Having problems with your Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens ?

Memory Card Slot Fault

\015 Hi all.Have had my D40 for about 18 months now, but approximately 6-8 months ago, the memory card slot developed a fault and it seems to be the mechanism that holds the card in that is the problem. When I put the card into the camera, it simply springs back out, meaning that the catch that 'clicks' when you put a memory card in has developed a fault.I realise it's obviously outside of it's years Manufacturing Guarantee, but I never registered the item at the time of purchase. Should I do that now and seek assistance from NIkon or will that not work? Alternatively, does anyone know how to fix this problem without having to send the camera away for repair?Many thanks!Ben.\015
