    New Xoom owner. Lost SD card in slot. How to disassemble.

    I recently got a WiFi Xoom and love it.

    My eyes are bad and I was trying to install my 32GB card and it went into the wrong slot. Now it's stuck and I can't put the door back on and my card is stuck. I got a pair of jewelers glasses and when I tried to get it with the tweezer, it went down and got stuck, still can't put on the battery door.

    How hard is it to disassemble this thing to the point where I can get to the card?

    It can't be fished out. I looked, I had my kids look and it's nowhere to be seen. Yes it's in there because the door don't go on. Any help is appreciated.

    That happened to me awhile back. I used a small, powerful flashlight to locate the card and pi pont tweezers to get it out. I also happened to have a set of headgear .. magnifiers over my glasses to see what I was doing. My eyesight isn't the best either. Good luck.


    Happy 2nd BDay Xoom 2/24

    I was bumped when I was trying to insert my 32 gig SanDisk® microSDHC™ and it fell into the abyss also. I ended up watching the video of how to disassemble the Xoom. Once done I was confident enough to take on the task and was successful. Below is the URL to the video of the complete teardown. I only went as far as I needed to retrieve my card. Good Luck. Let us know the outcome.
