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.

    I have a Canon Powershot A1100 IS and I was able to take pictures on Christmas morning but when I took the camera to a function 3 hours later. It said, 'Card Locked'. I slide the switch to no avail. I have inserted another memory card also to no avail. I just purchase a brand new memory card and nothing is working now I am such the internet for answers.

I have had this camera for two years and never had a problem. Now when I switch it on the screen shows the message, " Memory card is write protected" and the camera will not function.


On the memory card is a slide lock that locks the card from being accidentally written to or erased. embossed with a lock that is unlocked/locked.
Somehow this slide lock has been moved to the write protection mode/locked. Could have happened if you removed the memory card lately.
Remove the memory card and slide the lock to unlock reinstall the card and that should cure your problem.

Memory card locked


If it is a SD or SDHC memory card, there is a small write protect switch on the side of the card. Remove the memory card from the camera and slide the switch to the unlocked position.

Memory card locked problem


You neglected to specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm assuming it uses SD/SDHC cards.

SD and SDHC 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.
