    I bought a TZ90 today. Whilst testing it, the camera locked up. In the display screen was a large icon like a shutter button with the work LOCK above it. I was totally unable to escape and had to do a battery pull to make the camera usable again.

    I can find nothing in the hand book relating to this.
