    Yesterday I took apart my r4i (yes, i know, pretty dumb).
    anyway, i took the plastic modeling part, which is the bottom half of the r4, and inserted it into the slot.
    now the half-chip is stuck there, when i eject it i here the clicking noise but then only 1cm comes out. i tried to pull it out but that didn't work. [​IMG]
    i have a feeling it has something to do with the clip on the left side of the slot (when facing the back) but i'm not sure.
    anyone have any suggestions?

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    Use either something like your fingernail or something sharp to dig into the plastic of the R4i and pull/dig it out. A needle will also work.

    just try some tweezers and gently maneuver it out of the slot

    again i don't think that just brute force will work.
    i have a feeling it might be caught by one of the clips.
    thanks for the suggestion though
