Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A470 Digital Camera ?

Card locked Showing card locked! .Camera has new batteries.

Answers :

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one side. It needs to be toward the contacts to be unlocked. If it's already there, slide it fully the other direction and then back. If that doesn't work, try using a different card. If that doesn't work, then you may have a problem with the mechanism inside the camera.

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.

Card Locked! It is definitely NOT the lock tab. This is my sisters camera. She has used this card for a while. She took it out to try out a card I gave her and when she put the original back in the camera, it says "Card Locked!" whenever anything that would alter its contents is attempted. I have tested this card in my own camera and it works and I tried my card in her camera and that works. Why is this one card suddenly showing up to this one camera as locked?

The best solution is to get all the data off of the card then remove the card ... its easier to just replace the card.....but you can try to fix it your self if u think u can simply take a pair of pliers and remove the tab make sure that the sl ... Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera
