Can't take a pic, delete or anything

It says SD Protect. I have 3 discs and all are on unlock so this isn't the problem.

Greetings Cinmo7,

One solution some have suggested is to put a thin piece of scotch tape over the slide lock to "trick" the camera into thinking it is not locked. However, if three of your cards all are giving you this error, this leads me to believe you may have a problem with your actual camera, because the sensor that reads the cards is in your camera. You may want to have it looked at by a professional camera repair person.

Thank you,

There is a small microswitch on the inside that should be closed when a disc is available for writing. This switch is defective. While a simple repair for an experienced tech, I would not recommend you open this up unless you are experienced. The switch will be a surface mounted part.

MY CAMERA SAYS CARD PROTECT AND WONT LET ME DO ANYTHING


Look at your memory card. 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.

Why is card protected


There is a small slider on the side of the card to enable write protection - you have probably inadvertently slid this to the "write protect" position. It should be in the position shown in the pic to allow writes.

Everytime I put the SD Memory card and I try to take a picture or video it says card protect and won't let me do anything. What should I do?


Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. 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. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

i had this same problem... take your SD memory card to a computer, and format it then it should work.

Once loaded into a computer: 1) locate drive under My computer that should say SD or removable disk 2) right-click and then click the format tab 3) one the window is open format the SD card . . . it will erase everything on the card but it should solve your issue.

Can't take a picture


Greetings Cinmo7,

There is a small tab on the side of your card that might have gotten into the locked position. This can prevent you from deleting your photos or taking pictures, much like punching out the cutout on a cassette. Take your card out of your camera and slide the tab to the unlocked position.

Thank you,

Write protected card


Look carefully at the SD card. On one side you will find a "lock" switch. The card in question has this switch in the lock position. You can not delete an existing video because the delete function actually requires the ability to update the card which is a writing function. Flip the switch and your problem should be resolved.
