Canon Power Shot SD1100 IS - memory card won't lock into place

\015 At first my memory card kept 'locking the camera' when it clicks in place. Now it keeps popping out. I've tried with different memory cards .. same result. It looks like inside the memory card slot there is a tiny gold piece on the left wall that looks crooked. maybe it's loose or bent and therefore obstructing the memory card from snapping into place and working. I don't know. Has anyone had this problem? I got this camera 2 yrs ago, there is no warranty, and the stores want to charge me $100 for checking it out. (boo!) If someone could help me out I would be so grateful! Thanks guys. btw.. cool website :)\015

Hi, I have a Canon Power Shot S2 IS 5.0 megapixels that was working fine until one day I changed the memory card from 512MB to a 1GB.
