SD card does not click in place and Memory Card Error

I get a memory card Error message, and the SD card does not click in place on my Pentax K2000. This happens no matter which card I attempt to install.

Could be a broken PR obstructed slot. Have you checked for debris?

Try inserting the SD card far enough for it to properly lock into place. You can use your fingernail or the side of a coin to push the card in until you hear a clicking sound.
Remember that the SD card label should be facing you when you insert it.
Last but not the least try to blow air into the SD card slot and then try inserting it.If this still doesn’t help you out then perhaps it’s either a product design or a manufacturing defect.
I Hope You Find this Useful.
