Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

After taking several pictures and showing them on my big screen TV. I put the card back into the camera. Now it says "card locked" and I can't take any pictures. Its a PowerShotA710


There is a little toggle switch on the flash card that will write-protect the card, very similar the the little switch on the 3.5" floppy disks from way back when. Just switch to the other position, and the camera should be able to write to the card.
Good luck.

Find the flash memory card that plugs into your camera and stores the pictures. It's usually behind a door or flap on the side or bottom. Remove the card, usually accomplished by pushing it in and then it should spring outward slightly -- at least enough for you to pull it out the rest of the way. Check the card for a tiny sliding tab on the side and move it to the opposite end of its travel. See this wikipedia article for pictures and more info about write-protection.

I can't take a picture. it says "Protected Card"


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. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

When my camera is turned on, "write protect" comes on the screen, so I cannot take pictures. How do I get rid of "write Protect?"


You didn't specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm going to assume it uses SD and/or SDHC cards.
