Question about Fuji FinePix Z1 Digital Camera
Thank you for using Fixya!!!
Before you try anything, try using another card. If the problem persists, try the suggestions below.
OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.
If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.
If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.
If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:
1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.
Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.
It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.
If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.
Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Remove memory card from the camera, look along the one edge and you will see a tiny switch, slide it towards the contacts to unlock the card, the switch in the furthest position from the contacts is in the locked position to protect the photo's from deletion. Now! if the card is in the unlocked position slide it back and forth to reset the card, If that fails replace the memory card.
