The record is already in an open state in the background window..
Try commit record before you open the card window.
This means you have record lock on some other open window.
Record lock is enacted when you have the cursor in a field and begin to edit the data in the field.
Its not the only way to cause lock.
You will have to figure out which window has caused record lock and release the lock.
