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.

how do i fix a

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

How do i dispose of old movie film


Garbage bin? Sorry I could not help, making this joke. But I think I know what you mean. The old movie film is still in your camera?
On a memory card? If it is the only movie, it would be a good idea to format the memory card. This not only will wipe the movie, but cleans up the card complete.
If I had known more details, perhaps I could have told you what menu item you should goto, for wiping picture, or movie. Or for formatting.
I also could warn you, if certain messages came on the screen, like Picture is protected or card is protected.

How do I fix the write protect message error?


Open your camera to find the memory card/sd card inside. it may have a small tab on it you can click to protect the card. Make sure it is not set to protected.
If it is an sd card it will look like a very small white tab.

Protected Card warning won't let me shoot pictures, can't find info how to delete or fix this.


Hi,

To remove the write protect lock, take the memory card out of the camera, 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 up to unlock it, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg .

My camera says write protect and won't let me take pics


Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.
