With the cover off, the SD card pokes out of the bottom of the main board, just behind the screen. Press up on the card and it will eject downward. Replace the card by pressing up into the SD slot and it will secure into place.

Thanks.

You indicated in abother topic you bought non-working Blink.

I'll probably work up a few basic articles on the original Blink EVSE, including opening it and identifying the various items contained within, along with some basic troubleshooting and eventually work up to advanced troubleshooting.

Since Blink has been fairly non-responsive, I've assisted quite a few local Blink EVSE owners with their issues and so far haven't come across a complete hardware failure - however I plan on using this extra Blink to be able to swap out components to find out which ones need to be replaced as they come up. Hopefully Blink will eventually allow us to buy replacement components, but we're probably stuck with cannibalizing other units in the meantime.

Otherwise, keep a lookout in the Blink sub-forum (viewforum.php?f=43) as I'll probably post my instructional articles there...

I looked but did not find any other instructional articles, other than the earlier ones on how to make replacement micro SD card which should be very helpful although I haven't bought a card to try it yet.
Could you point me to a link?

It's been a fairly low priority for me since I got that Blink as a backup. The easiest way to make a new SD card is to download the image file I provided and then use Win32 Disk Imager to write it to a new SD card.
