Re: Z3 Compact - micro SD card won't stay in slot, always bounces out...please help!

I have the same problem. I wanna have it repaired by Sony rather as putting paper in the slot.
How much do you guys think it's going to cost?

I have like a year warranty.

Re: Z3 Compact - micro SD card won't stay in slot, always bounces out...please help!

I have this issue too and I'm very disappointed in quality of parts inside Sony phones.

 

This is third time I need to send phone in service and last time they had it for almost a month only to repair headphone jack. Fortunately phone is still under warranty but I lost my patience with Sony.

 

Phone and Software are really great but with those unacceptable hardware issues i can't trust Sony anymore and unfortunately future of Sony Mobile probably won't be a bright one...

I had the same problem. One day that I opened the side cap to charge the phone, the SD card popped out and I could not get it to stay in the slot.

I took the phone back to Sony Service and got it back in three days, fixed.

I had the same issue with my Z3 Compact, I couldn't keep my sd card in the slot, it kept bouncing out. I tried your solution, although I didn't have post it notes handy, so I used transparent tape. And it worked! Slightly smiling Face

Thanks for the advice, j_r_j!

You my man, are a live safer! I had to use my old Z3 since my Z5 is (again) broken. But the SD card wouldn't stick anymore. I'm going on holiday next week so a repair is out of the question. Since it's only a temporary solution this is what I was looking for. Thanks for posting it out here!

 

btw: I also used tape instead of sticky notes. While at it, I extended the tape at the end of the SD card to make a 'grip' to get it out more easily.

I had the same problem and fixed it in this way: took a clip, straightened it and use one of the extremities to push further the sd into the slot.

So, I inserted it and I put my finger on to avoid the pops out then I just took the clip and push further the sd on the slot. I think that in this way the slot will host the sd in a better way.

 

That solution worked for me, without any paper or tape. Hope it helps and hope that it will last.

 

Anyway I'll let you know....
