Thats exactly how to unlock it.. make sure the switch is on the position closer to the connectors on the bottom of the card, the other position says lock.

Hi

there should be a little switch on the side of the memory card to lock and unlock it.

Keep us posted.

It says my card is locked, how do i find the password and fix it?


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

Card locked


Hi,
An SD memory card usually has a little white slider on the outside of it. I says in small letter, with a little arrow "LOCK" . Push the slider in the opposite direction of the arrow i.e. to unlock it.
If this is the case, then the camera should be able to communicate and write to the card.
There is also the possibility that the device in the camera which detects this slider is damaged. In that case the camera should be repaired. I think, though you will be OK moving the slider.

There is also the possibility that the card is corrupted. See the Link below

I hope this has helped you.

Locked card


Hello

Ok, here is something you can try:

In your case the problem is not with the card but rather with your camera's card reader. This is a rather hard problem to fix yourself but here is what you can do.

Open the card slot of your camera and peer inside with a sharp light or torch. You should see a little metal tab or switch inside the card slot. This is the write protection switch. Contrary to popular belief , the switch on the card does not impact the operation of the card itself but rather tells the camera that the card should be locked by depressing the little pin inside.

If you put a protected card into a camera with no protection switch , the card would operate normally.

However , with time and repeated use , the switch will start to bend slightly until it will no longer depress when a unlocked card is inserted.

With a toothpick or needle , slightly and very gently push this tab up a little bit. (some camera's will require you to pull the tab down), This will allow the switch to operate once again and should solve your problem.

Kind Regards
Andrea

Memory card locked


Use the camera to try to format the card. If this doesn't work use a computer to format the card. efore the camera can use the card, format the card in the camera. If this doesn't work, gently slide the lock back and forth several times and try this again. If this doesn't work, see if your friend can format it in his camera. If he can, then try formating it in your camera. At some point it will either work or it is compromised (toast).
