SOURCE: ERROR REMOVE CAP LENS
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.

Is your lens not retracting?
I've got the same problem and with the lens not retracting - this is why i get the message.

I had the same problem with a Lumix TZ1.
And this are the instructions to solve it on that camera. But assuming Panasonic build thier camaras similar - yo umigth be able to use it anyways.
When the lens is fully retracted (like if you had a choice!), a silver colored sensor can seen inside the rim. The problem is dirt or moist or something on that sensor.
The camara turned off.
With the edge of some standard printing paper i moved it back and forth, over the sensor a few times.
Turn on the camera. And Zoom.
The first time I could only zoom a little more - but MORE :-) The error message reappeared and the lens auto-retracted. I repreated this several times every time zooming more and more. Sometimes I got the error when retrating the lens, sometimes it got stuck.. But eventually It worked perfectly again.

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
