Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

when i turn on my camera it says the card is - 6c99e31.jpg

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

Have a pantax 7.1 camera need to turn off card lock


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 Canon A460 says the Card is locked. The lock switch on the card is set to unlock. I have another camera with a similar card. Both cards work in the other camera. neither card will work in the A460 both...


back up your data first,thenyou reformat the memory card in the camera.i guess you have formatted the memory card in another device.canon cameras generally do not accept cards that have been formatted in another device.then sitch off the camera and reinsert the memory card.

Card is locked


There is a small lock switch on the side of the memory card, slide it to the other position and try again.

1. Turn the camera off
2. take the memory card out
3. slide the lock slider to the other position
4. place the card back in to the camera
5. turn on the camera.

if the problem remains repeat steps 1 to 5.

if the problem still remains its now obvious the issue is not with the memory card, you may try another card on the camera if you wish.

The most likely cause for this issue is in the memory card reader of the camera. there is a small lever/switch on the side of the card reader that detects if the card is locked or unlocked. You would have to take the camera apart and pull the stuck lock "detector"/switch up so that it doesn't touch the the metal.

Unlock card


If the card is locked, you could the steps below:

- Turn off camera
- Remove memory card
- Take a look on the switch of the memory card itself
* If it's at the TOP = card is UNLOCKED
* If it's at the BOTTOM = card is LOCKED

- So, you just have to make sure that the switch is at the top
for the memory card to be UNLOCKED

After doing that, you just have to put back the memory card to your camera and turn on the camera. Try to check if this works.
