Question about Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera
When turned on says 'memory card protected write only' and won't let me delete pictures
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.

Inspect your SD card carefully. Some SD cards come with a write-protect lock switch on the side of the card. When looking at an SD card from the top there is one required notch on the right side (the side with the diagonal notched corner) and on the left side there is usually a switch. This is the write-protect switch. When this write-protect switch is in the down position (away from the end that is inserted) then it is write protected and read-only. When the switch is in the up position it is write enabled.

SOURCE: memory card
From your description it sounds like your card is full. Are you able to download to your computer? If you are able to do that then try deleting individual photos on the card using the Computer to do so. If you can achieve that then try to Re-format the card back in your Camera. Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: memory card is write protected
Take your memory card out of the camera and switch the position of the little "lock" tab. That should fix it and you can start saving images.

Take the memory card out of the camera.
You will see a small switch on the card (it is the lock switch)
Slide it to the opposite side and there you go!
It's easy to accidentally lock your card without even knowing it.
lol my mom just had this exact same problem and it was driving her crazy (she too didn't realize the card had a physical lock switch)
