    Micro (mini) SD slot - spring not working

    Hi,

    The spring on the micro expansion slot seems to be malfunctioning. I am now left with having to use a tweezer to remove the SD card!

    Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this or does it need to be sent back for repairs?

    Thanks.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Does the card lock in when you insert it?

    You should be able to just push in on the card to release it.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Hope you are inserting the MicroSD card, the right way into it?

    If you can otherwise access the contents of the MicroSD card and yet you can not easily physically remove the card, then you may have a hardware failure on your tablet.

    Thanks Guys.

    Yes, I can access the contents on the card BUT is very difficult to remove the card (spring doesn't work!). I contacted Asus and most likely will have to send it in for repair

    Does anyone have good tips to get a quick turnaround on the repair service?

    Thanks

    Most people have reported around 10 days but it depends on your country and the repair depot you send it to.
