Can you DISABLE WiFi on a Panasonic TZ60 Camera

I love the camera but I press the WiFi button whenever I hold the camera. The grip is so small and the button is right next to it.

SOURCE: g1 phone camera doesnt take pictures

As the others said, there are the two settings. I had a similar problem, then realized how it worked. You need to not press very hard while it focuses first. Then you can press all the way down, if you hold it all the way down, it doesn't recognize that you've already passed the first "Focus" pressure point and gone into the second "Capture" pressure point.

SOURCE: Lens Cap Error

I just encountered the same problem, February 2009. I read all the replies here, and then tried "wiggling" the lens gently by pressing on one side then another. It moved perhaps half a millimeter as I kind of wobbled it back and forth a few times. That did the trick, it's fine now.

I had a problem a few months ago with the zoom not going beyond 2X, and then shutting down requiring a re-powerup. I found that by truly "zooming" quickly from start I could run right by the 2X point and could actually sense a little "tug" as it passed the prior shutdown point. Now that problem never comes up again. That gave me a hint then that there is probably some small imperfection (I envision a miniscule grain of sand) moving about in the lens mechanism, and that it causes zoom problems under different circumstances. Now it's working perfectly, and as this camera has been truly great for years now I'm going to keep fiddling with the lens movement if it should go out again.

Although I must admit I'm also tempted to look at the DMC-FZ28 that is recently out - that's an incredible range! After getting so much mileage out of the original, it may be time to lay out the next $300 bucks. But now that the great original is functional again, I'll hold off - maybe for Z38!!!

I posted a solution yesterday on Fixya, but can't find it. Same problem, same camera, solution reached on Feb 10 2009 after a couple days of frustration. I gently wiggled the lens by pushing my fingers one on either side (not the outer ring, but the inner ring, but keep your fingers off the glass part). It moves perhaps a fraction of a millimeter, but it moves. After I did that, the problem went away. It's hard to describe, just a gentle 3 or 4 times push on either side; you may have to change finger positions to get the movement. It apparently only takes this to get the lens back on track. Good luck, it's a great camera. Lee

SOURCE: Canon IXUS 100IS - 'Lens error, restart camera' message

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Picture Blurry on the Sony DSC-T1

Put it on a tripod, and don't move it until the picture is captured. At the very least, hold it steady for several seconds after you press the shutter button. You are probably moving it while the shutter is still open recording the image. Digitals do this in low light situations. I frequently get caught by this because I think 'Click. I'm done. Move on.'
