Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera ?

Built -in memory full

\015 I have a Lumix DMC-TZ1. I have had it about 17 months and was very pleased with it, but now all I can get on the screen is "Built-in memory full". It does not recognise the SD card, and I am unable to use it! Any suggestions as to how I can get it up and running again?\015

Answers :

First, determine if any of the pics on the internal memory are important...if so, download them first. Then, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, if the memory card contains any important pics, download them using a card reader if necessary. Then, insert the card into the camera and do the "format" thing again. Now, you should be ok.
