Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.

SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

How do i unlock card


Look at your memory card. 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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

"cannon powershot sd870 wont turn on when memory


Please check the memory card with your PC and check if there are any corrupt files within. If so remvoe and format the card , Also so a virus scan and confirm that the Sd card is clean.
Now insert and check. If however the card is found in good condition in the first place then there are errors in the interface to the processor in the camera which might need a technical help from the Canon-service center.

If you are certain the card is empty, you should format / erase the card in the camera or external card reader and try again.

Good luck!

Loaded memory card in camera and it states it is locked. How do i unlock it.


I think that takes a sd card anyway it's virtually the same for all. On one side of your card right side for SD there is a little (very little) switch that slides up and down. On the SD card up is locked down is unlocked. All of the cards have them usually on an edge. Good luck if it stymies you let me know what type of card you have and I'll try and locate a diagram for you.

Have you tried formatting the card in your camera? Normally for Canons to access this function, first press menu, then select the tools menu, scroll down to the item that states your card's memory capacity and select it. Then follow the on-screen prompts for a "low-level" format.
