Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
Mine goes to the DS screen not the AR whats wrong, and can i fix it?
Look where the game card goes called (slot a) see if the pins are bent or crossed over themselves need good eyes and a torch if so you need to replace the slot a or see if you can clean the pins in the game card with a very stiff pig bristle brush (small school paint brush but cut the bristles to about 5 mm and use it like a scrubbing brush not across but lengthwise) then with it turned on insert the game in and out a few times slowly to see if it worked sometimes the get bad contact with the pins and the card Hope this helps

The best method to remove any foreign objects is to tap DS slowly holding upside down. If it does not work...
Try looking into the Slot, put it an angle or use a flash light to see if the pins are bent. 95% of the time this is the case. If you observed that the pins are bent, you will have to see it very closely, then you need a slot replacement. I found there is no work around to this, if you try to insert some kind of brush to clean, it will further damage the slot and you risk blowing the fuse next time you try to check with the card inserted.
The replacement card slot itself is $5-7 on eBay but If you are not very good at soldering, I mean VERY GOOD do not attempt to replace the slot. There are lot of cheap repair services that take care of this problem on eBay or online.
