Full Version: Need New Sd Socket
OESF Portables Forum > Everything Else > Archived Forums > Distros, Development, and Model Specific Forums > Model Specific Forums > Sharp Zaurus > Cxx0 Hardware
anyone know where to get a new socket for my sd card or at least the part number? It got a bit messed up for no apparent reason when I was putting my sd card in.

I've taken my Z apart and got it so it will work, but some of the contacts inside the sd socket are a bit bent and I'd like to replace it. (bought it in Japan more than a year ago, so I don't have a warrenty.)

Its only the sd socket i want to replace which is just a small piece of metal with a spring for ejecting and a few gold contacts and sensors. It looks like it only has about a dozen solder points so it shouldn't be too hard to do.

My only other option is to just leave my sd card inside and transfer files over the usb link.

Its a little disturbing because I didn't do anything unusual to break it. I was just putting the sd card in and it seemed to bump into something. I took the card out and saw a gold contact in an obviously wrong position.
Check out Mouser Electronics they have a lot of supplies for everything from through hole to surface mount components.
