Re: locked card

What do you mean "locked"? Did you accidentally slide the "lock" tab on the card itself? Also, these cameras are VERY picky with memory cards. They can cause numerous errors, and cause the camera to shut itself off for no reason.

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.

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

When trying to clear out my camera... there is a black screen & it'll say this picture cannot be deleted when i try to delete. taking up space that i would like to use

Make sure the picture you can't remove isn't locked. When you're in review press menu and make sure that photo isn't set to locked (if so unlock and you should be able to delete it).
If that doesn't help, make sure you copy off all the images on the card you want, as the following instructions are intended to clear the entire card.
After you transfer all the images you want, you'll want to format the memory card. This can be done one of two ways. If you have the appropriate card reader on your PC, you can insert the card, find it in my computer. Then right click it and select format.
The easier way is to use your camera's format feature. I don't have that specific model, but it can usually either be found in menu, or by pressing the picture review button and then menu. Formatting the card should erase all the data on it and clear off the picture you don't want.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

I put my memory card in my card reader and connect it in a computer to delete the pictures in it but everytime I attempt to delete it, it says cannot delete PICT0005, the disk is write protected. Remove...

Hi due to so many questions asked about this here it is. How to deal with memory card locked/write protected error.


SOLUTION 1 - Unlock the memory card.

There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked.

SOLUTION 2 - Toggle the lock switch.

If the lock switch is not on lock:
1. Slide the switch up and down. Repeat this 3 times.
2. Let it stay on the Lock position for 30 seconds.
3. Slide the switch up to unlock the card.
4. Try to transfer files into the device.

For non-SD cards: Format the card

The data on the memory card may be corrupted.

WARNING: Formatting will delete all the files in the device. Backup all your data before formatting.

Protected feature

There are 2 probable solutions. 1. The images are "protected" by the camera & will show "locked" when you try to erase them. 2. The SD card in the camera is locked. The solution to 1 is to unlock the images in the playback menu. See page 46 of the manual. Note that you need to select "unlock" you can't select protect as they are already protected! Solution 2 is to remove the card from the camera & check the "lock" slider that you can see on the side (although no all cards have this). Set the lock off. You can download the manual from the first link on the following page: Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
