The microUSB card will not eject

0 votes

I bought a turnkey kit, inserted my microSD card as instructed on the quick start guide and 2 out of the 3 drivers installed. Since there was an error in processing the cards I decided to flash an image to the card and retry it. I tried pressing in the card until I hear a click and there is no click and I can't seem to get the card to eject. Any pointer on how to get it out?

It is a push-push connector, so usually you would always push to eject. It is a similar mechanism as for some ballpoint pens (push once to get the tip out, push again to retract it). Maybe your card is getting stuck by some friction on eject. You can use tweezers to carefully pull it out, just be very gentle and do no pull too hard. If it looks like it is not coming out, maype push it all the way in once more and then try to pull it out with the tweezers. It should get better after a few in/out cycles. Sometimes the connectors get a bit sticky during soldering but this corrects with more use.

This worked for me. I have SMD tweezers that I used and it solved my issues.
