Greetings Burtie,

There should be a small slide tab on your memory card which locks it. Please slide that tab to the unlocked position and this should fix your issue with a locked memory card.

Sincerely,
Agent Dort

Camera reads card lock when trying to take a photo


Since you neglected to specify the make and model of your camera, I'm going to assume it uses SD/SDHC cards.

SD and 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.

If this doesn't do it, try another card.

Memory card locked


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here.

Can't help with the camera- sounds like it has a fault.

The photos, however, should be recoverable by putting the memory card into a card reader on a computer.

Screen shows 'card locked' ,Unable to take photos Memory card checked. It is not 'locked'. Exchanged yto new card but still ;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.

Casio exilim 8.1 card is locked


Hi!

Can you check if there is a small push button on the memory card itself? It could that it is currently on write-protect mode.

Everytime that I try to take a photo my screen reads "The card is locked." I've checked my cards and neither of them have been locked.


You have a bad locking mechism on the card or the camera itself has malfunctioned thinkng its loced but not. Try reformatting the stick using your pc and see if that help if not take the camera in for service.

hi there
if you look at the card there is a tiny little slider on one side and it locks the card to prevent erasure. slide it in the opposite direction and that should fix it.

Ive had this problem in the past with a card that was previously used and had non-applicable applications on it. Hook the card up to your computer and try to delete it using the computer. I hope this helps.- JHOBBS
