On the side of the memory card there is a switch...you can move it to lock or unlock...i had a card tht went through the washer machine, and it was stuck on lock...but if you put a thin piece of tape over were the switch should be it should fix it. (if it is too thick it may get stuck in the camera.)

My camera wont take pix says slide lock to write position, when I do that it display "CHA" don't know what that means and still can't take pix


CHA also means the card cannot be used for other reasons. F.i. the card can be damaged. Try to format the card. That is, when you could use the card before. If you bought a new card, Make sure it is not a SDXC card, because your camera only allows MMC, SD and SDHC cards. If nothing helps, also look in the memory card holder, if nothing strange is in there, or the sensor that looks for the lock, is functioning correct. If you don't know how, please visit or contact a Nikon-Authorised service centre.

Memory card blocked


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.


Memory Sticks have a slide switch on the back, near the contacts. Slide the switch away from the "LOCK" position.

The card, or memory chip in camera is locked, and i dont know how to unlock it, so now i cant take pictures, or upload my pictures, or even delete photos,i just need to know how to unlock my camera.


Hi,
This used to happen when the write protect lock on in the memory card. Refer the manual to see how to remove the memory card.
After removing the memory card, unlock the write protect tab as shown in the fig. d7656e6.jpg

Locked memory card...


hi crazytami,

the memory card on your camera is SD. on the side of the card you should be able to see a whitwe toggle switch, try to put it to the left, then try it again on the camera, if not, then try the switch on the right then try it on the camera.

one of them should unlock the memory card. if not, please let me know.

regards,

Have fujifilm finepix f40fd. protected card shows. wont clear


I had the same problem with a Fufifilm camera. When I looked closely at the memory card I noticed a little white sliding button on the left hand side. When it is in the down position the card is locked or protected. Just slide the button up and put it back in your camera and it should work.

Card locked


Dear codger19:

If your camera gives you "card locked" error messages with several cards and you KNOW that the cards are indeed not locked via the sliding lock mechanism, then your camera needs to be sent in for service as it has developed and electrical communications problem within the memory card control function.

I would first however try a hard reset by resetting your camera to the default settings, removing the battery and memory card for two minutes, and then replacing them. Retest the cards for the error message. If it still occurs then call 1-800-828-8080 for your options.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

Memory card locked


I noticed that this camera does not work well with cheaper memory cards. The only brand that works without fail is the SanDisk brand.

Memory card


Sounds like to me that the card may be corrupt or the data on it is. I would suggest taking the card to walmart or another store with a picture kiosk machine and try to copy the pictures to a CD then once that is done format the card in your camera.
