•Set the permission of all your Joomla files and folders as per the specification.
•Set the permission of all the folders and files of Media Manager to 755.
•If the problem continues then try to take a database Back-up and make a fresh new installation of Joomla and it's templates and the restore the database.
•contact your hosting provider if the problem still continues. They may set administrative folder/file permission.
