My CF WiFi card is broken
« on: November 02, 2004, 05:13:45 am »
Well, I know it was a bad move. The card was inside the slot when I saved my Zaurus from falling to the ground, but I knocked the card to my wardrobe and now it's only working when I hold the think part intensly up. If I release it, the WiFi connection break and I have to take out and reconnect the card.
As you can imagine it's not too good using it this way.
I decided to take it apart but I can't do it with ease and I don't want to break it more.

Have you got any experience with taking apart cards like mine? (picture attached)
Thank you in advance,
Zumi

ive done one card so far (its still working) an AnbCom Wl1100c-cf the funky shaped blue top on your card looks as if it could pop off (on my card it dose but its a different card) you could use a razor blade to pry it off (don't cut your self) then slighty pry the metel clip clip of the sides of the card the metel should then be able to rise off on the edges of the metel are small little tabs that are on a 90 degree angle be aware of them.. it should come off easy...  the card is most likely glued with some ruber glue on the bottem so when removeing that part be carefull not to bend the card...   you should be able to figure out the rest keep us updated..  

  your card may be different but i hope this helps

Thank you for your quick and good answer, Darkpadden!

I was able to pry it open and well, I tucked a small piece of paper under the card, inside the box and now it's working without holding it up!
(I still need to be careful with it, but it's much better!)

Thank you again, I'm happy!

The connector on the left is a U.FL Hirose, IPAX.  they are not made for repeated connects, but you can pick up a pigtail from fab-corp that will connect to it.
What's this button do??
