The buttons on our DMC-FZ5S camera will not respond. Only the On-Off switch and the shutter button work. It connects to our computer just fine and it switches to the LCD screen when plugged into a computer so that works.

I suspect a software conflict of some kind. How can I reset it without accessing the menu? Panasonic tech support was no help.

ETA: We tried the procedure to remove the battery and pressing all of the buttons.

It's probably mechanical. It may think you're holding the shutter button halfway down to lock focus, and killing all other functions.

Time for the BFH.

Thanks, we were afraid of that. Too bad, it was an old camera but served us very well.
