I had this problem too. I took out the SD card (which was unlocked), locked it, then unlocked it again. Then I put it back in the camera and it recognised it as unlocked.

SOURCE: Card Locked ! Error

Remove SD card, then whilst card is removed, delete all pictures that may still be stored in cameras 'internal' memory (usually just a few) then replace SD card. Should be unlocked now?.

"memory full" but SD cards are empty


Not sure if it will be this, but has the SD card got locked by accident? There is a little sliding button on the side of the card, which can be locked to protect the content. My camera shows the card as full if I accidentally lock the card. You can just slide it back again to unlock it. I never noticed the button was there until I accidentally knocked it while loading the card in and out of my PC to transfer the photos.

My camera seems to be locked on the internal memory no matter how many blank sd cards i put in it keeps saying memory full


You need to get rid of the pics on the internal memory. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format". Follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. After that, your card should work properly.

No matter what card we put in the camera, it always read locked and will not take pictures. please help!!


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.

"Card Locked"


Hi!
There's a small switch on the memory card reader inside the camera which detects that the card is locked. Most likely this switch is broken. You can try to point it with needle or something but I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair to a local repair shop or Canon service center.

It says memory card locked when it's not..


try moving the small sliding switch on the card to the "unlock" position. That usually solves the "card locked" problem.

Memory card


If the card is locked, you could the steps below:

- Turn off camera
- Remove memory card
- Take a look on the switch of the memory card itself
* If it's at the TOP = card is UNLOCKED
* If it's at the BOTTOM = card is LOCKED

- So, you just have to make sure that the switch is at the top
for the memory card to be UNLOCKED

After doing that, you just have to put back the memory card to your camera and turn on the camera. Try to check if this works.
