Having problems with your Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z70 Digital Camera ?

Card locked Why is my camera not letting me take pictures? It will turn on to view pictures but when I go to take them it says "The card is locked"



Answers :

Your card might have a tiny "switch" on it that you may have slid into the locked position when you were installing it. I have media for my Fuji camera that has this feature. Take the card/chip out, and see if you can find any movable bits. (I hope you figured out a solution before the December holidays.)
