Question about Panasonic NV-GS40 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My Panasonic NV-GS40 continually presents the message CARD LOCKED even though I haven't touched the card slide.Changing to other cards, including newly unwrapped cards, the problem remains - then, very occasionally, the camera allows me to take some pictures as normal and then returns the message CARD LOCKED - and prevents any further photos being taken. Extremely frustrating !!!
I appreciate any help or referral for a solution
Try gently cleaning out the card slot on the camera, in case dust or debris is interfering with the electronic connections.

SOURCE: CARD LOCKED ON PANASONIC NV-GS40
I have exactly the same problem - but very occasionally, it returns to normal, I can take a few pictures then up comes the message 'CARD LOCKED' . I change for different cards and the problem is always the same. Nobody seems to have a solution and Panasonic do not answer any questions about their defective products. I am very disappointed having bought this camera. All my previous cameras were Sony with no problems whatsoever experienced.

SOURCE: I have a nv-gs40 which
-try a power cycle
*remove battery and disconnect from power cord
*i would also suggest to check the tapes if they're clean
*try to clean the tape head inside the tape deck(tape head: the one that reads the tape)
-try using a soft and dry Q-tip to clean the metal parts inside the tape deck(dont use or apply any liquid solutions. just a plain soft dry Q-tip.
