Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

DS games will not play

Neither of the DS games that we have will play for more than a few minutes if at all. The screen will freeze or the game will just not load. Do I need to buy a new game or a new DS?

Re: DS games will not play

Well first try charging the ds. If that doesn't help and you've bought numerous games that all don't work then there is something wrong with the system. You'd need to bring it back to the store where you got it and explain the problem to the clerk. Ask for an exchange for a new one.

Nintendo DS Lite Turns on sometimes, but not every time

It may be a bad DS or if you have a game in before the DS fully loads the game's connection is stopped somehow.

DS lite freezes during game play

their are 3 solutions but i cant asure that it will work
1. maybe when they play ds games like pac n roll the ds cardejects for some reason so sulution 1 is put tape ontop of the ds gamecard slot while their playin a ds game
2 maybe when they play a gba game the game pak is being hit by their chests or bellies so the card is moving a bit and the game freezes so put a big distance between the ds and the chest or belly
3. dont wiggle the ds alot and do you drop it often because if it is dropt often the ds will freeze often

Blank white screen

Try using some alcohol to clean the contacts of the card and leave some on and reinsert a few times - leave to evaporate and try again - sounds like dirty contacts!

Game freezes

you need the game in the slot in order for it to work. While playing a game, it is also possible to accidentally jerk or emove the game card. This does cause freezing. I have also heard that there is a way for your ds to automatically start a game. Has this happened to you? Finally, I would suggest to refering to your ds manual.

My Nintendo DS Lite keeps freezing. It will play for a bit then freeze. When I turn the power off then play it, but then freezes again! Any answers?

Try this as it will restore the DS to factory settings.

Remove the battery cover off the back of the unit. (One small Philips screw.)

Remove the battery.

Leave the system without the battery for 10-15 minutes.

Replace the battery.

Re-install the battery cover.
