SOURCE: samsung digimax4010 memorycard locked cant take pictures

To fix this, remove the SD card from your camera. Look on the side and you will find a little switch. One end of the switch says locked the other end says unlocked. Move the switch from locked to unlocked. Replace it in your camera and turn it back on.

Thanks for coming to FixYa and fee free to rate my solution.

SOURCE: Camera or cell problem??

A tv remote needs an extremely low amount of power. In fact, many people save the batteries from other devices when they stop working and place them in their remotes. Questions to ask yourself...are the batteries old?....have they been recharged many, many times?...have I accidentally allowed them to completely discharge?...have I cleaned the battery contacts in the camera and the batteries themselves with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol?

The problem you describe is frequently battery related. Make sure that you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full battery power from flowing into the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

SOURCE: it is showing card locked

"card locked" usually means the slide switch on the side of the card is in the wrong position.

Why does it keep saying memory full after I have only taken 6 pictures


You need to go to the store and buy Samsung S730 A-DATA 4GB SDHC Memory Card (Class 4)
It is worth about 8-20$. The memory card is used to save pictures. Here is an example: http://www.cellularfactory.com/camera/SAMSUNG/3/46100/

It comes up on camera that card is locked


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.

I have a Samsung S730 digital camera and like it very much. I have a 1GB SD memory card and it works great, but I want to purchase another memory card, but the only SELL 2GB SD cards is that ok to use in...


Hi

The Samsung S730 digital camera will work with 2Gb Secure Digital (SD) cards without an issue. If you want to go with a higher capacity card you can also use 4Gb and 8Gb SDHC cards.

Hope this helps

Digimax Software?


If it isn't too far out of your means, I don't use the software for my camera. I use a card reader. You can find a card reader for about $10 - $15 in most stores that will read 7 or more types of cards. I use my own photo software. Only accessed the disk for the pdf manual. My laptop has a built in card reader. You may be able to find a solution by letting your computer search for a driver on Microsofts site. Mine was automatically recognized on win xp. Hope this helps.
