I have a canon camera SD1300 and when i turned it on it says memory card lock and i tried to look at the switch but there is no switch on the side what should i do?

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.

Memory card locked


Hi Thanks for your question.

SOLUTION 1 - Unlock the memory card.

There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked.

SOLUTION 2 - Toggle the lock switch.

If the lock switch is not on lock:
1. Slide the switch up and down. Repeat this 3 times.
2. Let it stay on the Lock position for 30 seconds.
3. Slide the switch up to unlock the card.
4. Try to transfer files into the device.

For non-SD cards: Format the card

The data on the memory card may be corrupted.

WARNING: Formatting will delete all the files in the device. Backup all your data before formatting.

Thank You for using FixYa.

Anyone want spare parts for Canon S40?

Hi BigLarry, My toddler daughter recently dropped our Canon S40, and broke the casing on the camera. It still works, but doesn't retract the lens when using the slide cover. I need to replace the casing. If you still have the unit, would you be interested in selling it to me for spares? Is the casing still in good order? If so, I will bear all costs of postage too Hope to hear from you soon Regards Simon L
