Question about Canon Cameras
What kind of card is it? Some different cards have a physical miniswitch on the side. Maybe you moved it by mistake to the 'lock' position when handling it. Also, some cameras have a lever inside the slot where the card fits, this lever locks/unlocks the physical switch I was talking about, and it can sometimes move to an undesired position, namely always locking the card. Look into the slot and try moving gently any lever/protusions.

SD Memory cards have a tiny switch on the edge that marks the memory card as read only and prevents any writes. If you get the message "Card locked!" when you turn the camera on then turn the camera off, eject the SD card. With the card facing you (metal contacts facing away) the switch is on the left hand edge, slide towards the top of the card to make the card read/write again.

SOURCE: Locked memory card
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.

Your camera has a board with the SD card slot board and electronics to record and retrieve images. This board can be replaced and should cost about $100 to repair.
