    When I turn on my Nintendo DS lite, it will let me open a game. After
    about, two minutes, it freezes up. It's been doing that for about two
    months. Now it won't even let me turn it on. And it's fully charged.
    I've tried charging it again, rebooting it, and taking the battery pack
    out. Nothing has happened. Please help me!!!

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.

What everyones problem sounds like is that everyone seems to have fried thier firmware. (the programing that allows your system to run. handhelds of all sorts are a pain for this mainly because they have to run not only the console but also the screen as well) no known soloution exists ecxept to get it repaired by someone

What you do is take out your game then blow into the game holder if that does not work put the game in again and when you play put some sort of clamping device to hold your top screen down. do not forget to push your top screen back the whole way it can go!

I had this same problem and when I looked inside the cartridge slot, I noticed the gold prongs were bent and 2 were touching. I think one of my kids tried to shove the cartridge in backwards. Carefully straighten out any bent gold prongs.

Don't play the game for a couple days and try playing other games then just one game every time you turn your system off take the game card out too if when you put your game in and it doesnt show up blow in the slot and the game if that doesnt work repeat and lick the game prongs just a little thats what i do :] hope i helped

If your ds light or ds was dropped hard and wont turn on but the light showes ON. to fix leave it for about a month OFF. then come back to it and smack the bottom and the top 2 times each not to light not to hard then turn it ON and it should work. MAY TAKE A FEW TRIES. TRUST ME THIS WORKED FOR MEE 100%!!!!!!!11

Did you mean action replay. if you did what it does is hacks your game and when you do you could potentially ruin your game or in a rare case you DS so that could be why.

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
