Make sure all the files from the memory card have been downloaded and saved to the computer. You are going to need to format the memory card to remove the write protect/read only/lock issue. By formatting this will permanently erase all data from the memory card so you are able to use it again.
To format the card: go to Menu - to Submenu - to Format option - Start - then Start again - Press Menu to initiate the process - When done the recorder will be able to be used for recording purposes again.

My camera says my memory card is locked but the button on the side is not locked how do i retrieve my pictures i have a canon powershot a480


Issue: [Memory card locked] message appears on the screen.
Solution: Change the memory card lock switch to the normal setting

The SD card has a lock switch to prevent existing data from being erased. To record images or movies this switch must be in the normal (non lock) position. Different brands of SD memory cards may identify this switch differently. Regardless the procedure should be the same. Please remove the card from the camera and ensure that the switch is not in the locked position. sdcardlocked.jpg

You should be able to retrieve photos, but not writing or erasing if the switch is switched to write protect.

If it's not functioning correctly, the camera may need service at Canonusa.com.

My SGH-T629 came from the U.S. how can i make it capitable with the sim card in the phillipines


A. Turn on phone with full battery and non-T-Mobile SIM in place.
Allow phone to completely boot up to Wrong SIM screen. B. Enter from Wrong SIM Screen *#7465625# to confirm lock status C. Scroll through Interrogate Screen 1. Network lock - Active (this is the one you'll be deactivating)
2. Subset lock - inactive
3. SP lock - inactive
4. CP lock - inactive
5. SIM Card lock - inactive
6. Activa lock - inactive
7. Auto network lock - inactive
8. Auto subset lock - inactive
9. Auto SP lock - inactive
10. Auto CP lock - inactive
11. Auto SIM Card lock - inactive
12. Phone lock - inactive D. Push "C" button under navigation button to clear Interrogate screen back to Wrong SIM
screen E. From the Wrong SIM screen enter the following: *7465625*638*00000000*00000000# Those are two series of eight zeros. The phone will not show the zeros but will show dashes in their place. Phone may make a small tone and at the bottom of the screen it will read "Network Personalized" or perhaps "Network Already Personalized" F. Now input the following from whatever screen shows up: #7465625*638*00000000# (again this is a series of eight zeros) Phone may make small tone and will read "Network Lock Deactivated" G. Turn off phone
H. Re-start the handset and allow it to reboot.
J. Enter from Standby Screen *#7465625# to confirm lock removal status K. Scroll through Interrogate Screen 1. Network lock - inactive (note that this lock is now inactive)
2. Subset lock - inactive
3. SP lock - inactive
4. CP lock - inactive
5. SIM Card lock - inactive
6. Activa lock - inactive
7. Auto network lock - inactive
8. Auto subset lock - inactive
9. Auto SP lock - inactive
10. Auto CP lock - inactive
11. Auto SIM Card lock - inactive
12. Phone lock - inactive
That's it. Your phone is ready to accept SIM cards from just about any GSM mobile telephone service provider in the world. If you received a "wrong password" message you will need to insert a working SIM and reset the password to the default 8 zeroes "00000000". After that you may try this process again and it should work.

Locked file ?


The folder lock can oly be solved by chosing the option "format" in the sub-menu. But please copy the *.dss - files still resting at your card at your harddisk first.

When the recorder finishes the format procedure, all folders will be unlocked again.

The "Read-Only-Failure" will occur again at recorders with differend user profiles, when you put the switched-off recorder into the docking station first and switch the power button to "on". So avoid this constellation!

Had same problem. Found online handbook for DS-4000 and page 37 pointed way.
Press menu button on the handset.Go to sub menu. Page 37 of online handbook suggests you can lock and unlock from this but I used the format icon on the submenu to reformat the card. Seems to be working fine now.

In card position


check the SD card and see if the little tab on the side of it is slid to the position that says "lock" If you cant see the words, try just switching the tab to the other side. Since SD means Secure Digital, these cards wont do anything if the lock tab is not in the right position.
