Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My cannon a 530 says that it has a memmory card error, and it shows memmory card locked momentarally at bottom of screen, i tried to unlock with the slide on the card itself, but that did not help. i put a new memmory card in and it shows the same. i also noticed a watch type battery next to the aa batteries, could that battery be the problem ? i have never changed that battery and this camera is several years old.

No that's not likely the problem. The new card is probably the issue, especially if it is 4GB or higher. There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

How do you get card locked off


SD and SDHC 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.

The micro sd has no lock tab to slide on the side, but the SD card adapter does. Unlock the SD card adapter, and format the micro sd card using a laptop or PC. The only way your micro sd card could be password protected is using encryption. If this is the case, formatting the card should remove the password.

How to unlock my memory card


On side of The SD card there is a little lever that slides up and down this is the protection lock. PUSH it all the way to the top. Sometimes when inserting it gets caught and will move just enough to have the camera consider it locked. So be careful when inserting it.

If this does not fix it try another SD card or reformat it.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

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.
