Sierra

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

Yes the system is current as of last Monday

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

I have tried inserting a thin plastic blade into the disk slot trying remove the SDHC card but i can't get it out. I have also tilted the iMac onto it's side hoping the card would come out but not luck.

Please look for any buttons or pinholes next to the slot. If you find a button, press it. If you find a pinhole, use a paperclip to gently press in on it. If you find neither, try gently pushing the back of the card to release the mechanism.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
