DS Lite Game Slot prblem

Does anyone know where I can buy spare parts for the DS Lite?  My daughter inserted a game into the slot backwards and messed up the game slot connector.

I need to replace the Game Slot.

I just bought my daughter a nintendo ds lite for my daughter. when i insert the game into slot 2 it tells me that there is no game insterted..i took the battery out and put it back in to try to reset it or...

try different games instead of one, could be the GBA [game boy advance] game that is broken! or it could be the DS slot for it so try using an other GBA game to see if it works! if not then see if you have a warrenty on it from the store you bought it from, warrentys should cover it if the other GBA games dont work on it! no warrenty i guess you could have nintendo fix it but im sure for a hefty price!

Ds lite not reading games

The game is old and maybe not treated with care. Mail it to palm coast, fl.

A freezing nintendo lite!

The DS Card Slot may be loose. If so, try not to touch the game card while playing.

Or, there may be a piece of dust or lint in the card slot. If you can see the lint, pick it out with clean tweezers. If you cannot see it, ask a mechanic to open the Ds and pick the dust out.

DS lite. Game will not lock into game slot. Unit works fine if you hold game in place.

That's a different one, a repair service is available be here: Part is not available to buy separately. If you want to do it yourself, buy a faulty console off eBay, a normal DS will be cheaper and the game slot is compatible because its the same for both and take the one off the faulty console and put it on yours.

Game won't go into DS Lite

Do other games work (click) correctly?

Is there something wrong with the game cartridge? Like is the case bent or broken?

Does not recognize ds cartridge!

My daughter's DS had the same issue, worked one day and didn't work the next. I found that the contacts inside were just dirty. The slot is too small to fit a cotton swab, and most other things run a risk of bending the small connectors which would surely make it a paperweight. What I did was put a little dab of alcohol across the metal slides of one of her least favorite cartridges and clicked it in and out of the DS about 15 times and it worked perfectly. (the cartridge survived too). Hope this works for you too!
