Nintendo DSi & Nintendo DSi XL - Settings - Mic Test You can use this feature to verify that the system's built-in microphone is working properly. How to test the microphone:
On the Nintendo DSi Menu, use the stylus to select the Settings ("wrench") icon.
Select the right arrow twice to go to page 3, then select "Mic Test."
Speak into the microphone (the microphone is located on the center of the hinge).
The volume bar will fill up with colored bands when it picks up sound.
If the volume meter does not fill up, check whether anything is connected to the headset port. If noting is connected and test still does not work, then there is likely a problem with the microphone and the Nintendo DSi will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair information.
If the volume meter responds, then the microphone is working properly.
I had this problem as well but it wouldn't work at all when i got it however i discovered you have to use the regular controller with the mic. just plug in the mic and turn on the reg controller and whaa laa it works. i was on my way to the store to return it and stumbled accross this accidentally but it works i didn't have to return it at all hope that helps. as for the quiting all at once when it was working i have no idea how to fix that
I have just tried again and again! Just do what it says in the manual! The quadrants don't light up! go through the install process and give them a try and they should work. That's all I did and they worked fine. Good Luck
The microphone level can only be adjusted in certain games. Have you tried using the mic in any other games? Most likely, the mic is simply defective; I have heard of more than one case of manufacturing defects with Nintendo DS microphones. How long have you had the system? If it is still under warranty, Nintendo should fix the system for free.
