Panasonic DMC-TZ3: one day it's working fine, next it won't power on. Tried the "Power Saver" reset technique posted ... didn't work. Battery is fully-charged.

Try removing the battery and the memory card for 1 minute then return them back. Make sure the battery is inserted properly. If that didn't work, try turning it on without the memory card.

Did you get any error message when you try to turn on your camera?

Switch on camera and soon after a message comes up on screen " memory card error please chech the card" check card in another camera card ok. Put another card in camera and got the same message.

It seems maybe there is something wrong with your card slot or the card type isn't suitable for your camera(else you have use before), such as the size of card (some old camera won't use large SD card). Here maybe something help you: digital cameras after holidays

Photos i have taken saved onto the internal memory of my panasonic lumix camera even though there is plenty of space on my sd card. when i pressed play it only showed the photos from the internal memory so...

This is a problem with the memory card. I don't know why your camera is not giving an error message of some kind- it seems to know that it can't store pictures there.

Probably the first thing to try is formatting the card. There is a function in the camera menus to do this. If it won't format or gives an error when you try, then there may be an issue with the connectors in the card slot or the card may be incompatible.

Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards.

SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Card Reader Error

There's a slide switch on one edge of the SD card. Slide it away from the contacts. If that doesn't work, there's a problem with the mechanism inside the camera that detects the switch position.

Memory card likely has temporary(needs formatting) or permanent problems(needs replacing, common for off branded china junk).

First format the mem card on your camera by pressing center Menu button then scrolling down to the end of the menu to Format. If this does not work, and you have bought a Name Brand SD card; Sandisk/Kingston/Patriot etc, return it to place of purchase with receipt, or creditcard use to purchase it, and they will replace it.

i suggest you first try another card to check if the card or the camera is faulty. if it is the canera then it could be the sd card slot that is faulty. this will have to be checked by a qualified panasonic tech.

Message: Memory Card Error - Memory Card Parameter Error on 4gb SDHC card

I recently bought a DMC-TZ3 and have been researching memory cards. Several sites sell cards with the camera and list the card type. I would suggest buying one of these cards. Any cards larger than 2gb must be SDHC type SD cards. There appear to different types of SDHC cards, 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0. Check out for a description. 2.0 cards are not compatable for devices developed prior to 2.0 so that may be the reason for the camera problem. So far I haven't seen anything that states what type SDHC card the camera requires. I found a computer memory site that that sells memory that they say will work. There may be others.
