How do I get the card lock off - Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera


Answers :

Move the slide switch on the side of the card.
The memory card should have a small switch on the upper left side it slides from lock to unlock if this doesnt work Look in the card slot - there may be a small bit sticking out over where the card's locking switch would fit when the card's inserted.\015\012__________________

Okay I doubt this can be fixed. I accidentally slammed my camera (canon powershot SD1000 Digital Camera) in the car door. It was in my jacket pocket my jacket was tied around my waist and I was climbing into a 68 camaro convertible.
