Hey mstancer,
Directions on how to do this start on page 72 of your user manual, and I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual. I hope this helps!

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.

How to recover deleted photos from pentax optio w20 camera


If the photos are on a memory card and you haven't done anything to the card since erasing the photos, there's a change you may be able to recover at least some of them. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and find a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader connected to your computer and run the program.

The instructions for protecting/unprotecting images are in the "Protecting images" section of the manual (page 98 in my copy).

The best way to delete all photos on a memory card is to format the memory card. This should be done each time you finish transferring your pictures to a computer, as FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve pictures from cards that haven't been recently formatted. Refer to the "Formatting Memory Cards" section of the manual (page 22 in my copy).

If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

Canon has the documentation available at their site: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_sd_series/powershot_sd750#BrochuresAndManuals .

To delete photos, first press the Playback (looks like the Play button on most recorders) button. This is above the main menu wheel. Use the left and right arrows to move to other shots (you start at the most recent picture). Then press the button that looks like a picture frame in a trash can. Confirm that Erase is the chosen function and press Func./Set button. Press Cancel to avoid deleting the picture. Please note that there is no equivalent to the Recycle Bin on a computer so you will not be able to recover a deleted picture.


I hope this helps.

Recently after i have downloaded the pictures to my computer, i want to go back and look at them on the camera and they say no image, they have been deleted, how do i correct this problem


If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones.
All the download links listed in the article are through CNET, primarily to verify that these are malware free software, and to give you a chance to read user reviews on the software before downloading.

Will not take picture


1) Take the card out of the camera, check about half way up on the left hand side there may be a small sliding notch, slide it to wrtie enable and re-incert it in your camera.

2) If 1 didn't work, there's also a photo protect option in you camer menu, ensure that is also off.
