Can you remove the battery then hold the shutter button down for 60 seconds, then release.
Once done, put the battery back in, turn on the Lumix and tell me please if it now functions.
Let me know the results please

System Error ( Focus ) is still coming up, but there is another very quick display which says " Please set the home area ".

Thanks Graham,
The issue is within the Lens gearing so we need to focus on this area.
Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, very gently press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a "click" as it pops back into place. Try powering the camera back on.
Let me know the results please

I can`t see any difference in the gap between lens and lens housing.

ok, then we need to try to dislodge any dirt that can be stuck in the gearing which can cause this.
Try turning the camera on & off while holding the lens in contact with something that vibrates fairly hard, such as an electric razor. Keep the lens pointing generally down, but move it around and see if this gets it functioning.
Let me know the results please
