This problem often appear in the first versions of Dreambox with blue LCD light. Smart-card can work only in the internal slots after resetting of Dreambox or doesn’t work at all. This breakage can be repaired. The cause is that the resistors of finding the smart-card are inappropriate (photo 1).
The potentialities of the resistors is set too high than in reality and it leads that the processor can not see the smart-card (in the slot). If we change the resistor for the new one (photo 2) the processor finds the card from the first time.
In conclusion: in all the Dreamboxes with amber LCD light this kind of problem doesn’t appear.
