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.

Menu screen nothing but lines.

Turn camera off, remove battery's and sd card. With everything out turn it to the on position for about 2-3. After 2-3 minutes put batterys back in while on the on position. Once he says no card or no memory turn the camera off put sd card back in and test the camera.

How to unlock a photo in camara

The protect function allows a user to protect a picture from accidental deletion. To unprotect a picture on your camera, scroll to the protected picture that you want to delete, then press the Menu button (the button to the right of the Play button.) Scroll down the menu and you should come to an option that allows you to Protect/Unprotect the picture. Since your picture is currently protected, deselect that option. You should then be able to delete the picture normally.

Alternatively, you could also format the memory card, however this deletes ALL photos and data you have on the memory card. If you are trying to completely clear the memory, this is the best way. After turning on your camera, simply press the Menu button, scroll to Setup, then scroll down to Format. Select Format, it will ask you if you want to format the memory card, or the camera's built-in memory. Format whichever one you want to clear, if you are using a memory card then your pictures are stored on the memory card. It will take a few seconds to format.

Hope this helps.

Hello beach.... remove the sd card and check the perimeter of the card to find the locking mechanism. If the card is in the lock position, move it to unlock. Then reinsert the card, turn on the camera and go into the menu. Find format. Format the SD card and then it should be good. Joe

I have a message that states that my card is locked. How can I get this off?

SD memory cards have a tiny tab on one side of the card to unlock and lock the card.
If that does not work then the card may be faulty, try first removing camera batteries to reset camera, and then replace the card.

Cant take photos and the LCD screen says "Memory card is locked. Slide lock to 'write' position"

I don't own this camera but My guess is your memory card is in a LOCK SETTING you need to move the memory card to unlocked " wrirte " so you memory card isn't locked.....
Step 1 remove the card from you're camera
Step 2 there is a small little side on the side of the memory chip move that to the unlock position.
step 3 insert the card and start shooting!

The memory card is locked

If you are using an SD or MMC card, check if the lock button (on the side of the card - a tiny plastic that you can slide) is on the LOCK position. Slide it to UNLOCK position. If it's already in UNLOCK position, slide it to LOCK , then UNLOCK position.

Good luck and have a nice day!
