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.

I have olympus epl 1 - 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

Olympus T-100, write protect shows on the screen & won't operate ??


Look at your memory card. SD/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.

My Olympus T-100 camera is showing writing protect card full and wont let me erase


can mean that the memory card is locked. take out the memory card and check for a lock slide at the sides of the card that you can adjust to a lock and unlock position, then test the card again.

Write protect


When you disconnected the camera, did you use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom of your computer screen?

Write protect error olympus c 150 (cant get rid of read only)


Hi!

You might wanna check on your memory card. It could be that it is currently on write-protected mode. What you want to do is to check it now and then look for something like a push button. If its on the top position, push it downwards. Vice versa.

Write protection


Hi, The PDF of your manual is HERE. Page 28 refers how to remove protection on stored photo's.

Page 30 lists how to connect to your PC with USB cable.
You should use the software disc with the camera (or available from Olympus) to navigate to delete this option.

It should be on a menu as an option.
