Lens not opening correctly
My Panasonic DMC-FS15 seems to have a problem with the mechanics of opening and shutting the lens. It moves in and out several times rather than opening into position. I then get a message on screen, "Please turn camera off and then on again." I've done this many times with no correction.
Now the lens is stuck in the open position when turning off the camera.
I saw a black material in between the parts of the lens that moves. I am guessing it might be some sort of gasket material. After trying to stick in back in, I went ahead and picked out what was loose.
I love this camera, and would sure appreciate any help anyone might suggest.
Is this a good question?
