I have two DS consoles for my kids - both stopped recognizing discs... I called Nintendo, and they wanted $75 each to fix, or $85 each for a refurb.

I got to looking, and the contacts appeared greenish, inside the machine.

So, thinking I had nothing to lose - I tried a nail file, the ones that look like a popsicle stick with sandpaper on them and inserted the softer side down, and polished the contacts inside the machine.

I spent maybe 20 seconds on each machine and they work like a champ now - they'll see anything inserted into them.

Do at your own risk, but it worked like a champ for us.

Best wishes!

Ds lite does not read games


First thing to do is rule out a dirty game slot. Buy a game slot cleaner online or at your local game store. Clean the slot and your games using the cleaning kit. Once you have done this if you still encounter the problem you should contact Nintendo to have it repaired or sell it as broken and buy a good used one.

My ds cant read any games


Take out the game and blow on the metal part then blow into the game slot on your DS. Put the game back in an try again. This clears anything that might have been on the game card or in the game slot.

Nintendo ds lite not reading games cards My ds will not read the games, it shows that ther e is not a game inserted. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks


I think your responses are elementary and people are looking for propable diagnostics in a whole, not, "send it in to Nintendo". No S**T! Do you think they'd repair it for you? Come on people the point of this site is for people to work together to become more self reliant in fixing our products ourselves and stop throwing away electronics just because there is a bad fuse or something. I can't believe that 4 people said "blow air in it". !?
