    My wife's w580i phone gets the same "insert smart chip" code which resets when I take out the simm card and put it back in. This solution does not last long (less than 2 hours yesterday). Is the simm card slot going faulty or the the card itself?

I made a video to show you how to insert it properly.

make sure to push it in so that it clicks, then it should stay.

sorry about my crazy cat..

I took out the smart chip by mistake now i put it bac in and the phone keeps telling me to insert smart chip..Help


The memory card might not have clicked into the slot , so remove and check the direction youhave inserted the micro sd card. Remove and push it to CLICK on to the latch , Now it mut be detected to open the files present.

I got my lg View from a friend and when i put a sim card in it says Insert Smartchip


Cut a small piece of cardboard or credit card plastic similar in shape to -- but just a bit smaller than -- the smart chip. Place the piece on top of the smart chip. Simultaneously slide both the smart chip and the piece of cardboard/plastic into the smart chip slot. Make certain you are inserting the smart chip with the proper end inserted first and with the contacts uncovered by the extra piece (On the LG Vu, the smart chip contacts will face down and the missing corner will be showing on the outside of the slot when the card is inserted properly.). If that doesn't do the trick -- see your cell phone provider and/or get a new phone.

Says smartchip rejected


Hi

remove the sim card from the phone and clean the sim card slot with a cotton wool dabbed in methylated spirit and insert the sim back into the slot,put it on and test it.

If this does not work then you should replace the sim card holder.a repairer can help you with that.

Cheers

smart chip means the SIM card.

try cleaning the metallic part of the SIM card with a cloth and the metal connectors on the phone with cotton bud etc.

Put it back and try again.

If not working grab another SIM card (working - friend's etc) to test.

If still not working, send to service centre.
If working for other SIM card then replace your own SIM card.

It is possible to put the sim card in backwards.  My daughter did and when we turned it around I no longer got the "smart chip" error message.

attempt to take the SIM card out and gently wipe it off (pay especial detail to the copper connectors on the under-side.) after that, give a gentle blow to the recieving area for the sim on the phone and place the sim back in the phone, power up, and hopefully this problem will be solved. this issue occurs often to myself and this seems to be a very simple solution.

On the top where the latch closes on the chip take it and put a curve in it to where it bows up. Mine did the same thing after i did that it worked fine.

Insert Smartchip


You have to insert the smart card all the way in on these phones. You can use a pen cap or something to push it all the way in there until it goes all the way in and click and stays there. Then it will not say " insert smart chip" anymore.
