Cant take photos as it says the card is write protected

This only happened recently, i can view photos but can't take them as a blue screen apears with write protected. i don't have the manual or software provied with the camera as i'm away from home. any ideas?

I have had the same camera and card for about 3 years now and i took it out to take a picture of my new tattoo, but it is saying card is write protected and wont let me take pictures. I can view pictures and the only other pace my card has been is in my card slot of my lap top. any ideas on how to fix this or is my card shot??

    Is it an SD card? If so, there is a small switch on the side, very small, if it is in the wrong position, the card will be 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.

I cant take photos anymore and the LCD screen says CARD'S WRITE PROTECT SWITCH IS SET TO LOCK.How can i solve this problem?


You didn't specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm going to assume it uses SD and/or SDHC cards.
SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
If this doesn't do it, try another card.

My dad has a fuji finepix a500 camera. lately, he's noticed that some of the images on the screen are showing instead as a blue screen with "read error". how can we fix this/what has...


What happens on your camera is related to the pc modifying the image file, hence the camera can't read it as they use different formats to write and read the images.
Can you see the pictures stored on your father's camera on the PC? Because if that's not possible, then the camera has an internal problem and you might have to consider taking it to a repair shop, or even consider buying a new one.

Hi Madhavkavrel,
Just switch it off and remove your simcard and then put it again and switch it on. If then also it does not work , then uninstall any recent software if you have installed on it,, it would work,,,,,





good luck with your fix,,,
have a nice day,,

Press the Home button. Touch the right-pointing arrow to enter Playback mode. Here you can view the photos and videos you've taken. You can also rotate, protect, delete and crop your photos and you can protect and delete videos. You can also go into thumbnail view to see more than one picture at a time.
