Loose DC IN socket

Have identified my power problem as a loose DC In socket but not quite sure how to fix it, I need to fasten it down because it took a hit when my son dropped it and became loose. Any suggestions?

The power won't come back on

Make sure every cord is securely connected, sometimes they get loose! Make sure the electric socket is functioning too.

My nintendo ds lite console is not working when i put my game card.It does not recognise my game

Look down the game socket (slot1) to see if you have any bent pins, the problem you have seems to be quite a comman problem with all ds's.

There is a quick fix you could try but it involves opening the ds to get at the logic board, but if that seems a bit to much you could see if its still in warrenty.

First unscrew the screws on the back where the battery is and remove the cover, do it gently there are springs in the to left and right buttons and you dont want to loose them, once open you will see the metal cover of the game socket, gently press down with a small screw driver the two bottem corners and the middle of the cover to make a slight dent in each spot, this enables the card to fit more snug in the game socket therefore increaasing the connectio to the pins, give it a go its easier to do than desoldering the socket itself.

here is a diagram of the board and where to make the small dents

Three flashing red lights

3 red lights happens because the GPU and the CPU overheat and shut down to prevent damage, you will need to send it in to get it fixed, or you can fix it yourself using a good video guide

Quite often the power plug/socket/jack in the back of the PS2 slim console (YELLOW), Can become loose on the main board, or cracked, or simply internaly slack.
This will cause no power or intermittant power.
A loose one can be fixed by re-soldering and a cracked or slack oe needs to be replaced an exellent, Free, simple, 6 step guide for this job can be downloaded in PDF from
Spare Jacks/connectors can be found online but the cheapest source is ebay and one of the cheapest there is
Hope this helps!

Games won't play

the lid switch is loose or the support holding it has broken off, try looking at the lid switch inside your dreamcast, and for guest: you might want to do the same thing

Smart Cycle - Fisher Price

If your games are freezing up, or you are getting a garbled screen, or a split screen (solid color block on one side, black on the other)......spray some windex on the circuit board of the game cartridge and clean with q-tips. I know it sounds crazy; but I took the smart cycle apart this weekend trying to diagnose the problem. Ours kept having the above problems, and it seemed to me like a bad connection between the game cartridge and the "slot". Nothing worked until I finally tried the windex as a last ditch effort. WORKED LIKE A CHARM. Tried a game, didn't worked, cleaned with windex, works now no problem. This worked for all six of my game cartridges, when none of them would work before.
