Failure Of SD Card Slot Of Camcoder PANASONIC HC-X920M

I could not insert any SD MEMORY CARD into the Card Slot of Panasonic HC-X920M Camcoder and the "Access Light" also is not blinking. It seems that something is blocking from the Card being inserted.

Request assistance from any specialist.

Thank you.

Was this camcorder previously working OK for you?   Or is this your first time using the camcorder?
You should take a look with a flashlight into the slot, and see if things look normal, and that there is no foreign matter inside the slot.

Please check in the readers manual to how to insert the SD card properly. You can mention about which card brand you are using and was the card working correctly before?

On some recent occasion, might you possibly have inserted the SD card backwards?  This could have fouled the prongs or connection points at the inward end of the slot.  Some slots may survive occasional errors of this sort, but perhaps not if forced in all the way.

Could some dirt, sand, or gunk have gotten into the slot?  Water or residue of some beverage?

Are you inserting an SD card (2GB or less), which would not work for AVCHD video, or a Class 4 or higher SDHC card?

Does your computer recognize the card and are you able to navigate the folders and files in Windows Explorer?  If not, then the problem is with the card itself.  Otherwise, the above-mentioned theories might apply.
