Trouble with cartridge slot

Hi guys, I need your help, a few days ago trying to play with my gba sp I realized that my games stop at a certain moment and emit a distorted sound, looking at the cartridge slot I realized that one of the last pins is out of place as seen in the photo, I do not know if that is the cause of the problem but I need your answers, thank you.

I don’t have a solution, but I’m here for the same reason. My GBA AGS-001 is having his issue too, and the last pin also looks kind of funky.

For me it happens only when playing a Game Boy/Game Boy Color game and the cartridge gets moved a bit

Might want to ask on r/Gameboy, that community seems super helpful.
