Card Locked.. I went to playback and scrolled down to protect. I tried changing it to off but it isn't allowing me to change the setting. Is there something else I need to do to be able to access that?

Take out your memory card and on it will be a little tab, push it in the other direction, you might have bumped it to protect so you can't do anything. Good luck!

How to unlock a photo in camara

The protect function allows a user to protect a picture from accidental deletion. To unprotect a picture on your camera, scroll to the protected picture that you want to delete, then press the Menu button (the button to the right of the Play button.) Scroll down the menu and you should come to an option that allows you to Protect/Unprotect the picture. Since your picture is currently protected, deselect that option. You should then be able to delete the picture normally.

Alternatively, you could also format the memory card, however this deletes ALL photos and data you have on the memory card. If you are trying to completely clear the memory, this is the best way. After turning on your camera, simply press the Menu button, scroll to Setup, then scroll down to Format. Select Format, it will ask you if you want to format the memory card, or the camera's built-in memory. Format whichever one you want to clear, if you are using a memory card then your pictures are stored on the memory card. It will take a few seconds to format.

Hope this helps.

My volumn on my ipod 4th gen is not working and when i go to settings it only shows languages no volumn setting

One of the major warnings Apple includes with all of its iPods is the permanent hearing damage that could occur if you have the volume on your iPod turned up too high.

To help combat the problem, the iPod comes with a feature that allows you to set a maximum volume level that your iPod can be played at that level is controlled by a combination that can keep others namely children from turning the volume up to dangerous levels.

The good news is, if that combination falls into the wrong hands, it can be reset.

Use your iPod's click wheel to scroll down to "Settings."

Press the center button located in the middle of the click wheel to select the settings menu.

Scroll down to "Playback" and press the center button to select it.

Scroll to "Volume Limit" and press the center button to select it.

Use the click wheel to scroll to the first number of the old combination and press the center button to select it.

Repeat this process for all four numbers of the old combination.

Use the click wheel to scroll to where you want the maximum volume to be set and press the center button.

Use the click wheel to scroll to "Lock" and press the center button.

Use the click wheel to enter the first number of the new combination when the message "Enter New Combination" appears on the screen repeat the process for the three remaining numbers.

Once the four numbers have been entered, your iPod's maximum volume will be set and your password will be changed.

hope this helps

File error and does not upload

Sounds like your card is locked. There's a tiny slider on one side of the card with 2 small symbols (an open and a closed pad lock). Move the slider to the open pad lock. If the slider is set to open, then you might have locked the images in camera. If that's the case go to the review menu of your camera and scroll through the options to option 'protect' and change the setting there to 'unprotect all'
One of these 2 should solve your problem. Hope that helps

How to unlock a picture

Go to the playback menu and select it (you may have to adjust the circular option know to get to the playback menu). Once there, scroll to the picture(s) that are locked by using the sideways selection arrow buttons. Then select the up or down arrows, which will lock or unlock your picture. You can also erase any locked pictures, in case you want to, by formatting the xD card. Hope this helps.

Card locked

There's a little yellow switch on the left side of your memory card labled "lock" with an arrow pointing down. Push it up. Note: If it doesn't work right away, try uploading all your photos to your computer and then dumping them off of the card.  Push the switch up again and it should start taking pictures again.

Protected feature

There are 2 probable solutions. 1. The images are "protected" by the camera & will show "locked" when you try to erase them. 2. The SD card in the camera is locked. The solution to 1 is to unlock the images in the playback menu. See page 46 of the manual. Note that you need to select "unlock" you can't select protect as they are already protected! Solution 2 is to remove the card from the camera & check the "lock" slider that you can see on the side (although no all cards have this). Set the lock off. You can download the manual from the first link on the following page: Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
