Re: Card locked

Not sure what kind of card it is but let me talk about SD. If you look at the left side of the disk when the label is facing you and upright, you should see a little slider. In one position it is locked. Slide it to the opposite side and it is UNLOCKED.

How to unlock a photo in camara

The protect function allows a user to protect a picture from accidental deletion. To unprotect a picture on your camera, scroll to the protected picture that you want to delete, then press the Menu button (the button to the right of the Play button.) Scroll down the menu and you should come to an option that allows you to Protect/Unprotect the picture. Since your picture is currently protected, deselect that option. You should then be able to delete the picture normally.

Alternatively, you could also format the memory card, however this deletes ALL photos and data you have on the memory card. If you are trying to completely clear the memory, this is the best way. After turning on your camera, simply press the Menu button, scroll to Setup, then scroll down to Format. Select Format, it will ask you if you want to format the memory card, or the camera's built-in memory. Format whichever one you want to clear, if you are using a memory card then your pictures are stored on the memory card. It will take a few seconds to format.

Hope this helps.

I'd like to delete all the pics on the card, but its not allowing me to.

Check thath the pictures are not 'protected' and the card is not in 'lock'-position. If you're not able to delete the pictures in the camera, use a card reader and delete them in the computer. You can also 'move' the pictures during download instead of just 'copy' them. This will clear the card. Also formatting the card will erase any files on the card.

Cannot delete photos" Card Protected" appears on screen

There should be a small switch on the memory card that allows users to lock it so no one can delete pictures on it. Take the memory card out of the camera and look for this switch on the card and make sure it is not in the locked position.

take out the memory card and move the switch located somewhere on the memory card usually on the side to the unlocked position. Then the memory card isn't locked this is so you don't accidentally delete important things
