If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

Joyce, if your taking the pictures in a low light situation like in the house, the lens opens up wide which gives a shalow depth of field. To get a deaper depth of field use flash or take them outside, the lense will stop down to a smaller aperture and more will be in focus.

The non-functioning of the camera can be a fault in the shutter, zoom or auto focus sections and may be due to the failure of the Main control system or the drive. A simple was is to reset and we can try by removing the battery and card for some time. Now replace only the battery and while switching power ON, tap the lens hood on the palm of your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck. You can spray a degreasing spray on the lens hood sides and also assist the lens as it tries to come out, attempt to pull it out slowly while powering ON the camera. Also in some cases you can slid a thin film/paper on the lens hood sides to wipe out any dirt.

Tips to open and check for common faults: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2Mj3Qp3xYU&feature=related
Use some air to blow between the lenses to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. Unless you are familiar with handling of small devices must you try and open. If so check the voltage on the motor drive check the auto focus and Zoom drives, it must be free with manual movement. If jammed the motor can be removed and released. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.

Nothing is wrong with your memory card.
The internal memory of the camera is full.
Try changing the storage to Memory card (using the camera menu).

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Remove the memory card and you will find a switch on the left side of the card. It must be locked, so slide or push the lock on other side to open it and then insert the card back to the Camera.

Try to 'Format' the card using the menu in the camera. If that does not work then the Format options appear if you right click on the card's icon in 'My Computer' screen in Windows. Then format the card again with the camera

Go through the menus on the camera and use the format option or, on the PC, right click on the card icon in My Computer to bring down the Format option and try that. Hope it helps

You can use your camera and its included cables to download your pics. This would be explained in the owner's manual. But, a card reader is certainly a better choice. It's faster and trouble-free....you don't need any special software...you can drag and drop the files to a folder you create on your desktop. Once you have one, it can be used with any memory card in the future. You won't be sorry you purchased one (and they're cheap too!). typrice_17.jpg

Did you take the videos in AVCHD Lite? Most computers can't read that format.

Reviews by camera review websites and owners alike, have noted the inability of the camera to zoom while in movie mode. Other cameras in the Lumix line up do have the capability, but it appears that this one does not.

I hope this helped.
