Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera
Heard the noise thought it was stabilizer mechanism but noise continued even after powering off... removing case confirmed loose screw inside camera (approx 1/4" long). Couldn't remove case entirely - even after removing all visible screws (3 on bottom, 1 ea side and 2 beneath flash hood). Anyone have a similar issue or can tell me where this screw came from or at least how to remove case so I can find out where myself?

SOURCE: lumix dmc-fz20 memory card error
OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.
If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.
If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.
If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:
1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.
Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.
It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.
If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.
