I have 17 of these cameras and for some reason after a while some of them develop this problem. It is very frustrating but I can usually get them to work by taking disk out, turning on camera, put in auto mode, wait for delay to switch to ready then put card in. I works most of the time and if not turn it off and keep trying. Some kind of glitch in the computer I guess. Hope this helps.

Why does My Panasonic SD 90 says No Card even when an SD card is inserted and the flap closed?


Check that the SD cards are compatible with your camera. Some older cameras can't read newer, large capacity cards. If that's not it also check the pins within the camera using a strong light and magnifier to make sure they're clean and not bent.

I have a Casio Exilim EX-Z80A and it shows that the SD card is locked. I tried sliding the thing on the side of the card, but nothing. I even put in a different card, but it still shows Card Locked! Please...


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out (note 2GB or less standard SD cards. These are very inexpensive these days, and are available on Amazon if your local store no longer carries them). There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here.

Could be the locking switch inside the camera itself. Sometimes they get jammed, but can easily be reopened by prodding/pushing on (from the outside) with a toothpick. See this link.

SD card can't be read "Card Locked" is all that


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Camera reads communication error when trying to upload photos what might be the prob


I BELIEVE THE REASON IS THE TYPE OF SD CARD.
THERE ARE SD AND SDHC. IF YOU ARE USING SDHC.
I BET THE ONE CARD THAT DOESNT READ IS AN HC. THIS IS ALSO TRUE WITH OLDER CARD READERS. I HAVE AN OLDER AND NEWER CARD READER.
I JUST HAPPENED TO PUT AN OLDER SD CARD IN MY NEW POWERSHOT SD1300 AND IT READS FINE, ALL NEW CARDS SDHC WONT READ.
I BELIEVE SD IS UP TO 2GIGS AND SDHC IS 4GIGS AND HIGHER.

Did you know that there is a lock lever on the inside of the card slot? You can try to move it using a toothpick.

Camera says card is locked but it's not!!!


You already know about the 'lock' switch on SD cards; did you know it doesnt actually lock the SD card by itself? It merely pushes a switch lever in the reader (in this case, your camera), that in turn tells the electronics to NOT write on the SD card.

So, if your SD cards are indeed working (check on a card reader), it would look like the lever in the camera that senses the position of the lock switch is jammed / bent. If you could pry into the card slot in the camera, and try to shake this lever with a long narrow object (a straightened paper clip, perhaps), that might yield good results.

Alternately, look up 'CHDK' on Google; it is an alternate OS that gives your Canon *lots* of other features. In your case, more importantly, it *requires* the SD card to be locked in use. Dont worry, with CHDK booted in, the camera will store pictures even when it sesnses the card is write-protected. So, it not only solves your problem, it gives you loads of extra features like RAW capability, time laps, remote operation and more, all for free.
