my Lumix DMC-ZS3 is stuck "Now Writing Please Wait ..."
by bort269 - 3/10/10 6:28 PM
Anyone have any suggestions of what to do?
I took a photo and immediately the LCD said "Please Wait" with the little hourglass flipping over.
I waited a few seconds and it didn't go away (usually that is there for 3 seconds max).
I tried turning off the camera, changing modes, nothing!
It just sits there and says "Now Writing Please Wait..." with an hourglass and card-writing icon.
It's been 45 minutes (I called Panasonic support at 8:45pm ET but they close at 9pm and claimed that I called after-hours) and I don't know what to do!
The only thing that I know will stop it is if I take out the battery, but I don't want to lose everything on the SD card (or mess it up).
Anyone know a reset combo? I read the troubleshooting section of the manual, but there is no case for this.
I even tried plugging in the USB to my PC but it doesn't do anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!
