Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ4 black - memory card locked

\015 My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ4 black keeps saying "The memory card is locked" whenever I turn on the camera. I don't know why it's saying this all of a sudden. I'm unable to delete pictures because it won't allow me to use any of the camera's functions.Is there any way to fix this?\015

Answers :

Remove the SD card and slide the lock switch on it to the unlocked position. If it's already there then slide it fully to locked and then fully back again.

If this fails then you need to try another SD card to see whether it's a camera fault. If the camera is at fault then there's nothing more you can do other than to return the camera to Panasonic for repair.
