2 part answer! depending on whether your DS is freezing because of a game or without a game

1. if freezing when you insert a game it is most likely to be because of dirty pins in the game slot. to sort this try to scrub the pins clean with VERY FINE sand paper (clean gently to avoid bending pins they are reasonably delicate!!)

2. if freezing well into a game or without a game in the console, this can be caused by water damage to the motherboard.
if you can take off the back casing off the console you will be able to see the motherboard, look over it for white marks. if any are found gentley clean with circitboard cleaner and then dried immediatly! DO NOT USE ANYTHING ELSE other than cleaning fluids designed for electronic equipment or you will cause further "water damage".

My DS lite keeps Freezing

Okay if your constantly getting freezeups even after my ideas then that means the mainboard is bad, so unless your ds is under warranty and you can get the board replaced, the ds is bad.

My DS keeps freezing with full battery, help?

I don't know how to fix your problem but I can give you some places to check. If you haven't had your ds for very long you should probably try taking it back to the store. Or you could call or visit online the nintendo customer service. Their number is 1-800-255-3700. Just go to and go to customer service. NOTE: the customer service numbers are also listed in the ds Instruction book. I hope this helped!

My ds also sometimes have the problem. The only way is to turn off then on the ds again. We really hate it too.

Ds keeps freezing and its new

you need to get hold of the person you bought it from and ask for a replacement or a refund, or you could find a gaming repair shop in your town or local area or even in the gaming mags, where you can send it off for repairs but it isn't cheap
