    Hi.
    My latest "Senior moment" has resulted in me leaving the Memory card ? from the camera,a Panasonic Lumix TZ 5 in the pooter. So,off i go taking pics and up on the screen comes "Memory full". I then ask the son in law,if he could erase some of the earlier pics,so i could carry on,after a while he said,"Have you got the m/card in ?" . "Of course" says i,on looking into ...no card,oops, i then said," I have put it in upside down". My cover was blown,we all had a good laugh.
    Now then,on getting home i put the m/card in,and now have the sign "Memory Locked ",so,if anyone can let me know in..."Easy speak for numpties",how i can "Unlock" this thingamy jig,i will be very gratefull.
    Thanks in advance for any help on this matter,i thought this camera was "Idiot proof".... Guess NOT.

    Take the card out at that lets you access the pictures you took on internal memory. Transfer by cable.

    I suggest you use the PC to make sure all photos from the card are secure then format the card in the PC.

    Some memory cards have a tiny tab on the side which can be slid into a lock position to protect the contents. On an SD card it's on the left as you look at the label.
