Hi - we had the same problem on ours - caused by overenthusiastic blowing (with spit!!!!) microphone shorts out. If shorted at mic it is easily fixable - do as we have done and buy a Game earpiece and mic combined for about a fiver. If it has shorted at motherboard, you need a new one.... sorry...

SOURCE: nintendo ds lite microphone doesnt work

Doh. Wish I read this before I bought a headset. But if the mic does not work, the headset apparently doesnt help. If your under warranty, contact Nintendo. If not, I think we're out of luck unless you want to shell out $75

My Ds Mic Doesnt Work


If you use ebay, search for DS microphone. There are several suppliers of these items which are quite easy to fit but only attempt it if you are comfortable doing so.

My Nintendo DS microphone broke for no reason and my sister's also broke for no reason...What should I do?


Go thru these steps to see if its a configuration issue with the DS:

Restart your Nintendo DS. Sometimes a quick restart will fix your microphone problem. Do this on both systems. All the steps that I mention, do them on both systems.

Check whether your microphone volume is up. Access this feature through the DS menu. If the microphone’s volume is down, it will not receive any sound.

Make sure the volume on your Nintendo DS is up. If your speakers are off, you won't hear whether your microphone works.

If these steps do not correct the problem, then systems will need to be serviced cause the main board would be bad at that point.

Microphone not working i bought it just 3 days ago but when i played a game it said blow i blew nothing.


Very first thing, please ensure that you were close enough to the microphone for it to pick up on you blowing into it, it at a distance of 5 inches it still doesn't pick up you blowing into it, follow one of the following solutions.

The DS Lite comes with a one year limited time warranty, as long as they can't blame you for the microphone not working you can send it into Nintendo and get a replacement for free. So it is best that you don't attempt to fix it yourself.

Or a better solution is if you bought it from Wal-mart, and possibly some others stores, they will accept the DS Lite back for a swapped product and they will go through the process of getting the DS fixed or replaced. Make sure you bring your receipt so you can prove you bought it 3 days ago!

Hope this helps.

Ds lite microphone not working. help!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hi, The Ds microphone is relatively straight forward to replace and can be bought on eBay etc if you wished to fix it yourself. Alternatively if you contact a local DS retailer they will be able to put you in contact with nintendo who will fix it for a fee.

I don't know of anyway to bypass the activities in any games reliant on the microphone.

Microphone not working


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.

Nintendo ds lite microphone doesnt work


I fixed the MIC on my DS LITE very easily, after first replacing the MIC with a new one and finding that it still did not work (not an easy thing to replace either)! The internal MIC signal is routed to a contact at the front edge of the DS, which allows the internal MIC to be disconnected when an external MIC is connected. If this contact (which is normally held closed by the springy nature of the contact) gets dirty, then it effectively goes open circuit, disconnecting the internal MIC signal. You can use a cotton bud and a little WD-40 (contact cleaner) to clean the contact (clean the two pins next to the 3.5mm jack connector) to restore the electrical contact. Takes 5 minutes and is a LOT easier and cheaper than replacing the MIC or paying someone to repair it!
