Question about AT&T Sony Ericsson W580i Cell Phone - White

1 Answer

"Latch" Question What do you mean by the "latch"? On the w580i, you push the SIM card into its slot and it locked in place. The battery is then placed in the phone against the SIM slot. There is no latch that I can see. Can you explain? Thanks!

My lg phone says to add smart chip

The smartchip is the SIM. Without knowing which model you are working with it's hard to say for certain what the problem may be. On my older W580i, you have to slide the SIM all the way into the slot - until it actually clicks, locks into place and doesn't pop back out when you release it. The battery will not properly hold it in place.
For several other models I've seen people indicate that the SIM needs to be shimmed slightly - with the edge of a folded piece of paper, for example - to properly hold it in position against the contacts.

Nokia c7 sim card removal i don't now how ??

Insert the SIM card and battery

Important: Do not use a micro-SIM or a micro-SIM with an adapter in this device. This device does not support use of micro-SIM cards, and use of incompatible SIM cards may damage the card or the device, and may corrupt data stored on the card.

Follow the instructions carefully, to avoid damaging the back cover.

Safe removal. Always switch the device off and disconnect the charger before removing the battery.

1 Unlock the back cover release latch, and lift the back cover

2 If the battery is inserted, lift the battery out.

3 Insert a SIM card. Use the diagram printed on the device to correctly align the card.

4 Line up the contacts of the battery and the battery compartment, and insert the battery.

5 To replace the back cover, direct the top locking catches toward their slots, and press down until the cover locks into place.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

It should be a "push push" action. If you gently push it in, the latch should release.
Hope that helps.

I just removed the SD card to view some pictures and now when I put it back in it will not latch and stay down. I have tried two other cards as well and none will latch and stay down. They do not seem to...

The first thing that comes to mind is to make sure you have it in the right direction. You should have the metal connectors of the CD card facing AWAY from the batteries. Even if the card fits the other direction, it is a must to have the connectors the right way.

Some CD cards are affected in use by whether or not they are locked or unlocked. Even if you don't remember locking the card, those things can be slid pretty easily. Check to see if perhaps your card got moved to the "locked" position. (The lock is a miniscule little slider to the left of the label on most SD cards. It should be at the TOP to be unlocked, unless your brand has printed directions that differ on the card itself.)

Also, you can always try turning the camera upside down with the battery door open. Don't hit it, but if there was a little piece of dirt, it would hopefully fall out.

The SD cards need a little quick push to lock into place, and need a quick push to unlock as well.

If you check on all of these, and it still isn't locking into place, it is possible that there is a bent pin on the SD card. I haven't experienced a camera that had a problem with the SD slot yet in 8 yrs of owning digitals, but I have had bent card pins...

I hope one of those helps you.

My camera has placed a Protected card ! on my camera without my approval

No! I do not think your camera has placed a Protected card ! on my camera without my approval. Pull out your memory card and look for a very small "latch" at one of its sides. Push it the other way and try to access it again. This "latch" is the "lock/protection."
