I found 3 grains of sand between the grooves where the lens moves round between the pcb and front casing. I had recently been on a beach holiday! It was tricky to get them out as the electricity/ static was attracting them. I used a wet needle and they clung to it. It was a painstaking process but rather this than spend hundreds on getting panasonic to do the same or buy a new camera.

I had same problem... my kid dropped the camera today... First make sure the lens isn't cocked and make sure the smaller piece of the lens is orientated in the correct direction (make sure it isnt turned at an angle) Next, when you turn it on, you will see the segment of the lens closest to the base of the camera turn. To get my camera going, i had to help it as it turned. As it was spinning clockwise i grabbed the segment that was spinning and turned it past the point it was getting stuck. not too much force. Once I did this it worked fine again. When I shut it off it retracted completely. When I turned it on it worked as normal.

I had the same problem, but could not get those screws to release. Based on your observatoins, I could look into the gap between the lens and the body and I saw a piece of foregn matter there. First i tried a toothbrush, which just moved it around. then I took tore off a small piece of stiff paper , slid it into the gap, and worked out the stuff that was lodged in there. It worked! Good luck!

Comment by bonadrag14: Like many of you, I couldn't justify sending my camera to Panasonic when a new camera would probably cost less. I've stared and cursed many hours, took it to several different places, then gave up. GOOD NEWS!! I think a tiny spec of dirt or sand got lodged in it. Unscrewed the four side screws, tested it and it worked. I don't know if this will solve others' problems, but it worked for me. Maybe it was pressure? I did see something tiny (like a grain of sand) in the middle of my lens INSIDE, and it did move around. But it works, and I'm happy. Again, all I did was unscrew those 4 screws on the sides, not on the bottom. Good luck!

Read my latest comment, it might be a fluke, but it's worth a try to unscrew it because it's not worth sending it back, and the only other thing you could do is sell it on ebay or craiglist for parts. Good Luck! MINE WORKS :)

The zoom wheel does not stop when I want it to. It like it has its "own" will... Once I start zooming it goes all the way until the max. Sometimes when I make it (somehow... I don't know how)...

Hello.

It sounds like your camera's lens is broken. Did you accidentally drop it? When you shake your camera, do you hear something moving inside? Like a loose part? Or looking in the lens do see anything amiss?

Panasonic lumix dmc-fx01

If the dark spot is not focused, it could be on the sensor. Otherwise, check the lens for any dust particles. If you can't find any dust, take the camera to an authorized service center.
