Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3 Digital Camera
When i turn on the camera, it acts correctly, but when i try to take a pic, the lense focuses in and out, and then tells me to turn the camera off and back on. This thing is less than a year old, and i have taken good care of it. any ideas? Ive had it off for several weeks, with the hope that the internal battery would reset itsself, but to no avail :(
Some combination of repeated on/off cycling, manually holding the lens in upon restart, and a gently rapping the camera against my desk solved the problem for me.
It's my understanding that a speck of dust or dirt gets stuck in the zoom mechanism and the camera needs some "help" to get it cleared.
