On side of The SD card there is a little lever that slides up and down this is the protection lock. PUSH it all the way to the top. Sometimes when inserting it gets caught and will move just enough to have the camera consider it locked. So be careful when inserting it.

If this does not fix it try another SD card or reformat it.

How can i manage my memory card because it damage due to that my camera not working now whenever i start its show that card is locked but another card not insert in camera so can you help me?


sir,
if your memory card is good, then you have to check the M/C slot in the camera, in some cases using the contact cleaner will clear this, just spry in the slot then put a memory card often eject and push several times.

I got cannon power shot sx130 is it reads memory card error the memory card is not locked but the eject button is not working how to fix this problem. thanks


Try to switch off the Camera and restart it gain. Again, Sometimes, its due to some auto-run software running in the card which prevents that from ejection. You can try to even format the card in the camera itself. That may work also.

As a last resort, check up your camera and get that memory card removed out of your Camera.

Hi Sir My CANON A470 it shows memory card is locked & memory card error, most of the file are in it how should i retrieve it, i ve tried with new batteries also.My PC also doesn't support it


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here.

Memory Card does not work in our Cannon 6.0 MP Power Shot A540. Message says Memory Card Error - Card Locked.


Hi,

Turn off your computer the remove the memory card. Look at the card, it should have a small tab on the side that could be slide up or down to lock and unlock it. Just adjust it opposite from its position now and it should be fine.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

My memory card is in the locked position in my Canon Power shot A470 how do I unlock it


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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

When I turn the camera on, it says memory card error, card locked!. I took the card out and saw that the lock switch is not on.. still doing it


The lock/unlock tab may be getting moved to lock when inserting into the slot of the camera, and then moving to the unlock position when it is removed from the camera. This will make you think it remained in the unlocked position while it was in the camera.

Use a small amount of scotch tape along the edge of the card with the tab to hold it in the unlocked position. Gently insert it into the camera - do not force the card into the camera. You may have to trim excess tape from the card, depending on how tightly the card fits in the camera slot. if you have trouble keeping enough tape on the card to hold the tab in place, you could try using a dab of super glue instead. The glue method however, will be permanent.

Once the card can be easily inserted and removed, try it again.

I hope this helps!
