Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 Digital Camera ?

I have a memory card in my Lumix DMC-LX5. I was unable to erase anything with it in the camera and had to do it from my card reader on my computer. When I put the card back in the camera, it said the memory card was full, but couldn't show any images. I can't figure out what's wrong!


Answers :

You used the computer's operating system to delete the pictures. Now, your camera doesn't recognize what happened since it uses a completely different operating system. To get the card working again, you must format it in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics you want to save first.

Camera does not have a memory card. No pictures exist, but I get MEMORY FULL message as soon as camera is turned on. When I go to the menu and go to MEMORY, the option ALL ERASE shows but I cannot get to it -- pressing the 'go to the right' function on the main menu button does nothing. Connecting the camera to the computer, I see that there are no contents in the folder(s). Have had the camera for 3-4 years, never had a memory card, would hold 4-6 photos in memory of camera before this. Ba
