Hi, bought an XZ-2 a few months ago, very happy.
Taken lots of photos.
A few weeks ago dropped it on the road! No apparent damage. Have taken quite a few photos since.
This morning I was taking photos of a painting. I noticed one side of the painting was out of focus and figured it was depth of field being too shallow.
While fiddling with the camera settings it's just gone dead. The battery won't charge through the camera. The lens is frozen at the open position. No life at all.
As far as I can remember the battery was half charged.
Couldn't find any data for troubleshooting this. Wondered if their is a reset method - eg hold down two buttons and stand on left leg etc
But seriously, any suggestions very welcome. !
thanks in advance
(PS yes I know now not to drop it )

Looks like the lens has jammed, there is not a lot you can do apart from sending if off for repair.
Thanks Paul, yes I was trying to avoid sending it away but I think you are right
Thanks for the feedback!
Hi Paul, I just found the answer - same problem with the xz-1 apparently - the trick was to take the battery out for half and hour and then replace it - works now ....??
Had the same with my XZ1, thought it was knackered, was just a flat battery too charge it on the mains, may just work. Chen
Thanks Chen, yes it is working now thank you. Gah, I was dreading sending it away with the lens jammed open,
cheers from ox
