Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 8400 Digital Camera ?

My vivicam 8025 wont let me take a picture everytime a try to take a picture it say card protected


Answers :

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.
