The SETUP menus should allow you to unlock the card. Alternatively, re-formatting will clear the card and start anew, or you can put a new card in (they are cheap)

Eject the actual memory card, it has a 'sliding' lock on the side.  Unlock it and reinsert into the camera.

Write protect or to unlock pic to delete them


Remove the card from the camera and look for the lock tab. On the image below, it is a yello tab located near the top of the left edge on the long side. This one is shown in the unlocked position. Yours is likely down - at the locked position. Simply push it up and reinsert into your camera and take pictures.

Powershot s3 is memory card locked


Look at your memory card. SD/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.

My samsung camera wont let me take pics or videos b/c it says "CARD LOCKED" everytime i try to take pics


When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock or not protected.

I have the polaroid i830..cameras locked i think


Remove the memory card from the camera (it is next to the batteries). On the side of the card is a little switch, set this to unlocked. You will then be able to write to the card again.

Many times you need to format the memory card in order to use it... have you formatted the memory card? There's a menu on the camera to do this.

If you're using a card like an SD card, there's a very small slide switch that actually locks the card so no one can over write your pics. Find the slide switch and move it the other way, and that should unlock the card. You'll still have to format.
