Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
If I put in a ds game it won't read it, if i put in a gameboy game it reads it.
This could be as simple as a bit of crud or corrosion on the little pins in the slot. Could be as bad as a bent pin.
Which ever it is don't start poking things in the slot, the pins are incredibly fragile. First clean your games off to make sure its not the game at fault. Then get a very bright light and look in the slot to see if there are any bent pins, if all looks ok then you could risk some very gentle cleaning of the pins. Remember those pins will bend just for the fun of it.
If all that fails and you are good with a soldering iron change the slot, its fiddly and you need a very small tip iron, about 0.5mm or less. Oh and patience but you only need to take the bottom case of to get to it. You will need a tri-wing screwdriver too.
