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.

Check the card slot for debris and clear it out gently with canned air, small thin piece of plastic, etc on the same side as the lock tab. Try not to use anything metal unless you have a really delicate touch.

My camera says card locked but I have no memory card in the camera. I can not take any pictures


The camera won't take photos without a card unless that model has a menu setting to allow that option (though nothing is stored). Put a different card in the camera and format it. If it doesn't see the card try formatted it first in the computer and then format it in the camera before you try shooting.

Camera keeps saying internal memory is full, even after putting a


Your internal memory is separate from your memory card. Think of it as two folders, the internal memory cannot be removed, and the memory card is one you can take with you. You can put new memory cards in it all day, the internal memory will still have pictures in it. You may wish to consider copying all internal memory to the memory card. To do this, make sure your camera has a memory card in it. View pictures on your internal memory, then from the menu option select 'copy all images to external memory.' In doing this, all of your photos will be moved, you can then clean out your internal memory by deleting everything/formatting it. :)

Camera says Card Locked and I can't Reformat the Memory Card


From the problem described by you, it seem your camera has gone into a internal memory error and hung. Try to take out the battery, the memory card etc , clean and then reinsert and then power on? Try this it might work.... Generally the camera should start working normally once you will take out the battery, since it will reset.
If it still does not work, then think you might need to take it to Canon. They are very helpful and could sort out if you have system software problem. But Before that, I suggest that you must take out its memory stick, the battery etc and keep the camera like that for about 15 minutes. Then only reinsert the battery (fully Charged) and then try to reformat the memory card. If you are lucky, you might not need to go to Canon. Best of Luck.

Memory card problem


Hi and welcome to FixYa.

I'm not sure about your particular instance, but this can happen if you change up cameras or use a card reader.

As for being unable read the memory card, sometimes the card can be switched off by accident. Turn off the camera and remove the card. Look at the side of the card and there will be a little switch. One end says locked (or shows a little picture of a locked lock) and the other end says unlocked (or, shows a little picture of an unlocked lock). Just move the switch to unlocked.
Try that, and let me know with a comment if that doesn't work, othewise, thanks for coming to FixYa!

Card locked


Card lock means that someone switched the little gray sliding lock on the memory card. It prevents the camera from saving new pictures to AND copying pictures from the card. All you have to do is take the card out and slide the little gray slider back into the unlocked position. Take the card out of the camera. On the side of it is a little 'switch'. Flip the switch in the opposite 'unlock' position
1)check the card to make sure the write protect switch isn't on the wrong setting. It's on the side of the Secure Digital card (not memory stick).

2) I hope you're not buying Memory Stick. That's for Sony. You should be buying support digital.

3) Check the card contacts--if the card isn't making good contact in-camera, you'll get hold of card errors. This happens when someone touches the contacts on the card. Usually cleaning will work unless something sticky get on it. Most memory cards do have exposed contacts, so you enjoy to be careful when handling them ...

4) Format the card in the camera if you grasp an error message. It may just entail to be formatted.Your battery is always drain quickly, that’s symptom of the battery near to run out.,it’s better to change it, your owner's manual say that Lithium AA's will work well and later almost as long.

Hope this may help….

Hope this may help;
