I recently dropped my wife's Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5.
There appears to be no damage to it whatsoever...except there seems to be an issue with its SD memory card reader that prevents it from writing to or reading from the card.
How can I determine what the underlying problem is in order to see if I can fix it?
- It doesn't "take" pictures -- as if the shutter release button isn't working.
- When I switch to play mode (green arrow) to view pictures/movies, it thinks for 5-10 seconds and then displays: "MEMORY CARD ERROR \ PLEASE CHECK THE CARD". The same thing happens when I use other memory cards that should be working.
- I am able to access a half-dozen photos she took and stored in the camera's built-in memory if the memory card slot is empty.
