Take out the SD Card and on the side of the card you will find a small plastic toggle that you can slide up or down. Slide it opposite to where is it now. This will disable the write protection on the card and allow you to take pictures.

I know how to fix problem like this. If you want to copy a picture from Camera to PC, just use a Card Reader.

What's your problem?While trying to take a picture it keeps coming up with write projects and won't allow me to take the picture


I assume it's actually saying "write protect" and not "write project".

Look at your memory card. SD 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.

Protected card message


on the side of some picture cards there is a little tab that slides back and forth. If your card hs this try sliding it the other way. These are a write protection so to speak, or a lock in a sense

Write protect message appears on screen


Sounds as if the memory card may be corrupted. In order to remove the write protect, make sure you have downloaded and saved all of the images from the memory card to your computer and then having the card in the camera you will need to run the format option and this will permanently remove the write protect as well as all of the images from the card.
The card should be able to be used again after the write protect is removed.
