Re: smart card

Can it be reapired? Doubt it Smart Card is old tech now. Check the Nikon site - but new camera looms I think

I have a camera that carries a 1GB SD and when it is inserted in the camers the camera says the card is locked, but the switch on the side of the card shows it is not locked. what can I do?

Spray dry air or contact cleaner into card slot to remove any card in and out several times should have a push-push action...pushing in card should slightly spring back...push again card should pop out a little.
Sounds like latch that catches and holds card is broke or stuck...hope it's stuck!

Have a Nikon D70, tried to load the memory card into the slot, and the grey button doesn't pop out when the card is put in the slot....the card wont go the whole way in

If there is nothing obstructing the slot, and you are inserting the card correctly, check the sides of the memory card to see if they are not damaged.

Flash card will not stay in it's proper spot.

That means either the lock inside the slot of the canon broke or the latch on the flash card is worn out. Can you try another card and see if it locks in.?

Sd card locked

Don't worry guys if you can change the tire on yout car you can fix the SD CARD LOCKED PROBLEM.
You will need a set of mini phillips screwdrivers (everyone has a set in there box)
Open camera door note the tiny scews I think 4~5 of them also two screws that hold the back-up watch battery. remove all of them.
there are more screw inside just take your time and find them.
Carefully lift out the guts and you will see a set of contacts along the side of the SD CARD SLOT.
You can slide your sd card in and out of the slot and note that the contact point open and close.
the reason your card reads LOCKED is because the contact points are dirty I used fine sandpaper
to clean them up after I done this the camera worked perfectly again. The whole job took all of 15 min to preform.

Memory card wont lock in

its because the spring whick locks the memory card has some fault thus it will lock only if given a force which keeps it in place thus the battery cover is providing that force and this can be left as such no problem will be there and can be rectified by visiting an auth. technician and repairing it

Why does my lens close automatically after i turn on my Olympus Digital Camera D-500???

Only thing I can suggest is to try different batteries again. maybe something more generic, regular aa's. also note that the d-500 can use only mem cards that go up to 16 mb, 32 if you do an upgrade. If you're trying to use a newer card that might be the reason. Good luck
