Ds games keep freezing

Occasional lockups with video gamescan happen from time-to-time and do not necessarily indicate a need for repairor replacement. If you are experiencing frequent lockups, or a particular gamealways locks up in the same area, please see the information below. Make sure you are using onlylicensed accessories. Unlicensed products and accessories do not undergoNintendo's testing and evaluation process. They may not work at all with ourgame systems, and they may have compatibility problems with certain games oraccessories. Check for visible contamination orforeign material on the connector pins of your Game Cards or Game Paks. Ifpossible, try the Game Card in another Nintendo DS or Nintendo DS Lite. If the game works properly inanother system, the problem is with your Nintendo DS Lite. (from nintendo troubleshootingguide)

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.

R4 in NDSL freezing

The only thing i can suggest is to go to the site that is on your card and download the new firmware for your card, it maybe that you just need to update your card, if that dont work you may need to buy a new card, i would not leave your card in the nds if you are not using it for a while, take it out, dont leave it in the nds, it maybe that the contacts are worn.

My ds lite is suffering from intermitent screen freezing. Quite infrequent, but increasing. Needs rebooting evry time it happens

Take a can of air and blow it gently into the slot where the games go in.

If your still having freezeup problems see if its happening on all games, if it is then your main board inside the DS is going bad, if its only happening on certain games then make sure the contacts on your games are clean,

You can do this by using a damp q-tip with glass cleaner on it and then use a dry q-tip to make sure the contacts are dry. If the lockups are still happening then the DS is going bad regardless.
