Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

Can't turn off DS games

I bought a DS on Ebay with several free games. None of them seem to have the option of "exiting" or shutting down. I just have to turn it off at the power. Is this normal?

Yes this is normal. Games for the DS Lite (and the DS) don't have an exit option. You must turn the device off, remove the game and start the device with another one.
With your ....... card its the same, it must start-up again to see the list to choose from

I bought a brand new DS lite online, it functions perfectly when switched on, but when I insert a game card it immediately switches itself off. if I insert the game card before turning the DS on, then it...


I had just repaired two of these with the same problems, and ran into two different solutions! First solution is too check with a little flash light inside the game cartridge area where you insert the game for bent pins that may contact each other when the game is inserted, the solution is to take apart and repair the bent pins by straightening them out, or buy a new cartridge holder from ebay to solder on the board. This fixes no read and shut down of ds, and is a permanent fix, until someone jams a cartridge back in and bends the pins again.

The other fix, is to buy a new motherboard I found that one had a circuit malfunction which caused this issue.

Most likely and a lot of times it is in fact bent pins causing this because when inserting the game into the cartridge area over and over with force or putting it in backwards and forcing it by someone that doesn't know any better will create the problem and that leaves you two options I stated above: If you can fix the bent pins you might have success, if you can solder, you can replace the game cartridge on the motherboard, and or replace motherboard if that failed. If you don't do none of these you have the option to get it repaired, sell it back on eBay.
The pins are fragile and can be bent in ways not repairable in that case you would safe time and effort to buy a game cartridge on line, cheap few bucks, and solder it onto motherboard to fix your issue.
Just look for game cartridge slot reader for your type of ds on eBay! Good Luck!

None responsive DS lite screen


Hi,
It sounds like you need a replacement touch screen. They are reasonably simple to replace if you're confident with taking it apart, otherwise you'll need to pay for a repair. You can buy touchscreen on ebay fairly cheaply.

Nintendogs Game


contact the person you bought it from and tell them of this problem, what they have done is faulty advertising, if they wont give you a replacement or a refund report to ebay of the problem, i have had this done to me on several occasions and they have not gotten away with it, don't let them get away with this.

DS Keeps telling me to put the system settings


If you go to the Settings option as you obviously have, try to go into the Start-up options and click on the Arrow leading into a box.... this will take you to manual mode or Auto mode. If you chose Auto mode it will just start up the game as you put the card in. If you want to change it... take the game out, start it up and you will have the option of changing it back to manual mode or changing your settings etc. Make sure you hit confirm with all the options you change.
