Spray dry air or contact cleaner into card slot to remove any debris...work card in and out several times should have a push-push action...pushing in card should slightly spring back...push again card should pop out a little.
Sounds like latch that catches and holds card is broke or stuck...hope it's stuck!

I cannot format the memory card using my Canon Powershot SX110 IS Digital Camera. The option is greyed out in the menu and an error message saying that the card is locked is on the screen. THE CARD IS NOT...


You don't give any details about the card that is not working in your camera. I suspect it is not an SD card but an SDHC (high capacity) card. "SD" cards larger than about 1GB are actually SDHC cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

If this is the case, try a card of 1GB or less. This will hold plenty of pictures, 60 times as many as the 16MB card. If you really need more space then just carry a spare 1GB card and swap when you fill the first one.

When I put my memory card in in my camera it says it is a protected card and no button fixes it. My camera is fujifilm finepix Z20fd and the memory card is a SanDisk 1GB.


Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Hello

OK, if you already tied to format the card, the problem might just be with the camera. Have a look and see if the card works in another camera, if it does, you can try his.

My memory card is locked


Good day!

Locked..You mean write protected?I think there are instructions on how to unlock it.

Anyway, Try this:

There is a slide unlock/lock switch in the side of SD card. Its up and down switch that on and lock the card.

If you're using a mini card try to insert it to standard SD adapter.\

SD card locked for Samsung SL202


Hi,

This used to happen occassionaly with my canon camers. Just use a peice of scotch tape or if you have one a small dab of hot glue to stop it from sliding.

Hope this helps FixYa,
