Check to see if any of the little pins that make contact with the card may be damaged, bent, broken or dirty. If you shine a light in there you should be able to count them. compare to the slot in a different camera where you know it works. If it's only bent out of shape you might be able to bend it back, but it would probably void any guarantee you might have left.

Canon PowerShot SD400 No memory card message, but there is a memory card installed. Tried multiple memory cards and got the same message. Made sure the memory card was locked.


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. By the way, if you're using 4GB or larger SDHC cards, they won't work with the SD400 as that camera was made before SDHC came out. Consider 2GB or less standard SD cards only. They're very inexpensive these days on Amazon..

Deb,
A couple of things you might want to try the little lock on the side of the memory card should be in the unlock position. If you are still getting the error message then shut off the camera and remove the battery and the memory card. Insert the battery after about ten seconds should and install the memory card then turn the camera back on. Format the card in the camera NEVER format the card in your computer, format the card over deleting single images. If this camera is new, new then you should have the instruction manual or may be called the owners manual look for formatting instructions, every digital camera has a format feature to clean the memory card. Now if all this still doesn't work you may need to update your camera software. My Canon Pro camera gave me a headache when I went from a 4 gig to an 8gig card it just wouldn't acknowledge I even had a card in the slot. However you may just need to hard boot it after switching the memory card to the unlock position. Don't forget to format the card. Robert

Samsung SL620 - - "Card Locked" message


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.

My digital camara will not save pictures. Messages appear.


If you are using SD memory card, it can be locked. Take out your memory card, on the left side there's a switch. Turn switch up and try again. Hope this will work.

Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

"Memory card is locked


This error message means that the memory card is write-protected. To take a picture, turn off the camera. Then insert a new card or change the storage location to internal memory.
