Having problems with your Pentax Optio M20 Digital Camera ?

I cant get my pentax optio M20 unlocked

\015 My camera will not stop telling me the memory card is locked. \015\012I've moved the tap up and down multiple times on the memory card and it still says it is locked. \015\012What do I do now?\015

Answers :

Do you have an SD card? If so you need to remove the card from the camera and look closely at the front of the card. You will see there is the little grey tab slider button on the left side. If it is pushed down into the locked position then you'll need to slide it up to unlock it. Then place the SD card back into your camera and all should be well..... Good Luck and Hope this helps you!
