Hello

If the card works in another camera or another card doesn't work in your 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
Andrea

Exactly. Sometimes if you use a card reader it will automatically lock the card when you install it. Keep that in mind.

SOURCE: My camera is locking my memory card. I slide the

I have had a similar problem with flimsy lock tabs. I solved it by placing a small amount of scotch tape over the tab - starting near the connection pads, over the tab to the back edge of the card. There's usually not a whole lot of extra room in the slot, so insert carefully and remove portions of tape as needed.

Worst case scenario - if you never use the locking tab (I never do) you could place a small dab of super glue to hold it in place. Let it "set up" before reinserting - you don't want the tab to move an be held on the lock position.

Move the slide switch on the side of the card. Then, go into the camera menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions.

The card is locked so the camera doesn't work. how do I unlock it?


If your camera uses a SD memory card then -
SD and Micro SD memory cards has a smallslide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memorycard. Slide the switch from the READ position tothe WRITE position, which is furthest away from the contacts.

Message reads "card is locked." After


Look at the memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

The camera says in the screen that the card is locked The memory card is locked and I cant figure out how to un lock it is in the set up or what do I do ? my camera is EXILIM 8.1 Mega Pixels


I've never fiddled with this brand of camera, but there will be the option to lock the pictures in the menu. In your manual, look for "memory", "locking your pictures", things like that. Also, some memory cards have a plastic tab that slides to lock the card- make sure that isn't in the lock position, if your card has one. Good luck, and hope this helps.
