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.

every time i go try to take a picture it says the - 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

Memory card error


Card errors can occur from time to time. Special, when you remove the card while the camera is still switched on. If you have (or think to have) important pictures on the card, please first try to save them. There are special recovery programmes. Several memory card manufacturers do have them. Some other firms also promote them online. To be sure you still have pictures on the card, you could save, find a recover program and most of the time you can use it to recover a few pictures for free. If the program can't find any recoverable picture, you also don't need to buy the program. If there are no pictures on the card, toy can format the card in the camera. If that is also not possible, check if the card is locked. SD cards do have a lock switch. Also you should check if all the contacts of the memory card and in the cameras memory slot are clean and there is no dust or debris in the memory slot.

How to Unlock SD Card


<p>Many times people do not realize that a <span style="font-weight: bold;">SD card</span> can be <span style="font-weight: bold;">write protected </span>or locked. They will <span style="font-weight: bold;">try to download pictures</span> or <span style="font-weight: bold;">make changes to the pictures </span>and the <span style="font-weight: bold;">SD card will not allow</span> them to do it. The little lock feature on the side of the card will <span style="font-weight: bold;">write protect the SD card</span> so that changes cannot be made. You will need to <span style="font-weight: bold;">unlock the SD card</span> to be able to make the changes that you want to make or download anything from it.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p><span style="font-weight: bold;">To allow the SD card to be accessed</span> is a simple as sliding a small tab on the side of the card to the <span style="font-weight: bold;">unlocked position</span>. Usually this means sliding the tab towards the back of the card and away from the front of the card. The card will have to be removed from the <span style="font-weight: bold;">camera</span> or <span style="font-weight: bold;">PC</span> to be able to do this.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>Here is a <span style="font-weight: bold;">picture of an SD Card</span> and you can see the tab on the side of the card. It clearly shows you what is the locked and unlocked positions on the card.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p><img src="heatman101_2.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>This feature can be very useful to make sure that you do not inadvertently <span style="font-weight: bold;">erase data or pictures</span> from the card. If you have children viewing pictures on the SD Card make sure to lock it before allowing them to play around to make sure that they <span style="font-weight: bold;">do not erase your pictures</span>.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>As you can see this is a very good feature to have and it will be very useful to you, but you do need to remember to unlock it before trying to make changes to the card.<br />

Memory card locked


SD/SDHC 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.

Every time i try to take a picture "card locked


SD and SDHC 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.
If that doesn't work, try another card.

Card locked


If this happened after the card had been removed then you may have inadvertently slide the card lock into the 'lock' position. If the card has not been disturbed, the very fragile 'switch' may be defective. I would try removing the card and operating the slide-lock several times and then leaving it in the unlocked position.

When trying to take a picture it says card locked.


The SD card lock/unlock switch has been moved to the lock position. Remove the card and slide the switch (along the edge of the card) to unlock. If it is in unlock, try sliding the switch back and forth a couple of times. Reinsert the card and it should be ready to go.

Card locked


There's a little yellow switch on the left side of your memory card labled "lock" with an arrow pointing down. Push it up. Note: If it doesn't work right away, try uploading all your photos to your computer and then dumping them off of the card.  Push the switch up again and it should start taking pictures again.

My casio Exilim will not take pictures or delete pictures.


The lock sensor is faulty. Try clicking the card in and out about 20 times in a row. I am guessing you will need a whole new system board.
