    Is this happening with more than one memory card?

    SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. Slide it toward the contacts to enable write, away from the contacts to protect.

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.

Message on camera says "memory card locked" What


Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. SD and SDHC 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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

My memory card is saying Write protection every time i put it in my camera. What do i do to fix it? it is not on lock mode because i flipped the switch on it.


The actual switch that detects whether the memory card is in write protect or not inside the camera is probably stuck in the "write protect" position. With a flashlight, inspect the switch in the memory card compartment.

Message that says protected card will not let me take a picture. What should I do?


When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock or not protected.

Memory card


There is a catch inside the camera that is possibly out of whack. You need to make sure the camera itself is not moving the security slider on the memory card. This would be due to puting the card in wrong or just from wear on the camera.

Try securing switch on memory card to write position with either tape etc. Make sure not to get ape stuck in slot so don't use too much.

"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.
