It won't pop out in certain exposure modes, like manual. Try it on auto. If not, GENTLY try to pry it up - sometimes they get stuck from dirt of being hit.

Hi Tami,
Many people experience similar problem but the cause may be different. One of the main cause is an infection by a virus when you connect your camera (SD card) to a computer. All you need to do to find out is - connect the SD card using a card reader to a computer with working virus program and scan it, than try to reformat. If you receive a pop-up message that the card cannot be formatted, you are doomed. Get a replacement card.

Ty Price - thank you! I bought a DMC FX580 off eBay, untested, for $7 + $3 shipping, just for the heck of it. You never know, it could work, right? So I ordered a battery and charger, popped the fully charged battery in, and found it had the dreaded "System Error (FOCUS)"

I decided to Google the problem, and ended up on fixya. I read your suggestions, followed every one in detail and in order, and finally won the lottery with your last suggestion.

I played with the lens by keeping it from extending, preventing it from retracting, and finessing everything in between. I felt for 'give' and when I felt it, I went with it. Three click/snap events with no result, then on the fourth click/snap... wah-lah! I had the screen back, and all functions now work perfectly.

I'm much more comfortable working with things mechanical than things electronic, so I'm delighted that I was able to use physical manipulation to fix this fancy little camera.

That was so much fun - thank you again!

Send it to a Panasonic repair center. If it's under warranty still, then it should be covered. If not , they will give you an estimate.

There is usually a legend near the start of the manual which shows you all of the icons you will see and what they mean.

I downloaded this manual. The manual takes you through step by step on each feature. It has clear images of the icons and what they do.
