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 if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.

I try to take a picture and this comes on the screen write protect.


This is a common problem with SD & SDHC type memory cards - and is easily fixed.

Remove the card from the camera and inspect the edge for a sliding tab and lock indicator.
690144df-2144-46c7-9b90-dd85c207a09b.jpgYou can see the tab & lock indicator on the left side edge in the picture of the front of the card above. Slide the tab UP - away from the lock position - as shown in the picture. The card is now able to be written. When the tab is in the lock position, the card may only be read.

Carefully reinsert the card into the camera - taking effort to see that the tab is not bumped / moved back into the lock position. You should be able to take pictures and have them saved to the card - without the locked message from this point on.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Card locked shows of view finder, cannot take a picture it shows a't picture but won't take a picture


Look at the 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.

Card is locked


There is a possibility of two problems here, your camera uses an SD/SDHC card which has a slide lock on it I'll give you a diagram for this.

Next thing there is a Custom Set Function I thinks it's number 5 "No memory Card" it's there so you can switch your camera over to make pictures without the card, which to me is not so good because it lets you make pictures without a memory card.

Make sure you have an SD card in your camera and it's been formatted for that camera and change this to "Lock" so you can't make pictures without a card in the camera.

So a quick recap make sure you have an SD/SDHC card in your camera, make sure it's formatted for your camera and take Custom Set Function and change it to "Lock". You should be good to go

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.

Casio Z80 card locked


Hi,
Make sure the write protect lock is off by taking the card out of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab down, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg .

If the lock is off and you still get the error then the card maybe damaged.

Hope this helps.


Good luck

When i try to take pictures my camera says card locked.


It's the memory card or SD card you have in the camera. (it sounds like)
Try taking the SD card out and if you look at it closely there is a little switch/ thing you can slide. Slide it to the other side, put it back in your camera and try again. Hope that helps

CARD LOCKED


take out the memory card and move the switch located somewhere on the memory card usually on the side to the unlocked position. Then the memory card isn't locked this is so you don't accidentally delete important things
Thanks and enjoy,

Sd card not working


Check to make sure you didn't accidentally move the locking switch on the SD card to the locked position. There will be a switch on the side of the card. One side of the switch says locked, (or has picture of a locked lock) and the other side says unlocked, or has a picture of an unlocked lock. Try it out.
