sounds like the spring action may have gone (card release) so that it isn't keeping the game card in position to be read. You can get these replaced fairly cheaply or if you've got ok/good soldering skills you could do it yourself. I've replaced a few and this guide is pretty good. The other alternative is to snip the 4 legs off and then the reader should slide off the pins. Be patient and it should all go well.
