I found that pins can be straightened out using the tip from a mechanical pencil. The hole at the end fits well with a pin. Just be careful not to break the pin.

When I got my A1200 I found that 3 pins in the PCMCIA port had been bent by the precious owner and two of them were completely flat against the back. Using a pencil I managed to straighten them out without breaking them and there hasn't been a problem with them since.

It's important to be careful when inserting a card and not force it if there's unusual resistance. As you've found out, they are fragile.
