Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

How do I un lock my card? - 6c99e31.jpg

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

Ask ko lng sana kung bakit me lumalabas na WRITE PROTECT pag binubuksan ko ung camera tapos di ko sya magamit pag merong memory card


Hello,
It means that your writing capability on the memory storage device has been turned on. What you can do is disable it and check your memory card if the write protect is locked.
Cheers!

My camera displays "No SD card" when I do have a


Hello beach.... remove the sd card and check the perimeter of the card to find the locking mechanism. If the card is in the lock position, move it to unlock. Then reinsert the card, turn on the camera and go into the menu. Find format. Format the SD card and then it should be good. Joe

The camera says in the screen that the card is locked The memory card is locked and I cant figure out how to un lock it is in the set up or what do I do ? my camera is EXILIM 8.1 Mega Pixels


I've never fiddled with this brand of camera, but there will be the option to lock the pictures in the menu. In your manual, look for "memory", "locking your pictures", things like that. Also, some memory cards have a plastic tab that slides to lock the card- make sure that isn't in the lock position, if your card has one. Good luck, and hope this helps.

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.

CARD LOCKED


Pull the card out of the camera and slide the tiny slide switch on the card to the other position. All the SD-type cards that I have met have this lock on them.

My Canon A460 Digital camera displays ''card locked''.


There is not many things that could cause this symptom. The card lock position mechanism is faulty and will require a replacement circuit board. Most likely about a 20-30 dollar part.

There's a little switch on the side of the SD card. Remove it from the camera and find the switch. Normally, there's some very small printing next to it saying something like (Lock / Unlock).
