Had the same issue with my DMC-FZ50 for a couple weeks, and tried turning it onn and off countless times. I could hear something happening inside the lens on start-up and surmised the internal shutter was trying to open but wasn't able to. I guessed that the turn off/turn on idea was to resend the command impulse to open the shutter. So.... I t urned it on while repeatedly hitting the side of the lens firmly with the palm of my hand and.....it worked!!!!

    Worked for me, too! Problem started happening the first time I put my newly acquired Olympus FL50 flash unit in the hot shoe. Camera and flash have worked flawlessly together ever since.

Aperture ring won't turn

Mine does exactly the same - still holds all it's stored photos but seems to struggle to focus when turned on, then gives up & comes up with the 'turn camera off' message. Get the feeling it's something to do with whatever makes the camera focus.

System Error (Focus)


The systems control board has detected a problem with the auto focus lens, the focus is controlled by a tiny motor that has jammed or there is a mechanical issue with the camera lens. It will require a technician that is highly skilled to deal with the situation, but the repair cost would probably not be justified.

Focus error


The zoom and focus operate on screw thread drives. 1 of these has detatched resulting in "ZOOM ERROR" and locked the camera up. Dis-assemble lens and re-attach drive.

Camara doesn't take pictures


when a please turn on and off again appears there is normally a fault with or in the lens. I dont like to suggest that the camera must be opened by anyone that is not qualified to do the repairs because these cameras have components in that could be damaged and will only make the problem worse.

Camera error


The problem is the internal focus lens is either stuck, or knocked out of alignment. The lens will need to be serviced, or replaced with a new (not cost effective), or good used lens assembly.
