Panasonic Lumix System Error (zoom)
The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the
probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the
shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens ,
and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then
try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may
cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and
then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to
not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and
down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the
camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your
camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair
center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to
replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest
you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any
off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about
warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Blank screen on my cordless Panasonic house phone
More than likely you have a bad circuit board behind the LCD. The LCD is the display itself. I've seen where someone did a bad job of soldering job, (cold solder joint created by flow soldering), at the factory. It may have passed quality control initially but one good hard bump and the 'cold solder' joint that was created at the company just got 'born.' It happens. Most of the time it's not a problem, but you will run across this every now and then. It looks like you 'then.' If it's still in warranty, take it back and ask for an exchange. If it's just past warranty, take it back anyway! Usually sellers understand and won't have a problem with an exchange.
Understand...It's not a user fixable thing!

Please turn camera off and then on again. it
Had the same issue with my DMC-FZ50 for a couple weeks, and tried turning it onn and off countless times. I could hear something happening inside the lens on start-up and surmised the internal shutter was trying to open but wasn't able to. I guessed that the turn off/turn on idea was to resend the command impulse to open the shutter. So.... I t urned it on while repeatedly hitting the side of the lens firmly with the palm of my hand and.....it worked!!!!

Will not play any DVD
I may have bad news for you. Here's my story with the PVD4744S.
I watched over an hour of a DVD-video disc one night, no problems. The next night, I played only the intro; then the DVD player gave a message, "This type of disc cannot be played. Please insert another disc." Thereafter, I couldn't play any of several DVDs.
The manual gives little help:
My disappointment is exacerbated by the declining availability of DVD/VHS players with an RF modulator. Maybe Panasonic should create a repair kit for aging devices.

Same here! It would say something along the lines of "this type of disc cannot be played. please insert a different disc." it's the appropriate dvd region, i've tried all types of dvds, and it still won't work. the vhs and cd still works, it's just the dvd player that won't.

My panasonic american fridge freezer has a pool of water beneath the bottom drawer of the fridge compartment
My sympathy. You are having a bad day.
The most likely cause is your defrost evaporation pan (if the refrigerator is frost free and almost all within the last 20 years are) the defroster runs water from the freezer unit (and maybe refrigerator unit) down a tube to a pan under the machine.
You will need to pull the machine out where you can get all around it, find the pan, pull it out (may have water in it) empty the pan, clean the pan (if you have had the machine long, it may be nasty), and then make sure that the tube is clear. Sometimes the part that goes from the tube to the freezer and or refrigerator compartment is tilted down so the water goes into the machine instead of down the tube.
You also need to clean the coils and other parts of the underneath of the refrigerator while you are there.
If this does not fix the problem, you probably need to pay for a service call. Sears is always sending me e-mails telling me how cheap their service is. You may want to check it out before your start as they may give you a "special introductory offer".
