EOS R SD memory card slot fail

I have had my R nearly 3 years. A few weeks ago I went out took some photos all was fine. Last Friday I powered on the camera and got error message saying remove card or format in camera….well nothing worked…with SD card inserted the only thing I could do was go through the camera menu system. All camera functions frozen. I removed the battery for a few seconds, went out and bought a new memory card, tried a friends memory card but still same message. Memory card worked fine on computer or iPad to download photos. Camera is fine with no card inserted.
it seems I have a SD card slot failure, some dirt or bent contacts or something should I be worried? I took it for repair today and should know something in a few days
