Panasonic FZ5 Does anyone know where I can get a part for my lens. It's a little gear the size of a screw head. Of course my camera is not under warranty.

Hi,

The most cost-effective way to fget this part will most probably be getting a dead/broken donor camera off ebay.
Even if you had a precise part description, part prices are insane if you try to order directly from panasonic or their service suppliers.

Good luck,
Raf

Lumix DMCFZ8

I had the same problem after dropping the camera. In my case, the lens became jammed. Of course your problem may be due to something else. In my case, I disassembed the camera and reassembled it and it now works fine. It was a bit time-consuming to do, but is possible.

I used these instructions, although they are for a somewhat different model. http://www.instructables.com/id/Repair-Stuck-Lens-on-Panasonic-FZ5/

In the case of the FZ5, some people reported being able to get the lens to work by manipulating the lens without taking the camera apart. This might work if the cog inside has slipped off of it's track. In that case it might be possible to work it back into place. If the cog is intact, though, forcing the lens might damage it.

Camera lens will not extend ...

But be super-careful about taking the big cog off the lens. there are two tiny ribbon cables that snap easily.

Remove Lens Cap

We had the same problem with our FZ8. My wife had dropped it and it must've knocked the lens barrel sensor out of whack. I searched google and found a suggestion saying this message occurs when the lens barrel is out of alignment. (http://www.fixya.com/support/t186189-some_reason_camera_keeps_comming_up)

With the lens barrel out, I gently pushed the barrel up, down, left, right and put a little pressure in. Somehow, the barrel worked itself into the right position! The camera works perfectly know. Its worth a shot to save $$$. Be gentle!!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera Problem

Possibly the shutter release (the "take a picture button") or the mechanism under it is getting stuck down and not coming back up to let you take a second shot.

Try cleaning under there with a can of compressed air. Be careful because the release button is super fragile - looks big but only held on underneath by a tiny stalk about the size of a pin (I know because mine broke off when the camera dropped). Panasonics are light but fragile, others, like Sony, heavier but much more solid.

Polarized lens

They definitely work. I just got one in the mail today for an FZ5. Try taking a picture through a glass window to see if it elimates the glare and reflections. This is an way to test the filter.
