Default Fz40 help!

My sd card got jammed in it and I had to pry it out, when i removed it i notice that the little lock tab on the side of it had ripped off of it when prying it out (apparantly the card was messed up BEFORE i put it in and it got caught on something in the reader) So now my camera will not recognize any sd card at all. I need a new reader, does anyone know where I can get the part for that? I called a local repair shop and they told me that only panasonic can fix it , i looked up panasonic and therent arent any service center within 3000 miles.

No idea where you live. Going by your description of the damage, looks like only Pana can fix it (mostly they will have to replace the card slot). Check if these links can help:

Glad the damage was not as serious as described by you, and congrats to your husband for saving a lot of time and trouble for you!
