Looks like a defective Slot1. DS Games are using different pin-connectors in Slot1. There is a possibility that one of more connector-pins for using DS games are not making contact

SOURCE: Nintendo DS not reading games

Some pins were bent in my son's DS. I used a mini LED light and an open paper clip as a pick to bend them back into line.
I then got an Emory board (nail file) and wet the tip in alcohol, the board is the right thickness to just reach the copper pins. I went in and out gently as I worked my way across the lot and kept wetting the file with alcohol. All the games worked like it was new. be sure to do this upside down so the alcohol drips out the slot along with the filings. good compressed air blow after you are done to get all the strays out of there.

The pinds are copper and they do oxidize and the games left in gets moisture trapped between the game and the pin causing some corrosion. Maybe diddimilar metals by alloy but wither way this fix works ! : )

Gameboy DS lite turns off when B button is pressed any harder than a tap. Gameboy also turns off randomly.


Your DS Lite is grounding out. Take it apart and look at the back of the Bottom LCD..


Has it had any recent liquid spills AT ALL?

GAMEBOY ADVANCE GAMES NOT BEING RECOGNIZED ON MY DS


Hi. the same thing sometimes happens to me. but i find if i remove the cartridge and blow into it and the slot on the DS then insert the cartridge firmly back into the slot it will work. it seems that even the smallest speck of dust will affect it.
