Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup - Press Ok- right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.

My memory card was not in my Panasonic Lumix digital camera when I shot some photos. It said that it is stored in the buit -in memory . a- how do I retrieve the photos to store on my computer? b-how...


In the menu there is an entry for "copy" which gives you the option to copy the internal memory to a memory card for easy downloading. Then, when the pics are safely on the card, take it out of the camera and go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory.

Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

There is a little, and I mean little, lever on the top left, and if it's in a Locked positions...it is "protected"...move the lever to the Unlocked position and you shouldn't have any problem.

Small scratch on front lens causing shadow on some photos, in particular on clear blue sky when a small area in the photo appears slightly deeper blue than the rest.


You have only two fix options:-

1. Get the front lens element replaced by Panasonic. This will be fairly expensive. Afterwards, buy and fit a skylight filter to protect the lens.

2. Buy a skylight filter to protect the front of the lens from further damage and use photo processing software to retouch the affected images. This won't necessarily cost much, but will be a real pain to have to do all the time.

Whatever you do, do not attempt to polish out the scratch as this will destroy the lens coatings and will also reshape the lens slightly ruining it's optical qualities.

Cant take photos as it says the card is write protected


Take your memory card out of the camera and switch the position of the little "lock" tab. That should fix it and you can start saving images.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
