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.

SOURCE: panasonic dmc-fz5

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.

SOURCE: Lens Error

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

My Panasonic camera won't focus or shoot and the message displayed is to remove lens cap. What can I do?


There are so many possibilities, what went wrong, or even what you did wrong. When you put your camera in automatic, your lens is clean and you try to focus to something with contrast, it should work. If not, visit a photo store, and ask the staff if they can shoot a picture and tell you if something is wrong with the camera. Not giving more information makes me stop here. The manual, for checking how to setup the camera you ind here:

I have a panasonic FZ38 camera. I'm trying to use


I'd take the batteries and SD card out for a day then try powering it on again. If it asks you to set the time and date when you turn it back on you did it long enough to clear the memory.
Second option is to try another SD card.
Last hope is slide that little lock slider on the side of the SD card and try it in both positions.
Your card may also be full.

My laptop does not have a cd/dvd drive, how do set up my laptop to download pics from my panasonic dmc-fz45 to my laptop via the cable?


You haven't to configure the your pc to download the photos, you need only the usb cable, usually provided with the camera; the cd is for the software of the Lumix to view and edit videos or photos, but you can use any other software you want.

Use the windows movie maker for windows 7 downloadable from microsoft.com's download site.

USERS MANUEL in English needed


Go to the support section of the Panasonic website and enter Lumix FZ35. That's the same camera in the USA. If your camera comes in a color, you will need to add the letter of your color.

Yes, it's normal. You should never try to delete, format, transfer to camera, or anything else with the computer. It's always from camera to computer...never the other way around. And when you're finished downloading, always use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen.
