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.

I got cannon power shot sx130 is it reads memory card error the memory card is not locked but the eject button is not working how to fix this problem. thanks


Try to switch off the Camera and restart it gain. Again, Sometimes, its due to some auto-run software running in the card which prevents that from ejection. You can try to even format the card in the camera itself. That may work also.

As a last resort, check up your camera and get that memory card removed out of your Camera.

Memory Card does not work in our Cannon 6.0 MP Power Shot A540. Message says Memory Card Error - Card Locked.


Hi,

Turn off your computer the remove the memory card. Look at the card, it should have a small tab on the side that could be slide up or down to lock and unlock it. Just adjust it opposite from its position now and it should be fine.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a Cannon Power Shot SD400 and the Card Locked feature keeps coming up on the screen. How do I get rid of this???


Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. 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.

Sounds like two things are happening here. You may be putting the card in improperly...check the manual to see if the card should be face up or face down. Also, be sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position.

How to unlock my memory card


On side of The SD card there is a little lever that slides up and down this is the protection lock. PUSH it all the way to the top. Sometimes when inserting it gets caught and will move just enough to have the camera consider it locked. So be careful when inserting it.

If this does not fix it try another SD card or reformat it.

Cant unlock memory card


The little slide switch may be broken inside the card. Do you have another card to try in the camera? If another card does work in the camera, then it's time to buy a new card. They're inexpensive these days anyways at about $6 for 2GB:
