Protected pictures cannot be erased using [ERASE],
[SEL. IMAGE] or [ALL ERASE], but they are all erased by
formatting.
• Go to Playback mode in the camera. Select the picture to be unlocked with the left or right arrow buttons, and to remove the protection select OFF with the up or down arrow button.

I have a picture that has a green key in the upper right hand corner. I cannot delete that picture.


It's protected. Unprotection is the same as protection. While in play mode, go into the menu and look for the "protect" item. Use it on that image to remove the protection and you will be able to delete it.

Comment back if you have trouble finding the menu item.

I hve the write protect problem on my fe 320 olympus. its not allowing me 2 tak pic neither allowing me 2 copy them..


It's most likely that your card is locked. Take out the card and on one side you should find a small slider with 2 symbols (an open and a closed pad lock). Move the slider to the open pad lock position and that should solve your problem. It's a feature on some (mainly SD) cards which lets you lock the card to avoid unintentional deletion of data. Hope that helps

The key means that the picture is locked so you can not erase by accident. You need to remove the key be for you can erase the pic. If you have the manual it will tell you how. if not get me the model of camera and I will get you a manual.

One of my pictures wont delete, and the screen says protected how do I change that so I can delete it?


If your pic is in the locked mode (Green Key Icon). Bring up picture. Press menu. Press (Playback Menu) and hit OK. Press OK again and it should bring up the pic with option of off or on. Hit off to unlock and you should be able to delete the pic.

Unwanted pictures


At the top of the camera is a camera symbol and an arrow button. Push the camera button to call up pics and use the left/ right ring where the OK button is to scroll thru. When you get to a picture you do not like push the red garbage can button on the lower right rear of the camera. It will ask you to confirm, then it will delete.

Hope this helps.

Cant remove picture on digital camera


As per the last persons solution the key icon does indicate you have locked the photo. First select the photo you want to delete, press menu, select playback menu, the key icon appears, press the weird shaped arrow button to the right of the OK; phot unlocks and allows to delete!!
