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.

Faulty zoom operation


This is normal. If you hold the zoom for an extended time the lens is slower than the indicated zoom. Forcing the lens to continue to its zoomed direction.

Panasonic lumix dmc fz18 won't zoom in or out after being dropped from a table. the camera can still take photos but not zoom on playback or while taking photos


The innards of modern DSLRs are precise and fragile. You need to contact a reputable repair shop ASAP. In addition to fixing your camera, they will clean the interior properly, eliminating dust particles that find their way to the CCD. The cleaning is something you should have done from time to time anyway, so just bite the bullet and take it in!

My FZ18 will not zoom. Stuck at wide angle. A msg will sometimes flash when first turned on...CAMERA WILL RETURN TO PREVIOUS ZOOM SETTING...or something like that. It functions otherwise. I have been thru...


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].
• If the [SETUP] menu settings are reset,
the following settings are also reset.

See page 22 in manual.

This should reset whole camera to factory setting.
Cheers.

Camera doesn't respond


Hey bro I have exactly the same problem, when i turn on the damn thing it just zooms right out and just keeps scrolling through the options. I think that it has to be some sort of software problem, there must be a way to reset it!
