No matter what I do I can't get it to go back in. I've tried turning it on and tapping gently and that doesn't help. I've also tried the can of compressed air and that didn't help at all either. Any other ideas? The thing is this isn't my camera and I have no idea how but one day it just wouldn't work and it hadn't been
