My camera is blocked: it says WRIITE PROTECT


Remove the memory card and you will find a switch on the left side of the card. It must be locked, so slide or push the lock on other side to open it and then insert the card back to the Camera.

Sterring lock left key in.turned whell broke off part of do i remove lock

Right out of the book but earlier model. It should be the same.

Removal of the fork lock:

1. Loosen upper triple clamp pinch bolts, Remove upper triple clamp and handlebars.

2. Loosen fork stem bolt, Let fork stem drop down approx. 5 in.

On the left side of the steering stem there is a "half-moon" indentation that has been machined into the steering stem for the lock. Let the steering stem drop until this indentation is in full view.

3. Look on the underside of the lock on the right side of the frame and there is a lead plug driven into a hole. In this hole is a set screw that holds the lock into the frame. The book says to use a scribe to get the plug out with.

4. Unscrew the set screw.

5. Insert the key in the lock and turn partially.

6. Wiggle lock and pull until enough of the lock comes out to get a grip with pliers or other suitable tool.

7. Rotate steering stem slightly, while pulling on the lock until the lock is removed.

Camera: HP Photosmart R725. Can't format SD card; says its locked when its not.

dear sir,

even after removing the lock(by pushing the push button at the upper side of the card which allows the card to lock and unlock)and when you are trying to format it,it shows formatting cannot be done right??????????////

all right,just take the card and put in a card reader and try formatting,hope this helps...even after trying in crd reader if ur card cannot be formatted,then the card is being corrupted..........its advisable to go for sandick or transcend memory cards which have a longer life and some important pictures or joyfull moments being picturised if missing,it hurtsa lot,because i also faced this problem........

thank you...take care

If the key is non functional and you cannot turn to run then you will need the tool in this picture197ca25.gif

Memory card problem

Hi and welcome to FixYa.

I'm not sure about your particular instance, but this can happen if you change up cameras or use a card reader.

As for being unable read the memory card, sometimes the card can be switched off by accident. Turn off the camera and remove the card. Look at the side of the card and there will be a little switch. One end says locked (or shows a little picture of a locked lock) and the other end says unlocked (or, shows a little picture of an unlocked lock). Just move the switch to unlocked.
Try that, and let me know with a comment if that doesn't work, othewise, thanks for coming to FixYa!

Asus a6 laptop keyboard problem

your number lock is on. Since there is not enough room on a laptop for the right hand number pad you find on many desktop keyboards, they incorporate it into the text keyboard. Generally there is a key in the upper right side to toggle the number lock, also if you enter the bios mode and check that number lock is not enabled on boot.
