Re: card locked

Take out your memory card and there should be a little knob
on the side of it, and the knob is probally beside the word Lock
move the knob up and it should be working fine.

Camera screen says card is locked why?

Look at your memory card.SD and SDHC 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.

Canon SD1300 memory card locked

There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. But, if you've checked the slide switch, the internal switch in the card slot may be jammed by a grain of sand or gunk. Here are troubleshooting steps for this problem. Recommend the toothpick fix for your particular problem.

My camera says "card locked"


Remove the memory card and you will find a switch on the left side of the card. It must be locked, so slide or push the lock on other side to open it and then insert the card back to the Camera.

Locked memory card

Hi there,

Your camera is telling you the lock switch on the card is locked.

Take the card out of your camera and look on the side. There will be a little switch. One side of the switch says locked and the other side says unlocked. Move the switch from the locked position to the unlocked position and it will work for you.

Camera no longer working

Your memory card must have had the switch moved from locked to unlocked. To fix this, removed the SD card from your camera. Look on the side and you will find a little switch. One end of the switch says locked the other end says locked. Move the switch from locked to unlocked. Replace it in your camera and turn it back on. Try it and let me know if I can help more.

Camera Locked

Many times you need to format the memory card in order to use it... have you formatted the memory card? There's a menu on the camera to do this.

If you're using a card like an SD card, there's a very small slide switch that actually locks the card so no one can over write your pics. Find the slide switch and move it the other way, and that should unlock the card. You'll still have to format.

Memory Card Error

The SD card has a lock switch to prevent existing data from being erased. To record images or movies this switch must be in the normal (non lock) position. Different brands of SD memory cards may identify this switch differently. Regardless the procedure should be the same. Try removing the card from the camera and be sure that the switch is not in the locked position.
