There should be a tiny slide switch on the side of the card. Merely slide this switch to the other "unlocked" position.

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help:

Your camera uses SD memory cards. On one edge is a slider switch: towards the electrical contacts is the unlocked position and away from them is locked.

Unfortunately, the switch is easy to move accidentally and it's also easy for it to appear to be unlocked when it isn't. Like any mechanical component it's also possible for the switch to fail.

If the switch is in the locked position then slide it fully to the unlocked position; if it's already in the unlocked position, slide it fully to the locked position and then fully back again. There should be a soft click at each end of the switch travel, if not then the switch is definitely faulty or obstructed.

If that fails, then try looking closely at the switch in both positions to ensure that there is no debris obstructing its movement, if not then check the electrical contacts to ensure that they're completely clean and grease-free. Don't touch the contacts with your bare skin, but if the contacts need cleaning then a cotton bud (Q-tip) moistened with a little alcohol or methylated spirits can be used to clean them.

If you still have no fix, then try a different SD card as yours may have an irreparable faulty switch. If the card does prove to be faulty then on most major brands you may be able to return them to the manufacturer for exchange: I've found that they will often do this on a goodwill basis even if the card is out of warranty.

If all options regarding the memory card are unsuccessful, then you have a faulty camera and further remedies require either a professional repair or replacement of the camera.

I hope that my answer has been of use and has given you additional options to fix your problem. Please take a moment to rate my reply.

Can't help with the camera- sounds like it has a fault.

The photos, however, should be recoverable by putting the memory card into a card reader on a computer.

They are probably still there. Get yourself a card reader and use it to download your pics. f1eb652.jpg

When I try to view the most recently taken photos there is a message that says 'card locked' and I can't view recent photos. Please tell me what I need to do to unlock card.


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

there is a locking mechanism on the side of the card, shift it down or up to unlock mode. Your card can also be full and you may need to download some photos and remove them from the card so that you may be able to reuse the card. Otherwise buy a new card

Check the SD card, they have sliders on them which lets you "lock" the card so nothing can be put on or taken off of it. Make sure that is off. Then go through the menu on the camera and try to format the card again. If the card is bad it should give you an error message when it tries otherwise you should be good :)

I can't import photos from memory card to computer


Reformatting will not help you and will lose everything on the card. Furthermore, do not attempt any repairs or data recovery until all other options have been exhausted. Have you tried the card in another Mac? Does a simple drag and drop action to your desktop work, or do you get the same or similar message?

Make sure the computer is hard-rebooted and attempt to import pictures from another card. If it fails, problem with program. If it succeeds, problem with card, but this does not preclude trying the above-listed options.

To view still photos taken from canon dc-210 dvd camcorder


Sounds like you're using the "cine" setting.

Switch the camera on.
Move the "cine / photo" switch (it's just above the joystick) to the "photo" position (i.e. to the right).
Use the joystick to move between images.

Good Luck
