    Casio EX-Z89 camera. When I turn it on it says "The card is locked." I bought a new memory card thinking the old one was spent. New memory card - same message. Any ideas? thanks.

Sounds like the 'lock' tab on the memory card has been moved to the 'safety' to prevent you from re-writing your card accidentally

Fix it by:
1 remove memory card from camera
2 look for the very little tab/switch on the front of the card
3 slide it to the unlocked position (opposite of now)
4 put it back into camera...should now allow you to take pictures

if the tab/switch is missing do not dispair...
-use a small piece of clear tape to cover this 'tab/switch' opening

-this is the same concept as cassette/vhs/ 5 1/4" floppies...removing the 'tab' to lock it

MEMORY CARD LOCKED


All SD cards I have ever seen can be locked with a little slide on the left side as you face the label. if the slide is up, the card is unlocked and can be used for taking pictures. If the slide is down, it is in the locked position, which prevents it from overwriting anything that is currently on the card. Before you unlock it you may want to verify that all pictures on the card (if any) have been saved because once you start using the card and overwriting its contents, the pictures are gone forever. If the card is empty, just unlock it, format it and start taking pictures.

After locking memory card, do I then unlock it to take pictures and will that then erase the memory card or can you tell me how to so


Locking the memory card prevents you from taking and adding photos to the memory card. It also prevents you from deleting photos from the memory card.
If you want to erase all the photos off the memory card. unlock the memory card, go to the camera's Menu and scroll through the settings ti Format the memory card, then format the memory card.

If the memory card is a SD memory card then
SD and Mini SD memory cards has a small slide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memory card or add photos to the SD card. Slide the switch from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position, which is furthest away from the contacts.

My memory card is locked am not given lock number how to remove lock 2gb micro


Look closely at the memory card itself. There should be a tiny picture of a lock indicator on the card and a little tab to click or move to the lock position. There should also be a picture of an unlocked lock to signify which direction you need to move that little tab in order to unlock the memory card. Try sliding it to the unlock position to solve your issue.
