Since you didn't specify the make and model camera, I'll assume it uses SD and/or SDHC cards.

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 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.

Card protect won't allow me to take photos


SD and SDHC memory 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 cant take photos anymore and the LCD screen says CARD'S WRITE PROTECT SWITCH IS SET TO LOCK.How can i solve this problem?


You didn't specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm going to assume it uses SD and/or SDHC cards.
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.
If this doesn't do it, try another card.

Can't take photos as it says card protected. I don't know how to unprotect it?


There are 2 protection that you have to check:
1) Check on your SD Memory card that on the side there is a small switch. Move it to the opposite position and reinsert in the camera. Take a picture and see if it is OK.
2) If still appearing the message go in the PLAY menu of the camera and where there is the entry PROTECT with a Key Logo select NO.
Then it should be working fine.
Remember that then your pictures are not protected anymore.

PDG

Check the menu, many cameras allow you to enable photo protection, you may have some photos protected. You won't be able until that protection is removed.

"the media is write protected"


Look on the memory card, some have a tiny switch that write protects them.

Card protect message doesn't allow any activity with camera how to remove?


Hi there
Face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab down, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg .
Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Card Protected


If you read the manual there is a section on protecting frames. You should be able to go into the menu on the camera and unprotect all, which should allow you to then write new photos and remove old ones on the card.
