Memory card will not lock in place on camera

My camera has developed the annoying habit of not locking the flash memory card in place in the card compartment. The result is that the connections on the card do not align with those on the camera and now saving shots is problematical. In an attempt to gain access to see what the problem is, I tried removing the 6 screws holding the camera back to the front chassis but there seems to be an additional, hidden mechanism which prevents the front and back parts of the body from separating along the top joint. If anyone can a) help me gain access, or b) knows how to fix the problem, then I would be eternally grateful for their advice.

Well even if u get inside probably u will not be able to fix it because it´s pretty normal for the xD socket to brake and needs to replaced. anyway after u remove all the screws just pull it hard, because sometimes the cover is glued to the mainboard, the socket is on the mainboard, be careful once u open it can have loose parts from the xD socket, if u can get it t work, after just glue all that because it brakes a lot, don´t use 3 sec one because will damage the socket.... if it´s under warranty just send to the repair centre they will fix it for free....

My memory card won't lock in place therefore I get a "no memory" card message.


Unfortunately it sounds like the locking clip inside the SD card slot is broken or some how stuck? If you can try to look inside the SD card slot in the camera with a flash light, there should be a small clip like plastic to the left sticking out. That is what locks the SD card in place. See if anything is stuck in between like debris, you might gently poke that clip and see if it is stuck? That is what locks the SD card in place, if it is broken or missing, that will require some work to replace the plastic lock.

Memory card is write protected


SD 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.

If your camera is the type that uses SD cards, then your problem is that the camera was developed in 2004 before SDHC cards were invented. Your camera cannot use them.

The camra works fine until i put in the memory card,when i put in the card it pops up E53 and wont do anything-to get that off i have to take out the card and batteries and its fine again-what do i do?


Without knowing the camera make and model I can only suggest you check your owners manual on how to format your memory card, your manual may also call it initialize.
I'm also going to include a diagram that shows the SD sliding lock, if this lock is in the lock position a whole sea of problems can "pop" up. the lock function is there top protect pictures or files on the card from being deleted by mistake. However sometimes these annoying little trouble makers get pulled down into the lock position.
Here is the diagram. Remember check the lock and then format/initialize your memory card also after each time you download your images from the camera or the optional card reader you must format the memory card to have the camera properly function with the memory card.

My camera is locking my memory card. I slide the lever on the memory card to unlocked, which is down, and when i insert it in the phone and push it down to lock it in, it pushes the 'lock' on the memory...


I have had a similar problem with flimsy lock tabs. I solved it by placing a small amount of scotch tape over the tab - starting near the connection pads, over the tab to the back edge of the card. There's usually not a whole lot of extra room in the slot, so insert carefully and remove portions of tape as needed.

Worst case scenario - if you never use the locking tab (I never do) you could place a small dab of super glue to hold it in place. Let it "set up" before reinserting - you don't want the tab to move an be held on the lock position.

Locked Memory Card


I use a Nikon D300 and have Sandisk Compact Flash memory cards. i ahve not come across this problem but would suggest that you insert the memory card into your camera and reformat the memory card. This should clear any errors in the system BUT IT WILL ALSO WIPE ANY PHOTOGRAPHS YOU AHVE TAKEN when formating the memory card.

Card lock


Dear geogie:

If your camera gives you "card locked" error messages with several cards and you KNOW that the cards are indeed not locked via the sliding lock mechanism, then your camera needs to be sent in for service as it has developed and electrical communications problem within the memory card control function.

I would first however try a hard reset by resetting your camera to the default settings, removing the battery and memory card for two minutes, and then replacing them. Retest the cards for the error message. If it still occurs then call 1-800-828-8080 for your options.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

Memory card wont lock in


its because the spring whick locks the memory card has some fault thus it will lock only if given a force which keeps it in place thus the battery cover is providing that force and this can be left as such no problem will be there and can be rectified by visiting an auth. technician and repairing it
