Hi,

Some memory cards have a Write Protection switch on them.
To check this please remove the Memory card from the camera. Check if there is a "lock" switch on the left side.
Slide this switch to the "Unlocked" position, and reinsert the card into the camera.

This should resolve the issue and the error should go away.

In case the issue persists, it could mean the the write protect on this card was perhaps set by mistake while it was connected to the computer.

You will need to use the computer to cancel the read-only setting.
Please connect the card to your computer through the camera or a card reader and cancel the write protect on the card.

This will resolve the issue you are facing.
If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be more than happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will look forward to your feedback and positive rating.

When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock or not protected.

I need a solution please, the camera says protec escr and i cant do nothing, can you help me?


You didn't specify the make and model of your camera, so 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.

My camera Olympu FE-340 is locked, it got locked when i conected it to my laptop, i can transfer the photos i have in it to my laptop, but when i want to take photos the screen gets black and red letters...


Perhaps the protection slider on the memory card has slipped into the locked position, or is there a 'protection' or 'favourites' setting in the camera menus?

Buenos dias tengo un problema con mi camara es una olympus con memoria xd picture card la prendimos y no podemos sacar fotos ni filmar nos aparese la palabra protec escr con signo de admiracion que puede...


Desde el menú de la cámara formatea la memoria.
Si no funciona, formatéala desde la PC.
Si no se formatea en una PC, la memoria está defectuosa. Compra otra.
