Customer Question
I have a Nikon CoolPix...
I have a Nikon CoolPix P530. I somehow have a "protected photo" I am trying to erase. It will not let me. Every time I want to take a picture, I have to wait for this photo to disappear before my shot will take. Can you tell me how to get this off my camera?

There isn't an unprotected button; only protected. I tried to toggle the protect button, but it only took me to the picture that is protected with a "check mark." I had tried this before and also studied the "Quick Start" section before I contacted you.
Camera and Video Technician: Engineer John C., Engineer replied 2 years ago

If you press Protected again, does it remove the check mark?

Have you tried also connecting the memory card to your computer using a USB reader? Click here for an example ===> USB Card Reader <=== Click Here

Please keep me posted!
