Unlocked tapes recognized as locked

This is probably due to a stuck microswitch in the tape drive unit as the locked tag presses a microswitch when loaded it is possibly these microswitches that are failing, as one of the switches detects if a tape is loaded and the other detects is a tape is locked, so problems with these switches would mean that it cannot detect if the tape is loaded properly.

Take the memory card out of the camera. Move the lock switch on the side of the card to the unlocked position if it is in the locked position. Replace the card carefully without moving that switch.The unlocked position on most SD cards puts the switch towards the end of the card that goes into the camera first.

If that doesn't help, try a different card. The card you are using may have a problem that could require formatting. Copy your photos to another drive first. (Use a drive/photo recovery program on your computer (with the card in an SD card reader). There are some that will attempt to read even a corrupted SD card.) Then reformat the card. If the card can't be reformatted, it may have failed. Check your warranty on the card and see if it will be replaced by the manufacturer.

I hope this helps.

I cannot use scanner Lide 25.. because show error : "release the lock switch,detach the I/F cable and reconnect" How solution?


Sounds like the scan head is locked. This is usually done so you can transport the scanner without bouncing the scan head out of alignment. Look under the scanner and you will see it. Make sure it's in the UNLOCKED position. You may need to power the unit off/on to reset it or restart your computer to get a fresh attempt at the scanner.

I would contact a dealer locally and see if they can check the system for fault codes . many times when we have key fobs in our pockets they get activated just walking from the buttons getting depressed by other things in the same pocket .

Doorlocks keep locking even when out of the


Dave, it would appear that at one point one of the manual locks were forced either to unlock or lock and has now repositioned the nuetral point at a different location on the locking rod, hence, sending false readings to the control unit to either unlock or lock, I would try this, close all doors and manually lock them see which lock lever look unlike the rest in that position, this will be the culprit and have to be reset on the rod behind the door trim panel. This advice is as best as I can give without manually seeing the car. Drive safely

My Visioneer 8650 flatbed scanner with auto document feed gives a message when I try to scan a document, telling me to move the switch on the bottom from the "locked" to "unlocked" position. The lock is...


Actually a very common problem. Try the following:
1. Power down then re-power up the scanner.
2. Try slightly moving scanner. Sometimes a small change works to fix.
3. Change one of your scan setting to flatbed scan (not adf). Do a test scan under this setting. This will usually kick start scanner unit to unlock.
4. Last resort, by does also work...give it a medium slap on the side, sometimes unjams the scanner light.
5. Super last resort, power down over night, it almost always works the next day. (could be that lock up is heat related to scan lamp, dont know but just a guess).
Excellent scanner, so worth the effort to try these fixes.

94 Chevy Camaro-won't start


I would say you would have to take off the inside door panel and remove the mechanism and security switch to see why it is jammed in a locked position, even though you have unlocked the door the electric switch {maybe rusted} is still signalling a lock position, the switch may be located on the actual key barrel, but same check to see why its not moving into an unlock position.
hope this helps.

Sd memory card is locked and wont unlock


Hey rpl2125,
It sounds like you covered your bases, but you could try putting a piece of tape over the write protection switch and see if this works. If the tape doesn't work then there is most likely a defect in the memory card and you are going to need to replace it, and I would contact the manufacturer to see if it is under any warranty, and if it is they will often just send you out a new one.

Sincerely,
Allan
