Z70-80 SD reader won't latch

All of a sudden, the SD card reader in my Z70 laptop will no longer latch on the card. As a photographer, I really need for the card reader to work so I can download my photos! My laptop is out of warranty (less than 2 yrs old) and a search for an authorized repair place brings up none in Colorado.  Any suggestions for a fix?

Hi caemin,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Here is the service center search tool that you can use or try nearest best buy repair center.

You may also review the hardware manual and training module here for replacement of the USB audio card reader board (3in1 board similar to this)/ card reader board if you have the tools.


You can check the part number with your serial number here on the parts lookup page.


If you do not have the time for the repair at the moment, then a USB multi-card reader can be a practical option.


Hope this helps answer your query.
