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.

My camera wont take pix says slide lock to write position, when I do that it display "CHA" don't know what that means and still can't take pix


CHA also means the card cannot be used for other reasons. F.i. the card can be damaged. Try to format the card. That is, when you could use the card before. If you bought a new card, Make sure it is not a SDXC card, because your camera only allows MMC, SD and SDHC cards. If nothing helps, also look in the memory card holder, if nothing strange is in there, or the sensor that looks for the lock, is functioning correct. If you don't know how, please visit or contact a Nikon-Authorised service centre.

When i turn camera on to take picture it comes up with a blue screen and says write protect and wont let me take pictures but i can still use other functions,what does this mean?


Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. 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.

Camera says card is locked canon powershot sx100


"Card is locked" usually means that the little write protect switch on an SD card has been set to stop the card being written to. Seems unlikely that it would happen to two cards in a row, but it is worth checking this.

SD card Locked


The error code 000060 means SD card locked. The switch on your card may be unattached internally. Try a different card.

What does write protect mean?


"Write Protect" means that something is locked and your device (camera) cannot "write" to it's storage area.
What type of "storage media" are you using?
For example:  the camera's internal memory, a CompactFlash card, a Memory Stick, an "xD-Picture Card" (micro, mini or regular sized), or a Secure Digital/MultiMediaCard.
[Did you put something  (a small plastic card of some sort) into a slot on the camera before or after turning it on?
Those little cards usually have a tiny button (also called a switch or lever) on them that will move back and forth to lock (write protect) or unlock it. This sounds like the memory card inside your camera is locked or "Write Protected.

To fix this simply take it out, closely examine the memory for the button- the button will be closer to the word "lock" or "protect" and all you need to do is gently slide it in the opposite direction from where it currently is. Put it back into the camera and see if it still says "Write Protect."

CARD LOCKED


It means the SD memory card has a little switch on the side that is in the "locked" position. Remove card, move switch, re-install, and you should be good to go.

In card position


check the SD card and see if the little tab on the side of it is slid to the position that says "lock" If you cant see the words, try just switching the tab to the other side. Since SD means Secure Digital, these cards wont do anything if the lock tab is not in the right position.
