It's likely that the locking switch inside the camera's card slot is stuck. If you look inside the slot on the side of the slot where the SD card slide switch would be, you'll see a glint of gold color on the side. This is the camera's lock/unlock switch. The other glint's of gold that you may see at the far end of the slot are the reader's connectors (ignore those).

Somehow, the locking switch is making contact and has become stuck in the locked position. With a plastic toothpick, or other skinny NON-METALLIC item, tap against this switch to see if you can jar open the contact to its normal unlocked position. Also try blowing compressed air at it, as some gunk may have worked its way in there, jamming it closed. Occasionally, reinsert the SD card to see if the issue has been corrected.

If repeated tries fail, it may be time to consider opening the camera to force open this switch (not recommended unless you have some familiarity with electronics). In this case please see the following (xscrewdriver, hope you don't mind me referencing your blog):

What does it mean if internal memory is full? cannot take pictures. changed memory card but still says internal memory is full polaroid t737 digital camera


To get your card to work, you must get rid of the pic's in the internal memory. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. After that, your card should work properly.

Ok so I have the same problem I went out and purchased an SD card...but it doesnt work. So I called Polaroid and you need to purchase a CLASS 6 SD card of 2gb or more for it to work properly...figures it does not say that in the manual.

I bought a canon powershot SD1300 IS camera yesterday. I inserted a 2 GB memory card in to the slot. when i switched on the cam It displays a message no memory card. what should i have to do?


I'm assuming you went through the setup procedures (setting date, time, etc). If you tried to shoot any pics with no card in the camera, you now have pics on the internal memory. You need to get rid of those by going into the menu and finding "format". Then, insert your new card (making sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position) and do the "format" thing again to optimize the new card for the camera.

The specified memory card is either Toshiba or Sandisk. But even with this type of SD card, the polaroid 1532 cam cannot recognize the inserted card. Only 19 pictures can be saved in the internal memory. I...


The trouble is you've used the internal memory and now your camera is set to use it and not your memory card. You must remove your card, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen directions to format the internal memory. Then insert your card and promise never to use the internal memory again.

How do you get rid of card locked message on Polaroid T830?


SD cards have a tiny slide tab on the edge of the card.

This is used to lock the card, so you can't alter the contents.

Slide the tab to unlock the card.
