Question about Nintendo DS Console

1 Answer

L-Button I have had Nintendo DS for almost half a year. 2 months ago my L button started to become less reliable, say every 10th time it didn't work. last week it hardly ever worked and now no matter how many times i try on any game it wont work. I don't want to go get it fixed because I'm I debt and i don't have a warranty, if someone could find a way to fix the problem i would be most gratefull.

You can try taking apart the console and cleaning the connections for the sholder buttons. You also should be making sure they are springy and connect to the board properly. The ones that I have repaired with this problem have all been cleanings. You can find video disasembly tutorials by googling around with "take apart ds." If this is a DS-Lite, then just follow the same instructions but google DS-Lite instead of DS.

Why doesn't my start and select work on pokemon white version, i try n put every button i can and nothing


Recently, the Pokemon games will only use X & Y instead, but if you have downloaded the game from the *ahem* servers, games are becoming less and less reliable. You may just have to resort to buying the game properly IF it has a major effect on gameplay. If not, just continue to play and ignore them.

I bought a nintendo ds lite a month ago and the last week or so, the touch screen has become really shaky. Can I get it repaired or is it something that can't be fixed?


Hi did you buy it new or second hand?

If you bought it new I would bring it back to the shop you purchased it in as it would be under guarantee and they should replace it or repair it for you at no cost to yourself.

If its second hand some of the phone repair shops also do computer and console repairs its worth checking out.

My 8 yr. old daughter left here ds lite in the rain


Go to the retailer you bought it from and if you bought it less than two years ago you can get a new one free with the exchange of the old one only if you have the warranty

Top half dont work


Solution:

1. IF you have R4 card in your DS, take it out.

2. Go to Settings (Little icon on the bottom of the touch screen)

3. Select Pink button

4. Select "GBA Mode" (pink button on the right)

5. Select "Touch screen"


NOTE:

This is mainly affective for GBA games, not DS games unfortunately.
If you are really that desperate to play DS games properly, then either hope you can still claim it on warranty and/or buy a brand new DS (maybe even the new DSi).



Hope I helped

My Trigger Buttons don't work!!


This has happened to me as well. I wasn't able to find a fix, but as you've only had your DS for half a year, it's still under warranty (12 month standard on all Nintendo consoles,) so I would recommend sending it in for repairs. You can set up a repair order here: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/dslite_system.jsp?region=USA&is=s3O

It shouldn't take too long, when I sent mine in on a tuesday afternoon, it was back by friday.

Hope this helps.
