The ds lite an ds have cartridge slot problems its common either a pin is bent or the plating on the cartridge slot has come off so copper is showing or is green Needs a replacement slot Happy to give a free quote dsdoc
There is probably one or more bent pins inside the top slot (SLOT 1). Remove the battery by removing the battery cover on the bottom (held ny a screw). Shine a small torch into SLOT 1 and look inside to see if any of the pins are bent differently to the rest of the pins. If any pins are bent they can be bent back to their correct positions by using a suitable small tool such as a precision screwdriver. If a pin is actually broken then the complete slot will need to be replaced.
If it is not a bent or broken pin, there may be some other type of blockage inside SLOT 1.
If there is nothing wrong with the pins and there is no blockage inside the slot, then there may be a dry joint where the slot is soldered to the PCB inside the DS. This kind of fault will require the DS to be opened with a special tri-wing screwdriver and the use of a multimeter to check all the connections. If you have soldering experience (and tools) then you can try re-soldering the connections.
Be advised that opening the DS is much easier than putting it back together again!
Sounds to me like one or more of the Pins in the Card slot is bent or Broken. take a good look in there with a flash light. May just need a good Cleaning with some pipe cleaners. if the pins are Bent or broken you can Open it up and fix your self but this is something that you need to be a little more advanced to do. But Fixable.
Two possible options. Take the card out and blow on the card slots to remove any dust etc. or Have a look down into the DS slot to see if any of the little copper pins have bent out of place (this happens sometimes from putting in and out the card quickly) if they are bent you may have to replace the card reader.
You may have a bent pin on the game slot. Try inserting a game several times rapidly in and out. Look at your game cartridges and see if one of the contacts is damaged in the same place on all of the cartridges.
If this does not solve the issue, you will need to get your console repaired. Either the repair shop will replace all of the electronics or resolder a new game slot on your existing board.
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.
