My site collection suddenly stop working and after investigating into it I found that the 'Site Collection Quotas and Locks' under 'SharePoint Site Management ' was suddenly changed to 'Read-Only' automatically.

Can anyone please let me know how this can be triggered and set to 'Read-Only' mode.

Search for "Figure 8.10 The Additional Lock Information Box" read about the Locks

You can tell SharePoint to do certain things when quotas are hit. Such as make all read-only(Blocks additions, updates, and deletions)

Hope that helps you

Did you by any chance have any scripted backups running prior to the site becoming read only?
