FZ1000 broke after nearly 3.5 years of use

Not having great luck with Panasonic cameras. The back wheel broke on the FZ200 after a few years of use. Now the back wheel is ok on the FZ1000 but the telephoto/wide toggle on top gave out. I have used the camera since July 2014. I can now take a photo at 25mm or at 400 mm but nothing in between as as soon as I touch toggle it goes from one end of the range to the other end. Also all the menus keep switching automatically very fast and unable to set it anything . Removed the battery, let it rest for a day and still broken

Does anyboby have any suggestions other than getting a new one on Black Friday. I find the FZ2500 too expensive so I guess will have to buy it again.

Here is one of many photos taken with my beloved FZ1000.
