X1 Carbon Gen 3 - SIM card slot stuck

Hi,

 

I'm unable to open the SIM port. I've tried with a paper clip without success.

 

Regards Pål-V.

First problem fixed!

 

After installing the SIM card I get this error when I reboot my PC:

Hi Wiksaas_Lenovo,

 

Could you share with the community how you solved the stuck SIM card problem please?

 

The "Unauthorized network card" error is what you get when the system detects a network card which is not a Lenovo network card intended for use in the system. What is the provenance of the network card?

Hi bananaman,

 

The pc is equiped with this card: Ericsson N5321 3G HSPA

 

Regarding the SIM card slot that was stuck I used a mini screwdriver

instead of the paperclip.

Thanks for the mini screwdrive tip Wiksaas_Lenovo!

 

As long as that's has the Lenovo FRU on it, it SHOULD work! Try re-seating the wireless card? Did you disable the battery when inserting the card?

Despite the card is n5321, its IDs 0bdb:100e (on the photo above) belong the old Sony Ericsson card. So, the card installed is, most likely, a generic or sample. While x1c gen3 BIOS white lists IDs 0bdb:193e. That mismatching causes a boot lock.

LOL. The photo is from the Lenovo support site (Parts Lookup). Possibly a sample. I posted it to show what the card should look like, with the Lenovo FRU.

Andrew,

I meant the photo in the post #2.
On your photo device seems not a sample, it has valid labels, FCC ID including.

BTW, its IMEI belongs ... Ericsson C5621

Wiksaas_Lenovo,

was the laptop shipped from Lenovo store as a brand new device or from the 3rd party store? In both cases its an obvious fault, but the reasons differ.

Any way, laptop will reject to work with this modem. You might force exchange the modem by obvious reason, it's USB IDs are missed in the BIOS white list.
