The first thing you do is just open your camera and get your card, after that there is small rectangle at the side please slide it, to unlock

My card is locked i have been researching for almost an hour how to unlock this camera but they gave me confusing stuff so i have know idea what to do and im going to a trip tomorrow

Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. 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 that doesn't do it, try another card.

The camera will not power up although we have checked and replaced the batteries.

Have you checked that the battery charger is working and that the battery contacts in the camera are bright and clean?

Other than that, there's really nothing else you can do. The E337 was released two years ago as an ultra-budget offering, and really intended as a cheap "giveaway" camera to be included as a bundled item with HP laptops and desktop pcs. Some were sold as standalone cameras mainly via catalogues but total sales were very low: the camera was a 2007 model with technical specifications typical of cameras sold in 2004 but with lower build quality so it was never very popular and is almost worthless on the secondhand market.

Any warranty is likely to now be expired and the camera was never built to last nor to be repaired; even professional attention to diagnose the fault is going to cost more than the camera is worth. During the warranty period the official policy was to simply trash any returns and send a replacement unit.

Your camera was fine for what it was and you're probably a bit unlucky that it's failed, but the only real solution now is to replace the camera.

To much time between photos

Hi, there are usually two reasons for this, either the battery or memory card.

Try a fresh set of alkaline batteries as they have a higher voltage than rechargeable ones.
If you notice an improvement then look on eBay for a set of Lithium Ion batteries which are rechargeable but also have a higher voltage than the NiMh cells that are usually used.

The other factor is the speed of the memory card, newer cards & higher quality cards can be written to faster, check your local camera shop & they may advise or even let you try other types.

Lastly look at the quality settings, if you're just taking snaps to email do you really need the highest quality setting? Try setting a lower quality that writes less data to the card.

Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
