Having problems with your Canon IXUS 860 IS Digital Camera ?

Card is locked of CANON IXUS 960IS

\015 I have canon IXUS 860IS and the card is locked...how do i unlock it?\015

Answers :

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.
