I have experienced problems with the clip that holds the microchip. (SD Card)

Has anyone else experienced similar problems?

The holding clip actually broke. Since I know that it is a nightmare to try
to send it in for repair, I am now having to use scotch tape to hold the SD Card
in place.

In my opinion, the clip, holding the card, was made with very poor quality.

Scotch tape may actually be better than the clip. Like the 436HP, but that clip holding the SD card is certainly a POS. Recently bought the WS-1080 to compare with the 436HP. At least in the SD card holder department, the WS-1080 is much better. More of the standard pop-in pop-out type of holder you see on many devices.

The key is to handle it carefully. I try not to remove the memory card unless I have to. The slot on the 536 works a lot better and that might have been a better route for Uniden to use for the 436, but they probably had reasons for doing it the way they did.

I have the same problem! My BCD436HP micro sd card metal slide holder has come off. Completely out of the scanner! I too hate to tangle with "Uniden" to get it attached. Since it has been some time since your post on this matter are you still using the "tape" approach to solve the problem? Thanks for any update.

You Tube Video

I've seen the you tube video on the procedure for reattaching the holder. I'm just interested in knowing if the Scotch tape fix is working? The application of this holder is so POOR I can see it being detached all over again!

Are you still using tape to hold the micro sd card?
