My camera when i try to record the display on the LCD comes up" IN CARD POSITION". I have tried changing the selectors to all position but to no avail. Even if my card is not in place the error message occurs. I have tries playing the tape and the same problem comes up.
A properly functioning camcorder will report this if it has both a card for recording and a tape mechanism for recording, with a switch set "in card position" when you press the movie mode record button. If you have a camcorder like this, look for a button marked "photo" that is used specifically for snapping still photos.

The SD card has a little switch on the left side (Lock/Unlock) that provides write protection for the card. The switch is in the Locked position and the camera can't write to the card. Remove the card and move the switch to the unlocked position (towards the contacts on the end you insert into the camera). Then replace the card carefully so that you do not change the position of that switch.
Take the memory card out of teh camcorder and look at it. 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.

Try removing the memory card and move the small locking switch on the side of the card to the opposite position from where it is. That should remove the protection on the SD card and allow it to record etc.
