Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

MY CAMARA KEEP SAYING READ CARD AN THEN POWER DOWN. it is new 8gb an new batteries please give advice JAZZ DV150


Answers :

I'm going to first question this cameras capabilities to work with an 8GB memory card it just might not have the capacity.

But before jumping on my first impression make sure the memory card is unlocked I'm going to include a diagram the small circle shows the correct position of this lock swich to record.

Once you are sure the card is unlocked I'd suggest that you format this card and if it begins to work as it should then all is Okay if not you might need to update the camera firmware to accept a larger memory card.

With our panasonic DMC-LZ5, first we got a message saying replace batteries, which we did (with new ones). Now, the screen is all white with a message saying please turn camera off and then on again. We've tried several sets of batteries, and turned it off and on again. The picture of the battery is all in white, with a line through the middle. Any ideas on how to reset?
