Can not remove MEMORY CARD from canon a540

\015 It locks and unlockes fine, however it will NOT come out of camera. Feels like it is hitting a STOP?? Push down, it locks in place, push down again and it pops up a short distance, and hits a stop???? Have pulled pretty hard on card. Camera works fine. thanks in advance\015
