My camera says the my memory card is locked.?? i dont no how to unlock it My Ixus 70 says my card is locked, but the card is NOT locked (button on the side of the card is in unlock position). The came


Oops. The little latch on the side in the unlock position, should engage a switch in the camera, indicating the memory card is not writ protected. It is not an electrical switch doing something in the memory card. But is the switch in the camera is defect, you get the same result. If someone once tried to press in a memory card, the wrong way around, this could have been the cause of a damaged switch. Just check the memory card slot, of nothing is in the cardholder, blocking the little switch from working correct. Sure the switch is in the up position, like in the picture? 25288825-qj532vtjsqner5bmetfl14fj-5-0.png

I hav a Panasonic DMC-Z57, and when I turn it on I get a message, "The memory card is write protected". How do I get rid of this?


Your memory card has a sliding switch along one edge. It is unlocked when it is nearest to the electrical contacts and locked when it is furthest from them. If it is locked then just slide it firmly to the unlocked position. If it appears to be in the unlocked position then slide it fully to the locked position and then fully back to the unlocked position.

If this does not work then try another memory card.

Locked memory card


Hi there,

Your camera is telling you the lock switch on the card is locked.

Take the card out of your camera and look on the side. There will be a little switch. One side of the switch says locked and the other side says unlocked. Move the switch from the locked position to the unlocked position and it will work for you.
