Hi there and welcome

Can you use a match please and use this to push it in as far as you can.

Can you then get it to click in using this?

A match in the sd slot, with out the card? Don't really understand.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

put the sd card in and then push it down with a match as it will get it down further then you can with your hand

I tried with a wooden match stick first and i could feel the 'spring' mechanism push down, but it pops back up. So i tried it with a paper flat match like you said and it just jams.

ok, can you put a vacuum cleaner over it to remove anything damaged inside then try again please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok vaccumed, and tried again still springing right back up.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.


It is the locking mechanism that has faulted, it will have broken off inside or cracked

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the camera to have the body replaced (as it is a part of the body. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
