I have a pentax optio E40 camera. The screen reads card locked and I cant get it open

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
If this doesn't do it, try a different card.

How do you delete the photo that shows up on the start up/welcome screen?

Sometimes they (the manufactures) pack to much stuff in these cameras. Also I thought it simpler if I just did a screen shot so you could read it from the manual as I'm sure I wouldn't be able to explain this sequence well enough. What it looks like to me though is you can take a picture of something you want and use that picture as your start up screen. It also tells me you can change this when you want. Her is a link to a PDF manual for your camera.

And here is a picture of how to go about changing the start up screen, I've made it as big as FixYa will allow.

Have fun with your camera Robert in Canada
