If you look at the card, sometimes they have a sliding lock mechanism. This helps to prevent accidental erasing of pics.

I try to take a picture and this comes on the screen write protect.


This is a common problem with SD & SDHC type memory cards - and is easily fixed.

Remove the card from the camera and inspect the edge for a sliding tab and lock indicator.
690144df-2144-46c7-9b90-dd85c207a09b.jpgYou can see the tab & lock indicator on the left side edge in the picture of the front of the card above. Slide the tab UP - away from the lock position - as shown in the picture. The card is now able to be written. When the tab is in the lock position, the card may only be read.

Carefully reinsert the card into the camera - taking effort to see that the tab is not bumped / moved back into the lock position. You should be able to take pictures and have them saved to the card - without the locked message from this point on.

I hope this helps & good luck!

When I try to take a picture comes up on screen card locked. How do I solve this problem. Going to a wedding at weekend and need pictures.


Take a look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Casio exilim 8.1 card is locked


Hi!

Can you check if there is a small push button on the memory card itself? It could that it is currently on write-protect mode.

Camera is not taking out no pictures on display screen marks memory card locked


It sounds like the memory card has its little locking switch in the locked position. Take the card out of the camera and move the small switch on the side of the card to the opposite position. Re-install and you should be good to go.

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