Question about Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera
I somehow accidentally 'locked' my SD memory card and cannot figure out how to unlock it. I have read the manual but it does not seem to answer the question--any suggestions? Thank you!
I have a Canon A650 that was displaying a "card locked!" message. First, of course, check the lock tab on the card itself. Then, try a different SD card in the same camera. I tried an old 256 MB card from an older camera. I still got the "card locked" message. When I put the 1 GB card I was struggling with in my old Nikon, it read fine. So at this point I knew it was my camera and not the card. What finally worked was very gently pressing down on the metal flap inside the card chamber that detects the lock with the tip of a straightened paperclip. When I turned the camera on again the problem was gone. Hope this helps.
