Having problems with your Olympus MJU 400 Digital Camera ?

Write protect message appears on screen

\015 The above message suddenly appeared on the camera screen of my 2 year old Olympus mju 700 digital camera. I can still view pictures previously taken but I'm no longer able to take pictures as the message seems to block the camera?\015

Answers :

Sounds as if the memory card may be corrupted. In order to remove the write protect, make sure you have downloaded and saved all of the images from the memory card to your computer and then having the card in the camera you will need to run the format option and this will permanently remove the write protect as well as all of the images from the card.
\015\012The card should be able to be used again after the write protect is removed.
I saved all my pictures then re-formatted the camera (which would have cancelled all saved pictures) simply by going into the menu, choosing setup, then format. This also got rid of the "write protect" message which previously blocked the camera. The camera seems to be now working perfectly
