Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Digital Camera ?

My Memory card says it is protected how can I overcome this to take pics please ?



Answers :

Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. 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.
