Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Protection fault appears unable to record. - Digital Cameras

Answers :

You didn't specify the make and model camera, so I'll assume it uses SD and/or SDHC cards.

SD and SDHC 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.

Hi, I have a panasonic Lumix, DMC-FS5 digital camera. When I turn the camera on and it's on 'photograph' mode, a message keeps appearing after a couple of seconds saying: "please turn camera off and then on again". I get the same message everytime and am unable to take any photos or even access the menu options. There are no problems when the mode is set to 'playback' mode. The images are still there and I can scroll through, as well as access the menu.

My canon EOS 100D digital SLR is saying 'card write protected' when ever I turn it on. It just started to appear on my screen for no apparent reason one day and it won't let me take pictures anymore. It's not the card it's the camera, I have tried sliding the switch on the side of the memory card and even tried new cards in my camera but it happens with every card I insert. I have googled the problem and can't find any solution to fix the problem. Would be very grateful if you could help at all

I loaded a Mini Digital Camera (3 functions) into my computer with your CD (included) on 4/13/08. Afterwards, I tried to go on-line using my Mozilla Firefox and it wouldn't connect.

Underneath shows arrows left and right. I uninstalled the mini camera from my computer, but I'm still unable to correct this problem. Ne

Dust Orbs I am having serious problems with "Dust Orbs" appearing in pictures. Mostly indoor pictures. These things are ruining my pictures. Are they caused by the Infrared Beam that the camera uses to focus? Or is something else wrong with my camera? Do ALL digital cameras have this problem with dust? Do DSLR have same problem? How come these dust orbs only appear with Digital Cameras, and not film? I need a digital camera that works indoors. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance....

Many digital cameras have this problem, though it has nothing to do with the camera being digital. It is small specks of dust in the air being illuminated. You will never see this problem without a flash.\015\012\015\012The reason you see it on digit ... Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera
