Remove the batteries for 60 seconds, at the same time press power and hold for the juration of the time, this will remove residual voltage and reset the processor ic, "long shot" if no change the zoom part of the lens is malfunctioning, the zoom motor or gears are jammed.

Hi,
the zoom in the camera is manual, are the lenses moving inside, when you go from 35 to 420 mm?
Have you dropped your camera or has is experienced a shock of some kind? In that case you would need to send it for repairing the lenses, do not attempt to do that on your own.

SOURCE: Lumix DMC-FX01 Buttons not working

Remove the card and battery. Clean the battery contacts inside camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. Be sure battery is charged. Press all buttons on camera. Insert card and then the battery. See if it works. If you can now get into the setup menu, you can do a reset from the menu.

SOURCE: panasonic lumix dmc-fx37. Two error messages are

sounds like the focus and (Optical Image Stabilization)drive motors are bound or broken, sadly this normaly means new camera, unless there are no marks on the case and they wouldn't think that it had been dropped or gotten wet, well ya know, they will normaly repair or replace it as long as it is due to manufacture defect.

Hello

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.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , 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).

Try gently 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.

Another 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 your hand.

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.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

Set camera to P mode.
Press [MENU ] to display the [SETUP] menu
and select the item to set.
The [REC], [CUST. SET MEM.] or [SETUP]
menu settings are reset to the initial
settings.
• [FAVORITE] (P98) is fixed to [OFF] and
[ROTATE DISP.] (P97) is fixed to [ON].

the following settings are also reset.

See page 22 in manual.

This should reset whole camera to factory setting.
