Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera

Open Question

Found loose screw in Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ20

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

Hello

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.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

I have a panasonic lumix DMC-FZ20 camera that i installed an 8g memory card but it says memory card error


The DMC-FZ20 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. Your 8GB card is an SDHC card, which fits into the slot but is electronically incompatible.

My DMC-FZ20 turns on but has no image in viewfinder or screen.


I never experienced anything like that with my old FZ20 but with experiences in other cameras I've found a nice, easy way of fixing things tends to be a "hard reboot" I think it's called. Turn the camera on, then remove the battery while it's still on causing the camera to shut down due to power failure. Put the battery back in and IME, all should be well.

The memory card has a small slide lock on it. It may have been inadvertantly locked. Just slide the lock to the other position and try card again.

MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer


The MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer helps correct hand movement from shaky hands, one of the main reasons why cameras produce blurry images. Lumix® Digital Cameras with MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer technology have a built-in gyrosensor that detects any hand movement and relays a signal to a tiny microcomputer inside the camera, which instantly calculates the compensation needed. A linear motor then shifts the Optical Image Stabilizer lens as necessary to guide incoming light from the image straight to the CCD. You won't even notice it working—all you'll see are the outstanding results!
