The issue lies with the lens assembly electronics and/or motor. If possible try another lens. If that one works it is the lens. If it doesn't, it might be the switch control for the zoom action.

Does it say anything about the lever under zoom levers in your owner's manual?

Unfortunately no. You can get better video if you turn off auto focus and set the zoom position to the halfway mark . This set up will significantly improve your results.

You've got two possibilities.

Remove the memory card before connecting your camera to your computer.

Use the "Copy" command in the Playback menu to copy photos from the internal memory to the memory card, then transfer them fro the memory card as usual.

The "Copy" command is on page 108 of the manual: http://www.fixya.com/support/p509855-panasonic_lumix_dmc_fz8_digital_camera/manual-30307

When you have to ask this question, my guess? you better don't try this.
But if you don't mind how this ends, you could try ifixit dot com. There they have manuals, videos and hints how to repair electronic stuff. They eventually can help you with the correct tools and pare parts, if needed.

This is called focus pumping, and can occur. Nothing to worry about. If the camera has enough light or there is lots of contrast in the object you want to take a picture of, it will be less. The correct focus is found quicker.
Every camera in autofocus, needs to find the correct focus. Only the bigger and expensive DSLR's, will focus a little faster then the compact camera's. Still Every digital camera has this effect, although not every on is as observing as you I think.
Only when it takes several seconds every time you want to take a picture, it could be an error. But when it was on focus and you want to shoot a second picture from the same situation, and is is quick in focus again. Your camera is ok.

In your menu's look for the entry named "conversion" make sure that it is "off" it seems when this mode is on, flash is forced off.

It's the dial on the top of the camera, marked with P, A, S, M, and six icon. See page 20 of this manual.
