You can download a user manual here. Your problem, however, does not seem to be related to the camera, but to the SD card. Take the card out and look along the edge for a small 'switch'. This switch will have a 'locked' and an 'unlocked' position. Make sure it is 'unlocked'. If you still get the advisory, try another SD card. (Sometimes those little 'switches' fail.)

Canon fs300 says card has been set for erasure prevention; won't let me record


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
If that doesn't do it, try another card.

What if the the screen says this tape is set for erasure prevention when im trying to clean the headset? its happening to my Canon GL2 and i tried using the heaset cleaner and nothings happening.


This is most likely a bad eraasure prevention switch in the cameras tape mechanism and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Canon FS200, cant record or take pictures, says card is set for erasure prevention, switched position of lock switch on card but it still wont work.


The most likely cause is a malfunction of the card lock switch in the cameras card reader.This can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

The card is set for erasure prevention how do i change that


Hi,
It depends upon the type of card which you are using and the type of device in which you are using the card.

Remove the card from the device and check for any small switch/knob which causes the card in read-only mode.
If nothing is present, then try connecting your card to a computer using a card reader and try to format the card.

i hope this is helpful to you.
Thanks

When i put a tape in it ejects it..then a tape with a slash appears on the screen


you are prohibited from recording on thips tape. This is because the red tab on the side of the tape that faces you when you are inserting the tape inside the camera has been put in 'SAVE' position . to be able to record o the tape you need to use your fingernail to slide the red tab to the 'REC' position.

Ive extracted the following article for you from wilkepedia to help you understand this issue:
Tape and recording protection
250px-8mm_cassette_erase_tab.jpg magnify-clip.pngThe write-protect switch (right) prevents accidental erasure. .
To prevent the recording on the tape from being erased, there is a small write-protect tab that can be moved to one of two positions, labeled "REC" and "SAVE". Comparing the sliding tab to a door, the tape is in the "REC" position is when the "door" is open and the "SAVE" position when it is closed. (Not all tape cases have markings for this information!) The tape can only be recorded on (or recorded over) when this tab is in the "REC" position. This is an improved version of the VHS write-protect tab, which prevents erasure after it has been (permanently) broken off.

Camera turns off


the red symbol is the erasure prevention slider on the tape. check it's not on or push the slider on and off prevention. this should fix the red symbol, you might have to do it a couple of times before it works. not sure what F14 is can't find it in the manual. try the solution here. if it still turns off after a few seconds i have another way to fix the power.

Erasure prevention


Sounds like a CCD sensor problem ( no image in capture mode but ok in playback ). Replace CCD block and will work fine.
