Replacement SD card Socket

Sun Apr 14, 2013 9:38 am

Hi,
can anyone tell me where I can obtain a replacement SD card socket for my PI?
I have looked on ebay and found several sockets, but the pin outs seem different. (the plastic on the side of mine has cracked, causing the card to fall out of the socket!)

If you're in or near the UK you can see if user techpaul still has some left (http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 34#p311234).
I got two from him (used one, kept one for spare) for a reasonable price...

Hi,
thanks for the suggestions, I tried the credit card/glue method, so far it's working well.... but now the mouse has died!
