Re: Card Locked?

There is a switch in the memory card, you just have to slide it upward.

If you are using a new memory card, format it first.

Do the following:
- Press Menu/ Ok button
- Go to Set Up 2
- Select Format
- Select Yes
- Press Menu/ Ok button

The memory card is locked! I don't know how this happened but I want to delete the photos. How do I unlock the card and delete all the photos

Depending on the card, there may be a little slide lock on the side that you can move with your thumb to lock and unlock.

My camara always show a message Card locked What do I have to do to delete that message

Since you don't know how it happened, you should read the manual, to see what LOCKED is.


Go through the setup menus and find the place where you lock and unlock the memory, because it probably thinks you have write protected some of you images.

Maybe you should take it out and put it back in again.

Take out the batteries for a day or so, to let the thing reset.

Re-format the card, after saving everything of course.

I have a Canon G10. When I removed and reinserted my sdhc card, I now get a message that the card is locked. This happens for every card I now insert, even though the lock switch is in the unlock...

Some canons have a switch inside the card slot....don't know if you can get at it but you can try things like a dental pick, a toothpick, etc. Be careful.

My camera suddenly had the message "card locked!".

If this camera uses SD cards then what may be happening is that the little lever that drops into the slot on the side of the card to indicate locked or unlocked is jammed in the locked position. If you shine a flashlight in you might be able to see where the pin is.

Card locked

If this happened after the card had been removed then you may have inadvertently slide the card lock into the 'lock' position. If the card has not been disturbed, the very fragile 'switch' may be defective. I would try removing the card and operating the slide-lock several times and then leaving it in the unlocked position.

Remove SD card, then whilst card is removed, delete all pictures that may still be stored in cameras 'internal' memory (usually just a few) then replace SD card. Should be unlocked now?.
