Try removing the batteries and MMC card for a few minutes and put it back in. Of course, you will have to disconnect from PC first.

If that still does not work, try on a different PC. If it works there, it could indicate a fault in your PC' USB ports.

Should you still have difficulties, it could be that your camera firmware is corrupt and you may need to get it flashed again. You'll have to take this this to a Panasonic approved service center.
You can find the nearest center HERE.

Hope that helps!

Forget the cable. Do what the pros do...use a card reader.

you must go to the panasonic online or the supplier where you did buy the camera, and ask them about your CD, and tell them is free or there are some charge. Maybe you have some friends with similar camera, and copy the disk.

God bless you

How do I get the chain back on

Remove the two nuts on the side of saw. Then remove cover and slide the bar backwards to create slack in chain. make sure the tension adjustment nut (usually square head) is in groove of bar. When chain is back on bar slide the bar forward taking up the slack. Put the cover back on, put the nuts back on and with a slotted screw driver turn the bar adjustment to take up the slack. The chain should lift off the bar slightly but not so much that it is loose.

Power problem


Try taking out your batteries and then taking out your memory card. Put back in batteries. Turn on camera.

If this works, just put back in your memory card and try again. Sometimes the memory card hangs and you need to pop it in and out.

When i turn on the camera it shows the card is locked but it isnt

It is possible you have a bad card. If you have already moved the switch on the card to check and make sure it's not locked, then your card is most likely dead.
If you purchased this on eBay, then you were probably sold a fake card. eBay can help you get your money back through the resolution center.

My camera wont let me turn the flash on. What is the problem?

You need to switch out of the macro mode. There's a slide switch on the end of the camera. Slide it from the flower to the mountain.

How do I turn it on? I can see the power switch but not on button. Product: Sharp 722 MD Portable Recorder

if it is a push button you momentarily push it. if it is a slide switch you would move it to the left or right for a moment and let it go. that should start it up. if it's not starting the batteries may be dead or low.

My camera keeps saying write protect when i turn it on. How do I solve it. My memory card is Olypus XD.

Remove the memory card and look for a near-microscopic slide switch along the edge of the board. If you don't find one, it may have a tab-type lock that has been activated.
If the card is not equipped with either one, it is probably dead.

I have a CANON powershot a510 and it doesnt even turn on...

Here's some thing to try for a camera that won't power on.

For your camera, there's a tiny white slide switch on the battery door that closes when the door is closed. Make sure that the switch isn't damaged. Also check the little plastic nib on the battery door that pushes on the switch when the door is closed.

Locked card

Pull out your memory card, and find the little gray slide switch, if it is away from card connection it is locked, slide switch (little gray slide switch) toward the card connection. This will unlock your memory card.
