Thought this may be of interest to some on here. I haven't heard of it happening to anyone in this forum but maybe it could in the future . . . ?? I don't know ?? Could this happen to our beloved panas :?

The thread relates to dust / or sun damage on the CCD,
Dust should not be a problem with the Lumix FZXX's, the sensor is well inside, its not hermetically sealed tho' long term Atmospheric pollution i.e. gas central heating or condensation internally inside the camera will fog the glass face of the sensor,keep the camera protected as much as possible and at an even temperature.

As for Sun damage a Google search did not come up with any conclusive advice either way,i.e. in relaion to pointing the camera at the Sun.
The setting sun is Ok as its tending to the red end of the
spectrum ie less UV but the Full mid-day Sun may well damage the CCD so care is needed.

I keep the supplied adapter with a 72mm UV Haze filter on my FZ20 at all times. It protects from the sun as well as dust from being sucked into the lense when it extends out. It also protects the lense itself from bumping hazards.

If you get dust on your sensor simply chain up the FZ to the back of your truck and drag it for 2 miles. Mind you not 1 mile or 3 miles, 2 miles:!:
