I want to delete protected pictures


If the picture on the camera is protected, unprotect the picture first. In playback mode, scroll to the protected picture, then press the AE-L/AF-L button on the back of the camera.

If the memory card is protected, take the card out of the camera. 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.

Hi,

You have accidentally selected lock option.You need to select unlock option for the same. Press the menu button and then press right/left button to select the protect menu. Then you need to select unlock and that would turn off file protect.

Kindly accept the solution so that i could get the credit for my time.

Thanks and Regards

My picture card is saying no picture when i go to take a picture the card says full it wont let me take a picture??


Hi.

Check AE lock custom button:

Ensure that the memory card has no protective seal or object in front of the protection area. See here.

Ensure that the files are not individually protected (Key sign in settings)

If that does not fix the problem, then the card may be defective. In that case replace the card.

Here a manual.

HOW DO I UNLOCK PROTECTED PICTURES IN MY CAMERA


Press MENU to enter the menu. Select the SETUP menu (the wrench icon). Select Protect (the key icon). Protected pictures are indicated by a little key icon in the upper-left corner of the picture. Navigate to the protected ones and press up/down to unprotect.

Or is the entire card protected? SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

How do I delete pics in a protected file on my sony camera


Hello,
There are two ways to delete the protected files.

1. Formatting the internal memory or "Memory Stick Duo" erases all data stored on the recording media, even if the images are protected, and these images can not be restored.

2. Just select the protected sign (key) to turn it to gray from green. Then press OK button shown in the below figure. The center button is OK. If you press again, it turns to green to protect your file. Press again to unprotect it.

That is all.

The camera file is locked


not sure what you are asking? but most cameras have a little key picture on settings or pback of camera, if you want to protect photos from accidental erasure you push that button and it locks the file, when you view photo on camera it will show a little key in upper right corner of the picture. just a shot

Check make sure you did not lock the pictures.

You can lock through playback menu settings or from quick key (little lock key on camera).

Also some mem cards have a little slide lock to protect images from being erased.

Hope this helped. Good Luck! enjoy your trip. Need more help comment back.

Picture lock


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.

What does write protect mean?


"Write Protect" means that something is locked and your device (camera) cannot "write" to it's storage area.
What type of "storage media" are you using?
For example:  the camera's internal memory, a CompactFlash card, a Memory Stick, an "xD-Picture Card" (micro, mini or regular sized), or a Secure Digital/MultiMediaCard.
[Did you put something  (a small plastic card of some sort) into a slot on the camera before or after turning it on?
Those little cards usually have a tiny button (also called a switch or lever) on them that will move back and forth to lock (write protect) or unlock it. This sounds like the memory card inside your camera is locked or "Write Protected.

To fix this simply take it out, closely examine the memory for the button- the button will be closer to the word "lock" or "protect" and all you need to do is gently slide it in the opposite direction from where it currently is. Put it back into the camera and see if it still says "Write Protect."

Let me know...
