I had the old System Error (focus) problem on my Lumix TZ8, realized that the focus lens was stucked, after lubricated it, the error dissapeared but the camera won't focus anymore. The only time it is focusing is when zoom si retracted or fully extended. Any ideea what can i do? i really like the camera and don't want to change it. Thank you!

So only £50...
