Daniel Austin, Could be a broken piece off card/dust/debri or damaged inside the card slot mis-aligned lock spring/pin. Use a magnifier and aim a flashlight down the slot and see if there is anything obvious causing the issue. Also try another card if all looks good. If it ends up that the camera needs a new SD memory card slot, it is soldered to the mother board and would be best to have it checked out at a good local camera shop and estimate repair.  Links below may be of some help, 1st/2nd link are forums that talks of your issue and 3rd link is video showing what he found to be the problem. Last link is a replacement card reader.  Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
