Having problems with your Pentax Optio 60 Digital Camera ?

When ever I turn on the camera, the display shows "card locked". I can hit the > button and it appears to unlock it, since pictures now show up. But, whenever I try to do anything else it locks back up again. How do I fix this problem? This is for a Pentax Optio S60 digital camera.

Answers :

Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Card Locked! It is definitely NOT the lock tab. This is my sisters camera. She has used this card for a while. She took it out to try out a card I gave her and when she put the original back in the camera, it says "Card Locked!" whenever anything that would alter its contents is attempted. I have tested this card in my own camera and it works and I tried my card in her camera and that works. Why is this one card suddenly showing up to this one camera as locked?

The best solution is to get all the data off of the card then remove the card ... its easier to just replace the card.....but you can try to fix it your self if u think u can simply take a pair of pliers and remove the tab make sure that the sl ... Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera

Connection Problem My Olympus D-560 would lock when I tried to connect it to my PC, a Compaq Presario 6000 about a year old. Since the camera was brand new, I suspected the computer and spent many frustrating hours uninstalling this and reinstalling that. Finally, I sent the camera back and Olympus did a firmware upgrade, which fixed the problem. Then I stumbled across a post on another board that said that the Oly has problems with AMD processors.

I was shooting pictures with my camera at a concert. I used the zoom feture to zoom in, and it caused a zoom error in the camera. I turned the camera off to reboot it, but the lens stayed out. When I tried to turn the camera back on, the camera came on, but the screen went black. I tried taking the battery out, and put it back in some time later (maybe 30 min.-1 hr.). This did not fix the problem, and I don't know what else to do. How do I fix this?

I have a samsung L200 digital camera. It was working fine until my 2 year old little girl decided she needed to play with it. Not sure if she done something or not but now the camera will not work.

I have a stylus 5010 - some how the camera is hung up it says "write protect" when I turn it on and when I try to use it.

Not focusing I'm in the process of attempting to help my friend fix his DMC-FX9 camera. The problem is that it doesn't tend to focus on ANYTHING. It will focus if you zoom in [about halfway)or use macro, but it won't focus if it's not zoomed in. I tried changing the focusing modes, the photo modes. I don't know what else to do, has anyone else run into this problem? He's had the camera for to long to return it, so I'm hoping that I can help him make it usable again.

Won't work Have a C875 for a year now, and it has been working just fine. The other day I decided to try a AC adapter on it. Well, the AC adapter I used is one of those variable voltage ones. I set the voltage for 3 volts, plugged it in, it doesn't work. O.K. I put the batteries back in, still don't work. And, to top it off, the batteries get hot. Took the camera apart and I don't see anything burned up. Lost. Any help on what the solution could be and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.
