Hi Anthony,

My name isXXXXX will assist you with your Panasonic Lumix Camera. I am sorry to hear that happened. I am not sure if you can do this since some of the buttons are not working, give it a try please and let me know if it works. Remove the battery and then hold the power button down for 30 seconds, then reinsert the battery and hold the power button for 10 seconds, then follow these steps please>1. Set the mode dial to P.
2. Press the menu/set button.
3. Select the setup option.
4. Scroll through the setup listings until you get to 'reset'.
5. Select the reset option to reset your camera.

Once the camera has reset, you will need to turn it off and back on again. You will then be prompted to set the date and time.
