I have a new ds game stuck in the slot - please help

My son's new ds game still plays but will not eject from the slot - you cannot push the game down at all - it is hard as a rock. Good news is it still plays, bad news: he can't play anything else.

Any ideas for this problem?

    Actually I discovered that a small amount of yogurt was stuck in the slot and when it was cold outside it broke and I was able to push the game in again.

    I have a game stuck in my ds also. I've tried working it free with my hands but have only managed to break a few nails. As far as I know there isn't anything in mine!

The pin is stuck down try powering the unit down and pulling it out by hand, dont use any tools.
then see if another game will click into place.

My sons DS lite is having issues with the games clicking into the slot. The games go all the way into the slot but wont click into place, and they will play if i hold the game in. I've looked in the slot...


The spring that holds the game in place is broken and needs to be replaced. at some point someone may have snatched the game out instead of pressing it in then ejecting it. Here is a link to another moms story about the DS http://headbonk.com/blog/2009/04/12/nds-silver-slot-1-repair-sort-of/ I hope this helps and I hope its just gunk stuck in the bottm of slot 1 thanks in advance for your feedback

My son's r4 keeps freezing in middle of game. How do I sort this please? Does it need reformating? Whay exactly does reformating mean anyway?


I had this same problem with 3 ds lites it would freeze on startup some times after freezing with the r4 what i found is the card is not making a good connection with the pins in the slot 1, you can get a new slot 1 for a few bucks but it requires soldering. until i received my new one i took a 1.0mm screw driver flat head and pushed the card all the way down and lodged it with the screw driver. Has not froze after that.

Nintendo DS Lite games won't work!


my son's DS had the same problem this week. With the DS turned off, ,I pushed the game in and held it right down while turning the DS on. The game registered and I let go of the game and it clicked in to place. The next time I tried the game it registered straight away. Good luck!

Ds game stuck inside wii


lol funny situation now maybe you should get either 2 very thin peices of wire or something sort of solid and fish it out or unscrew your console and if there are wires hanging from bits just dont touch them and keep unscrewing and remember were you took the things out from then when you get to the cd slot take the ds card out and that should work good luck

Nintendo ds lite won't read card


had this problem, i looked into where the game goes and one of the little metal teeth was bent, so i took a long toothpick and gently pushed it back over now it works fine. Be careful that you dont break it off though.

Ds wont turn on when game inserted


they probably would realize due to serial numbers - too risky.

DS recognises game but won't play


check the connectors inside cartridge slot inside ds, verify if they are all aligned ( | | | | | ).

if any contact is bend, you must align it, also check for dirt or rust inside slot.

sometimes you will need to clean contacts inside. you must buy a cleaning kit to do it.

Nintendo DS does not recognise games


Maybe it has got something in the nintendo games slot. My one kept not working and when I cleaned that slot it worked, there was a bit of tissue in it.
