Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

I have a panasonic lumix DMC-FZ20 camera that i installed an 8g memory card but it says memory card error


The DMC-FZ20 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. Your 8GB card is an SDHC card, which fits into the slot but is electronically incompatible.

How big a memory card can you put in a DMC-FZ20 camera? I just got an 8 GB card and get "Memory Card Error" all the time.The old 256 MB card works fine.


An 8GB card is not SD, but SDHC (High Capacity). SDHC cards fit the same slot as SD cards, but they are slightly different and many cameras do not work with them.

I have a DMC-FZ20 myself, and use a 1GB card. That is really plenty of space. If you want more (going on holiday?) then just carry a couple of spares. The manual doesn't mention memory cards larger than 1GB. Probably there weren't any when it was written.

Does the panasonic DMC FZ20 take HC SD cards?


I have this camera, and have just tried putting an 8Gb SDHC card into it. As soon as I tried to take a picture I got beeping and "Memory Card Error" across the center of the screen.

I never tried this before because a gigabyte has always been plenty of space for my uses. I suppose you could just carry a few spare smaller memory cards instead of trying to fit a big one. They take up less space than film!

The 8GB card is SDHC, the FZ20 does not support SDHC only standard SD.

The memory card has a small slide lock on it. It may have been inadvertantly locked. Just slide the lock to the other position and try card again.
