SD memory cards have a tiny tab on one side of the card to unlock and lock the card.
If that does not work then the card may be faulty, try first removing camera batteries to reset camera, and then replace the card.

Hi try to reset ur camera...To do such reset, turn on the camera and hold the menu button down for longer than 5 seconds. A message should hopefully come up on your LCD asking if you want to reset the camera. Select Yes...

SIM CARD NOT WORKING


I bought a new trac fone, and am trying to transfer things from my old phone. When I turn on the new phone there is a lock on it. I can't find the way to put in the SIM card number. I can't unlock the phone.
I tried pushing the lock, and the space bar. I think it's the space bar. The lock is on the same key.
One of the messages states the sim card is invalid. I did not put in a sim card number, only a serial number. How do I unlock it.

I have a message on my digimax A400 screen stating CARD LOCKED can u help plse?


Look at the 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.

When I turn on the camera an air message states "CARD IS LOCKED"


SD 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.

The card is locked appears on screen when SD card is inserted


Is it possible for you to use some tweezers and adjust the very small lever inside the camera's card bay? It may be stuck thus telling the camera the card is locked.

Memory card error (states memory card locked) not locked


Remove the card and look for a tiny slide switch on the side of the card. Slide this switch to the other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card and try it out.
