The eject mechanism could be broken but it sounds more likely that it is just a bit gummed up with dust, try removing all batteries and squirting a small amount of isopropanal (rubbing alcohol) into the mechanism and repeatedly pushing the button and inserting a card. You may be able to clear the problem, if not then you are going to need to get the cardholder replaced.

Only use isopropanol and not any other cleaner or lubricant otherwise you may end up causing more damage.
