Usually when this message pops up it indicates the lens position is jammed, you will need a camera technician to assess the item for repair cost.

I had same problem. I just got the camera working again. Not sure how it exactly happened but while I had it on and it was zooming in and out, I changed the mode and tried to take a pic. It would ask me to turn off and on again which I would do quickly and change the mode to something else like "portrait" or "landscape", etc. and try to take a pic. After a few times it stopped and focused on something. So not very scientific but doing that must have kicked it in the head or something.

SOURCE: I have a Lumix DMC FX3..great butr is stuck in

Hmm, looks like the zoom rocker switch might be stuck. To get to the switch you'll need to partially strip the camera. This is a bit fiddly, but should be ok if you are comfortable with taking things apart. I repair cameras as a hobby and in my opinion lumix-es are by far the easiest to take apart and put together.
Remove the battery, unscrew all the screw holding the case making notes which screw goes where (they are not the same). Very carefully lift the back of the case to see two white ribbon cables going to LCD screen. Disconnect them. Once done, remove the front of the case. With both case panels removed pull off the top section (where the power, shutter/zoom buttons sit). This will require a bit of force. Once done, you'll need to undo the plastic cover, there should be a screw or plastic catches holding it onto the small logic board. A word of warning, there is a flash capacitor attached to the board (looks like an AAA battery). This can potentially electrocute you (won't kill you but is not very pleasant) , so try not to touch the tracks/connections on the board. Once you expose the top of the board you'll be able to see the zoom rocker switch (a little silver square thingy with a black bit sticking out). The black bit is the bit which is stuck. Try to move it (gently). It should stay in centre position. Well, that's it. Put the camera together and hopefully it's back to normal.
Good luck!
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ4 black - memory card locked

Remove the SD card and slide the lock switch on it to the unlocked position. If it's already there then slide it fully to locked and then fully back again.

If this fails then you need to try another SD card to see whether it's a camera fault. If the camera is at fault then there's nothing more you can do other than to return the camera to Panasonic for repair.

The lens can not move due to an obstruction.

Gently put some force on the lens, turn the camera on and it works.

The memory card has a small slide lock on it. It may have been inadvertantly locked. Just slide the lock to the other position and try card again.
