Arrow One Fix For Faulty Card Readers

Hi Guys

I've just been doing a box >> Opened it up, Jtag-ed it and got IRD and BK >> So I went ahead and did my card >> Powered Up box > Got free channels > Insert my Card >> Card Reader Faulty

I got the message saying "Sorry your smart Card isn't inserted properly..blah blah blah"

after programming a different card with the same result I gave up !! I just looked it at and said "Stupid F***ng box and started bang the card in and out" LOL I have a temper problem

Then I saw it !!!!!!!!!!! Check this out



That metal bit sticking out shouldn't be like this ! it should be attached to the other metal bit which is circled. So what I did was I pushed my card in to the point where it doesn't push the metal bit apart like the following pic



Now I try everything and BINGO everything works fine the card is read and all the channels are unlocked.

This could be very helpful to some people perhaps it can be made a sticky !

Thanks Guys

You are the BEST

Default Re: One Fix For Faulty Card Readers

Ohh yeah if you have a soldering iron, you can solder them metal bits back together, so even if you push the card all the way back the card will be read.
