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.

Cannot take a picture--message: "your card is


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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

My camera says my memory card is locked but the button on the side is not locked how do i retrieve my pictures i have a canon powershot a480


Issue: [Memory card locked] message appears on the screen.
Solution: Change the memory card lock switch to the normal setting

The SD card has a lock switch to prevent existing data from being erased. To record images or movies this switch must be in the normal (non lock) position. Different brands of SD memory cards may identify this switch differently. Regardless the procedure should be the same. Please remove the card from the camera and ensure that the switch is not in the locked position. sdcardlocked.jpg

You should be able to retrieve photos, but not writing or erasing if the switch is switched to write protect.

If it's not functioning correctly, the camera may need service at Canonusa.com.

Message card is locked


Usually, the write protection is on the memory card itself.
You should power off the camera, take out the memory card and move the little switch on it's side to disable the write protection.

Good luck,
Pelu.

The card is locked appears on screen when SD card is inserted


Is it possible for you to use some tweezers and adjust the very small lever inside the camera's card bay? It may be stuck thus telling the camera the card is locked.

My digital camara will not save pictures. Messages appear.


If you are using SD memory card, it can be locked. Take out your memory card, on the left side there's a switch. Turn switch up and try again. Hope this will work.

Message: "Card Locked!"


There is probably a tiny switch on your SD or MMC card. Switch it back to r/w.
