Hello,
First of all, if you point your camera to a place without contrast like blue sky or white wall you can't focus.
To test it, hang a wallpaper on wall and take it's picture or take some picture which has contrast.
It is a know fact that tz10's indoor flash is not good.

If you zoom out too far the lens will obstruct the flash causing a shadow...if you get too close to a subject and use the flash it will also show lens shadow...

The Flash should be used 4-8ft maximum and with lens at wide end...not zoomed...

This is kinda rule "you don't use flash for macro at both indoor or outdoor"

It can be done, but what I do is make sure I shoot the macro in such a position that the flash (lens) shadow doesn't show in the photo or in such a manner that I can crop out the lens shadow leaving the macro subject composed...
