SCREEN SAYS WRITE PROTECT - Olympus Stylus 710 Digital Camera


Answers :

A few things here, first have you just downloaded your pictures to your computer? If so then remove the memory card from the camera and make sure the little "lock" switch on the side of the upper left corner is in the unlock position. Unlock position is with this slide type switch pushed towards the top or the gold contacts. The you insert the XD card back into the slot making sure not to move teh little switch. The close the compartment turn on the camera and go directly to your menu and format the card. If this was a new card then it needs to be formatted, if this card has just had pictures downloaded to the computer then it needs formatting. There are a number of reasons for card error messages but most if not all can be solved by formatting the card

Hi.. My Olympus Stylus 710 camera is one year old and I have been having problems with it recently. Basically the camera is unusable right now. When i press the power, the lens open halfway, the picture on the LCD is blurry and one second after the lens close and an error appears of the screen saying "D: 5f08 5f0e 5f08 5e02". Can you help me fix this problem? Sending the camera back to Olympus to fix will cost a bundle and where I live, no one fixes digital cameras.

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
