Hi I have a Canon Powershot A530 but if I want to take photo's it says card locked?


Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. 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.

How do I print out the date on a picture for a Canon A530?


The date stamp will only work when the camera's resolution is set to postcard mode. Press Func/set, scroll down to the bottom, then across to the icon with the clock and mountain. It will say "postcard". Press Func/set again. Then press Menu, scroll down to "Date stamp" and across to select date or date and time, then press menu again

I try to take photos with Canon powershot A530 but it keeps saying memory card locked. What do I do and what does that mean?


Umm, take out the memory card from the camera and there should be this small lever at the side of the card that shifts up and down. Shift it out of the "locked" mode.

Camera says Card Locked and I can't Reformat the Memory Card


From the problem described by you, it seem your camera has gone into a internal memory error and hung. Try to take out the battery, the memory card etc , clean and then reinsert and then power on? Try this it might work.... Generally the camera should start working normally once you will take out the battery, since it will reset.
If it still does not work, then think you might need to take it to Canon. They are very helpful and could sort out if you have system software problem. But Before that, I suggest that you must take out its memory stick, the battery etc and keep the camera like that for about 15 minutes. Then only reinsert the battery (fully Charged) and then try to reformat the memory card. If you are lucky, you might not need to go to Canon. Best of Luck.

Canon 5d cannot format cf care


Hi there, did you check the card itself? SD cards have a locking switch on the side. Move the switch from locked to unlocked. Put it back in the camera and see if that helps.
