I have a Panasonic HD-X900 camcorder which has been working

Resolved Question:

I have a Panasonic HD-X900 camcorder which has been working perfectly, but now produces the error message NO CARD even when a perfectly good card is in place.
The image shown on the LCD is perfect: but of course I cannot take video or stills.
Also the little red light for 'power on' is not working any more.
Is there anywhere in UK this might be serviceable?

I don't seem to have received any answer yet about the problem with my Panasonic X900 camcorder. Having paid £20, I am hoping you might be able to give me some advice about how I might go ahead to get it inspected and (hopefully) serviced.

Hopefully I can assist you. First, can you give me your postal code please. Can you tell me what type of SD card you are using and is this one you have used before?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My postal code is OX2 7NN (Oxford).
The card in the camera was a PNY High Performance 16 GB. This make of card (I have several) was working perfectly when the fault suddenly occurred. I have just tried other cards of the same type in the camera, and that makes no difference. As I have been an electronic engineer, I'm just wondering if it is a circuit fault, particularly because the red 'power on' led doesn't light up at all now.

Well since you have tried different SD cards, I am now coming to the same conclusion as you. If your camera hasn't sustained any damage, then there is most likely a component failure.
