Having problems with your Polaroid i832 Digital Camera ?

How do you get rid of card locked message on Polaroid i832 when there isnt even a card in it , just internal memory

\015 Just bought the camera, inserted a sd card and got above message... I dont even have a card in mine. just the internal memory and I am getting the card is locked . what now????????????????/\015

Answers :

It's likely that the locking switch inside the camera's card slot is stuck. If you look inside the slot on the side of the slot where the SD card slide switch would be, you'll see a glint of gold color on the side. This is the camera's lock/unlock switch. The other glint's of gold that you may see at the far end of the slot are the reader's connectors (ignore those).

Somehow, the locking switch is making contact and has become stuck in the locked position. With a plastic toothpick, or other skinny NON-METALLIC item, tap against this switch to see if you can jar open the contact to its normal unlocked position. Also try blowing compressed air at it, as some gunk may have worked its way in there, jamming it closed. Occasionally, reinsert the SD card to see if the issue has been corrected.

If repeated tries fail, it may be time to consider opening the camera to force open this switch (not recommended unless you have some familiarity with electronics). In this case please see the following (xscrewdriver, hope you don't mind me referencing your blog):

I have a Lumix DMC-FS3 camera and if I don't put a memory card in it, I can't take any pictures because it says "built-in memory is full".

When I plug the camera into my computer, I can playback pictures. So I'm very confused as to what is on my internal
