I spoke to Panasonic Technical support and they are arranging for me to return the camera to them. They say there a problem with the sensor
Expert:  Richard replied 2 months ago.

ok.. I would have liked to rule out an issue with the firmware as this can cause this, but a replacement of the camera will of course solve this.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
