Is it just the plastic casing? If it is just the casing and not the circuit board, I would imagine using a little super glue, or even tape!

If it does not run because there is a crack on the circuit board within the cartridge, then I think you'd be better off getting re-purchasing the game used at gamestop or something.

Hope this helps,
Bill

I have Saints Row download but the binksetspeakervolumes_@20 is not in the folder and the game dont started


I know how to fix that there should be a file named crack in the .iso . just use 7 zip to open the Image file that is on your Hard Disk,extract the folder named crack, then locate the game files you have installed. once located copy the contents of the folder you have recently extracted (crack) into the game files and overwrite any files of the same name as the extracted (including Game.exe). That`s it. this might not work and some cracked games don`t nead this but if there are problens with the game you should try it . this fixed my problems on Portal 2 , Raymam legends , and a little bit on Cars 2.

I had just repaired two of these with the same problems, and ran into two different solutions! First solution is too check with a little flash light inside the game cartridge area where you insert the game for bent pins that may contact each other when the game is inserted, the solution is to take apart and repair the bent pins by straightening them out, or buy a new cartridge holder from ebay to solder on the board. This fixes no read and shut down of ds, and is a permanent fix, until someone jams a cartridge back in and bends the pins again.

The other fix, is to buy a new motherboard I found that one had a circuit malfunction which caused this issue.

Most likely and a lot of times it is in fact bent pins causing this because when inserting the game into the cartridge area over and over with force or putting it in backwards and forcing it by someone that doesn't know any better will create the problem and that leaves you two options I stated above: If you can fix the bent pins you might have success, if you can solder, you can replace the game cartridge on the motherboard, and or replace motherboard if that failed. If you don't do none of these you have the option to get it repaired, sell it back on eBay.
The pins are fragile and can be bent in ways not repairable in that case you would safe time and effort to buy a game cartridge on line, cheap few bucks, and solder it onto motherboard to fix your issue.
Just look for game cartridge slot reader for your type of ds on eBay! Good Luck!

I newd GBA SP help!


throw the black one away. just like any cartridge gaming console they all need to be cleaned once in a while. try using a q-tip and rubbing alcohol to clean the game cartridge. never blow directly into the game cartridge use your shirt or any type of cloth to blow through. the condensation from your breath will corrode the contacts.

My dsi wont play games eveytime i put it in the game in the slot it wont pop up, so i cant play game. i went to a game store to see if he could fix it, he said that its either to old or somthing got in it...


It is possibly either dirty or bent contacts in the cartridge slot. If the game slides in and out easily then the pins are possibly not bent.... if it does not the pins are bent and you will need the slot replaced or replace the unit.

You can use a Emery board (Yes nail file) push the board in and of of the cartridge slot. Make sure the motion is only in and out no side to side or you risk bending the pins.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like your cartridges may be dirty and the system is having problems reading them. To clean the cartridges you will need some rubbing alcohol and some q-tips. Using the q-tips, dip them into the alcohol and clean the contacts (those are the shiny metallic pins on the circuit board underneath the cartridge) with them. Be sure to get both sides of the board and let it air-dry for an hour or so. Hopefully this will solve your problem since you say two of them still work fine.

Cracked disk


There is no way to fix a cracked disk without spending a lot of money and it would be hard to find someone to fix as it would be very hard to fix yourself. My advice is to rebuy the game.

It is a pokemon trading card game nintendo gameboy video game.


The little golden connector thingies (sorry I forget what they're called) on the bottom of your cartridge are either dirty or damaged.
Try tilting the cartridge at a slight angle while it's in the Gameboy, either forward, back, or to either side.
Sometimes it puts pressure on the right spot to make it work.
Other than that, try cleaning the surface of them.

Its chapter 8 with the aunt seen


try go to www.megagames.com and go to pc fixes on the side bar. Then you just simply fin your game, game fixes and download a no-cd crack. After this you put the cracked exe file in the folder where youre install files and other files for the game is( example. C:programfiles/EA GAMES/ sims life stories/ ) you might want to save your original exe file in another folder so if the crack don't work you have the original exe, but just put the crack in the folder where youre game is =)
