There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the switch on the side of the card, or the switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Another possible problem is the contacts on your card is corrosion on it's contacts. Take a small piece of fine grit sandpaper to the contacts. Works for me!

1. Try to format the card in the camera. It should give an error when faulty.
2. Put the card in a pc with cardreader and download this testprogram.
3. Run this program to test the memorycard.
4. Delete afterwards the test contents or re-format it.

I have a canon A590 it always says the memory card is locked. Please Help we are going on vaction....


Look at the memory card. 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 that doesn't work, try another card.

BTW, if you're about to go on vacation, get a second memory card anyway. Would you drive a car without a spare tire in the trunk?

I can only take at least 15 shots in my Cannon Powershot A590 IS, pls. help me how to adjust for me to take pictures atleast hundreds of shots.


Your camera has limited storage using internal memory and probably came with a 32 MB memory card. An SD card of even 1 GB (tiny by today's standards) will hold about 100x as many picture as your internal memory.

Buy a larger memory card. These don't cost much and a 1 GB card can hold a LOT of pictures. After 1 GB, there are differences in the memory cards and the higher capacity card might not work in your camera.

If you want to increase the number of pictures you can store either with the current card or using internal memory, then you have a couple of other options. 1) change the picture size to "small" and 2) set the compression to "normal" to achieve the maximum number of images for your memory. Warning: small and normal might give pictures that are too low of resolution for what you want.

I have a Canon Power Shot A590 and everytime i try to take a picture it says card locked. What do i do?


Take the memory card out of the camera. 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.

If you make sure that the memory card is properly seated and the batteries in and the battery door properly closed, then it should power up. If still no success, it may be the micro switch that closes when the battery door is closed.

Canon a590 Card (not really) 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.
