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.

Memory card locked How do I unlock it


Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional troubleshooting tips for this problem.

Canon A620 LCD shows "memory card locked" for each card I insert


This worked for me!  I have the Canon Powershot SD780 IS and although my card WAS NOT locked, the camera "malfunctioned" and the switch in the camera needed to be gently pushed back IN, not DOWN on my specific camera type.  This is great, I was just going to go out and buy another camera today!  Thanks for the post Stephan!

Memory Card Locked The card works fine in my other Canon Camera, but not in my A620. I've switched out the cards and nothing works in my A620, but they all work in my other Canon. Memory Card Locked is...


I'm assuming the slide switch on the side of the card is in the correct position. In order for a card to work in a particular camera, it must first be formatted in that camera. This completely erases it so download any pictures still on it to your computer first.

Card locked


Hi...

If your card is locked try to remove the card. See if there is a small button there and slide it to unlock the card. Put your card back to your DG cam.


Good luck.

Hi my canon A620 camera - I have purchased two 4gb memory cards and both say they are locked. Is this the camera, are the cards too big a memory. thanks for your help.


Canon doesn't typically publish information regarding the top capacity for memory cards, especially since new cards come out all the time and they'd have to continually rewrite their manuals.


I would, however, suggest getting a couple of 2gb cards instead of a single 4gb card. Not only is there less of a question of compatibility with 2gb cards, but if you misplace one, you still have a backup. A 2gb card will hold several hundred shots at full resolution and the lowest compression, so you won't have to worry about running out of space.

Hope this helps!

I put a brand new SanDisk SDHC 4 GB memory card in and it says "memory card error; card is locked".


I also own an A620, but unfortunately I also learned the hard way that SDHC cards are not compatible with this camera. The A620 was designed before the newer SDHC format came out, thus although they look exactly the same, your camera will never work with these cards. Your camera uses standard SD cards (2GB or less). There are some standard 4GB SD cards, but they are very rare these days, and costly.

Canon PowerShot A620 says no memory card when there is a memory card installed. Tried two different cards and both not working. Card is not full or locked. Card door closes all the way. Owner's manual's...


Your camera has a board with the SD card slot board and electronics to record and retrieve images. This board can be replaced and should cost about $100 to repair.

Says card is locked but it is not


If there are any pictures on the card, I would back them up onto a PC and then try formatting the card in your camera to see if that helps. You should be able to read off the card even though your camera wonlt write to it.

Locked memory card


Hi there,

Your camera is telling you the lock switch on the card is locked.

Take the card out of your camera and look on the side. There will be a little switch. One side of the switch says locked and the other side says unlocked. Move the switch from the locked position to the unlocked position and it will work for you.
