Does the camera start up as normal? Is the message intermittent? When does the message appear? (i.e. when zooming, when taking a picture, etc)
Unfortunately this message doesn't have one clear meaning. Or rather, it does - it says "something is wrong with the camera". From what I noticed with Lumix cameras, lens is usually the reason for this. (e.g. if there is a bit of dirt stuck in lens gears you would end up with the same message). If it's dirt in the lens, the solution isn't easy, you either need to have it repaired at panasonic service, get a replacement lens from an otherwise defective donor camera from e.g. ebay and replace it, or alternatively dismantle and clean the lens yourself if you're brave.
On one occassion I saw this message appear due to a problem with flash circuit. Disabling the flash sorted it out.
I would recommend first trying to disable any fancy options in the menu (e.g. flash, image stabiliser, macro, etc) and resetting the settings to factory state via the menu.

I was thinking along the lines of some kind of fungus if you were in a warm, humid climate.
