Select spanner(wrench) for setup menu.
Scroll down through the menu, there are five pages of menu items on my camera! it moves to a new page when you move off the bottom.
The language option is the penultimate item - it has an icon of a head with a speech bubble.

TZ5 is a fairly reliable and solid camera. It's been out for a while and there are still no known issues with it.
The ones I've been asked to repair have all been damaged due to owners' negligence (usually been dropped, had sand in lens mechanism or suffered water damage). I still haven't encountered a TZ5 which just suddenly "stopped working".
From a repairman's point of view I can say that TZ5, just as the TZ3 before it, is really really well built. It's easy to dismantle and put together. Everything is well thought of. The lens is a work of art.
Of course you need to be careful with this camera to avoid e.g. water or sand - these might kill your tz5. Sand clogs the lens easily (of course this is an issue with just about any compact camera)
I can definitely recommend it.
Hope this helps,

Check to see if you've accidentally turned it off. Is there an icon of a lightning bolt in a circle with a line through it on the screen?

1. Go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. 2. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the instructions.. 3. After downloading any pictures from the card, insert it into the camera and do the "format" thing again. everything should work now. Remember, never use the computer to format or erase your card...always use the camera. Also, when removing the card from the computer, always use "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen.
