Since you didn't specify the make and model of your camera I'm assuming it uses SD/SDHC cards.

SD/SDHC 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.

SOURCE: Protected card message

on the side of some picture cards there is a little tab that slides back and forth. If your card hs this try sliding it the other way. These are a write protection so to speak, or a lock in a sense

SOURCE: camera shows memory card is write protected. how

The SD or SDHC memory card has a slide switch to lock / unlock the card. Move it to the unlock side.
If the card is an MMC (Multimedia Card), it is not supported.

SOURCE: "card protected"

SD 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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

CHA is blinking on the control panel, and on the viewfinder it says Card is locked. Can't get rid of these things, and obviously can't take pix. We just charged the battery before Easter and haven't been...


First, remove the memory card and look at it. SD 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. Then put the card back into the camera and format it by pressing and holding the two format buttons (trash can and exposure compensation buttons) until the LCD blinks. Release and then press the two buttons again to format the card.

If this doesn't do it, please reply to this post and we'll go on from there.

The camera takes a while to snap after pressing the snap botton. or it does not snap at all.


Do you have any blinking or flashing symbols in the viewfinder?
A blinking lightning bolt could be telling you of IMPROPER FE LOCK
A blinking DOT may indicate that you are shooting in One-Shot AF mode and focus was not obtained. Try to refocus, press the shutter button half way and allow the image to come into focus.

Also, check you memory card, if it is not inserted properly or has a slight twist, the camera will not shoot. Make sure your card is not full, and check if it has a write protect tab and check that the tab is not loose and sliding enough to make the camera think the card is protected. Lastly - try getting a new memory card, often there are aftermarket cards that have first quality labels that will prevent the camera from functioning correctly.

How do I get rid of memory card protection?


Hi,

There is a lock switch on the memory card that you can set to protect the card. Have a look at the card and check if you can see the switch. Just push it in the other direction than it is at present and all should work fine.

Please rate.
Cheers

Need to permanently delete thumbnails from camera card.


Sounds like you may want to permanently format the memory card while in the camera. This will remove all data that has been written to the card. Have your camera in shooting mode, go to menu and then down to Card tab or setup option and then go to Card Setup or Format option. Highlight Yes and press Ok. This will permanently delete all data from the memory card and you will not see the older images and will only see the newest ones from now on.
