SD/SDHC 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.

Try taking the card out of the camera and clicking the side of the card - there may be a little gap on one side of the card or a small button that you can slide up and down and then reinsert your card.

pg 17 at the bottom shows how to unlock the card, but it is simple, take out the memory card and on the side of it will be a little tab which can slide, slide it off the lock position and it should work

SOURCE: keep getting card locked on my display screen

Hi there.
.
Face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab down, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg .

Please post back if you need any additional advice.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

SOURCE: How to unlock card in pentax optio Says Card

Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

When ever I turn on the camera, the display shows "card locked". I can hit the > button and it appears to unlock it, since pictures now show up. But, whenever I try to do anything else it locks back...

I cant get my pentax optio M20 unlocked


Do you have an SD card? If so you need to remove the card from the camera and look closely at the front of the card. You will see there is the little grey tab slider button on the left side. If it is pushed down into the locked position then you'll need to slide it up to unlock it. Then place the SD card back into your camera and all should be well..... Good Luck and Hope this helps you!
