Memory card wont lock in

I try to put my memory card in it's slot but it wont go down all the way and lock in. when i close the lid to where the battery and memory card goes, it goes into place and the camera registers that it is in, however i do not think that this is how it is supposed to be since ive had this camera before; the memory card was able to lock/click into place. any help/advice would be appreciated. Thanks! Sally

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

My memory card won't go down and lock into place. I've tried several different cards. None of them will lock into place

Be carefull, never use force. Check if you don't try to put in the card the wrong way around. Then check if nothing is damaged inside the memory slot. You need a bright light and perhaps a magnifying glass, because everything is very small. Compare the memory slot with a memory slot from another camera. Watch how the little knobs on the side look. I don't mean the contacts. When the contacts are bent, there is a possibility someone once pressed a memory card in the wrong way around and damaged the contacts and knob to secure the card.

Memory Card Slot Not letting it insert fully, seat, lock in place

It may be that you are trying to put it in backwards. It can go in only one way, contacts first. The last bit in "is" spring loaded so it will take a "little" force. If it truly will no go down pull it out, spin it 180 degrees and try installing it again.

My vivitarN1659 will not reconize a1gb memory card and either states that the memory is full or that the memory is locked

There should be a tiny lever on the side of the memory card. Unlock the card by pushing the lever up. If it still says memory card is full, take out the battery and push the memory card further into the slot. It should not move while it is in the slot. If it "floats" when you close the battery door, it is not down far enough into the slot. Return the battery and close the door.
