SD slot won’t open

Hello, I just got this tablet on May 18th. Has no damage whatsoever. I just received my Micro sd card in the mail and was going to insert it into my device.Problem is that the key that came with the tablet does not open or eject the slot. I tried a little bit of pressure and have increased it but it has yet to open. I’ve followed the instructions it came with and even ones I found on the Verizon website but even still I cannot manage to pop it out. Could someone help me please? I’m not sure what to do

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hmm. It seems that the micro sd card and the sim card are on one removable tray. Try applying a bit more pressure on the ejector key while it is in the hole. It is best to make sure the ejector key is parallel with the device and that you are not at an angle. Otherwise you may miss the tray depression lever and the tray won't come out. If that still doesn't work, try wiggling the ejector key and applying pressure. Some removable trays are a bit more stubborn than others.

If that doesn't work, you may want to try using a sewing pin. Do this as a last resort as sewing pins are longer than the sim ejecting tool and can cause unwanted damage of the pin goes to far into the phone. Again, this is a last-resort type of decision. If you don't want to do that, try bringing it to an att / verizon / tmobile store and getting someone more experienced to do it. I can't imagine they will charge you if all you are doing is inserting / ejecting a sim card tray.

Set tablet on edge with slot up, tool inserted. Lightly rap on removal tool, eventually slot will come out.
