Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2 Digital Camera
When i move the camera in an up/down motion (gently) there is noticeable feeling of something loose or knocking slightly. I presume its the extending lens and wondered if this is typical for this camera?
Posted by Anonymous on
What you call a "knocking" is the lens element used by the optical stabilizer. This element is in the middle of the lens and it's suspended in magnetically when the camera is powered. The lens element itself shifts up/down and left to right, shifting the image projected on the CCD. This "knocking" or "rattle" is normal.

It's normal, it's noted in the manual.

The problem seems to be with your lens guide it is out of track so please follow the step below,
Try forcing the camera lens but be careful while doing this if something goes wrong your camera our lens can be damage
Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, the problem should be easy to fix.
Simply - VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a "click" as it pops back into place. Try powering the camera back on.
If the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, and then retracts again, do the following. Turn the camera off. Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently take one part of the lens and gently move it round in a circular movement. Do so with both sections of the lens. You will hear a "click" as it pops back in place. Power the camera on.
