Nintendo Ds Sound Problem

My wife says she played ds lite earlier -- no sound problem at all. However she went back to play it five hours later and now no sound from speakers. It is giving off sound with headphones. Nothing was done to the system between plays. Volume is on. Anything else we can do without considering sending it in for repair?

Re: Nintendo Ds Sound Problem

This option is only suitable for out of warranty devices as opening it violates the warranty.

Open the device and look for loosen or unplugged cables in the main bottom board. Usually this dont happen though opening and closing the unit whe it was not assembled correctly may cause the wires and conductors to loosen or even worst to get cut by the moving parts. So as you say nothing else was done with the unit between plays that is the only explanation I can guess from it.

The headset plug is in the bottom main board so no cables are required to get the audio there, though as the speakers are in the top, these require some flexible cables and conductors running throught the hinges to the top part.

Hope to this info to be helpful: How to dismantle an Original Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video in youtube:

Good Luck...

My DS Lite wont charge! Help!

Try another charger, yours may be faulty. Alternatively,the battery may need replacing as it is no longer holding charge, these can be obtained very inexpensively from Ebay and you will just need a small cross head screwdriver to remove the cover on the back of the DS lite, then tap the unit in your hand to dislodge and remove the battery.

My Nintendo DS quit playing sound through the speakers. It only has sound through headphones. One minute it was working then the battery went dead. After I plugged it to the charger the sound does not...

Try leaving the DS on until the battery dies, then charge it all of the way with the DS off. If that doesn't work, I would call Nintendo customer service. They are excellent at helping people with problems just like this. Here is the 800 number I got off of their website. 1-800-895-1672

The sound of my new nintendo ds lite is very quit

Hi Susan,

It is possible that the volume button has slipped off of it's setting on the switch below it and that while you think you have turned the volume up it is only partially turned up.

If it is a new DS bring it back to the shop (12 month warranty on new DS systems) they are obliged to repair or replace the DS.

DS lite only playing one type of game

Reset Factory Settings for Nintendo DS 1. Use a small screwdriver to unscrew the back cover.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Wait a few seconds.
4. Replace battery.
5. Turn on DS.
6a. If you have to re-enter your nick-name/time and date etc, it has worked! Go to 7.
6b. If not, remove the battery again and wait longer.
7. Replace cover and screw back in place.
