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 troubleshooting tips for this problem.

Card Locked. How to unlock


Do you mean the SD card is locked to "read only" and will not allow the formatting or saving of photos to it? If so, remove the card and you should see a switch on it that slides to lock and unlock it.

WHAT DOES "WRITE PROTECT" MEANS AND HOW TO REMOVE


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Hi I have a Canon 500D and the camera, not the sd card, is is on card lock and I do not know how to remove it. I have looked in menu and gone to 'protect Images' and it says "Card write protected'. ...


Hi Carolyn. There could be several reasons for locked card. 1. pin on side of the SD card must be in UP position, not DOWN2. Reformat your card via computer to FAT323. Card reader inside camera has one "little piece" inside for monitoring if the pin on SD card is pulled down or not. If this "little piece" is bent or broken, your camera could mean that SD card is locked. In this case easiest way is to return camera back to shop. Or if you like, disassembly camera, but you will lost your warranty.

What does it mean when the camera says protected card


It means that the memory card is write-protected.

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.

Hello


Locked? There is a small tab on the card that slides into the "lock" or "unlock" position.

If you mean "stuck" then you should realize the to remove the card you push it in until it clicks and pops out.
