Odd this has been here five months w/o a response. Apparently you describe a "burned out CCD", the famous "sensor problem", which is frequently mentioned whenever the Digilux 2 is being discussed. It's too bad because I think otherwise it is a wonderful camera. Contact Leica in whatever country you live and see what the current policy is re: repair, and whether the company will stand behind their product. There appears to have been positive response. Good luck.

Hello, I have recently bought a Leica Digilux 1 but I can't use it since it always marks "Memory Card Error". I have tried with three different memory cards and that sign keeps on appearing....


First make sure that any pics on the cards are safely downloaded to your computer. To get the cards to work in the Leica, you must format them in the camera. This will erase them and set them for the operating system of the camera.

I have a Leica Digilux, but could not fine it anywhere on tghe dealer spots. I need a memory card for it and its difficult to get locally. The size is larger than the regular cameras.


Amazon could be a help:

It may depend on what your exact camera model is. You have only stated Leica Digilux.
There is the Leica Digilux 1, Leica Digilux 2, Leica Digilux 3, Leica Digilux 4, and the Leica Digilux 5. Most seem to take the SD HC (the SD card may work as well) card:

If your camera is a Leica Digilux 1, then the cards it can take are: Secure Digital Card and Multi Media Card

If you have an earlier camera, then it could take some other kind such as the Compact Flash Card, although I did not find such a note anywhere.

I received a Leica Digilux 2 from a relative and i cant seem to see anything thru the viewfinder or the lcd screen. Its just black. Is the shutter not open? I can see all the numbers and settings around...


Open the back of the camera. **** the camera as if you were advancing the film. While looking in the back, push the shutter release, like you were taking a photo.
You see the mirror flip up and glimpse a flash of light as the camera cycles.
If you do not see the mirror flip up and return, the camera needs serious repair..
As for the LED Display, put some new batteries in it.

Best make and largest size of sd card for the leica digilux 2


The Digilux 2 will work with any SD card, but bear in mind that SD cards max out at 2GB. Larger cards are actually SDHC cards and will not work in the Digilux 2.

Does the menu in the camera work?
You may need to activate some Postview function in the menu. If the camera takes pictures, you should be able to view them in playback mode. There could also be a Preview mode, which requires pressing OK before storing pictures. Preview/Postview should cancel each other though...

No picture thru viewfinder or monitor


Okay, I have found the solution (along with Megant, it appears.) It is definitely a dead sensor issue. I contacted Leica via email (cs@leica-camera.com) and received a response from JoAnn Scott, a Leica customer service manager (joann.scott@leicacamerausa.com) stating that the sensor issue is a common one and is covered under an extended warranty. I shipped my Digilux 2 to this address:
Leica Camera Inc. / Customer Service Manager
Re: Dead Sensor Repair
1 Pearl Court, Unit A / Allendale, NJ 07401 / USA

and within 2 weeks received a repair ticket from Leica, identifying the issue and indicating a zero balance for the repair. A follow up with JoAnn revealed that the turnaround time on the repair would be 4 to 6 weeks. The most expensive part of this whole deal was the 18 dollars I spent insuring the camera when I sent it back via the USPS.

Hope this helps.
