Question about Canon PowerShot SX110 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

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 LOCKED. The 16MB SD card that came with the camera works fine in all aspects (formatting, taking pictures, etc) but it only fits around 5 pics.

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.

To delete an individual photo, while playing back the photo press the trashcan button located just above the control dial. To delete all photos on a memory card, format the card by using the Format command in the Setup menu.

Your older camera can only work with 2GB or smaller standard SD cards. It is not capable of recognizing the newer format 4GB or higher SDHC cards. Fortunately, old format 2GB SD cards are relatively inexpensive these days, and may be purchased on Amazon if your local store no longer carries them.

Canon powershot sx 110 is memory card error


If you know you still have pictures on this card then, take it out of the camera and put it in a computer, If you can see the pictures copy them then Format the card.

If you can't see any pictures try to use a free recovery software like Recuva (just google it to find where to download). Once the pictures recovered, format your card.

It the camera still shows file error, the card is certainly damaged.

Memory card error message


Cards are coming in different formats and it might be possible that you brought a card which is not suitable or functional with your camera. The other reason could be that we are having options to lock our memory card in digital camera and you might have taken out your earlier card without unlocking it. The system might be broken from inside and this could be a reason that you are still getting a message that memory card is locked. It seems possible based on problem you are sharing.

First see if the camera will work without the memory card installed. Then format the internal memory using the camera's setting as described in the manual.

Then turn OFF the camera and insert the sd card. Turn on and reformat the card too.

Make sure you have NEW batteries or sometimes things go flakey.

I have lost my manual for my Canon Powershot SX110 IS. Until I replace the manual, can you tell me how to delete pictures from the camera after I have uploaded them? Thank you!


Sure. The fast way is to format the memory card. As soon as you are SURE all your pics are downloaded, disconnect the camera and do a format. Fast and painless. Its good to format a camera occasionally anyway. No error checking. Even Locked photos are erased!!

I keep getting an memory card error message on my canon PowerShot


try doing a format with the camera. there should be an icon of a wrench in the menu--in this sub menu you will see "format." this action will erase anything on the card. i actually had the same problem with a canon camera, and this worked for me. Sometimes new flash cards are not compatible off the shelf--they need to be formatted. You should have at least flash cards to be sure card is not defective. Let me know if this helps!
