Ds doesn't recognize game

Game was put in upside down and when I pulled out (with plyers b/c stuck) the pins inside bent. Can put in a game and eject fine but DS doesn't recognize that there is a game. I opened up and bent pins back down but there is one that is too bent and fails to make contact with game so I'm sure this is the problem. Where or how can I fix. Thanks.

Joe, if your pins are bend or broken, and can not be corrected, you can try to replace the card reader. Follow this guide to remove your motherboard. Then you will need to desolder the old reader and install the new one. The part is available at places like this as well as others.
