    This is where I screwed up so I recommend extra caution for other newbies. Only the black part is supposed to come off. Don't be an idiot like me and pry off too much...

I have an error relating to the reader on my Vita. If I took it out without replacing it, will it cause the same or different error so I have to replace it, or will it be (somewhat) fine??
