Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

Won't read game cartridges

When I turn my DS Lite console on, it says that there isn't a game inserted when there is. I've tried blowing on the cartridge and the slot where the game goes, but the problem persists.

Hey Dean,


Look inside of your cartridge, I can bet the pins are bent. That happens majority of the times the games wont read.

I'm sorry, but to fix this you're going to have to replace that cartridge. There are easier ways of doing this if you dont have the necessary tools , BUT its more expensive.


To replace this cartridge, you're going to need some solder, because all the points on it are connected by solder.

Or, you can buy a brand new board for around 60$ retail.

or send it in to be repaired with a brand new warranty for less than that.

best of luck

Nintendogs dalmations isnt working in my console


Can you play other games on your system? If so, it's likely a problem with the cartridge. DS cartridges can be easily damaged and your system may not be reading it, even if the cartridge looks fine. The only option there is to replace the game.

If your DS isn't reading any of your games though, it's the DS's fault. You might have a bad DS.

When i turn my ds lite on both screens are white. the green light is on and i have a gba game and a ds game in but its just white. nothing happens when i push the buttons or tap the screen. it was working...


When the screen goes white, that is an indication that it is attempting to read the game cartridge, take out which ever one is set to start by default and blow into it, becareful when blowing into the cartridges that your not spitting on them as well. If this does not work, please leave a comment and I'll try to assist you further.

Hi have ds lite and reads there is no ds card inserted does any body have a cure ..


One simple thing that helps sometimes is to gently blow into the hole the games go into.  This was an old trick on the original cartridge systems that worked as well.  Sometimes there's just to much dust for the system to read the cartridge!

My ds lite will not read any games


You may have a bent pin on the game slot. Try inserting a game several times rapidly in and out. Look at your game cartridges and see if one of the contacts is damaged in the same place on all of the cartridges.

If this does not solve the issue, you will need to get your console repaired. Either the repair shop will replace all of the electronics or resolder a new game slot on your existing board.

When this "freeze" occurs, turn off the DS system and remove and re-insert the game cartridge several times. Turn the system back on and the game should appear. If not, repeat this procedure.
