Check inside slot1 for bend or broken pins, if found you must take your DS to a videogame repair shop.

If all ok try to clean your DS slot1 contacts, theres a way to do it without problem, take some cardboard and make a cartridge width piece but longer to grab it, soak with alcohol and insert many times cartridge alike.
Dont use any cotton or fiber thing as pins can get caught and broken when you take out the cleaner.

Unit does not read game card


Blow in the NDSL card and the slot 1 (Avoid blowing with spittle).
If you use R4/Acekard/etc.:Look for dust/dirt in micro sd card. Clean it.
Not working? Probably the problem is slot 1 connector. Need to change it.

I put my R4i gold card in the slot but it just says "An error occurred.Press and hold the Power Button to turn the system off.Please see the Nintendo DSi Operations Manuel for help troubleshooting."


Since your actually not supposed to use the gold card according to the government the dsi might be a stubborn one and the gold card info cant get through or your gold card might be faulty. The most foolproof solution is to get a R4i sdhc in a red box. Then again you can try blowing into the card insert or blowing into the sandisk slot.

Good luck! :)

When i put a game in the ds it says there no ds card i dont know what to do.


try a few known working games in the DS to see if if reads any of them, if it doesn't then that means the slot that the games go into is bad. If it reads a few but not others then make sure the gold contacts on the games are cleaned off well with a damp washcloth and then dry them off. Also take a can of air and gently blow some air into the slot to make sure the slot is free of specs of dust or dirt.

If you still cant get all your games to work and you know that they all do work, then the ds is going bad on you and would need to be replaced.

Ds lite says card has been removed during game play


There might be something (dirt or dust) blocking up the ds card slot. So try blowing on the card and in the game slot.

My ds cant read any games


Take out the game and blow on the metal part then blow into the game slot on your DS. Put the game back in an try again. This clears anything that might have been on the game card or in the game slot.

Nintendo ds lite not reading games cards My ds will not read the games, it shows that ther e is not a game inserted. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks


I think your responses are elementary and people are looking for propable diagnostics in a whole, not, "send it in to Nintendo". No S**T! Do you think they'd repair it for you? Come on people the point of this site is for people to work together to become more self reliant in fixing our products ourselves and stop throwing away electronics just because there is a bad fuse or something. I can't believe that 4 people said "blow air in it". !?

Put game into action replay and it says insert game card help


I had the exact same problem as you, and I solved it. The only way to do it is to keep inserting and taking out the game card, and blowing into the DS card slot and the gold things on the lower back of the game card. After doing this about 3-5 times, the action replay should finally get the message that there is a game card in the slot. Hope this helps!

Ds not working


When you put the game in, after it clicks hold it down and do not let go. turn on your ds and see if it reads it. If it doesn't, check the pins in the slot 1 slot and maybe just put some water on a q-tip and wipe them gently. If it reads when you hold it down maybe just tape it that way or something. Check the game also to see if there are scratches on the gold part. If this all doesn't work then I am out of solutions. Or you could send it to nintendo because if they can't fix it, you get a new DS.
