Remove the SD memory card from the camera. Slide the tiny slide switch on the side of card to the other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. That should do it. No charge :-)

My camera says card locked but I have no memory card in the camera. I can not take any pictures


The camera won't take photos without a card unless that model has a menu setting to allow that option (though nothing is stored). Put a different card in the camera and format it. If it doesn't see the card try formatted it first in the computer and then format it in the camera before you try shooting.

Even after you did format these cards in the PC, you better chose to format the cards in the camera you want to use it.
And if you have checked the cards on the memory card, please also check the contacts in the camera.

Canon g9 just started getting card locked error. I checked, the card is not locked - also tried different cards. It works sometimes. Tried to reset the settings and received "busy" message.


Check the right strap lug and see if it is loose. It is a well know problem with the G9 that the screws that hold it onto the top cover come lose and fall into the camera, causing many different problems is they short out parts of the circuit

Memory cards are locked but the card is not locked


It's unusual that an A95 would report "card locked" as it uses a compact flash card which is incapable of being locked. Please verify the model of your camera, and the card that it uses.
In the mean time, I'll assume that actually own a different camera that uses SD cards. If so, please see this link for troubleshooting tips for SD card locked problems.
But if you indeed own an A95 with compact flash, the problem may possibly be caused by bent flash card pins inside the camera card slot (take a look inside using a flashlight). If bent pins are found, then see this link for a possible home fix.

Memory card won't format on Kodak Easy Share camera


Make sure that your memory stick is not set on not to write. There is a white slide on them showing a lock and unlock symbol. Put it on the unlock symbol.

Camera turns off


1. Try the camera with a different CF card. 2. Try the camera with a different battery. Defective components don't always fail in expected ways. The battery might have enough power to "sometimes" operate some functions but not consistently. The CF card may be malfunctioning is some way that draws too much power from the camera & at times causes it to "lock-up" or shut down. If you don't have another battery or CF to try, you may be able to bring your camera into a camera store where they may have & let you try 1 of each on your camera to see if it fixes the problem. They may do this in the hopes of selling you either a new battery, CF or camera depending on which proves defective.

"Memory card is locked"


This error message means that the memory card is write-protected. To take a picture, turn off the camera. Then insert a new card or change the storage location to internal memory
