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.

It might not be the switch on the side of the memory card though it's the first thing you should check.

If that doesn't fix the problem you have damage to the mainboard of the camera, and it would need to be replaced. You can get used ones online, much better option then paying Canon $150 to replace it for you.

It says memory card error.i took out the sd card and it was not locked and it still says memory card locked. i formated the card also and it still says the same thing.


How big is its capacity ? Some device can only support memory card at certain maximum capacity, if you inserted card with higher capacity it wouldn't able to read it and it would say "card error".
Try to insert another card with lower capacity. i.e. if you have got "card error" notification for inserting 4 Gb memory card, try to insert 2 Gb card

Hope this help, and if you think its helpful RATE please.

The card is locked


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.
If that doesn't work, try another card.

Memory card is locked for Cannon Power Shot SD790 - how can I fix the problem?


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.

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.
