Re: master key for nintendo dsi xl without calling...
Nintendo DS Browser Failsafe Mode: Ok, you may need help to do this, as everywhere I have looked has said it's pretty tough to do alone (one person said they had to hold the stylus in their mouth).
When you go to launch the browser, hold L, R, Up, X, B, and select Enter Failsafe mode to clear bookmarks and reset to factory settings (as well as eliminating the password).
This key combination is the first thing the system and browser checks for, so you have to be holding it from the start of the boot-up. So turn the unit off, press the buttons (and hold them) then turn it on, continuing to hold them while tapping A to launch the browser from the menu. Continue holding until you get the failsafe screen or asked for the password (in which case you need to try again).
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. goodluck!

Eject any games from the DSi's game slot and power on the console.
Tap the "wrench" icon on the DSi's main menu to open the settings menu.
Tap the arrow on the right side of the screen until you reach page four of the settings menu.
Select "Format System Memory" and continue to choose the "Format" option each time you're prompted by the console. Wait while the console formats its system memory, including DSi Shop downloads and any alterations made to the system settings. How to Reset Nintendo DS eHow
Attached is a website to get a bypass code for your DSi - http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp
Although, it only indicates Wii, it also works for Nintendo DSi consoles.
Just key in your Inquiry number and date and then just use the unlock code from the website to unlock your console.
Please note that the date that you enter into the website should be the same date that reflects on your Dsi console.
I hope this trick helps you too. Let me know if it works for you.
The only way to retrieve the master key for your Nintendo Dsi is to call Nintendo's US branch. Their number is: 1-800-255-3700
Once you get in touch with them, they have to ask you questions to confirm your date of birth. You have to be 18 (or a parent/guardian), and once they confirm this they will give you the master password so you can reset yours.
The master key is different for every DSi system. Call Nintendo and get
to the DSi helper. Then tell them your inquiry number and they'll
tell you the master key. Provide proof of ID, your inquiry
number on the DSi and your DSi serial number.
Call nintendo at 1-800-255-3700 between 6am and 7pm and follow the instructions the operator gives u to get to a nintendo worker that deals with DSI problems. They may ask ur birth date(18 and over can get master key 17 and under can't) anyways, give them ur number and they will give u a master key. enter the code on the page after the one with the number u told them and enter the master key. There u go!
This error code can
occur for two different reasons:
You are trying to agree to the User Agreement of the Nintendo DSi or
Nintendo DSi XL, but are receiving error code 51099. This can occur if
the Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL tries to connect to Nintendo's
servers to download the User Agreement, but there is no existing
Internet connection setup on the system. To connect your Nintendo DSi or
Nintendo DSi XL to the Internet, please click
You are trying to play a Nintendo DS game online with a Nintendo DSi
or Nintendo DSi XL, but your home Internet is set to WPA security.
Please read the following:
There appears to be a compatibility issue with the security settings
on your router: Are you using WPA
I am using WEP security
If you are using a Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL, you will be able
to connect online and use many online features with WPA security.
However, you will not be able to play original
Nintendo DS games that are Wi-Fi compatible, as they are only
programmed to work with WEP security. In order to play these games
online, you will need to do the following (If you are not receiving this
error when attempting to connect games online, click
Change your wireless security to WEP or temporarily disable wireless
security if you wish to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
If you are unable to log into your router or do not know how, you
can check our router look-up page (link)
to see if it is listed. If your model number is not listed, check any
similar models from the same manufacturer for default information. If
you are still unable to log into your router, please refer to the router
manufacturer or the company that provided it.
Make sure your router is not on our list
of incompatible routers. If it is, we recommended using a router
that is compatible or co
nnecting from a hotspot location.
The wireless security settings are typically found under sections
labeled 'Wireless', 'Basic Wireless' or 'Wireless Security'.
Change the security mode to WEP, and chose your encryption type.
The 64-bit encryption type typically uses a 10 character key while the
128-bit encryption type uses a 26 character key. Hexadecimal keys
consist of letters A-F and 0-9, whereas ASCII keys have no limitations
and are case sensitive. Be sure to use the key that is listed in 'key
slot 1' and make sure you are not using a 'passphrase'. For specific
information about changing your security type please see your router's
manual or contact the manufacturer.
Important Note: it is recommended that any
changes made to the router are performed from a computer that is wired
via Ethernet cable to the router. In addition, any changes made to
wireless security must also be adjusted on other wireless devices in the
home that use the router (e.g. laptops, other game systems, etc). For
instructions on how to change these devices, refer to the user manuals
for these devices or contact the manufacturer.
Establish a connection in connection files 1-3 on the Nintendo DSi
or Nintendo DSi XL. Make sure you are putting the WEP key into the
Nintendo DSi exactly as it appears on your router page.
error persists while using WEP (or if you are receiving this error with
other Wi-Fi features), follow these steps:
Keep trying, as there may be a temporary network issue. If the
problem persists, or has been consistent over a period of time, move on
to the next step.
Configure the Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL manually
Please note: if your router is set to broadcast the network but
the Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL is not finding the access point then
a manual setup will not resolve the error. There may be another
problem, such as interference, or a basic setting in your router that is
causing compatibility issues. Be sure that your router is set to
'Enable SSID broadcast' or 'Enable Wireless broadcast'. If you prefer
to keep your network name hidden, verify the correct spelling and case
of your router's SSID.
