What does write protected mean?


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.

My samsung s630 digital cameral is stuck on card lock how to i fix this


It's not the camera, it's the 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.

Lens is stuck shutter is open, changed batteries , tried new batteries, inserted SD card, installed AV lead, put some lubricating oil around lens layers, Any other ideas... Please N.


Do not put any oil into the set as you can get it worse.The only possibility is the failure of controller unit of the camera.The motor drives are not working , canbe not signal from the mP.
You will need to get this checked at the Samsung service centre for estimation.

How to format or unformat memory card on IXUSi camera I need to know how to format and unformat the memory card I can't see the pcitures as it is showing no image on the screeen Regards C Robertson


to format a sd memory card, you can insert the card to computer or camera, and select the format. To unformat a sd memory card, a data recovery software can help you.
Are you in a dilemma as to whether to format your SD card or not? If you don't format the SD memory card, you cannot use your SD card any more, and you cannot transfer files from SD card to other devices. If you format the SD memory card, you will loss all the files like photos and videos on your SD card. Follow the link you can get the answer.

SD card locked for Samsung SL202


Hi,

This used to happen occassionaly with my canon camers. Just use a peice of scotch tape or if you have one a small dab of hot glue to stop it from sliding.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Lines on LCD display, file error, lens not opening all the way.


Sounds like 2 things, unformatted SD card and carbon based alkaline batteries. If using SD card, you MUST FORMAT the card upon first use and then occasionally there after. This model camera cannot use an SD card bigger than 1GB, so make sure you aren't using a 2GB or higher. Also, make sure you stay away from alkaline batteries, you will waste your money. Try using Energizer Lithium or Duracell Power Pix, you will get your moneys worth.

Memory card won't unlock


First I know you've said you've checked the card's slide switch, but just want to restate this first for others with the same problem who may not know of this switch.

Check to make sure that you didn't accidentally place the tiny locking slide switch on the side of your SD card in the "locked" downward position. The correct "unlocked" position should be slid up toward the direction of the connectors.

If you've tried this, and it's still showing locked, it's likely that the locking switch inside the camera's card slot is stuck. If you look inside the slot on the side of the slot where the SD card slide switch would be, you'll see a glint of gold color on the side. This is the camera's lock/unlock switch. The other glint's of gold that you may see at the far end of the slot are the reader's connectors (ignore those).

Somehow, the locking switch is making contact and has become stuck in the locked position. With a plastic toothpick, or other skinny NON-METALLIC item, tap against this switch to see if you can jar open the contact to its normal unlocked position. Also try blowing compressed air at it, as some gunk may have worked its way in there, jamming it closed. Occasionally, reinsert the SD card to see if the issue has been corrected.

If repeated tries fail, it may be time to consider opening the camera to force open this switch (not recommended unless you have some familiarity with electronics). In this case please see the following (xscrewdriver, hope you don't mind me referencing your blog):

Nikon D40 Memory Card Error


Hello. Make sure the write-protect switch on the SD card is in the UP (nearer to the contacts) position. Try the card in an SDHC capable reader on your computer first. Note that the SD card can only be inserted one way - make sure you're not putting it in upside-down! If the computer recognizes the presence of inserted card (whether it can read it or not), format it at FAT32. When finished, remove properly (icon in system tray) and insert into your D40 slot, WITH THE CAMERA OFF!! Turn on the D40, and if it now recognizes the SD card, FORMAT it again, in the camera. Good luck.

Samsung Digimax S700 is frozen with lens open


I had this same problem, and all i did was pop out the SD card, and tried turning it on without it in there.  It powered up just fine.  I then replaced the SD card and all was well.  Possibly a problem with teh SD card.
