I can't get games working on my Nintendo DS.

Nintendogs- your microphone is probably dust-clogged or broken, otherwise, borrow a friends to see if it works there. if not, your dog will never learn his name

My Sims Kingdom- my Advance Wars-Days of Ruin did the same try (very carefully) opening the curved side of the DS card (My Sims) and check for, believe it or not, dust.

Ds lite microphone not working. help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi, The Ds microphone is relatively straight forward to replace and can be bought on eBay etc if you wished to fix it yourself. Alternatively if you contact a local DS retailer they will be able to put you in contact with nintendo who will fix it for a fee.

I don't know of anyway to bypass the activities in any games reliant on the microphone.

The Microphone on DS Lite won't respond.

It sounds like you either need to repair the microphone or you could buy a headset with microphone and see if that works as it plugs directly into the main board.

Nintendogs experience microphone problem


It is not the game that is here the problem. It is the DS Lite.
Your microphone is disabled by a defective connector at the front of your DS Lite.

I explain...

On the front left of youre DS Lite, there is a headset connection. Inside this connector (soldered on the mainboard of the DS Lite) there is a contact that shuts down the microphone on the top screen enclosure if this headset connector is used.
For some kind of reason (and I see a lot of them), this internal switch stay closed when a headset was inserted and removed again Result.....the microphone in the enclosure is always off.
I've even seen this problem without ever using a headset and the front connector.
The only way to solve your problem is to replace this headset connector by Nintendo or a DS Lite repair service
