I have a V1003. It is saying memory card is protected (reset switch on memory card).

move the switch on the memory card, then put it back into the camera, if its still locked, take the card out and look did the switch move to the other posititon? if it did, then something is touching the lever as you put it in the camera.
if it did not move but the card is still locked. try formatting the card with the format option in your camera, if that doesn't help then the sensor in the camera that detects if the lever is on the locked position or not is jammed and thinks the card is locked, to fix the problem the sensor needs to be fixed, you need to take the entire camera apart to get to it.

I have bought a F401 sold as brand new !!! once charged up instead of getting an image on the lcd screen all i get is coloured streaks - not good for a new camera eh ? i wonder if the sensor is faulty...

The newest review I could find on this camera was in 2007. I hope you received a manual with it. This camera uses an XD card an SD card will drop in the slot but not work. Okay when you first get the camera the day date and time need to be set. there is an internal battery that retains these settings. What you need to do is go into your menu and format your camera may call it initialize the memory card both the camera internal memory and the memory card in this case an XD card. It doesn't matter that it's a new card or camera the memory has to be formatted. each time you down load pictures to your computer hard drive the memory card will need to be formatted. After you have formatted your problem should go away, if not I'd be taking it back.

What is the difference between DX and FX formats

The FX format uses a sensor very close in size to a frame of traditional 35mm film, about 36mm by 24mm. The DX format uses a smaller sensor, about 24mm by 18mm. The smaller sensor allows the camera to be smaller (compact point&shoot cameras use sensors much smaller) and also are less expensive.

The most visible effect of the difference is the so-called lens multiplier. The smaller sensor uses only the central portion of the image projected by the lens, in effect multiplying the focal length of the lens. In this case, a 100mm lens attached to a DX camera will give just about the same picture you would get with a 150mm lens attached to a FX camera.

In general, FX lenses will work fine on DX cameras, taking into account the lens multiplier mentioned above. DX lenses will not work properly on FX cameras, since the smaller DX lens won't always capture the full images needed to cover the larger FX sensor. Some FX cameras automatically switch to DX mode when it detects a DX lens.

Hi there.
Check the card an make sure the write protect is not on, if it is,
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 down, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg .

Please post back if you need any additional advice.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!
