Sounds like the memory card pins are bent. Remove the card and hold the camera up to the light. Look inside the memory slot and see if you can see any bent pins or anythign that is not uniform. There are 2 rows of pins and there whould not be any missing or out of place. It can be hard to see but if there is any that look closer together or laying over thats the problem. Its common and it happens fairly easy. Its best not to remove the card, even though people sugest using a card reader or to save battery life bent pins can trash a good camera.

Did you changed your computer's os? In case you didn't, reinstall to your computer the software CD you received with the camera. Good luck!

I have encountered this problem before, but with a different camera. Usually when you have a problem with horizontal lines that change over time, the lcd is not the issue. It's usually the data that is sent to the issue that is the problem. I ended up buying a broken camera of the same type from someone and switched out a circuit board. I never had much of a problem after that.

No. These cameras store images in a JPEG format and can be used with any software package that can open a JPEG image.

No. All Lumix® Digital Cameras have a built-in feature to conserve battery power. After a certain amount of inactivity, the LCD will power down to preserve the battery. Simply hit the SHTR button, and the LCD will turn ON.

Unlike 35mm cameras that store images on film, Lumix® Digital Cameras store images on SD Memory Cards, which make sharing and storing your pictures easy and convenient. You simply insert an SD Memory Card into the camera, take pictures until the card is full, and then you can transfer the pictures onto a compatible PC. Once you saved all your pictures, you can erase the card and start all over again.

The DPOF Print Mark Function allows you to sort through the SD Memory Card and select the images you want to print by electronically marking them. You can then print the marked images on any DPOF compatible printer by hitting the AUTO PRINT button.

This functionality allows unlimited consecutive shooting up to the capacity of the SD Memory Card in the camera—ideal for capturing fast-moving objects in high resolution. The number of shots may vary depending on memory card size, picture size, and compression.

Effective megapixels are slightly less than the total number of pixels normally stated for an image sensor. They represent the actual number of pixels used to record an image.

The MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer helps correct hand movement from shaky hands, one of the main reasons why cameras produce blurry images. Lumix® Digital Cameras with MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer technology have a built-in gyrosensor that detects any hand movement and relays a signal to a tiny microcomputer inside the camera, which instantly calculates the compensation needed. A linear motor then shifts the Optical Image Stabilizer lens as necessary to guide incoming light from the image straight to the CCD. You won't even notice it working—all you'll see are the outstanding results!

That is about the only thing you can do now that you suspect there may be a software issue. Was it working fine before the latest firmware install? If not, then the issue is with the internal chip that sets up the correct parameters for shooting still shots. And if unit out out of warranty you can forget a repair - it is much too expensive and not cost effective.

Since you are using software to modify your print and you save your changes you may have overlooked making sure your file is kept as .jpg. i use Adobe and after modifying my photos it will default to a Adobe file type unless I check. so when saving changes make sure it is the same type you started with. you can select "save as" to lett you confirm file extension (.jpg, . JPEG etc)

Contact with your local repair man/shop to check selection button its no contact between button and command. It may need to replace.

It won't pop out in certain exposure modes, like manual. Try it on auto. If not, GENTLY try to pry it up - sometimes they get stuck from dirt of being hit.
