Remove your memory card from the camera and set the tiny switch to unlock position. The switch is located at the side of the memory card.

How can I switch on memory card?


Make sure the memory card in not write protected. There is a small sliding switch on it.

On the camera, go to Settings and look for Save to Camera, Save to SD Card.

How to unlock a photo in camara


The protect function allows a user to protect a picture from accidental deletion. To unprotect a picture on your camera, scroll to the protected picture that you want to delete, then press the Menu button (the button to the right of the Play button.) Scroll down the menu and you should come to an option that allows you to Protect/Unprotect the picture. Since your picture is currently protected, deselect that option. You should then be able to delete the picture normally.

Alternatively, you could also format the memory card, however this deletes ALL photos and data you have on the memory card. If you are trying to completely clear the memory, this is the best way. After turning on your camera, simply press the Menu button, scroll to Setup, then scroll down to Format. Select Format, it will ask you if you want to format the memory card, or the camera's built-in memory. Format whichever one you want to clear, if you are using a memory card then your pictures are stored on the memory card. It will take a few seconds to format.

Hope this helps.

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


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked/protected", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card (which you said you've tried), or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

How do I erase my memory card? Thanks, Chris


Hi,

You can format your memory card using the camera's menu to "format" removes all files and reinstalls the cameras' directory to the memory card for use in the camera.

Note:- Formatting the memory card erase all the data including protected images and other file types. So, once you formatted the memory card there is no way to restore them.

Rating the solution is highly appreciated...Good Luck

Memory card write protected


Check the side of the memory card. Some of them have a little switch that turns on/off write protection. If there is no switch, you can try to format it in the computer first, then put it in the camera and format it again.
