Getting SD Memory Card Locked message on a380

Recommended Posts

I started getting SD Memory Card Locked message today on my a380.

I tried a different card, taking out the battery for a bit, just using AC adapter, but still getting the message.

The other card (Memory Stick PRO Duo) still works.

Any fixes or suggestions?

Check the little tab on the card. It can be used to lock the card to prevent accidental erasure.it slides to lock and unlock.

That's the first thing I checked, but the card(s) I tried were not locked.

Put the card in your computer, save

their contents, then discard them. 

    

Back when, we did not use film that 

had been in a fire or otherwise gotten 

ruined, even if it appeared to be OK. 

Same principle.

Sounds to me that the problem is in the card slot on your camera - most likely a broken or dirty contact. I think it will be nigh impossible for a layman to get into it for a look and, if needed, a proper clean but a least give it a try with a powerful blower. If that fails then consider a quote from an accredited repair shop.

Did you try the switch? If the MS card works but SD cards don't that would be consistent with the switch being set to MS.

 

If that's not the issue try cleaning the card slot with a long brush and a blower. Giotto has them, for instance.

 

No point in having it repaired. Buying another used camera would be cheaper.
