you may have corrosion on the copper pins in each slot. To fix this, gently apply rubbing alcohol to the corroded pins with a cotton swab. Although it is unlikely that both of the slots would have this problem, it is worth a shot.

If the above doesn't help get rid of the corrosion, try this. Get a sheet of 600 grit wet-dry sandpaper and use that to lightly sand the metal contacts.
