I have a Canon A650 that was displaying a "card locked!" message. First, take out the card and check small the lock tab on the side of the card itself. Then, try a different SD card in the same camera. I tried an old 256 MB card from an older camera. I still got the "card locked" message. When I put the 1 GB card I was struggling with in my old Nikon, it read fine. So at this point I knew it was my camera and not the card. What finally worked for me was very gently pressing down on the metal flap inside the card chamber that detects the lock with the tip of a straightened paperclip. Hope this helps.

SD and Mini SD memory cards has a small slide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memory card or add photos to the SD card. Slide the switch from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position, which is furthest away from the contacts.

WHY WONT SANDISK SDHC WORK IN MY POWERSHOT A420


Your camera is designed to work with SD or MMC cards.
SD and SDHC cars look similar. But older cameras cannot recognize SDHC cards.
Use a SD card instead. (I know, the capacity is the problem!)

I'm not able to connected my camera canon A420 with my PC and the 2 problem is that it is showing card locked wen i start the camera how to solve this problems


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

Memory card error - can't format card


If it is an SDHC card your camera is too old to support it.  You need to get an older-style SD card.

Take without a memory card


No, the A420 does not have internal memory. The card that came with the camera is only intended to allow you to try the camera to make sure it works. You should really purchase a new SD card. New ones these days are literally capable of holding hundreds if not thousands of pictures, and cost less than $7. Here's an example:

Canon PowerShot A420 Digital Camera. When I make a movie how come there is no sound, how do I turn the sound on?


The Canon PowerShot A420 has NO MICROPHONE. That's the reason why you don't have sound on your movies.

The Canon PowerShot A430 does have a microphone! So with that camera you can make movies with sound. You just can't do that with the A420. Sorry!

If you are using the PowerShot A420 it cannot capture sound i'm afraid!
