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 put the camera - 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

My canon eos 600d won't take pics anymore is there a lock or something that could be released


Are you getting an error message or any other indication from the camera? Have you checked the memory card to see whether it's write-protected? What exposure mode(s)? What shutter release mode(s)?

How do i get pictures off internal memory onto a computer or sd card


Hi, I have the similar s8000fd and I transfer pics from internal memory by taking out the sd card then connect to a spare usb socket on computer, then switch camera on. To transfer pics from internal memory to sd card - leave sd card in, switch on camera (playback mode), press menu, select copy, select 'internal memory to sd card', 'select frame' or 'all frames'. It should say 'copy ok?' Press OK.

Tried to take a picture and it says card full. Went to the store to print pictures and there is nothing on the card!!! I cant find all my pics!!!!


Could be a misread:
Start by putting the card in the computer (or hooking up the USB if that's the way you've been uploading the pics to the puter), and let the software find out what's on the card.

Once you have all your pics in the computer, they're safe.
To get prints, you can download them to the same card later, or your thumbdrive.

*of course, if there was a communication error between the camera and card, it's possible that there are no pics...but that's not likely if you setup the card before using it.

With the card back in the camera, go to setup menu and choose "Format" and confirm.
This is the required first step with every new card-camera relationship, and insures clear communications.
This will clean the card and clear any errors the camera had before when the pics were on the card.

Again, to get prints, you can put the card back in the puter and DL them back onto the card.

I uploaded pics from my computer onto my Camera SDPhotosmart M537


If I understand you correctly, you put pics onto the SD card using the computer, then put the card in the camera and now can't see the pics? Is that correct? The camera won't recognize the pics because it uses a different recording system than the computer. Now if you want to take more pictures using that card, you will need to format it in the camera first.

Memory stick eject


well to record onto, switch the power button to "camera mode". this will let the camera know to record as well as take pictures onto the memory stik.

As for ejecting the memory stik, jus simply push it INWARD gently and it will spring OUTWARD toward you. to put it bac, do the opposite till the card locks into place

I CANT UNLOCK THE MEMORY CARD...SO I CANNOT TAKE PICS....


The SETUP menus should allow you to unlock the card. Alternatively, re-formatting will clear the card and start anew, or you can put a new card in (they are cheap)

Memory card error is common problems in various sd cards and cf cards. I took a closer look at my little SD memory card. It has a sliding lock on it to protect data. Check to see if the card works when you slide that lock up or down. Read more about memory card:

Same problem. My camera is 3 weeks old. I dropped it at a short distance onto a wooden floor and it immediately said my memory card was locked. I took the memory card out, it was not locked. I tried 4 different cards and they all say the same thing. If I take the memory card out, the camera runs fine on internal memory, but only holds about 8 pics. I've tried everything. Please help!!
