Possible to fix card slot for Nikon D70?

I have a Nikon D70 and one day I found the flash card sticking out and discovered some little hands had been playing around with it. The issue was one of the pins was bent to the point where I couldn’t insert the card. Using a small screwdriver I was able to realign the pin and insert a card however the camera fails to recognize the card and just displays “-E-” where the image count normally would appear.

I’m curious, is this worth trying to fix? Anyone have a repair place they would recommend?
