Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 Digital Camera ?

On playback, I get the message this motion image cannot be played, why?


Answers :

Each video recorded on camera creates a thumbnail picture file which is linked to the movie file, but is stored in another folder. When you delete the movie file on camera via PC, this thumbnail file will be become "orphaned", left in the camera and causes this error message "this movie image cannot be played". You also cannot delete it! At this stage the only solution is to first make sure you do not have any remaining pictures left and format the sandisk. From then on, never delete the movies in camera from PC but only direct from the camera. Posted by Forest.

I have Image Expert 1.8.5 that was supplied with my Toshiba camera (that I no longer use). Recently the program offered to compress my files (or at least that's what I thought I was being offered).

Hi, I have a panasonic Lumix, DMC-FS5 digital camera. When I turn the camera on and it's on 'photograph' mode, a message keeps appearing after a couple of seconds saying: "please turn camera off and then on again".

There are (apparently) some strange "pictures" taking up enormous space on my panasonic DMC-FZ20GN. Oddly, they don't appear as images on the camera, but black screens. When I try to delete them, I get the message "some pictures cannot be deleted". I have tried a reset of the camera, but with no success. How can I get rid of them? Peter Townsend. Sydney.
