Remove the SD card and look for the little sliding switch on the left side of the card (it's very tiny). If this switch is shown in the "Lock" position, slide it to the other unlocked position. If this switch is already in the unlocked position, slide it to locked and then back to unlocked one time. Reinsert the card and try it out in the camera.

I have a Canon A400 that is displaying the common 'memory card error' message. I've been through most of the tricks that I've found on the Internet but still no success. Tried multiple memory cards,...


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact 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. By the way, if you are indeed using 2GB or less cards (as you should be for your older A400), then give the toothpick fix a try listed in the above link.

I have a message on my digimax A400 screen stating CARD LOCKED can u help plse?


Look at the memory card. SD 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.

My camara has a display that says Card locked >


There is a slide button on the side of the card. One direction locks, the other unlocks. If this doesn't work, make sure you didn't buy an SDHD card for a camera that only uses SD. The error message shows if it's the wrong card. That was my mistake last week.

How to unlock memory card


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.
