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.

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.

It's not the camera, it's the memory card. 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.

When i place a memory card in the camera it says memory card is unusable please insert new memory card i have already tried 2 cards


just first check that there is nothing else in the card slot. Tiny things can accidentally find there way in. Using a vacuum cleaner try to clean anything out.
If this does not work ask again and give the brand and model number of the camers.

Just installed memory card and gives me lockecke camer msg and cannot take any pictures


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.

Memory card lockes on my panasonic lumix


If you take the card out of the camera, there's usually a tiny little switch on the card itself.  You can lock the card so you don't accidentally write over important photos.  Because it's so tiny, it's easy to switch it accidentally...and some are loose so they switch over on their own.

CARD LOCKED


take out the memory card and move the switch located somewhere on the memory card usually on the side to the unlocked position. Then the memory card isn't locked this is so you don't accidentally delete important things
Thanks and enjoy,
