Hi,
Do you have a memory card in the camera? most likely then this means that on the memory card itself there is a small switch to lock and unlock the card. This is to prevent overwriting of important data. Switch the small switch to the unlock position you should be good. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

    Hi,
    So you do have a memory card in the camera? Then i would need the make and model of the memory card. Usually its a very small switch somewhere on the side of the card.
    Thank you,
    Lee

    the memory card is



    Olympus XD - Picture Card M2GB on front of card



    No signs of a switch on the card at all .... the casing is enclosed

    How long have you owned this memory card? I am almost certain this model of card doesn't have a switch on it. This may be a sign that the memory card is defective and you should replace it immediately. If under warranty have it replaced under warranty. You can contact olympus at this link directly to inquire about warranty repair/replacement:

When i open my camera it shows write protected from after i connected to my computer. can i fix it my self.If ican then how?\


Write protected means the you can only see but you can't add anything to it, in this case it would be your SD card.
Try checking your memory card, there should be a kind of switch on the side, if there is, it must be on "Lock", just slide it up or down, depends on where the lock section is. Try it again.
If it doesn't work, then you must go to the camera's properties, and unblock from here, also make sure the read and write boxes are checked. Goo dluck and hope it works.

How do I remove write protect from my olympus fe-340 camera?


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.

I've had my Olympus FE-340 for 3 years, and I've never had any problems with it before. Now, whenever I try to zoom in, the camera takes white pictures or pictures with streaks in them. I've tried reseting...


I have exactly the same problem. I am writing an email to Olympus for further advice. I beleive there is some replacement policy as this seems to be a manufacturer problem.

Just push the switch to the other side to unlock the card. This should do the trick.

Kind regards

Fe-340 wont turn on


If the lens is stuck out, that either means impact or it got squished and messed up the lens mechanism. You can have that repaired.
