Cant play games on nintendo ds lite

We have tried playing a new game on our nintendo ds lite but the screen says that there is no ds card or game pak inserted. We've removed the game and put it back in several times but it has made no difference. Can anyone please help?

I can tell you.You might have to clean the back metal strips on your Ds game or game Pak.Also the game pak's internal battery has runned dry.Use a cutip to clean inside (works on Ds games)Turn on and off the Ds muiltiples off times and it should have work.I tried it and it worked.

Hi,

Could be one of a few possibilities, First try giving the games cartridges metal contacts a clean ideally with a cotton bud and white spirit (if you don't have white spirit try avoiding anything soapy, try and stick to an alcohol based solvant such as nail polish remover2_bing.gif).

If that doesn't work you can try cleaning the cartridge socket (slot1), you can buy proper cleaning cartridges for the DS lite, or, if your feeling brave you can get a jaye cloth, dampen it with an alcohol based solution (same as what is used to clean the cartridge) and thinly wrap it around a rigid ruler, which can then be gently placed into the slot to give it a bit of a clean.

If both of those fail you may find that some of the pins within slot1 are bent/snapped and so this will need to be fixed, If under warranty i'd suggest taking them in to get looked at. If they are not and you feel brave you can set about fixing it yourself, take the DS lite apart and have a look at the pins on the slot1 socket, if they are damaged you can buy a replacement socket on ebay, but be warned it is a tricky job to solder a new one on.

Just so you know I take no responsability for any damage that may occur whilst following these tips.

If you need any further help or advice feel free to message me and I will do my best to help you. (If it comes down to it, if you are local to Bedfordshire, UK I can always take a look at it for you).

Regards,

SOURCE: Game Pak not detected

Have you checked to see if any of the contacts in the actual console seem to be faulty?

If the problem is just with DS games, have a check by inserting a GBA game into the other side and see if it recognises it. That should tell you where the problem is. If there's a small bit of dust covering one of the contacts in the console, just blow into it a little and see if it comes free.

First before you can use the memory card on your DS lite you have to first use the DS lite to format the memory card before putting games this ensures that the game would recognise whatever games you then put on the memory card.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

How to i get to play two players on the Nintendo ds lite


You can play multiplayer games with a Nintendo DS Lite even if you don’t possess a copy of the game. If one of your friends has a multiplayer game card, they can use their Nintendo DS Lite as a host for the game session and you can join the multiplayer game.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Things You'll Need:
  • Nintendo DS Lite
    Using One Card to Host the Game
  1. Step 1 Look on the game’s packaging for the "Multiplayer" icon. If the game requires only one player to have a copy of the game, the icon will show two DS Lites: a DS Lite with a black screen transmitting waves to a DS Lite with a white screen. Below the two DS Lites is a range of numbers which indicates how many players the game can support.
  2. Step 2 Put the game card in the Nintendo DS Lite that is acting as the host for the multiplayer game session and start it up.
  3. Step 3 Have the other players turn on their systems. They will use the main menu screen to access the "DS Download Play" icon. They need to tap the icon to begin downloading the game information from the host DS Lite.
  4. Step 4 Begin playing when all of the systems have finished downloading the game information from the host.
  5. Multiple Cards for Multiple Players
  6. Step 1 Look at the "Multiplayer" icon. If every player in the game session needs a copy of the game in order to play, the icon will show two DS Lites, both with black screens, transmitting waves toward each other. A range of numbers is under this graphic and indicates how many people can play at one time.
  7. Step 2 Read the game's instruction manual on how to set up the game session. The steps required vary by company and sometimes by title within the same company.

DS lite freezes during game play


their are 3 solutions but i cant asure that it will work
1. maybe when they play ds games like pac n roll the ds cardejects for some reason so sulution 1 is put tape ontop of the ds gamecard slot while their playin a ds game
2 maybe when they play a gba game the game pak is being hit by their chests or bellies so the card is moving a bit and the game freezes so put a big distance between the ds and the chest or belly
3. dont wiggle the ds alot and do you drop it often because if it is dropt often the ds will freeze often

Ds game pak will not work


Does your Nintendo DS Lite still have a warranty? If it does then send it in to Nintendo for repair.
