Displays memory card error. Card locked. I have tried several different cards that are not locked and it displays the same.


Look at the card where the lock tab is, Now look in the slot on the camera where that card goes, Check for a tab on the camera that hits the tab on the card. If it is missing, stuck or broken you get that error. This is tricky because the slot has a little door on it that has to be held open on some models, also you need a light. You may be able to use a sewing needle or eyeglass screwdriver to probe the locking tab sensor.

Memory card error


Look at your memory card. SD 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.

Anytime I inserted memory card to my Samsung Digimax S600 Digital Camera it an error message is displayed saying "MEMORY CARD LOCKED". I have tried other memory card but i received the same message. How...


Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards

Camera is not taking out no pictures on display screen marks memory card locked


It sounds like the memory card has its little locking switch in the locked position. Take the card out of the camera and move the small switch on the side of the card to the opposite position. Re-install and you should be good to go.

"Memory card is protected"


This error message indicates that the memory card is locked. The switch on the memory card is in the write-protect position. Reset the switch as shown on the camera screen.

"Memory card is locked


This error message means that the memory card is write-protected. To take a picture, turn off the camera. Then insert a new card or change the storage location to internal memory.
