Customer Question

I cannot get the pictures from the camera to my computer
JA: What's the exact make and model of the camera? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: It is a DMC-FT5. I can't get the USB cable to fit into the camera
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I just tried to connect the camera to the computer just now. Previously (a couple of months ago) it worked fine.
JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: The cable doesn't want to connect completely to the camera. It starts in, but won't fully engage
