Hi Frodo,
Sorry but Bilbo's still the man ? Hobbit?
I can fix this, but it really will take a chat.
Down load all your favorites, format your card.
We can make that camera like brand new,
You will have to start all over, with all settings.
Let me know,
Regards, Paul

Nikon D90 flashed CHR and next time using camera LCD was black/grey with stripes and no pics HELP!!!


The CRH error message means that the lock tab on your memory card is in the locked position. The purpose for the lock switch is to allow you to set your SD card so that you cannot accidently erase your valuable pictures. Remove your SD flash memory card from the camera and hold it in your hand with the label toward you and the angled corner to the upper right. Look on the left edge of the card and you will see a very small slider switch. Make sure the switch is in the fully up position then reinsert it in the D90. If the camera is not generating a false error, your camera should work correctly.

I HAVE A NEW POWER SHOT SX130 IS (CANNON0 I DO NOT KNOW HOW TODELETE THE DOWNLOADED PICTURES FROM THE MEMORY CARD


You can delete photos from your SX130 IS in two ways:
To Delete Photos Individually:
  1. Press Playback Mode button (looks like a play button and is located on the top right on the LCD-side of your camera)
  2. The last image you took will appear on the LCD screen.
  3. Use the Left & Right arrow keys or turn scroll wheel to cycle through your images
  4. Once you find an image you want to delete, press the Trash button. The image will be erased.
  5. Press the Playback Mode button or the FUNC/SET buttons to exit when done
To Delete ALL Photos
  1. Press the MENU button (bottom right button on LCD-side of camera) to bring up the Menu screen
  2. On the Playback tab (Looks like a Play button icon), use the arrow buttons or turn scroll wheel to scroll down to Erase. Press the FUNC/SET button.
  3. You now have three options Select, Select Range, and All images. Select will allow you to delete individual images, Select Range will allow you to select a series of images, and All images will delete all images from memory. This last one is the option we are looking for.
  4. Use the arrow keys or scroll wheel to choose All images
  5. Use the arrow key or scroll wheel to select OK when the Erase confirmation screen pops up.
  6. Your images will be erased!

HOW DO I UNLOCK PROTECTED PICTURES IN MY CAMERA


Press MENU to enter the menu. Select the SETUP menu (the wrench icon). Select Protect (the key icon). Protected pictures are indicated by a little key icon in the upper-left corner of the picture. Navigate to the protected ones and press up/down to unprotect.

Or is the entire card protected? SD and SDHC 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. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

How to unlock a picture


Go to the playback menu and select it (you may have to adjust the circular option know to get to the playback menu). Once there, scroll to the picture(s) that are locked by using the sideways selection arrow buttons. Then select the up or down arrows, which will lock or unlock your picture. You can also erase any locked pictures, in case you want to, by formatting the xD card. Hope this helps.

Picture has a sideways "key" on it and won't erase. I have an Olympus FE-210, how do I get rid of the "key" and am then able to erase the picture?


On page 22 of your user manual it talks about protecting images. Looks like you go to playback menu use the arrow keys to select the locked image - then press up or down arrow to remove the key symbol fromt he image by selecting ON or OFF.

Canon Rebel XT EOS won't erase pics


If the image has a small icon of a skeleton key along the bottom when viewing it, it means the image has been protected. You have to un-protect the image to erase it. This is done from the Playback Menu (the one with the arrow on the tab). Specific instructions are on page 115 in the manual. (Manual is available here if you don't have it.)
