I was never aware of this lock. On mine there is no lock, but now that I look closely, I see the word lock printed on the side. Maybe the lock fell off.

Still, I could not find any mechanism inside the hole for this that looked like it could be moved or depressed.

There is no mechanism in the card, just a sensor in the reader (or camera) that "sees" the position of the little plastic sliding thing. You can fix it by gluing something in place to replace the "switch".
