Inserting/removing uSD card problem

Post by fmk »

Is there a trick to it?

The first time since I got my iA10 I tried inserting a uSD card. I pushed it in until it was flush with the case. Nothing. Tried pushing it a little further inside with my fingernail. Still nothing, and now I couldn't get it out. Shut the fitlet down and disconnected power. Used a paperclip to push it a little further. I'm used to a little click noise when the card seats, but I didn't hear anything. Pushed again, and it may have moved back out a little, but not enough to remove it. Finally used some extremely small surgical tweezers to grip it and pull it out.

For my fitlet-iA10, the plastic slot in the panel was a bit too small. Could not reliably
install and remove a microSD card. So I took off the front panel and on the inside, used
a philips head screw driver to make the inside of the slot slightly larger.

Now the microSD cards install normally. I definantly hear and feel a click when it's
properly inserted.

Of course, since the front panel is a bit thick, getting the card out without a tool, (like
a fingernail or nail file), is a bit hard. But, I'd rather this, than have the card stick out.

fitlet incorporates a standard push-push microSD socket. It should click into place on pushing and spring out when pushed again.
If the mechanism fails on your fitlet you may RMA it for replacement.

I tried it some more and found that it does work. There is a lot of free movement up and down when inserting the card and it is easy to be mis-aligned and miss the socket. That's the problem I was having. With care I can now get it to work properly.
