You didn't specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm assuming it uses SD cards.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

There is no sd card inn my camara but it reads write protect and cant take any pictures


As long as you don't put in any memory card, where the camera can put its pictures, it will say write protected.
If you did put in a memory card the wrong way around you also can have damaged the little switch in the memory card holder, so it always thinks the switch is engaged. Please put in a correct card, with the lock switch up. Not pointing to the lock position and check if that will work.

Camera shows write protect when open


When what is open? Always keep the battery / memory card door closed. If it is not closed correct, the camera won't work as expected. To protect the file system, when someone should pul out the memory card, while the camera is accessing the memory, it will or shut down completely, or at least protect the memory card against writing to it.
Before opening the battery / memory card cover, always make sure the camera is completely shut off. That means no light is allowed to burn or flicker. The memory card can also be write protected (SD cards) when the lock switch is down like in the picture on the 32GB card.
Before you can make any picture the switch on the card should be up like on the 64GB card on the picture. 3635bcf4-65df-478c-a04d-92e341d15860.jpg

2) Go through your camera menu look for photo protect, check if you've write protected all your photo's.

Fujifilem Z20fd I cant turn the card protection off which appears


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Is your flash working? Do you have the flash turned on?

Protected card pops up and I cant take any pics?


Remove the card from the camera.  There is a small slide tab on the card which shows a picture of a lock.  Move the slide tab to the unlock position.  If this doesn't fix it, replace the card.
