Wheb you have a SD, SDHC or SDXC memory card and you put the switch to the lock position, the card is protected, That means nothing can change the files that are stored on the card. Not by wiring, not by deleting and not by formatting. Keep the lock with up, towards the golden connection points.
On the picture the 64 GB card is unlocked. `the 32 GB card is locked what does card protected mean? - 8ab871eb-243a-48dd-a8d8-58e5df95d568.jpg

did you put an sd memory card into it? this camera will not take pics without an sd memory card (it did not come with any memory to hold pics on the camera itself). the memory card needs to be inserted into the slot right next to the battery:)

SOURCE: inserted 4 GB memory card.

Take out the card and check that the write protection switch is in the unlocked position. Then reinsert it carefully without moving the switch. (For SD cards, the card is locked when the switch is towards the middle of the card.)

I hope this helps.

Get it off "protected card" mode?


If the card is a Secure Digital (SD), SDHC or SDXC there is a write protect switch on the card which can be slid up and down. Up means it can be written too, down means the card cannot be written too. If the card is in the position where you can write to it but the camera is saying the card is still protected it maybe a faulty card or the camera may have a fault.

I have a panasonic Lumix camera and it keeps telling me my mempry card is locked. How do I unlock it?


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked.
You can see the snap attached below;
n00h_0.gif

If the lock switch is not on lock;
  • Slide the switch up and down. Repeat this 3 times.
  • Let it stay on the Lock position for 30 seconds.
  • Slide the switch up to unlock the card.
  • Try to transfer files into the device.

If none of the above works, then you card in either damaged (Format it) or is Password protected.

If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating and a testimonial will be esteemed.

I'm trying to delete a photo that i had taken and it keeps saying card lock what does this mean and how can i unlock it?


When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock or not protected.

When i turn on my fujifilm camera i get mesage 'protected card' and any button does not work. When i take out the card camera works. How can i fix this


This is usually caused by the SD card, and is nothing to do with the camera. On the SD card there is a small slider - which allows you to lock the card (to prevent accidental erasure).

If you put in on the table with contacts upwards, corner cut top left, then the slider is on the right hand edge, about 1/3 the way down. If it is slid to the top position (nearest the contacts) the card is unlocked. If it is slid down (away from the contacts) the card is locked.

If it is a damaged / "cheap" card, sometimes the slider falls out, in which case the card is locked. You can still read from it, but not write to it until fixed or replaced.

First check is to turn the camera off, remove the card, move the slider to locked, then back to unlocked. Replace in the camera and turn on.

Have you tried the camera with another SD card, to see if the problem persists? (A reputable photo store will often lend you a card for the 20 seconds it takes to do this test)

I had this same problem and as the **** above suggested I read the manual. The problem is not in the camera it was on the memory card. There is a little (yellow in my case) slide button on the side of the memory card itself that you can slide to "Lock". Mine was inadvertantly in the Lock position, once I slid it out of the lock position, the "Card Protected" error no longer occurred on my Fujifilm FinePix Z.
