I am going to assume that the camera is using an SD memory card. Remove the memory card. On the side of the memory card there is a small gray (usually) in color that moves up and down, one postion ^ is for lock (write protected) the other is unlocked. Move the small slide, re-insert card and try again.

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 have a memory card in my camera but it wont let me take pictures. the screen says Memory card is protected reset switch on memory card....


You neglected to specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm assuming it uses SD/SDHC cards.
SD/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.

Look at your memory card. 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.

My camera wont take pics and keeps saying card protect


Hi kyla04,

This could be as a result of the memory card being right protected by the right protect switch on it.


What you need to solve this problem is remove the memory card out and use the right protect switch and unlock it , you would just require to move the switch from it's position , please find the image below for more assistance.

My picture card is saying no picture when i go to take a picture the card says full it wont let me take a picture??


Hi.

Check AE lock custom button:

Ensure that the memory card has no protective seal or object in front of the protection area. See here.

Ensure that the files are not individually protected (Key sign in settings)

If that does not fix the problem, then the card may be defective. In that case replace the card.

Here a manual.

My son got a vivitar 8025 and it wont take pictures it keeps telling us the card is protected. What does this mean and how do we fix it?


did you put an sd memory card into it? this camera will not take pics without an sd memory card (it did not come with any memory to hold pics on the camera itself). the memory card needs to be inserted into the slot right next to the battery:)

Card locked


There's a little yellow switch on the left side of your memory card labled "lock" with an arrow pointing down. Push it up. Note: If it doesn't work right away, try uploading all your photos to your computer and then dumping them off of the card.  Push the switch up again and it should start taking pictures again.
