Try this:
1. Turn the camera off.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Turn the camera on. (Yes, while the battery is out.)
4. Hold down the shutter button for 60 seconds.
5. Turn the camera off.
6. Insert the battery.
7. Turn the camera on.

Thank you for your reply.

I have tried that procedure, but it did not work.
I even took camera apart and replaced the very small button cell battery too.
Its a Panasonic ML-621S/ZTN for everyones information....
That did not work either.

Thanks again.
