Customer Question

I have a Panasonic FZ35 Camera. It's working great. However, I have a problem. I recently took a long trip to Alaska and decided to Organize my photos into a reasonable slide show. I copied the photos I wanted to put in my slide show into a different sd card and renumbered them accordingly [Ala001, Ala002, etc,.etc]
But now my slide show photos won't play back in my camera; they play back great everywhere else [PC, tablet, etc.], but I wanted to use the camera-to-TV connection for a group I belong to, so I could use the HDMI cabling. When I stick the new SD card into the camera, the screen says "No valid picture to play"
I have tinkered with renaming the photos to look like their originals, but that doesn't work. Happily, I still have the original SD card [didn't mess with that]. Any ideas?

Hi there and welcome Phillip.

When you edit the photos it needs to change the format in order to alter them, this means they cannot play back on the camera.

This is the case with nearly all cameras, that once they have been altered by an external source they cannot be used by the camera, you cannot get around this sirry,

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
