Use these camera care tips: • Store everything together in a case for easy transport. Use a good padded case and strap. Not only do cases protect the camera but, as with most of HP's digital camera cases, they often have built-in pockets for batteries and memory cards. • Use lens caps to protect lenses when you're not using your camera. No exceptions. • Clean your camera and lenses often with a soft cloth. The autofocus, exposure, and viewfinder windows need to be clean for correct operation. Your camera likes weather that’s not too hot and not too cold. Weatherproof your camera with these ideas: • Let your camera case kick back under a light-colored towel when you're under the hot sun. • Keep your camera warm under your coat when it's chilly outside. • Bad weather and stormy seas can make for inspiring photographs. But if you don't take precautions, you'll have a wet digital camera with sand in every crevice. To protect your camera from water, cover it with a plastic bag. Just make a hole for the lens to poke through and secure it with a rubber band. Voil?: a little rain jacket!

Memory card is protected Reset switch on memory care

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.

I dont know how to delete a protected picture off my canon power shot a470 camera. Can you help?

You have to unprotect it first. It's a bit confusing because the menu item probably only says "Protect..." but it also takes care of unprotecting too. Go into the menu for "Protect..." and navigate to the protected one. Whatever button you press to switch the protected status (it's the SET button on my Canon) you can use it to turn the protection off as well. When you exit the protection mode, you can delete it.

What is "write protect" I am unable to delete pictures from my sd card like i have been before while n my ge A735 camera or by placing it in my computer when camera is in playback mode and i go to menu...

Hello. Remove your SD card and look carefully at the edges of it. you will see a little lock which prevents you from deleting any pictures. Just unlock it and reinsert it. Joe

How do i turn off protected card on my camera? i have a sanyo vpc-e1000

If you mean by removing the memory card protection, turn off your camera and take out the memory card. Look for a small tab in the memory card that can be adjusted up or down. Usually, to unprotect, it should be adjusted upwards or if it doesn't adjust it downwards.

Camera sys protected card. how do i get this tooken off

If it is an SD card, there is usually a little slide switch that protect the data on the card from being overwritten or erased.  You will need to slide it to the unlocked position (do it carefully so you don't break it, and avoid touch the metal contacts).
Be sure to power off your camera before removing the card.  If that doesn't work, ensure your batteries are fully charged and try again.
I hope that helps.

Sand in Sony Cybershot DSC-S650

You have a problem.
Sand is very destructive and may make the lens completely unusable, and can lead to broken parts internally. The only way now to fix this camera is to send it to a professional, if Canon, to Canon repair. The lens needs to be completely disassembled and cleaned thoroughly.

Since the lens has extremely small parts, and may not be able to be taken apart and put back together very easily, a repair is the best option here.

As a precaution never take a digital camera in an environment which has sand, or water, especially salt water. If you do, take extra time to put the camera in either a self-zipping locking kind of bag or a padded bag.

If you treat the digital camera with carefulness, and also like you are handling eggs...meaning it can break easily, you will get good service from most any one. It is true, however things happen internally, and can cause problems as well.

Nikon Coolpix 5200 Getting Message ""Memory Card is Write Protected"

Inspect your SD card carefully. Some SD cards come with a write-protect lock switch on the side of the card. When looking at an SD card from the top there is one required notch on the right side (the side with the diagonal notched corner) and on the left side there is usually a switch. This is the write-protect switch. When this write-protect switch is in the down position (away from the end that is inserted) then it is write protected and read-only. When the switch is in the up position it is write enabled.
