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.

Protected card. How do I 'un-protect' it? - 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

SOURCE: 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

It sounds like the locking switch on the side of the SD card is in the "locked" position. Remove the card from the camera and slide the tiny switch on the card to the unlocked position. That should do it.

SOURCE: "card write protected"

There is a minuscule tab on the side of the card, towards the "handle"-end of the card. Slide this tab to unlock the card and allow write and delete once again.

SOURCE: Card protected

When the card is protected you need to remove it first. You can slide the small button at right side of the card so that it will be being protected. After you've slide the small button you can use your camera.

Write Protection


Most cards have a switch on the side for protection. Pull the card, switch the switch, and put it back in.

Flash drives don't have a switch, but can be protected by an administrator, and un-protected the same way.

When I want to take photo a message says: memory card is write protected.How can I solve this problem


Take the memory card out of your camera. 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.

Make sure the slide switch on the side of the card is unlocked. Your camera may just want you to format the card in the camera. Download any pics from it first using a card reader if necessary.

If that doesn't work, try another card.
