Re: card locked

Make sure the SD card's lock slider is in the unlock position.

I might be overlooking the simple of it. But sometimes that's all it is.

If you can, try another card.

When i turn on my camara it says card lock

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.

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.

Every time i turn on my camara it says protected card but its not the memory card its not locked! so whats wrong with my camara??


The message which you are getting because you memory stick is write protected.There is a small thing which make a card write protected.

As I dont know which card you are using so here I am giving an simple example with images.
Just click HERE and first read the instruction.It is from SANDISK as it is the most trusted memory stick brand so i am giving its resemblance.

Follow the same steps and make you card working.
If you still persists or you have any more query then get back to me here.

All The Best.

My camara has a display that says Card locked >

There is a slide button on the side of the card. One direction locks, the other unlocks. If this doesn't work, make sure you didn't buy an SDHD card for a camera that only uses SD. The error message shows if it's the wrong card. That was my mistake last week.

My digital camara will not save pictures. Messages appear.

If you are using SD memory card, it can be locked. Take out your memory card, on the left side there's a switch. Turn switch up and try again. Hope this will work.

Error 99

I get error 99 sometimes on my 20 D but it?s usually to do with a lens that is attached. Sigma lens have been known to cause error's. If it's not that or dirty contact on the lens then it could be a more serious problem. I would at least check it out with a canon dealer/repair centre.
