There are many reasons for this.

But at least you may try this first.

1.Turn off the camera.
2. Remove your battery and memory card.
3. wait at least 3-5 minutes.
4. Insert fresh battery and memory card.
5. Turn on the camera.
6. It should work now.

This is a basic reset for your camera.

    Most lock problems can be solved with this method. But if it will not work then please give some information about the situation. Thank you.

    Sometimes it is necessary to change memory card. Try with the old one first, then try without memory card and lastly try with another or with a new memory card please. These checks must be done. After that, there are some detailed checks. Meanwhile after the above checks, you should press all the buttons one by one. Because in some cases one or two buttons can be found as a pressed condition. Please control that too.

How to unlock a picture

Go to the playback menu and select it (you may have to adjust the circular option know to get to the playback menu). Once there, scroll to the picture(s) that are locked by using the sideways selection arrow buttons. Then select the up or down arrows, which will lock or unlock your picture. You can also erase any locked pictures, in case you want to, by formatting the xD card. Hope this helps.

Samsung digimax4010 memorycard locked cant take pictures

To fix this, remove the SD card from your camera. Look on the side and you will find a little switch. One end of the switch says locked the other end says unlocked. Move the switch from locked to unlocked. Replace it in your camera and turn it back on.

Thanks for coming to FixYa and fee free to rate my solution.
