    I have a similar problem. The slider switch is stuck on 'view pictures'. Something to do with my two year old dropping the camera on a stone floor. Oops.

Fix memory error message on camera


Hi there! Make sure the SD card is not locked. There is a tiny slider on the side. If is in the "down" position, the card cannot have new files saved to it. Move the slide to the "up" position, then reinsert the card.

If the slider is very loose, it's possible that inserting it into the camera slides it down, essentially making it useless. I have one like that. You could try a touch of superglue to make the slider harder to move, but I have never tried this and you would need to be very careful not to use too much, and to make sure it's entirely dry before putting it in your camera. Perhaps try a different memory card?

I have a nikon coolpix. It is continuously showing 'MEMORY CARD IS WRITE PROTECTED'. I cannot take any photos. Please help.


Look at your memory card. SD and 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.

Hi. I don't know this camera but if it uses a memory card it could just be that the card is 'locked'. Have a look at the card and move the little slider to unlock it.

You probably need to move the little slider lock on the memory card to 'unprotect' it

Card locked can't take a photo


This is usually caused by the SD card, and is rarely to do with the camera. On the SD card there is a small slider - which allows you to lock the card (to prevent accidental erasure).

If you put in on the table with contacts upwards, corner cut top left, then the slider is on the right hand edge, about 1/3 the way down. If it is slid to the top position (nearest the contacts) the card is unlocked. If it is slid down (away from the contacts) the card is locked.

If it is a damaged / "cheap" card, sometimes the slider falls out, in which case the card is locked. You can still read from it, but not write to it until fixed or replaced.

First check is to turn the camera off, remove the card, move the slider to locked, then back to unlocked. Replace in the camera and turn on.

Have you tried the camera with another SD card, to see if the problem persists? (A reputable photo store will often lend you a card for the 20 seconds it takes to do this test)

Camera is locked


On the side of the card is a small yellow or white slider switch, move it back to the other position then try the card again.
