Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera ?

DMC-FZ20 says 'no memory card' - but there is!

\015 I've tried multiple memory cards - the camea used to work beautifully, then it just stopped reading the SD cards. Is there a way to clean the contacts in the camera? Everything else in the camera works. Sending it out is too costly.\015

Answers :

I don't think I can offer you a solution, but I have a few things to look at.
\015\012Firstly, dont put anything in the card slot to "clean the contacts". You my bend them - this brings us to the next step, can you get a torch and look into that tiny slot and see that all the contacts are in their neat little row, or is one bent up out of the way (very unlikely).
\015\012Of any of the cards you've taken out of the camera, especially the old one, are any dirty, tarnished/corroded, or have one very badly coloured contact compared to the others?
\015\012I Don't know how old this camera is, but I think it's about 18-24months old. Although there was hint back then on the newer SD cards coming out, there is no mention of the different SD type in the cameras specs so I'm going to suggest to you that maybe this camera is compatible to just the older (original) SD M-type cards, which are usually under 1GB (although do go to 2GB). Note the type of other cards you are trying in the camera and see if they are larger capacity new H-type cards. Try a small, 512mb or less, old card in it (if you don't have one go to a retail store and ask them if you can try one, they're likely to have testers behind the counter).
\015\012Also try and just insert and remove repeatedly your card in the camera - in, out, in, out, to wear the contacts ""dont do this while the camera is on""
\015\012Please let me know how it goes.
