I have appeared to have lost the original USB charging cable for my TZ40. At my best guess, I went to 2 computer shops today to try a 8 pin mini USB. It fitted, but neither charged it...
I just grabbed my dad's FujiFilm cable, which (luckily) has the same charging port, and works. But it does not appear to have 8 pins, To describe it, it has 1 pin then a gap followed by 4 pins. What is this cable called? 5 pin mini USB? Though searching through Google Images, it's not that?
UC-E6 connector ?
Here's the working cable:
