Dear Bill, It seems that your SD card is corrupted now, you cannot do anything to recover that. try formating it see if it works or not if no then all you need is to replace it with a new SD Card. or you can try out your local photo shops if they have any solutions. SD cards are just like old Floppy disks, no one knows when they get corrupted. Sorry Gagan
Removing the batteries or shutting the camera off while it's loading is just like shutting the power off to your computer while it's loading a page. It sure doesn't like it and can scramble its processor into malfunction. Please start with fresh batteries, format the SD card making sure the slide lock is pushed forward in the unlock position (towards the gold contacts) Load any pictures from the internal memory to the SD card, if any download to the computer and reformat the SD card. Now we have started with a clean memory. The SD card should be formatted every time you download pictures to the computer to keep things clean and running smoothly. To the problem with not taking the picture or taking a long time to take the picture. I'm thinking you have the camera set in a "creative zone" which relays on user input and what has happened is the setting are far beyond "normal hand held photography. This meaning the exposure time is in long seconds and the camera is actually taking a picture (shutter speed for this camera can be as long as 30 seconds) I would suggest until you get use to using this camera that you turn the dial on the top to the "P" (program) mode that way the camera will look after both the shutter and aperture for the scene or subject in front of it. Another thing that could be happening is the self timer has been set for 10 seconds further prolonging what seams like forever in an exposure. See picture.
If this fails the the camera can be rest except for time/date. I'm saying this as there may be a function that has been set in the "Set up Menu" that you are not familiar with and wish nly to continue taking pictures in a more normal fashion. See the include picture which is also on page 95 of your manual.
I would transfer all the pictures to my computer hard drive and then use another sd card - load some pictures on there and then introduce it to HP - if that also does not work then issue is with the picture frame. If it works then hassle is with original sd card. Sometimes reformatting the sd card will restore it to proper operation. Sometimes it will restore but then revert as my card does all the time since it is a sick puppy!
Finally, I have contacted the Panasonic Repair Centre. The answer is the only way to reset the folder no is to bring it back to the repair centre and have it rested there.
Moreover, say there is a file 1000001 in the memory card now. After you use the "No. Reset" function and if you do not format the memory card (in other words, the 1000001 file is still in the card), the new file no will become 1010001 when you take a new picture with this memory card.
Therefore, I will format the memory card before I use the "No. Reset" fuction in order to make the new picture started from 1000001.
