my daughters ds lite has a few problems. The calibration is out and wont fix when i calibrate it. It wont play ds games but will play gameboy games. Please could you tell me if these problems cn be fixed?

The touch screen may be faulty but can be replaced. The SLOT 1 game slot may have bent pins or broken pins. Bent pins can be easily fixed (with care and patience) but replacing the SLOT 1 or the touch screen is quite difficult. It is probably repairable but only by someone who knows what they are doing.

DS Lite no longer recognizes games when they are inserted


My best suggestions for resolving the bent/ broken slot-1 pins are:
1) If under warranty then send it off to them for repair.
2) Find a local repair place and give it to them to repair it.
3) If you have good soldering skills and fancy a bit of DIY repair you can have a go at sorting it yourself.

To be honest its far easier to just replace the entire slot-1 part than it is to take the part apart and repair it, the cost of the slot- 1 is very reasonable from ebay.

I have a few guides written up to help you if you do decide to take the DIY option, they are as follows:

Hope this helps, any further help or advice you may need then feel free to contact me.

my ds lite wont read my ds games

Check the game slot, under a light have a look inside to see if there are any bent or broken pins, if there are any the game slot will need to be replaced, you can take it back to where you bought and ask them about getting it repaired or contact nintendo direct for repairs.

If everything looks ok give the socket a blow inside and hold the ds with cover facing away from you and press down slightly at the top of the game socket, i know this is not a technical repair but i have done it a number of times and it has'nt failed.
