    Hi folks,the other day I decided to pull my 3D printer out of storage and do a print to check that everything was ok [ great idea ] lol. I removed the micro sd card from the slot to check what was on it and got a surprise lol The [ brass end ] of the sd card had snapped off and remained in the slot and it is still there and after several attempts at getting it out ie taking the bottom off the control box and pushing with a needle on the sd slot from the inside I have given up,,,,any suggestions on how to get it out ? The photo shows the bit of sd card that I pulled out,apologies for the quality of the image.

    It may still be latched in the socket ?.

    Use the piece that you have already and see if you can push into the slot and click the latch. It may just poke right out then.

    Those SD cards normally click (latch) ....into placed.

    I tried that and it did not work but thanks for your suggestion. somebody has suggested that I try a sucker [ ice lolly ] stick with super glue on the end,just shove it in and count to 20 and then pull lol

    Dirn it ... I thought I had something there too. I'm not real keen poking super glue into confined area's with a stick. It could get messy ?
    You'll let me know how this goes for you ?

    I totally agree that it could get messy and that is why I have not done it yet,a guy on YouTube used that method to get a stuck sim card out of a mobile phone lol. I can actually buy an updated replacement circuit board for the printer which includes the USB socket via ebay but the 70 quid price tag is slightly putting me off investing. Will let you know how I get on. cheers
     
  6. Can you see the piece in there?

    All I can see in the slot is what could be described as a black bit but that could be just me seeing what I want to see.

  8. Well if I was finally going to bite the bullet and order a new board I would try the ca glue trick. Very small amount and I would use the old sd card.

    Yep,and that is the exact advice that I would give to anybody with the same problem. When I sort out the glue I will let you guys know the result.

    WELL that didn't work,,what I now find ironic is that a replacement circuit board is 70 quid and yet you can buy a brand new Creality CR10s on ebay for 220 lol Thanks for the help guys

  13. Unless you can find a new sd card plug in and solder it in yourself.


    If it has a usb outlet you probably could get a cheap sd card reader that has a usb end on it.

    Have you tried Aliexpress or banggood or gearbest for a new board? They really should`nt be £70 someones taking the pee.
    Will this do the job?

    It will and the 70 quid jobs were bloody expensive but they were updated with a part to stop bed temperature fluctuations which I don't recall mine having lol. cheers Ian
