Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

WRITE PROTECT ERROR SCREEN - 6c99e31.jpg

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

Memory card error


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.

Will not allow me to take pictures give me an error code of write protect on the view screen


From another posted solution:

Write protection is a physical device that prevents you from writing or changing information on a disc. For digital cameras this is usually a "lock" slider on SD cards. Try sliding it to the other side if your getting an error.

Error message on screen " write protect" why is this?


Is your memory card write protected, SD cards have a small notch on the left hand side of the card which you can slide up or down to select/deselect protection.

Most cameras also have a photo protection facility in the menu to stop you over writing pictures you've decided to protect.

This can be switched on or off via the camera menu under card settings.

Protect error


Hi,

If your amplifier goes into the protection, there's really something wrong. There are different kind of protections but usually that circuit does see a DC voltage on your speakeroutput.
So it's a protection for your speakers.

Protection error


I was having this problem and after research on internet found that this could be because of speakers wire being short. I recheck all the connections and most likely have short due to wires being stapled on the wall and staple causing short. It is working fine now for me. Check your wires...

"Write Protect"?!


It's the memory card. 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.

Protection Error when switching on SD-43HK


You will need to get a service manual and trouble shoot what amp. circuit is defective. if you have no solid state printed circuit board experience, you really should take this unit in to a repair shop and have it estimated. There is no quick fix for this unit. Good Luck.

"Memory card is protected"


This error message indicates that the memory card is locked. The switch on the memory card is in the write-protect position. Reset the switch as shown on the camera screen.
