Problem with Lumix DMC XS1 SDHC card

by mgpk / September 20, 2014 2:22 AM PDT

Bought a new DMC XS1. Works fine without micro SDHC but when card is put something unusual happens. It goes in a state of trance. Menu operate and shifts automatically. Sometimes the timer menu opens and it keeps selecting options without pressing any buttons. The camera hangs. When card is removed, it becomes normal. Without card can take only 15 photos. Sad What might be the problem in it ???

I've seen this on other cameras.

I put the card in my PC, copy out what I don't want to lose then format the card. I then put the card into the camera and format the card in the camera.

after turning on the camera, i can't do or select anything. It keeps on changing menus itself as if there's some programming error.

The one time this happened it would not format in the PC either and the card was toast.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
