Panasonic DMC TZ25 compact camera - System Error (Focus)
- Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera (suggested by Andrea Lock, above). I actually had to try this several times as camera was refusing to reset properly, but after a few goes, lens retracted and camera began to work again. Thanks Andrea.
Try cleaning off the little button (focus button) it sounds as if it is blocked and can not make up its mind where to focus. Also, you could (and should now) exchange the camera from where you purchased it-before the 30 days most stores give for a return is over.
Someone on here with the same problem mentioned that they shook the camera violently and it fixed the problem of it not focusing. I tried the same thing and actually gave it some light slaps on the tabletop. Well, now it works! I'm somewhat concerned that this fix won't last long.
Like many others' FE-230s, this camera began not focusing shortly after the one year warranty expired. I found my receipt and it turns out that I purchased the 2 year service plan at Best Buy and could get the camera replaced. But, now it works. Will it fail again after the 2 year plan expires? Jeez....
I've got the same problem! When I turn on my camera, it just won't focus, and askes me to turn it off and on again. My camera is not that new, but it has done a great job all along, I love her x) so I hope I can get some help, please answer to [email protected] ASAP!!!!
