    Is this normal? After I take a picture, after the camera has been sitting for a while, the camera asks me to turn it off then on. Normal?

    Probably not
    The camera is probably picking up some sort of internal error code and requesting that the camera is cycled off and back on in order to reset itself
    I could be wrong and happy to be corrected here

    I chatted online with a Panasonic rep and was told that it needed to be serviced. I'll sending this back after the holidays.

    Have you installed the latest firmware? Early versions of the camera had problems with the camera locking up and not turning back on.
