Panasonic lumix dc-sz200.

Post focus set by accident and can't get it off. Pictures have strange blue lights like Christmas lights on them.

I saw that in the manual and haven't a clue what it means. It turned on by accident.

Oh, got it.
You will need this button:

Do you see this now?

Customer Replay

No. I have the bar of plus or minus on the aperture.

Would be really helpful if you could provide me with a picture of what you see.

I fixed it once I saw the drive mode menu. I didn't realize it was a drive mode. One more question. I sometimes have a menu to click on sun,clouds, indoor etc. I can't always find it.

Great that you have fixed it!
To click on the sun is like to focus on it?

Customer Replay

No. There's a menu bar on the bottom

Of the screen?

Customer Replay

It opens sometimes but I don't remember how. One of the buttons in the circle does it. You get a choice of settings with a picture of the sun, clouds, a light bulb etc.

I found it. It was the opposite button. My problem is they sometimes show different menus. I never figured out why.
