A can of compressed air will work at times. Depending on how dirty it is you may be able to remove battery an clean with a diluted solution of cleaner. Alcohol works to at times. Make sure its dry before you start up again. If all this fails you may need to take it apart some what.

My Ds Lite will not reconize games.


Your game slot is probably dirty. You first trying blowing in it and see if that dislodges enough dirt to allow a game to start. Either way you want to buy a DS Lite game slot cleaning kit and clean the connectors in the slot. Also, make sure you clean the game contacts as well. If they have dirt on them it will get stuck on the contacts in the console when you put it in to play it. DON'T use alcohol to clean games or the ds slot. Buy a kit.

My daughters nintendo ds lite keeps freezing up.She has had the console for 4 years. It kept freezing up on her and shutting off, so I tried buying a new battery, and it "seemed" to work better but still...


You might have a dirty game port. As you play the game the game cartridge might be loosing contact with the contacts in the game port. If this happens the game will freeze. Clean out the game port with a cleaning kit made for the ds. Also clean all the games contacts as well. If they have dirt or grime on them they will pass it on to the contacts in the ds when you insert the game.

Transformers game in nintendo ds quit working.


make sure there is no extra dust or dirt inside of the DS. Take a can of air and blow it into the slot. Also even though you said it works in other machines, clean the contacts on the game with a slightly damp q-tip with glass cleaner.

When you do this you'll know for sure that the game is clean and the ds is clean, if the game still won't work on your ds but it works on others, I would still return it if you can and get another one.

Can't save or erase


Hmm, this can be several problems.

It may be that the game is damaged or the DS isn't reading the game card correctly.

This is usually due to dirt or other artifacts on the metal contacts on the bottom back side of the game card.
These metal contacts need to touch the metal contacts inside the DS in order for it to read.

It is also common that these get scratched up and harder for some DS machines to read.

Best ways to deal with this is you use a small Q-tip and dust off the contacts on the card.
The contacts in the DS can get dirty, but are hard to clean.
If you must, I suggest using a can of air to dust it out.
A Q-tip would only make things worse as they often break apart and the DS game card contacts are hard to get at without opening the DS itself.

If those fail then there's one final solution.
Send the game card to Nintendo for repairs.
If it is no longer under warrenty it'll cost you a fee, but they'll repair or replace the card for you.

I'd suggest checking the card in differnt DS machines to see if its just your DS not reading it right or not.

A good cleaning usually does the trick though.

Hope that helps.
Good luck fixing it.

Nintendo ds lite x 2 will not play any games


The pins on the cartridge slot get oxidation and dirt on them. The game cards also get dirty. Pick one game card and carefully cut little strips of extra-fine sand paper. Use a stylus to rub gently each contact on the game card. They should become shiny gold again. Blow it off with compressed air and insert it into the DS. Do not attempt to clean inside the DS.

NIntendo ds lite game going blank


If you are referring to a game going out during game play you need to clean the DS game slot as well as clean the contacts on all your games. The games contacts get dirty, sometimes you can't even see the stuff building up. When you put the game in the DS that dirt transfers to the DS's connectors and they get dirty over and over again until they no longer make good contact with the game. This has been a cause for game lock-ups etc. ever since the first NES console in 1985. Purchase a cleaning kit from a local store like Game Stop or Wal-Mart. If you can't find one there try Ebay. DO NOT USE ALCOHOL, this will break down the gold plating on the game contacts and the DS contacts.
