SOURCE: Lens Cap Error

Hi There, I have the exact same problem, he camera went from working to remove lens cap and press right arrow button, it really does sound like a common fault reading the other messages regarding this camera, sounds expensive to get it fixed as well!

SOURCE: Locked up in alarm to remove lens cap

This is a common problem on this model that is really a design fault. The gears that drive the lens in and out are held in a flimsy mount that can flex and let the gears pop out of place. It is a bit of work to fix, but if you are going to toss the camera otherwise (which you would based on repair cost) you might as well have a go at it. This is a link to the step-by-step instructions. http://www.instructables.com/id/E233WXW4UGEVYDVWN1/ Good luck!!!

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.

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.

Lumix DMC FZ35 Lens Opens and Retracts Continually When Turning the Camera on.

it sounds like it has slipped a gear in the lens.. you could try to manually push the lens in when it comes out and that might reset it but it also might break it.. best is to send it back to panasonic.. is a easy fix

The optical zoom has stopped working on my Panasonic DMC-FZ8. It was working fine, but now moving the zoom control clock/anticlockwise does not move the lens at all. I've tried the...

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.

Not focusing, picture is blurry, lens goes in and out, tells me to turn on and off

Hi,

This seems to happen when the Lens unit in the Camera is stuck and not retracting. The possible troubleshooting steps to resolve this issue are power resetting and factory resetting.
Power reset:
Remove the batteries from the Camera.
Press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds.
Then, reinsert the batteries after 1 minute.
Factory reset:(This can be performed only if the Menu of the Camera is accessible)
To reset the Camera, select the INITIALIZE Option from the SET UP1 Menu of the Camera to OK.
Home-->Settings-->Setup 1-->Initialize-->OK

ERROR REMOVE CAP LENS

I had the same problem with mine after I dropped my camera when it was opening up after turning on. It feel directly on the lens and ever sense has told be to remove the lens cap.

I’ve disassembled the camera and discovered that the zoom motor drive assembly has a small set of plastic gears inside that are quite fragile and like mine are easily broken. You’ll find the zoom motor after taking the back assembly of the camera off. It’s located on the bottom left side of the lens assembly if you're looking at the camera as if you were taking a shot.

Here’s the part no. from the Panasonic support web site.....

FZ18 Lens Cap error message with telephoto converter

I have the same camera, and had the same problem. Make sure the camera is switched off. Then take 2 hard pieces of plastic with sharp ends. Carefully try & jam the outer ring with one, and try turning the converter with the other. I used a mini screwdriver, and left some marks on my camera. Thats why I recomend using plastic of some kind.
When you use the converter, switch off the battery saver in the camera. That way the converter won't jam again, as the camera won't switch off automatically. There is also a programme in the menu that is used for converters and external lenses. It also prevents the lens from retracting completely.
Hope I have helped you.

LCD showing "remove len cap and press reset button" always

Simple! Read warnings carefully! It said "remove lens cap and press SET button"! So remove the lens cap and then press the SET button (or arrow downward in the four directions button)! You don´t need to RESET anything...

Lens Cap Error

I just encountered the same problem, February 2009. I read all the replies here, and then tried "wiggling" the lens gently by pressing on one side then another. It moved perhaps half a millimeter as I kind of wobbled it back and forth a few times. That did the trick, it's fine now.

I had a problem a few months ago with the zoom not going beyond 2X, and then shutting down requiring a re-powerup. I found that by truly "zooming" quickly from start I could run right by the 2X point and could actually sense a little "tug" as it passed the prior shutdown point. Now that problem never comes up again. That gave me a hint then that there is probably some small imperfection (I envision a miniscule grain of sand) moving about in the lens mechanism, and that it causes zoom problems under different circumstances. Now it's working perfectly, and as this camera has been truly great for years now I'm going to keep fiddling with the lens movement if it should go out again.

Although I must admit I'm also tempted to look at the DMC-FZ28 that is recently out - that's an incredible range! After getting so much mileage out of the original, it may be time to lay out the next $300 bucks. But now that the great original is functional again, I'll hold off - maybe for Z38!!!
