Camera says no memory card. I have bought two new cards. cleaned all contacts. bought new batteries. card is not locked.

I googled an by a fast glimpse it seams that the camera is supporting only 4gb cards, eather way, you might want to try a smaller card to make sure that the problem isn't there. Other thing, try formating the cards. You can choose FAT32 or NTFS when doing this whit your computer. try first the FAT32 and then NTFS. If this doesn't work, see if there is a custom format option in the camera that you have to use before using a new card.

Usually this error appears to camera who use a SD card. Your camera use an SD card ? I have the same problem in the past on my nikon coolpix L11 I assume the card is not in the LOCK position when you get the write protection warning You have to open the camera ant clean two contacts on the left side of the card slot. You can check that contact whit an electronic tester for continuity after you clean this contact. When the SD card is in lock position the contact should be discontinued and when the card is in write position, you should have a continuity on the electronic tester.

Card locked

Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.

When i try to take pictures my camera says card locked.

It's the memory card or SD card you have in the camera. (it sounds like)
Try taking the SD card out and if you look at it closely there is a little switch/ thing you can slide. Slide it to the other side, put it back in your camera and try again. Hope that helps

Screen says "card is locked"

You have an sd card for this cam, depending on who made the card
there is a little white tab,or grey, on the side of the card, you can see that it can slide back and forth, and you should see the word lock,
just make sure the little tab is not on lock, slide it the other way.

You max card size is 2gig, and the first time you put in a new card you have to format the card with the camera.
