Had an experience with my camera today that was rather puzzling to solve, so I'll share it on the basis it may help someone in a similar situation.
When I turned on the camera a message appeared in the LCD screen saying 'memory card protected'....this had the affect of locking-up the camera completely.
After much faffing about I found that there is a little lever situated on the left hand side of the memory card, this must have been moved whist removing & replacing the card....so something worth checking if you experience a similar thing.
I suppose its purpose is to prevent valued pics being deleted by mistake.
