Get rid of write protect - General Electric A835 Digital Camera


Answers :

Your\012 camera uses SD and SDHC memory cards. On one edge is a slider switch: towards \012the electrical contacts is the unlocked position and away from them is \012locked.

Unfortunately, the switch is easy to move accidentally \012and it's also easy for it to appear to be unlocked when it isn't. Like \012any mechanical component it's also possible for the switch to fail.

If\012 the switch is in the locked position then slide it fully to the \012unlocked position; if it's already in the unlocked position, slide it \012fully to the locked position and then fully back again. There should be a\012 soft click at each end of the switch travel, if not then the switch is \012definitely faulty or obstructed.

If that fails, then try looking \012closely at the switch in both positions to ensure that there is no \012debris obstructing its movement, if not then check the electrical \012contacts to ensure that they're completely clean and grease-free. Don't \012touch the contacts with your bare skin, but if the contacts need \012cleaning then a cotton bud (Q-tip) moistened with a little alcohol or \012methylated spirits can be used to clean them.

If you still have \012no fix, then try a different SD card as yours may have an irreparable \012faulty switch. If the card does prove to be faulty then on most major \012brands you may be able to return them to the manufacturer for exchange: \012I've found that they will often do this on a goodwill basis even if the \012card is out of warranty. Just check the manufacturer's website for support details.

If all options regarding the memory \012card are unsuccessful, then you have a faulty camera and further \012remedies require either a professional repair or replacement of the \012camera.

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.
