Good Morning,
My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 will currently not work and is showing 'system error(zoom)' . Would I be able to fix this or do I need to take it for repair?
Many thanks,

We can see if we can fix it here. Usually this is some dirt or sand that got caught in the lens gearing and a trick I have to fix this is to 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
