Hello Voddy,
I have the same Camera C-3020 Zoom.

I can delete pictures just after I have taken them by using the buttons on the back of the camera, just after taking the photo and after it quits blinking meaning that it is done storing the photo, I now press the middle button that has a white square on it 2 times fast.

This button is on the back of the camera just to the right of the viewing screen. This puts the camera in a mode to view the photos you have already stored in memory. I use the 4 navigation button that are just north of that button to select through to the photo I want to delete, when I find it I then I press the black round button that is at the top of the back of the camera near the viewer opening just above the read square screen,
This button has a white lightening bolt next to it.
This then brings up a message on the screen that says ERASE in RED letters...You use the navigation buttons to indicate YES or NO and then you press OK and this one photo is deleted. You have succeeded if immediately see lots of blinking of the red light.
This is a good habit to get into to get rid of poor photos right away so you don't store them forever..
There are two more ways to delete, one is to remover the card and put it in card reader and do it on your computer in exporer and another way is to directly connect your camera with a grey cable that is probably in the bag to your USB port. I now like this one as the least work method. If you decide to do this the plug in spot is a door you open on the left side of the camera.

Please let me know if this advice solved your problem with a reply. Thanks

SOURCE: I have a Vivitar X225

First take the memory card out of the camera. Pictures that have been deleted are probably still there, but will be overwritten if you take any more pictures on top of them.

Your camera is not able to undelete pictures, but there are programs for doing this on a computer. You can put the memory card into a card reader attached to a computer, and use an undelete program to recover the deleted files. Undelete programs are available for free download from the internet, try the one at THIS LINK

If the pictures are very important to you, you might want to seek help from an experienced person.

How do I delete pictures when the camera will not display them

Hi can you take the memory card out and look at them on a pc or laptop ? if so you could delete them there.
You could delete everything on the card by formating the memory card.
Sounds like there is some sort of problem with the card or camera if you cant see the pictures. Can you see any pictures on the camera? Do you have another memory card you could use to do a few test shots on and then see if you can delete them.

How do I delete pictures from a coolpix S4000

To delete individual pictures: while viewing the picture, tap the trash can icon on the screen, then tap yes when it asks for confirmation.

To delete all pictures on a memory card: format the card. TAP MENU, tap the wrench icon, select "Format card."

To delete all pictures in internal memory: format internal memory. Tap MENU, tap the wrench icon, select "Format memory."

The delete instructions are in the "Deleting Pictures" section of the manual (page 33 in my copy). The format instructions are in the "Format Memory/Format Card" section of the manual (page 150). If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

I put my memory card into laptop, message says my card is full, and yet i delete my pics from camera., do i have to delete from memory card also, if so how do i do that.

Did you delete the pictures from the internal camera memory and not the SD card? An easy way to solve this problem would be to insert the card into your computer and open up "My Computer". In here you should see your memory card mounted as a usable drive. Open up the SD card, select everything in it by pressing "Control" + "A" and then hitting delete. This will clean everything off of the card. If you want to save the files from the card first, simply make a folder somewhere on your PC and drag all of the files from the SD card into that folder after pressing "Control" + "A". If you are still getting an error stating your card is full after removing them this way you may need to re-format the card or it may be malfunctioning.

How do I clear the memory card it keeps saying memory full but I have deleted all pictures

Deleting pictures one by one is time consuming and hard on the memory card. Right now you have deleted the images but the memory card needs to be formatted. Always format the memory card never delete what camera make and model are you using and do you have the manual?

Need to delete protected pictures

Try to remove first the memory card of your camera. After you remove the card you can see a small button at the side of the memory card. Just slide the small button to unprotected. Insert your memory card back to your camera and try to delete pictures.

Deleting Mass Pictures

You can and should delete your images while the memory card is in your camera. In your manual or on the menu of the camera find the "Format" procedure and format the memory card.

Always do this with the camera. It does not work well formating the memory card with a computer.
