A memory card was pulled out with force and my card slot doesn't hold the cards in anymore. Is there an easy fix to take it apart and replace/repair the clips or springs that hold the card i?

    I have had it since march of 2007, I do not think they have more than 1 year warranty.



  • fourteagues Jan 07, 2009

    Yeah, send it on... cause I cannot get games like rock band 2 that stream from the card to work - i have to literally hold it in while it is read by the Wii. Any helpful sites you can pass on is appreciated!

Ram not working


Step 1:
A memory slot is a slot in your motherboard where you place your RAM (Random Access Memory) card. In layman's terms, the RAM is the "temporary memory" that the computer utilizes whenever it is turned on. If the computer cannot detect a RAM card installed in one of your memory slots, you have to troubleshoot the problem immediately.
Ensure that the problem is with the RAM slot and not the memory card. Turn off the computer, unplug all devices connected into the ports of your computer and open the computer casing. Refer to the manual of the computer to know the specific steps to follow in opening the computer casing. Remove the memory card from the RAM slot. To do this, unlock the card using both hands. Pull the card away from the slot to remove. Inspect the RAM card for any apparent physical damages. Wipe the card with a clean cloth to remove dust. Also wipe the memory slot in your motherboard. Place the RAM card back into the memory slot. Press the card into the slot until it clicks into place. Close the computer casing, connect the cables back into their respective slots and turn on the computer. Turn on the computer and see if the memory is detected. If the computer does not boot up, the RAM card is not detected by the computer. Assuming that you have two memory cards installed in the computer and the computer boots up, check if the second memory card is detected by the computer. Click "Start," right-click "Computer" and then "Properties." Under "System," check the amount of "Installed Memory (RAM)." If the RAM is not detected, the RAM slot or the RAM card itself may be malfunctioning. Place the RAM card into another memory slot in your motherboard and see if the card is detected. If it is detected, the other memory slot is malfunctioning. Do not install any RAM card into it to avoid further damage. If it is not detected, the RAM card may be malfunctioning. Insert another RAM card into the slot. If the RAM card is detected, the slot is malfunctioning.

Memorey card is not work in a phone


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

The fault is either from the phone or the phone's memory card slot.

Test the memory card on another phone or any other device that uses memory card. If the memor card doesn't work, then it means the memory card is not good. But if the memory card works, it means fault is from the phone.

Get a phone screw driver, disassemble the phone, clean the memory car slot with a tooth brush. This will clear off all particles that maybe preventing the memory card from contacting the phone properly.

The cleaning the memory card slot doesn't help, it means the memory card slot of the phone is defective. It takes only a repairman to fix this fault for you.

I hope the above information is celar.

Regards.

Can i insert this type of memory card into the slot into the computer directly? it says on my laptop that sd, xd and M (symbol for pro duo? )can be inserted. But when i try to insert it, it doesn't appear...


it is advisable to buy a AIO (All in one) card reader, you can use this to many different type of memory card, the built in slot for memory card in your laptop sometimes only suite to a single type or model (ex. SD slot..MMC Slot etc.)

in your case your memory card is not fit to it, don't force it you might damaged your card

PS2 STATES THAT MEMORY CARD IS NOT IN SLOT, BUT IT IS.


THis is simple. Either your memory card has not enough room, the memory card is broken or the slot you are putting it in is broken. Try putting it in the other slot.

PS2 Memory Card Read Error


Hi,

Have you tried cleaning the open connections?

Memory Card Error


Chances are that the contacts in the card slot are either dirty or worn out. First thing I would try would be to try blow out the card slot. I suggest caned air, You could use a straw and Puffs of breath, but keep it dry. If that doesn’t work put a lint free cloth over a piece of cardboard about the same size as a memory stick. Be vary careful that it is not thicker then the memory stick. Dampen the end with Alcohol (Denatured Alcohol is best but standard rubbing alcohol might work in a pinch). I repeat, dampen with alcohol not dripping wet. Remove the battery just to be sure. Insert the swab into the card slot a half of a dozen times when you pull it out look to see if you see any residue on the swab. Hopefully you see dark stripes on the cloth. Let the camera sit with an empty slot (and no battery) for a hour before you try it again.

If all that fails the last chance (short of replacing the card reader) try to put some electrical tape on the memory stick on the side opposite from the gold contacts, be carful not to cover the contacts. Try one piece of type at a time and DON’T force the memory stick into the slot This will slightly increase the pressure on the contacts inside the card reader slot. If you have to resort to this be carful that the tape sticks completely and that it is neatly trimmed, you don’t want the type coming off inside the cameras. If this works you will need to add tape to all memory sticks used in this camera. I would NOT use any “taped” sticks in any other readers without removing the tape first.

PS2 memory card has been removed or replaced????


WELL THIS AN IDEA FROM ME. THERE MUST BE SOMTHING WRONG WITH HE SLOT ARE THE MEMORY CARD.
!. FIRST I WOULD CHECK INSIDE THE SLOT IF IT HAS ANY DUSK , IF IT DOES DO NOT BLOW IN IT, JUST USE A PIECE OF PARER A TRY TO WIPE IT OUT.
2. SECOND I WOULD CHECK THE MEMOERY CARD IF ANY OF THE PIECES THAT GO INSIDE SLOT ARE MISSING, IF SO THEN IT WON'T WORK ANYMORE.
3. THEN I WOULD INSERT THE MEMOERY CARD , AND PUSH IT A LITTLE HARDER INSIDE, mAY BE ITS NOT FULLY INSIDE.

Hope it works for you.

Ps2 memory card


Hi Lofatman,

 

If this problem happens with the memory card when its in either slot 1 or slot 2

I suggest you clean the contacts of the memory card. 

 

If it just happens when you have in Slot 1 or Slot 2 only,

 Go to Radio Shack and get a Can of contact cleaner that has a Brush built into the Spray nozzle. 

  1. Turn off the PS2 and disconnect the power cord.
  2. Use a small screwdriver to press open the memory card slot. Do not use too much force, its delicate.
  3. Push the Brush sprayer up into the memorycard slot and spray a little and brush away at the memory slot contacts.

if you do not have success with that, you must open the PS2 case, and Remove the Controler ports and clean up the whole controller port assembly.

 

If that doesn't work, and your frustrated and not Electronically skilled enough to do this.  I can get the PS2 in tip top shape, for $32 and that includes return shipping.  I run the website www.playstationclinic.com

 

This should put you in business.

Problem


Look at the bottom of the memory card slot, you probably bent one or more of the contactor pins. Use a small screwdriver and carefully try to straight the bent pin then carefully put the memory card back in. From now on, use a USB cable for downloading your pictures and don't pull the card out anymore as the pin is probably weaker than before and can break. Good luck
