There's a very small switch on the side of the card. Slide it over and see if that helps.

Camera reads card lock when trying to take a photo


Since you neglected to specify the make and model of your camera, I'm going to assume it uses SD/SDHC cards.

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.

If your camera uses a SD memory card then -
SD and Micro SD memory cards has a smallslide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memorycard. Slide the switch from the READ position tothe WRITE position, which is furthest away from the contacts.

SD card can't be read "Card Locked" is all that


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Casio exilim Z75 When camera is on screen reads


Sounds as though the sd card release spring has broken (in the camera card slot.) Perhaps a pair of tweezers and a good pull will get it out? The card not the broken side spring. Hope this helps!

Camera screen said SD card is locked when I installed an SD card


The SD card has a lever on the side of it. Move it to the other position.That is to prevent accidental erasing.

HP635 CAMERA, SCREEN SHOWES RED AND READS CARD LOCKED. CAMERA WON'T ERASE OR TAKE PHOTOS


Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

Screen reads SD CARD locked


I have 17 of these cameras and for some reason after a while some of them develop this problem. It is very frustrating but I can usually get them to work by taking disk out, turning on camera, put in auto mode, wait for delay to switch to ready then put card in. I works most of the time and if not turn it off and keep trying. Some kind of glitch in the computer I guess. Hope this helps.

Card format problems


The first thing you will have to check the card. There is slot on the card that contains a switch. This will lock the card so that it is write-protected. This will cause the unsupported card error.

If the card looks fine, try a card reader just to confirm that the card has not been corrupted.

If the card is functional and you can read its contents from the PC or another SD-slot device, then the issue is your camera. The slot contains thin copper prongs that comes in contact the copper surface on the back of the SD card. If the prongs are bent or damage, then the camera cannot read your card.
