You only know after you take the picture.

I recently bought the camera and was able to take 45 pictures without a memory card. I then put a memory card in from my phone and it allowed me to take pictures. However, once I took the card out and put it back into the camera, it now comes up card locked and can only take 3 pictures without it, even though I've deleted everything off it!
Be sure that the Lock switch on the memory card in your camera is set to unlock. If it is unlocked then try and see if you can reformat the card with the camera. ... Samsung Digital Cameras
Panasonic DMC-LS2 camera. Whenever I turn the camera on to take a picture it says turn it off and then on again. I have changed batteries, etc. I can look at the pictures stored in the camera, change settings, etc. but when it comes to taking a picture no go.

HI, the camera was hanging on back of a chair with the strap and slip off to the Tile floor. The camera takes pictures but, lines come across the screen as soon as the picture is taken. My wife has down loaded the camera and relayed that all the pictures taken after the drop either have the lines or just didn't take at all. The drop to the floor was probably 18" to 24"
