If its the card, remove the card and check the lock/unlock tab on the card. Let me know if this does not work. Thanks.

Memory card locked


And you looked if the card was locked?
The 64GB card is unlocked the 32 GB card is locked. So make sure the switch is up when you see your card like these two.
When you are sure your card is unlocked, just check if all contacts of the card and in the camera are still clean, shiny, and straight. (no bent in any contact)

Locked card


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.

My Canon PowerShot A490 has an error "memory card locked"....how do I fix that, please?


Turn off the camera and take off the memory card. There is a small tab on the upper right side of the card. Just adjust that tab upwards to unlock it. Then put it back and try again.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FIxYa.

How to fix memory card locked. Canon Power Shot A490


There is usually a little slot on the memory card itself that says lock next to it, and if the card is locked nothing can be written on it. Simply take the card out and unlock it.

I need to import pictures from my laptop to my canon powershot a490 but i cant seem to? help please?!


Be sure that there is at least one picture (just take one) on the memory card. This ensures the canon folder structure is in place. Put your memory card in a card reader. Copy the files from the laptop to the memory card.


For canon, you will see subfolder on the memory card DCIM and under that another folder, something like 136CANON (the 136 could be any number). Put the pictures in that one and you should be able to see them on the canon powershot a490

Onmy canon camra its not letinf me take pictures bcause it says card locked I have a Canon power shot sx110si


Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. 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. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
