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.
There is a little slide switch on the side of the SD card that will lock it. It could be that it got bumped the last time it was inserted, or the memory card could be defective. I saw this happen with a SanDisk card that hadn't been removed from the camera. Removing the card and sliding the lock switch back and forth, then re-inserting finally solved the problem. It was a bit disconcerting when it happened. I would recommend that you get a replacement memory card to use if it starts to happen repeatedly.
It is a very commom comphenion,the original canon nb-4l battery often decrease its capacity and won't charging normally after 30 charge/discharge cycles or so.If you don't want to miss the important shots,get a cheap higher capacity replacement canon nb-4l battery as a spare power bank in hand.
With the camera on, have you tried pressing the DISP button once? It's the lower left button on the back of the camera. It manually turns the display on or off as desired to save batteries (you can then aim through the optical viewfinder).
