When i try to upload my pictures it keeps saying USB Mode connecting........ then it says below that: Switch on [ MENU ] .... i don't know what to do ????

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 camera has a blurred display within 25 seconds of being turned on when in any mode other than playback. When the display blurs, it quite quickly becomes unviewable, and if I try to take a photo, an error message saying WRITE ERROR PLEASE CHECK THE CARD shows on the screen. The card seems fine and pictures I took before today all look good, both on the display and in a computer. Is there any fix, or do I need a new camera?


This is a problem with the camera lens and yes this can still be fix but you need to have it check on a service center but that price will not be cheap so if I may suggest it will be better to get a new camera..... ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 Digital Camera
