EOS 7D MarkII CARD IS WRITE PROTECTED

The lock light flashes and when I switch it to the left it will not stop flashing. I cannot take any pictures because it tells me the card 2 is write protected. 🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️

The little sensor microswitch that is in the card slot is stuck. You might be able to use a toothpick or something to wiggle it loose. Or, send it in to Canon.

Or the little sliding switch on the side of the SD card itself is in the locked position.
