Look at your memory card. SD 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.

SOURCE: Nikon D40 Memory Card Error

Hello. Make sure the write-protect switch on the SD card is in the UP (nearer to the contacts) position. Try the card in an SDHC capable reader on your computer first. Note that the SD card can only be inserted one way - make sure you're not putting it in upside-down! If the computer recognizes the presence of inserted card (whether it can read it or not), format it at FAT32. When finished, remove properly (icon in system tray) and insert into your D40 slot, WITH THE CAMERA OFF!! Turn on the D40, and if it now recognizes the SD card, FORMAT it again, in the camera. Good luck.

SOURCE: cant take photos and the LCD screen says "Memory card is locked. Slide lock to 'write' position"

I don't own this camera but My guess is your memory card is in a LOCK SETTING you need to move the memory card to unlocked " wrirte " so you memory card isn't locked.....
Step 1 remove the card from you're camera
Step 2 there is a small little side on the side of the memory chip move that to the unlock position.
step 3 insert the card and start shooting!

SOURCE: Camera is saying "Memory card is locked. Slide lock to "write" position."

If you remove the card from the camera, there is a little switch on the SD Card. There is typically a label that shows which direction is locked. If not, switch it to the opposite side. This should solve the problem. Otherwise, there could be a problem with your card. I hope this solves the problem.

The problem is Memory card is locked. Slide lock to "Write" position. I have my card in the Write Position only eventhough it is showing the same


Hi there fellow Nikon user, I understand that you're having issues with your memory card. You mentioned that you already put on the unlock/write position but you;re getting the same error message. There's a big possibility that the card's locking mechanism is damaged. I suggest that you try a different memory card to isolate the problem. If inserting the other card doesn't fix the problem, Then most likely it's the card slot itself that is already busted. Have it checked right away by an authorized Nikon technician.
However if the other card was accepted and you're able to write info with it, then we can conclude that the memory that you're having problems with should be replaced.

Hope this help. Cheers!

When I put into my camers Nikon D40 IT SAYS IT IS LOCKED?


I sure hope you mean an SD or an SDHC card, since the D40 doesn't take CF cards.

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

It says memory card is locked slide into write positon?


SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
