    Angry SD card slot "broken"

    Hello again! I have a Thrive AT 105-T1032. It is just a little over a year old (and out of warranty) and my screen froze up on the shut down screen. I tried to close it by holding the power button down, etc several times, but over several days, it would not change.

    Finally decided to try the 'reset' button and finding none :-), I decided to pull the battery. So I took the back off and pulled the battery out and viola!, the tablet closed. After a few minutes, I replaced the battery, the back, and the tablet started without a problem...EXCEPT when I attempted to insert my SD card, the card would not seat into the card slot. It does not 'click' into place anymore. It would be a HUGH drag if my SD card slot would not work any longer.

    Can someone, anyone help a girl out!?? ;-(

    Thanks, in advance, to all of you who share with us novices,

    Re: SD card slot "broken"

    Other than trying a different card (if it might be the issue) it's a not-too-common problem; a broken retention spring/assembly in the slot.
    Needs to be repaired.
    Toshiba is the answer. IIRC, it's part of the mainboard assembly, which is $130 retail.
    If under warranty, I'd let them do it.

    Dan - thanks for your suggestions. I already tried different cards and as I said, the tablet is out of warranty. Thanks, again.

    Does it work if you 'hold' the card in place?
