Re: memory card error, card locked



There is not a setting in the camera that locks the card.  If the lock switch is not set to lock the card, but you receive this message, try a different card.  If the error does not display with the other card, the first card needs to be replaced.  If the error still displays, then your camera may need to be repaired.


To start your repair process, you'll need to complete a Repair Request on our website.
