Question about Nintendo DS Console
We have several games that were not working on a DS. Thought it was the DS and purchased a new DS. Games still don't work. Is there a way to test/fix the cartridge?
1. Use a q-tip to gently rub the gold-colored electrical contacts on the cartridge. You can use a bit of hydrogen peroxide or cleaning alcohol, but be sure to let it dry completely (12-24 hours) before putting it back in the DS.
2. Use a pencil eraser to gently clean the electrical contacts. No need for liquid, but be sure to gently remove any residue from the eraser before you plug in the cartridge.
3. Buy and use some electrical contact cleaner on the contacts. This is available in places like Radio Shack and usually comes in a small aerosol bottle with a little brush attached. Again, let it dry before inserting it in the DS.
