SOURCE: I can't get my camera (Lumix DMC-FZ50) to take

Were these cards from another camera and now you want to start using them in the Lumix? If so, you must format the card in the Lumix to get it to work. This will erase the card so download any pics first.

Testimonial: "One thing I forgot to include was that I can't format the card in the Lumix camera because whenever I turn it on all the camera will display is the "MEMORY CARD ERROR..." message, ie I can't do anything else. Thanks for your help. Any other suggestions?"

If you can view the pictures previously taken with the camera on the camera LCD, but the new photos just come out black, this is most probably a blown ccd.

This is a expensive component to replace, and you will also need specialized equipment to do this yourself.

I would suggest that you take your camera to your nearest repair shop and let them test the ccd.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
