Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera ?

My camera canoon powershot sd850 is saying card locked! I can't seem to find how to unlock it..


Answers :

Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.
