on.
Immediately after POWER ON is displayed, press the STOP button on the front of the player. IMPORTANT: Only use the STOP button on the front of the BD player. The remote control cannot be used for this operation. NOTES:
The disc tray should eject and the BD player will turn off. If it does not eject, repeat steps A-C.
It may be necessary to press the STOP button in step C two or three times.
If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required
You can press the eject button on the drive behind the front panel or connect the ribbon cable from the drive to a PC to eject it. More instructions are on my website here:
