Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera ?

I have a message that states that my card is locked. How can I get this off?


Answers :

SD memory cards have a tiny tab on one side of the card to unlock and lock the card.
If that does not work then the card may be faulty, try first removing camera batteries to reset camera, and then replace the card.
Hi try to reset ur camera...To do such reset, turn on the camera and hold the menu button down for longer than 5 seconds. A message should hopefully come up on your LCD asking if you want to reset the camera. Select Yes...
thank u!!!
