Having problems with your HP Photosmart M425 Digital Camera ?

Screen says "card is locked"

\015 Can see pictures on card. Can't take more pictures. If card is taken out of camera, camera works fine but won't take pictures when card re-inserted. Every thing else about the camera works fine. There is nothing in the manual about how to unlock the card. The screen does say, in the on line share mode, that the card has to be unlocked to use this feature, but doesn't say how to unlock the card. This HP M425 has been an excellent digital camera.\015

Answers :

You have an sd card for this cam, depending on who made the card
there is a little white tab,or grey, on the side of the card, you can see that it can slide back and forth, and you should see the word lock,
just make sure the little tab is not on lock, slide it the other way.

You max card size is 2gig, and the first time you put in a new card you have to format the card with the camera.

Locked Card Does anyone know how to unlock a memory card on the Optio W20?

The screen on my camera says 'Memory Card Locked'. The solution is to take out the memory card and flick the switch on the side. But I can't take the memory card out- it appears to be stuck. At the same time as the screen starting to say 'Memory Card Locked' the memory card only comes out half way so I can't flick the switch. How do I solve this problem??
