By the sound of it, you don't have any experience in fixing Nintendo DS's, so i really would not suggest fixing it yourself, i would find someone that does, like nintendo or my local games shop.

My ds slot does not show up on my choose games even though i put the games in it says 'no ds card inserted" please help me i have my ds but only the gba slot works


There is probably one or more bent pins inside the top slot (SLOT 1). Remove the battery by removing the battery cover on the bottom (held ny a screw). Shine a small torch into SLOT 1 and look inside to see if any of the pins are bent differently to the rest of the pins. If any pins are bent they can be bent back to their correct positions by using a suitable small tool such as a precision screwdriver. If a pin is actually broken then the complete slot will need to be replaced.
If it is not a bent or broken pin, there may be some other type of blockage inside SLOT 1.
If there is nothing wrong with the pins and there is no blockage inside the slot, then there may be a dry joint where the slot is soldered to the PCB inside the DS. This kind of fault will require the DS to be opened with a special tri-wing screwdriver and the use of a multimeter to check all the connections. If you have soldering experience (and tools) then you can try re-soldering the connections.

Be advised that opening the DS is much easier than putting it back together again!

When ever i put my Nintendo DS game into my DS it says NO game


your cartridge SLOT 1 connector is bad!, those 2 things sticking out are called "pins" where the game card makes contact with the D, u need to get it replaced, u could buy it on Ebay, search for "SLOT 1 ds"
it's around $10-15
if u know how to fix electronics, .... u will need to solder it!... if u have warranty, send to Nintendo, or a repair shop!

Ds old slot pins bend


Its difficult to repair that without right tools, and even with the tools is still hard to do it.
Depending on how much bent are the pins you would need to rectify the bad pins with very small pliers or tweezers and a flashlight, you can also desolder the bent pins and take em out the slot to repair one by one and insert again in the slot. The most of the cases you would take the risk to break pins and then need to try the next solution.

Replace the whole Slot1 buying it on ebay or other place, or you can take it out from a parts DS, but you should need a soldering iron, blade and patience to get the slot1 out of the mobo. The ideal tool is a hot air soldering station but its very expensive. Or you can get a parts DS with good mobo and replace it for your bent slot one which is the best option.

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.
