    same, went to get pictures printed , took the card out did my thing put it back .....bingo card locked.
    It may have something to do with the removal from the photo printing machine.
    Also e48 means, something like some grit has jammed the lense , give it a whack on the bench and try again...repeat it works(;-)

Just worked this one out ...there is a small white sliding tab on the side of the sd card.
If you put the card in upside down it will catch the tab and move it..thus locking the card.

Take it out move the tab to the top and re-insert. God I'm dumb ! I love it.
e18 message, this means the lense cannot open properly...6 beeps and she's gone.
There is a small amount of grit caught between the lense and camera preventing it from opening evenly .. a little tap on the bench will release it.
Repeat until clear.
Have a wonderful day, Smithy Australia

SD card is protected, how to unlock SD card


Take your memory card out of the camera and switch the position of the "lock" tab. One position is for "locked" (i.e., "Write Protected") and the other position will allow the card to be written to (unlocked). Some cameras have image protection built into the on-camera software and you may need to configure this there.

SD card locked


The lock switch on the SD card looks like a bit of plastic without any electronics. A bit like the write-protect tab on a 3.5" FDD.
So there must be a sensor in the reader / camera which detects the position of the switch. Maybe there is dirt in the sensor. The best way to check would be to try another SD card, but you could try blowing out any possible dirt and see if that fixes the problem. Can the camera write to the SD card?

Try moving the switch to lock and unlock status.

I CANT UNLOCK THE MEMORY CARD...SO I CANNOT TAKE PICS....


The SETUP menus should allow you to unlock the card. Alternatively, re-formatting will clear the card and start anew, or you can put a new card in (they are cheap)

Digital camera says sim card locked


If this is an SD card you may need to take out the card and slide the small switch on the card itself to the "Unlock Position"

Good Luck!
