My camera says the my memory card is locked.?? i dont no how to unlock it My Ixus 70 says my card is locked, but the card is NOT locked (button on the side of the card is in unlock position). The came


Oops. The little latch on the side in the unlock position, should engage a switch in the camera, indicating the memory card is not writ protected. It is not an electrical switch doing something in the memory card. But is the switch in the camera is defect, you get the same result. If someone once tried to press in a memory card, the wrong way around, this could have been the cause of a damaged switch. Just check the memory card slot, of nothing is in the cardholder, blocking the little switch from working correct. Sure the switch is in the up position, like in the picture? 25288825-qj532vtjsqner5bmetfl14fj-5-0.png

Card locked


Couple of things could be the problem one is that the card is actually locked and I'll include a diagram so you know where it's suppose to be and the other is the card may need formatting. The memory card when new needs to be formatted to the camera it is to be used in and after each time pictures are downloaded to the computer. Formatting cleans the memory card and makes it ready for new pictures to be loaded at optimum speed.

Here is the lock position diagram. Lock is in the direction of the arrow unlock is up see small circle

I didn't get a memeory card with my new camera.


First, new cameras don't come with memory cards anymore. Make sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position. Then, format the card in the camera.

Memory card problem


Hi and welcome to FixYa.

I'm not sure about your particular instance, but this can happen if you change up cameras or use a card reader.

As for being unable read the memory card, sometimes the card can be switched off by accident. Turn off the camera and remove the card. Look at the side of the card and there will be a little switch. One end says locked (or shows a little picture of a locked lock) and the other end says unlocked (or, shows a little picture of an unlocked lock). Just move the switch to unlocked.
Try that, and let me know with a comment if that doesn't work, othewise, thanks for coming to FixYa!

Make sure the camera is off and pull out the SD card. Look on the side of the card. You will see a little switch. One side says locked (or shows a little picture of a locked lock) the other side says unlocked (or shows a little picture of an unlocked lock). Make sure the switch is in the unlocked position and reinsert it properly into the camera.

Remove SD card, then whilst card is removed, delete all pictures that may still be stored in cameras 'internal' memory (usually just a few) then replace SD card. Should be unlocked now?.

Be sure that the Lock switch on the memory card in your camera is set to unlock. If it is unlocked then try and see if you can reformat the card with the camera.

Unlock card


If the card is locked, you could the steps below:

- Turn off camera
- Remove memory card
- Take a look on the switch of the memory card itself
* If it's at the TOP = card is UNLOCKED
* If it's at the BOTTOM = card is LOCKED

- So, you just have to make sure that the switch is at the top
for the memory card to be UNLOCKED

After doing that, you just have to put back the memory card to your camera and turn on the camera. Try to check if this works.
