    I just got my camera yesterday and was trying to learn how to use it. I took one picture and then the camera showed "Card Locked" and will not let me take any more pictures. I have moved the little switch down and up and neither way will release the locked message. I tried using the card in my other camera and it worked just fine. Can you please help me??

Memory card error message on a canon powershot A700


On an SD card there is a switch at the side which can be moved to protect the card contents (locked) or permit writing to the card (unlocked). Just move this to the unlocked position.

I have a card locked message


You need to unlock your card. If you take the card out of the camera you will see a little notch on one side of the card. Move the little notch and your card will be unlocked. The reason for the card being able to be locked is so that if you have important stuff on there you can lock it so nothing can be changed.

My Canon PowerShot SX110IS shows "Card Locked!" on the screen even though the memory card is not locked.


I am having a similar problem. It worked fine. Took pictures in AM. By PM I received the same message. The memory card is NOT LOCKED, yet it is reported as so.

"Card Locked"


Hi!
There's a small switch on the memory card reader inside the camera which detects that the card is locked. Most likely this switch is broken. You can try to point it with needle or something but I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair to a local repair shop or Canon service center.

Locked memory card


Hi there,

Your camera is telling you the lock switch on the card is locked.

Take the card out of your camera and look on the side. There will be a little switch. One side of the switch says locked and the other side says unlocked. Move the switch from the locked position to the unlocked position and it will work for you.

Card Lock, when the card is not locked.


Solution,
Wrap the Camera with the purchese receipt, and bring it to the store you bought it from. They will send it back to Canon to be fixed. Hopefully it happened within a year from the purchesing date, so you will be fully covered by the manufacure warranty.

Good luck.
