First thing first, which camera did you have? If you can tell us, we are able to help you easier. Reading manual is a must for beginner like you and me but can come later.

It is supposed to extend. Try taking a few more photos. Outdoors or a well lit area would be a good start.

If this thread is serious, and forgive me for having some doubts if it is...then I think that the FZ-20 might be too much camera for you right now, which is fine. That's why they make point-n-shooters, after all. And most cameras out there fall under the P-n-S category. The FZ-20 is more for enthusiasts, folks who take up photography as a hobby and not only read the manual, but research and read up on photography, and digital imaging.

Nick ... i thought this camera was pretty good ... I read the reviews and bought it ... I like to grow into things ... point and shoots look boring.

This is bloody pathetic. You are an idiot like the others who post the same question. Learn the basics of photography and then ask a sensible question!
Buy the way the actual problem is caused by the low light condition causing a long exposure time to be necessary for correct exposure. However this long exposure time will result in some image blur if you cant hold the camera still. I also assume that you cant hold a camera still as you obviously have no idea about the basics of photography.
READ A BOOK, READ THE MANUAL AND COME BACK WHEN YOU HAVE A SENSIBLE QUESTION!

rotate the dial on the top of the camera to the heart ICON.
take an outdoor scene in good light.

the first imageis indoors low light, when posting images keep the camera data with the file.
