Hi,

First of all i would like to inform the solution which is universally applicable for this message :-

1. Make sure that the lock on the memory card is OK.
2. Reformat the memory card from the PC.
3. Replace the memory card.

If these 3 solutions didn't work, read further.

This is a common problem reported on Canon rebel XSI models.

There are not any firmware updates from Canon that will cover a card error problem.Since you have tried,without success to format a number of cards,a hardware problem is most likely.System board will most likely be in need of replacement on this model.The most cost effective and fastest turnaround repair route will be to contact mfg for a repair estimate(flat labor,part availability and alignment capability).

Contact Canon factory service at (630)250-6500

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How do i sent my canon e0s card write protect to unlock


Look at the 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.

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.

Have canon rebel xs , getting card write protected error


If this is a Canon Rebel XS there is no memory card in a 35mm film camera If this is a Rebel XSi then generally this error is caused by the memory card lock switch here is a diagram to show the correct orientation of this switch

Also after you have unlocked the card you should format the memory card in the camera it is going to be used in. Failing to do so may produce other errors and possibly corrupt pictures and files Formatting clean the memory card to produce optimum performance between the camera and card

My Canon Rebel XSi screen will not turn on even though the battery is fully charged.


Does it take pictures? If it does, the display may be off, try pressing the DISP button a few times. If not, the camera may need to be reset, the battery may be faulty, or the camera may need to be serviced.

When I try to take a picture on my rebel eos 450D, I get a "card write protected" message and I can't take pictures. How do I unprotect it?


SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting the card from writing. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, try sliding it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.
