Having problems with your General Electric A835 Digital Camera ?

When i turn on my camera it says...WRITE PROTECT...and wont let me take pictures...what do i do


Answers :

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position nearest the contacts enables writing, the position farthest from the contacts protects the card from writing. If the slide is already in the proper position, try sliding it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try a different card.
