Hi,

I have a FZ7, I don't know if the following will work on your camera:

Turn on the camera in "P" mode, then open the "Setup" menu and select "Auto review". By changing the time settings for Auto review, the camera can show a picture immediately after taking it.

Hope this helps.

Check the SD card, they have sliders on them which lets you "lock" the card so nothing can be put on or taken off of it. Make sure that is off. Then go through the menu on the camera and try to format the card again. If the card is bad it should give you an error message when it tries otherwise you should be good :)
