Hi!
That is not actually a SIM card. It is a memory card. You have to take it off from the camera and then look for a small switch on the side. You have to move it the other way around to unlock the memory card.
Let me know how that goes.
Good luck!

When I turn on my camera to shot a picture, it will not let me. Instead a screen pops up that says "card write protected." What does this mean?


Look at your memory card. SD and 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.
If this doesn't do it, try a different card.

Hi, someone drop my Ricoh R7 camera in the floor and since then the lens can not be withdrawn. It make some noise but isn't moving and doesn't switch on.


Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

How do you put all my pictures on my sim card?


I think that your sim card doesn't support pictures on it, maybe you must try to put them on your memory card. And i think it's easy. You can search for "options>Copy>Card"

On my DMC-TZ8 the screen says "this memory card is write -protected " how do I solve this problem , only had camera two months I have took memory card out all seems alright THANKYOU


Your memory card is either write protected or corrupted.
  • If it's write protected, it can be very easily fixed.
  1. Turn off cam.
  2. Take out the mem. card. (it's probably located near the battery. press down on it and release it. Then it will pop out.)
  3. Slide the small switch on the side of the card to the position marked with an unlocked padlock.
  4. Put card back in and turn on cam.
  • If that doesn't seem to be the problem, then it's likely that the memory card is corrupted. This is common with Flash memory that has been used extensively for a long time and this problem is likely not caused by any fault in the camera. You might not be able to access any pictures that were stored on your cam, but you can try using a data recovery software like Recuva if you want to recover pictures ( click name to download ). If you want to use the card again, You can try formatting it (differs from cam to cam, check instructions manual for specific instructions) If this doesn't work, You will have to buy a new card. Make sure you buy a good brand like Lexar or SanDisk.

That's it. hope that helped.

Caplio R7 Lens having black spots


Sounds like the spots are on your sensor. If on the lens, it would be too out of focus to matter.

My Ricoh Caplio R7 won't recognise the SD card anymore (and only saves to the limited internal memory). I've tried other SD cards and they don't work either.


1. Go into the menu and scroll to "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. 2. With the memory card out of the camera, go into the menu and scroll to "format"...follow the on-screen instructions.
3. If the pictures from the card are safely on your computer, format the card in the camera. 4. Be sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position.

Ricoh R7 'unmatched files'


It could be that you've used the SD card in a PC/Card reader etc? I've had a similar problem in the past, but so long as I reformat the card every time it's been in my PC, it seems to be ok. However, it also seemed to be more the case with cards that had been used very frequently, so if you say you've tried a few cards, I could be wrong - but might suggest giving the re-formatting thing a try anyway to see if that helps.
