Hi!
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!

Tom

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.

SOURCE: My camera says "Card locked!" all the time now even when it isn't

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.

SOURCE: Memory card locked

Hello

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.

Kind Regards
Andrea

When I turn the camera on, it says memory card error, card locked!. I took the card out and saw that the lock switch is not on.. still doing it


The lock/unlock tab may be getting moved to lock when inserting into the slot of the camera, and then moving to the unlock position when it is removed from the camera. This will make you think it remained in the unlocked position while it was in the camera.

Use a small amount of scotch tape along the edge of the card with the tab to hold it in the unlocked position. Gently insert it into the camera - do not force the card into the camera. You may have to trim excess tape from the card, depending on how tightly the card fits in the camera slot. if you have trouble keeping enough tape on the card to hold the tab in place, you could try using a dab of super glue instead. The glue method however, will be permanent.

Once the card can be easily inserted and removed, try it again.

I hope this helps!

Card is locked


There is a small lock switch on the side of the memory card, slide it to the other position and try again.

1. Turn the camera off
2. take the memory card out
3. slide the lock slider to the other position
4. place the card back in to the camera
5. turn on the camera.

if the problem remains repeat steps 1 to 5.

if the problem still remains its now obvious the issue is not with the memory card, you may try another card on the camera if you wish.

The most likely cause for this issue is in the memory card reader of the camera. there is a small lever/switch on the side of the card reader that detects if the card is locked or unlocked. You would have to take the camera apart and pull the stuck lock "detector"/switch up so that it doesn't touch the the metal.

Memory card


If the card is locked, you could the steps below:

- Turn off camera
- Remove memory card
- Take a look on the switch of the memory card itself
* If it's at the TOP = card is UNLOCKED
* If it's at the BOTTOM = card is LOCKED

- So, you just have to make sure that the switch is at the top
for the memory card to be UNLOCKED

After doing that, you just have to put back the memory card to your camera and turn on the camera. Try to check if this works.
