Remove the 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 that is in the furthest position from the contacts is in the locked position to prevent the pictures from being erased, now! if you find the card is already unlocked slide it back and forth to reset. If that fails the memory card will need to be replaced.

SD Card Problems with Vivitar Vivicam 5118!


What size is the memory card. If it's larger than 4GB then it won't work in the 5118.
Try using another card. Don't format it in your computer but do format it in the camera before trying to take pictures.

What is the little red button on the lense on the end that screw to the camera that has a red L


That's the aperture lock lever. On many Nikon cameras, the lens needs to have the aperture ring turned to f/32 and locked in place. You then control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.
On older Nikon cameras, you unlock the aperture ring and control the aperture by turning the ring.

My camera has a "cardlock" when I turn it on? How


Hi,
There is only one type of card that I know of that has a locking feature. That is an SD memory card. It has a little white slider on the outside of it. In small letters it says "LOCK" . Push the slider in the opposite direction of the arrow i.e. to unlock it.
If this is the case, then the camera should be able to communicate and write to the card.
There is the possibility that the device in the camera which detects this slider is damaged. In that case the camera should be repaired.
There is an additional problem that can occur. That is the card can be corrupted. Open this link

I have a Polaroid a530 and when I turn it on it says Protected Card in red letters across the screen. I havent used this camera for about a year so maybe that has something to do with it but it won't allow...


Look at your memory card. 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.

If that doesn't do it, try a different card.

"The card is locked"


Take you memory card off the camera and on the side of the card you should have a small lock symbol. Make sure this is set to unlock

Every time I turn on my camera it has a black background a a red line in the middle that has in white letters "the card is locked" what does that mean?


Turn your camera off. Open the memory card access door and remove the memory card. If it is like the SD and XD cards or IS one of those, check along one edge of the card and there should be a tiny (usually white in color) slide switch. Make sure that this switch is in the "unlocked" position and replace it back into the camera and try it. Sometimes the switch moves as you take it in and out. Off brand cards have loose switches that can move just by handling the camera. I had to jam one of mine into the unlocked position with a tiny piece of thick paper stuck into the switch slot. Be careful when putting the card back into the camera that you don't catch the switch on the camera slot and move it back into locked mode. If this has helped, please rate it accordingly. Thanks and good luck.

When I turn the camera o a red stripe with white


Some cards have a lock tab on them. Make sure it is not in the lock position. If no go then take the card to a photo place and see if they can read it and download your photos. If that does not work then you can reformat the card (you will lose your photos). If you still are experiencing problems, try another card. If that does not work then it's off to the warranty repair or time to get a new camera. Repairs on these are only worth it if they are free or really cheap.

Canon Rebel won't turn on, red light next to "CF"


Hi,
Assuming you have tried another card you know to be good...
Remove the memory card, main and backup battery, switch the camera on for 10 mins. While you are waiting look into the memory card slot with a torch and make sure none of the pins at the bottom are bent.
If there is this will mean opening the camera to straighten it or sending it in for repair.
If not refit backup battery and main battery and cross fingers..:)
best of luck
