Need help. My Lumix DMC-FZ30 Has a lightning sign on screen

Customer Question

Need help.
My Lumix DMC-FZ30 Has a lightning sign on screen when I turn it on, and I can't get rid of it. Tried everything, including checking all connections. Owners manual shows it but does not say what causes it nor how to get rid of it.
Nothing works as long as it is on the screen. ***@******.***

Hi Bill

Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

The lightning bolt symbol represents the built-in flash on your DMC-FZ30 camera.

Do you have the flash turned off?

Does the lightning bolt symbol have a line through it?

If so, press the button with the lightning bolt and watch the screen for a lightning bolt and an "a" for auto, then try taking a picture again.
