Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
I have a Canon Powershot A520, and its says on the screen that the memory card is locked. What should i do?
Check the little white tab on the side of the SD memory card to be sure it doesn't say "locked". If the tab is in the right position the camera will have to be repaired.

The screen on my camera says 'Memory Card Locked'. The solution is to take out the memory card and flick the switch on the side. But I can't take the memory card out- it appears to be stuck. At the same time as the screen starting to say 'Memory Card Locked' the memory card only comes out half way so I can't flick the switch. How do I solve this problem??

I have a Canon Powershot SX200 with a Simpletech 2GB memory card, after taking 185+ pictures on vacation the card says it's locked, getting a memory error.

Hi, I have a Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS. It says the memory card is locked every time I insert it even though it isn't. I tried several cards to eliminate the possibility the card was bad. I received a repair estimate at $79, because the card reading board needs to be replaced. Am I being scammed or is it a fair estimate? Is it worth it or is it better to invest in a new camera?
