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 tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact 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.

WHY IS a11001s DISPLAYING CARD NOT LOCKED


Do you mean it's displaying "Card Locked"?

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 turn on my camera to shot a picture, it will not let me. Instead a screen pops up that says "card write protected." What does this mean?


Look at your memory card. 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.
If this doesn't do it, try a different card.

Canon power shot a1000is - displaying "card lock", tried moving slide from one side to other, still did not fix it?


Your camera uses SD cards and these have a very small locking switch on the left side near the top (as you look at it). It very often gets switched to lock without the owner being aware of it. Just slide the the tiny switch up to the top of the slot and your problem should be fixed.
I do not understand what you mean by , "...tried moving slide from one side to the other".

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.
