What video editing software for Panasonic DMC-TZ7

Till now, there is no such software which can edit mts file. What people usually do is to convert mts to other regular format first, then use Windows Movie Maker, Sony vegas or other edit tools to do some editing.
I always use Pavtube Video Converter(http://www.pavtube.com/video_converter/) to help me convert mts files to other formats supported by my edit tool. For example, i tried to convert mts to wmv to import my Windows Movie Maker for editing.

Spilled some coca cola on my camera. The on/off

I am reliably informed if the cola was sweetened with sugar only a strip-down and manual cleaning has a chance of working. If sugar-free an aerosol of plastic friendly contact cleaner might work.

Upon trying to turn camera Panasonic DMC-ZS3 on,

I don't know that I can help you fix it, but I can try. Here are my thoughts... Check the battery first. If it's like a normal battery, like AA or AAA batteries, replace them and try turning it on.
If it's a flat lithium battery that you recharge using a power cord that plugs into the camera, you might want to buy a new one. Charge it fully over night and try powering the camera up in the morning.
You never mentioned what the error message was! So I can't help you there.
Next, you might try connecting the camera to your computer and see if it comes up. Also, check with Panasonic and see if there's a way to reset your camera. Maybe there's a way to do a software reset. Also check to see that there isn't a downloadable software upgrade or patch available. Lastly, you may want to consider Panasonic customer support/technical support, they may be able to better help you diagnose the issue with your camera.
I have a Lumix too. I have an DMC LZ10, my daughter has a DMC TZ3. They're similar in many ways, and yet they're different in many too. Mine uses AA batteries, hers uses a flat lithium rechargeable that uses a power cord. The internal software is pretty much the same (sort of). Enough so that I can work the settings on hers without having to reference the manual.
As a computer tech, my first impressions are that you're having either power issues, or software issues. Eliminate the variables. Start with power and work your way out from there. If it behaves the same with any battery, you've eliminated the power issue. Now it's software. Simple enough?

Only option if the unit is not warranted, is to go to the website http://shop.panasonic.com/search/?dotcms_full_category_ids=c43fe82f-e702-4495-804a-8b6fae11067c&support=y Put in your model. Go to the last tab on the right and see if there is a firmware update then install it.

I have black spots on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 lens camera

If you want to know if these spots are on the sensor. Or you want to exclude this, You could try this: Put the camera in A priority. (manual mode). Turn the aperture to the highest setting. Greatest figure like f 22 I can't find the exact figure. It could be it is only 8. Then in a bright light, take a picture of a white sheet of paper. The picture that comes out, should be checked on dark spots. If they are there the spots are on the sensor. If you can't find the spots on the white picture, something else is wrong.
