Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LC33 Digital Camera
I've had my DMC-LC33 for several years and have never had a problem. Recently it stopped recognizing the memory card (SanDisk 2GB), and the message "No Memory Card" appears in the display. I tried using another memory card, and had the same issue, yet both memory cards work in other cameras, so it's obviously a problem with the camera and not the cards.
I contacted Panasonic, but since it's no longer under warranty, it will cost a minimum of $160 to repair. Before I trash this camera that I love, does anyone here know if there's a simple way to fix this problem? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Hi, I have the same camera. I got the error msg 'Memory card protected', although the SD-card was not in the locked position. I checked the card slot and poked at the spring which checks for the 'SD card locked position' with a toothpick. It's allright again for now.

Hey there richman666, I have had similiar problems with card recognition in the past and the issue seems to have been related to a format problem occurring when you use other programs to alter contents of the card. I solved my problem by reformatting the card in the camera after I deleted all contents using a card reader connected to my computer. Alternately, you may want to try another smaller size card (512mb). Some cameras are not recognizing the new cards with larger memory. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
