Broken Micro SD Slot


#1

The Micro SD slot on my pokitto has broken. Specifically, it won’t “lock” the SD card in place; it just springs. I think the issue is what ever holds it in place when you press it in the first time is broken.

Anyone know if those sd slots are replaceable, or do I need a whole new pokitto?

Thanks!

In theory it should be possible to simply remove the spring. It would be hard to get the card out again though.
Personally I wouldn’t want to try replacing the slot myself, especially after the mess I made trying to replace the micro usb port.
Send @jonne a PM, see what he says about it.

They can be replaced and its not even a particularily difficult part to solder, because the legs are visible

If you want to try, I can send you a part
