This means that the microcontroller cannot communicate with the SD card.
It’s usually caused by bad soldering joints or dust in the SD socket.
Can you please check your soldering joints on the SD socket and reinsert the card a few times? Also, please send us photos of your circuit board so that we can check your soldering joints.
