Hi,

From the description of the problem, it seems that the 'write protection switch' on the memory card is moved to the 'Locked' position.

To unlock the card, kindly remove the memory card fom the camera and slide the write protection switch on the side of the memory card to the unlocked position. (See attached images)

Memory Card


SD 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.

Look at your memory card. 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 that doesn't do it, try another card.

Again…I can not indicate where to turn the indicator button to the "write" position in order to unlock my memory card


Take the memory card out of the 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.

Camera is saying "Memory card is locked. Slide lock to "write" position."


If you remove the card from the camera, there is a little switch on the SD Card. There is typically a label that shows which direction is locked. If not, switch it to the opposite side. This should solve the problem. Otherwise, there could be a problem with your card. I hope this solves the problem.
