Question about Casio EXILIM Zoom EX-Z150 Digital Camera
I tried to turn my camera on and it said "The card is locked" how do i get it unlocked????
Check the lock switch on the SD card. If it's off then it's probably a broken switch inside the camera memory card readed. The memory card readers in cameras have a small switch that detects if the SD card LOCK switch is on. This is a hardware problem, you should give it for a repair - it's not a hard repair - I usually cut off the switch and put a wire accross so the camera allways thinks that the card is not locked.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: CARD LOCKED
There should be a small toggle along the end side (it is tiny and easily missed, but it is there, I just checked my memory card / mine is 4GB SD card from Sony) that you can swtich to unlock
and your images may come back that way.
Look for it this way, hold the card face down it should be on the back edge where you use your thumb or finger to push it into the slot on your camera.

Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera.
But it sounds like you may have already tried this. If so, see this link for additional things that you can try.

Ok, here is something you can try:
In your case the problem is not with the card but rather with your camera's card reader. This is a rather hard problem to fix yourself but here is what you can do.
Open the card slot of your camera and peer inside with a sharp light or torch. You should see a little metal tab or switch inside the card slot. This is the write protection switch. Contrary to popular belief , the switch on the card does not impact the operation of the card itself but rather tells the camera that the card should be locked by depressing the little pin inside.
If you put a protected card into a camera with no protection switch , the card would operate normally.
However , with time and repeated use , the switch will start to bend slightly until it will no longer depress when a unlocked card is inserted.
With a toothpick or needle , slightly and very gently push this tab up a little bit. (some camera's will require you to pull the tab down), This will allow the switch to operate once again and should solve your problem.
