If the card is locked when using the camera, then take the card out.

Use a card reader.
Insert the card into the card reader, then connect the reader to a computer (desk or laptop).
Turn on computer, you should be able to open or delete the file(folder & images) using the computer.
If not, you have a defective card. They are cheap.

If you have no card reader and low on money, then go to Costco,KMart, Sam Clubs, WalMart and etc.

Just use the store's card reader/monitor and asks for help if you needs help on using the store's equipment.

I hope you have done all the preliminary, that is switch off and remove the battery . then after some time load the battery and try.Try with another card. Still it not recovered,Your card may be be infected with virus. If there is no images in this card format it using the camera.If there are images use a recovery software to get the the images and format.

Read the manual- you have somehow initiated this feature to prevent removal of existing images.
There may be a key/padlock symbol button on the body or a similiar instruction on the menu screen.
There is usually a comprehensive manual in PDF on the disk to supplement the booklet.

It says card locked when i turn on camera


SD and SDHC 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.
