Here is a little diagram for that lock so you have it in the correct position to take your pictures. You do need to be careful not to twist the card while inserting it in the camera because it will push that switch into the lock position again.
Here is the best view I have of the switch and SD card it's shown in the unlock position and lock is down away from the gold contacts. After the diagram I also have more instructions on what to do with your memory card.

I've tried for several minutes to locate a PDF manual download with out success. What I'm suggesting you do once the card lock s in the correct position is that you format the memory card. The sequence should be in your set up. Format the card not delete Format the card in the camera not the computer the two programmings don't work together

Memory card locked


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 putting a Lexar Multi-Use 16 GB SDHC memory card in my Canon Powershot A540 I get Memory Card Error message as well Card Locked message. Have tried unlocking it by the slide on side of card, is t


It's a lost cause. The A540 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them. You need to stay with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

My card is locked, how do i undo?


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here.

My camera shows that my card is locked. How do I unlock it? Thank you!


Your memory card has been write protected.This can be very easily fixed.
  1. Turn off cam.
  2. Take out the mem. card. (it's probably located near the battery. press down on it and release it. it will pop out.)
  3. Slide the small switch on the side of the card to the position marked with an unlocked padlock.
  4. Put card back in and turn on cam. Done. that should fix it.

Why does it say memory card error on the screen


Hi there, For few reason camera showing memory card error.
1. Memory card damaged.
2. your memory card finished is life time storage memory.
3 . virus infected.
4. If your memory card storage capacity more than camera support card then its also show to you. For example your camera support maximum 2 GB card, but your try to use more than 2 GB memory card.
I suggest your remove the memory card and scan by updated antivirus. After that, if not working then fomat it and try.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Memory card error.


SanDisk is a manufacturer of memory cards. SD card means 'Secure Digital'. There are many types of memory cards, SD being the most popular. You should be able to format your memory card in-camera. Insert your memory card into your camera, making sure that the little switch on the side of the card is in NOT in the 'locked' position. Then go into your camera menu and select 'format memory card'. After that you should be ready to take pictures...

I had the same problem with a card in my power shot A540. on the side of the card there is a little white slide-bar. Push that bar the opposite direction of where it is and see if that works. Good luck!

Memory card locked


I had the same problem and it took me forever to figure it out! On my memory card there is a tiny slider that slides up and down. Mine was slid to "lock" I just slid it back and it was no longer locked! Sounds simple enough now that you know, huh?
