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.

Cannon s5is powershot as soon as i turn camera on a memory card error comes up and theres no card in it, does same thing when card inserted. it's got to be something in the camera slot, is there a lock in...


On the SD card there is a little switch you can move. It has 2 positions, LOCKED, and UNLOCKED. To make the card available, put the switch in the UNLOCKED position.
Here is an example-

If that doesn't work, try putting the card into a memory card reader, like on your PC or a special USB attachment. If the memory card is recognized, then it might be a problem with your camera.

Tip

Memory card locked


This is a tip explaining the error, "Memory card locked". We will also give you the resolution for this error. This error, or rather message, is usually the result of the following situations.

Situation 1:

Well, this is usually the problem, on the memory card, there is a little switch on the left side, which can switch between "Lock" or "Unlock".

If you get the display, memory card locked, remove the card from your camera, or USB adapter and have a look at the switch, if it is switched to locked, move the lever top the other side and place it back. This should solve your problem, if not, lets have a look at situation 2.




Situation 2:

Open the card slot of your camera and have a look inside with a bright light/ torch. You should see a little metal tab or switch inside the card slot. This is the write protection switch.

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.


I really hope this can steer you in the right direction. Please rate accordingly.

Kind regards

I've put in 2 new memory cards and when i turn on the camera I get a message: "memory card is locked"


SD type cards have a little switch on the card that can write protect or "lock" it. Take the card out of the camera and check this switch. To unlock it, it should be moved towards the edge of the card which has the electrical contacts.

Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

Check your card, there is a little switch on the side of the card. One side says locked and the other side says unlocked. Move the switch to unlocked and put it back in and try it again.

Memory card problem


Hi and welcome to FixYa.

I'm not sure about your particular instance, but this can happen if you change up cameras or use a card reader.

As for being unable read the memory card, sometimes the card can be switched off by accident. Turn off the camera and remove the card. Look at the side of the card and there will be a little switch. One end says locked (or shows a little picture of a locked lock) and the other end says unlocked (or, shows a little picture of an unlocked lock). Just move the switch to unlocked.
Try that, and let me know with a comment if that doesn't work, othewise, thanks for coming to FixYa!
