You bought damaged equipment. Whether it's the body and lens, or just the body, the seller misrepresented the condition (or it got damaged in transit... you don't say how you acquired it).

hello, and thank you for responding.  Both, body and lense, are still under warranty.  I resetted the body - the monitor error didnt happen again.    The lense - I made several 2-3 film and foto shootings each time around 10-30 shots, just once some (about 5 pictures) came out like this. I went on trying and it didnt happen again.

Do you think these are for shure damages on the products ? is warranty requestable ?

Thanks

You should contact Panasonic to discuss the problem. It might be a firmware issue; hard to say.

I based my thoughts on the information provided. It would not hurt to contact their technical support team. And warranties usually cover the original purchaser. If it hasn't been registered under another name, you're probably okay.
