Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera
When I tried to take a picture yesterday, I was unable to do so. The words
Card Locked! appear on the screen and I don't know how to unlock the
card. I am traveling and I do not have my owners manual. thanks , Rob
THERE ARE A COUPLE OF THINGS YOU MAY TRY TO SOLVE THIS. ONE IS TO DELETE SOME OF THE PICTURES ON THE CARD. THE OTHER IS THAT THERE IS A PHYSICAL SMALL SWITCH ON TH CARD ITSELF THAT MAY HAVE GOTTEN MOVED TO THE LOCK POSITION. LOOK FOR IT AND CHECK TO SEE THAT IT IS UNLOCKED ALL THE WAY. IT IS JUST BELOW THE TOP OF THE CARD AND IT IS A VERY SMALL SLIDE TYPE SWITCH. THIS MAY HAVE MOVED IN HANDLING ETC. THE CARD MAY BE FULL ALSO IF YOU DON'T DELETE PHOTO'S WHEN YOU DOWNLOAD THEM TO YOUR COMPUTER. IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO CHECK THE BOX TO WIPE THE CARD CLEAN AFTER DOWNLOAD. THAT WAY THE CARD IS ALWAYS CLEAR AND READY TO GO. IT ALSO DOESN'T HURT TO FORMAT THE CARD ONCE IN AWHILE. YOU CAN DO THIS WITH A CARD READER, YOUR CAMERA OR YOUR COMPUTER IF IT HAS CARD SLOTS. HOPE THIS HELPS. IF YOU NEED YOUR MANUAL, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO VIEW IT ONLINE AT THE CAMERA WEBSITE. MOST MAKERS HAVE MANUALS AVAILABLE ONLINE. SAME FOR THE SD CARD. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO ACCESS INFO ON IT FROM THEIR WEBSITE ALSO. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217, I'LL MONITOR FOR REPLIES.
