Use a magnifying glass and check the metal pins that connect to the game. Look for any pins that seem low, these mat not be touching the games connectors. If that doesn't work, i'm afraid it's more likely to be a fault on the main curcuit board; Or get rid of it on eBay on a Sunday, you'll probably get £35-£45 as it is.
Hope this helps?

I just bought a nintendo ds from ebay. Came in case with a charger - i turn it on and it says 'There is no DS cad inserted' and 'There is no Game Pak inserted'. I assume by Game Pak they mean 'a game' and...

No, you dont need to buy a ds card, ds card is another word for a ds game, also game pak is also another word for a game boy advance game. so don't worry about it and enjoy your ds : )

The only solution is to change the battery if thats the case.
