Question about Pentax Optio W10 Digital Camera
I used my Pentax Optio E10 tonight and took the memory card out to put the pictures on the computer, put the card BACK into the camera, turned it on to delete the pictures, and it now says Card Locked on the screen. It won't let me take pictures or do anything at all. How do I UNLOCK the card when I don't know how it got locked in the first place? My memory card became full so I went to remove it from my camera (Optio W10) when I press the card it comes out about 5 mm and then is stuck it will NOT come out and I am not going to force it. So I thought I would at least delete a few pictures so that i could take a few more and found that the screen says "card locked". I am stuck - i cannot use my camera at all - cannot take pictures, cannot download pictures ( the computer tells me that the card is locked) and cannot remove card.....AND I am about to go on holiday. PLease can you tell me how I can get out of this and how to avoid doing it again - Thanks.
What you need to do is take out the card, and on the side of it there should be a little gray thing which can slide up and down. It needs to be slid all the way up. I hope this helps!!

I took it to a camera repair man. He found that a piece of plastic from near the switch of the card had broken off and had jammed the card in the camera. The plastic had also destroyed the cameras interior and the whole memory card socket area had to be replaced!!
