Canon power shot a1000is - displaying "card lock", tried moving slide from one side to other, still did not fix it?


Your camera uses SD cards and these have a very small locking switch on the left side near the top (as you look at it). It very often gets switched to lock without the owner being aware of it. Just slide the the tiny switch up to the top of the slot and your problem should be fixed.
I do not understand what you mean by , "...tried moving slide from one side to the other".

My camera canoon powershot sd850 is saying card locked! I can't seem to find how to unlock it..


Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. SD and SDHC 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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

I cannot get the camera to erase, or delete all imiges. It pops back to protected, or busy. What am I doing wrong? I have erased before with no problem, but not now. I have messed with everything on it I...


Sometimes SD cards have locks on the back of them. I cant say this will fix your problem, but if the memory card is locked it will not allow you to delete the photos. If the photos are on your camera's memory, try playing with the options and see if they are protected for any miscellaneous reason.

The SD card may be locked, a small notch high on the left hand side of the card, moves between lock and unlock.

Hi

It means there it not enough light to take a picture without it being blurry and you should switch the flash on. Try setting the flash to Auto and you should be fine.

Happy shooting from Darntoothysam com (an affordable digital camera repair business)
