There is a software program called Card Recovery Pro that you can google to find the download. This will get the photo's off the memory card directly. If your PC or laptop does not have a built in card reader then you'll need to get one in order to use the software.

You may be able to connect the camera to a computer and access the picture files that way. Also make sure the SD card isn't close to full.

I can't find this message in the manual. Power failures are the most common errors with portable gear. You have to rely on the quality of the batteries. Each and every battery can become faulty, with no obvious reason you can think off. Using lots of rechargeable batteries myself, I think I know where I'm talking off.Please to be sure, take another set of batteries, charge them and put them in the camera. Try to avoid alkaline batteries, because they only are capable of doing half the job of an rechargeable NiMH, pro charge. Also never use NiCD rechargeable batteries, because they won't have the correct voltage. (perhaps one or two shots, but the voltage drops very quick to 1,2 volt, its working voltage).
You also can check the camera and the batteries, if they don't have dirty or oxidised contacts. Only clean contacts with a dry cloth. Or when really dirty, with just a little contact oil on a cloth to wipe the contacts. Be sure you dry the contacts after the cleaning. Never use sharp tools to clean electronic contacts.

Check the operation system permissions given to the current user.
Check the file properties (security tab) you want to delete if the delete permission is given. If not, edit the permissions.

Check the SD card "lock" on its side. Move it to unlocked position.

Till now, there is no such software which can edit mts file. What people usually do is to convert mts to other regular format first, then use Windows Movie Maker, Sony vegas or other edit tools to do some editing.
I always use Pavtube Video Converter(http://www.pavtube.com/video_converter/) to help me convert mts files to other formats supported by my edit tool. For example, i tried to convert mts to wmv to import my Windows Movie Maker for editing.

Panasonic doesn't like anyone to use a 3rd party battery....only genuine Panasonic batteries. Check yours...if it's a real Panasonic battery, then you need to e-mail one of their tech people for a work-around.

Here's a fix I got from Panasonic, I figured I would post this since I haven't seen this anywhere on the web and this post was the highest hit on google

Based on the information that you have provided, we suggest that you perform the following operation:
1. Turn off the camera 2. While off, turn the zoom button fully to the left or right (hold for about 3-5 secs) 3. Release then turn the camera back on... At this point in time the lens should retract. If it does not, repeat the previous steps however, press the zoom to the opposite direction than you did the first time around. If this does not resolve the issue, we recommend the product be sent to our Customer Service Center.

This seems to work for me. The lens retracted back in place and my camera resumed working.

Hi there:
The only time I have seen horizontal lines in the pictures, it was a prelude to the CCD sensor failing. Sounds like a CCD sensor problem.If the CCD sensor is causing the problem, it will get worse soon. Usually the next thing to happen is that the colors will shift toward pink.

I suggest you phone Panasonic support and tell them the problem and that you suspect the CCD.Ask for a repair quote for a CCD replacement.If the product is under warranty.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details:Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.
