I AM INCLUDING A LINK TO A COMPANY THAT OFFERS ADVICE AND REPAIR FOR YOUR CAMERA. THIS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM AND THE CARD IS PROBABLY CAUGHT IN THE LOCKING MECHANISM OF THE CAMERA. FORCING IT MAY DAMAGE THE CAMERA. WHILE I CAN NOT ENDORSE ANY FIRM, I RECOGNIZE THIS FIRM AS OFFERING SERVICE AND FREE ESTIMATES ON REPAIRS. I WOULD TRY THIS FIRST. IF YOU NEED MOR HELP, REPLY TO ARCLIGHT 1217. IF THIS IS HELPFUL, PLEASE RATE. THANKS!

Memory card will not release does contact portion (metal face the back of the camera)?


Yes it does face the back of the camera. Try this: turn the camera over so that the battery/card slot door is facing to the right. When you open the door you should see the batteries first then the slot for your sd card. If you insert the card into the slot from this position the card label should be facing you with the notch in the card facing to the left, this should be how you insert your card. I believe it is on Page 15 of your instruction manual.

If the card is facing with the contacts towards you then it is inserted incorrectly. If you have inserted it correctly then the card is spring loaded so gently push down on the sd card and it should pop up if it doesn't then it is jammed.

If it is jammed you can try to remove it yourself with a pair of needle nose tweezers or you might just have to send it off to canon service center or your local repair/camera shop to remove the card and hope that you have not damaged the camera itself.

MY MEMORY CARD WILL NOT LOCK INTO PLACE WHEN I PUSH IT INTO SD SLOT


  • Most likely the SD card is not being pushed in far enough to lock into place. You really need to use your fingernail to push it in past flush until you hear a clicking sound, at which point the card will lock into place.
  • Here are full instructions for insertion and removal of the SD card: Insert the memory card with the metal contacts going into the slot first and facing up at you. In other words the SD card label should be upside down when you insert it this way. You need to push the card in past flush to have the spring mechanism lock the card into place. To get the card out of the slot, push the card in past flush and then the spring mechanism will release it. You will hear a click when the card locks into place or is released from the slot.

    After inserted A new batteries in the screen shows card locked how I can fix that


    There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of 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.

    AFTER INSERTED A NEW BATTERIES IN THE SCREEN SHOWS CARD LOCKED, HOW I CAN FIX THAT


    Try taking out your batteries and then taking out your memory card. In memory card you can see a small button at the side you need to slide that to unlock your memory card. Put back in batteries and memory card. Turn on camera.

    If this works, just put back in your memory card and try again. Sometimes the memory card hangs and you need to pop it in and out.

    I have a canon powershot sx110is and when i turn it on it will not take any pictures but instead gives the message "memory card error." When I put it to the display mode it says the same message plus...


    First see if the camera will work without the memory card installed. Then format the internal memory using the camera's setting as described in the manual.

    Then turn OFF the camera and insert the sd card. Turn on and reformat the card too.

    Make sure you have NEW batteries or sometimes things go flakey.

    Canon power shot sx 100 reads card locked


    SD Memory cards have a tiny switch on the edge that marks the memory card as read only and prevents any writes. If you get the message "Card locked!" when you turn the camera on then turn the camera off, eject the SD card. With the card facing you (metal contacts facing away) the switch is on the left hand edge, slide towards the top of the card to make the card read/write again.

    I can't get my memory card in...?


    The Olympus Camedia D-540 takes an xD-Picture Card. With the camera facing away from you and the card slot to your right, hold the card so that the notch is at the top and the contact area is facing you.

    • Insert the card while keeping it straight.
    • The card stops with a click when it is inserted all the way.
    • Inserting the card the wrong way or at an angle could damage the contact area or cause the card to jam.
    • If the card is not inserted all the way, data may not be written to the card.
