I mentioned this on a different post, but make sure you use the correct cable for the camera. Here is the story -

I remember a friend who had a Samsung compact with internal charging. She mislaid the propriety Samsung charging/data cable, but found another cable for another device, forced it into the HDMI socket to charge the camera. She smelt burning, and removed the cable. The camera was wrecked. Lucky she had paid for accidental damage, so the camera was repaired. She also found the correct cable.

I suspect even the "correct" cable would have fried the camera if jammed into the HDMI port. Charging is done through the USB port.

Not everyone bothers to pay attention and observe even basic technical things!

This should not be a problem with Lumix compacts, I hope!

If you think digital is hard, try slide film.
