Re: ds lite

You can try removing the battery and then putting it back in. My daughter had the same problem and that's what fixed it for us.

Re: ds lite

I think mine had this problem. It used to boot to the settings screen,where i would select what i wanted,then it would save and power off but when i rebooted it returned to the settings screen again. I found that by sticking a supercard in it(google it), it bypassed the settings screen. Mine now works fine all the time

How to i get to play two players on the Nintendo ds lite

You can play multiplayer games with a Nintendo DS Lite even if you don’t possess a copy of the game. If one of your friends has a multiplayer game card, they can use their Nintendo DS Lite as a host for the game session and you can join the multiplayer game.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Things You'll Need:
  • Nintendo DS Lite
    Using One Card to Host the Game
  1. Step 1 Look on the game’s packaging for the "Multiplayer" icon. If the game requires only one player to have a copy of the game, the icon will show two DS Lites: a DS Lite with a black screen transmitting waves to a DS Lite with a white screen. Below the two DS Lites is a range of numbers which indicates how many players the game can support.
  2. Step 2 Put the game card in the Nintendo DS Lite that is acting as the host for the multiplayer game session and start it up.
  3. Step 3 Have the other players turn on their systems. They will use the main menu screen to access the "DS Download Play" icon. They need to tap the icon to begin downloading the game information from the host DS Lite.
  4. Step 4 Begin playing when all of the systems have finished downloading the game information from the host.
  5. Multiple Cards for Multiple Players
  6. Step 1 Look at the "Multiplayer" icon. If every player in the game session needs a copy of the game in order to play, the icon will show two DS Lites, both with black screens, transmitting waves toward each other. A range of numbers is under this graphic and indicates how many people can play at one time.
  7. Step 2 Read the game's instruction manual on how to set up the game session. The steps required vary by company and sometimes by title within the same company.

Nintendo ds lite won't read card

had this problem, i looked into where the game goes and one of the little metal teeth was bent, so i took a long toothpick and gently pushed it back over now it works fine. Be careful that you dont break it off though.

Ds game pak will not work

Does your Nintendo DS Lite still have a warranty? If it does then send it in to Nintendo for repair.

Thing goes to game instead of the menu bar when DS game is in.

you can set the ds to auto load the game from the options menu, so turn off the system take out the game cards (both DS and advance games) and then turn on your system, that should cause your system to start displaying the pictochat/ ds download play screen at the bottom of this you will see a ds pic tap that and you can get into your settings and change them from auto to manual.

Hope that helps ;)

There is a DS Option Pak Inserted

okay: do not worry this is not a problem the the slot 2 cartridge is not a game and therefore cannot be played :) so there is nothing wrong with it. you can trust me on this one, I have one of these. The only thing this bottom cartridge is, is kind of like an adapter to connect to the computer. you should have recieved a usb cable that goes along with the cartridge. when your ds is turned off, you can connect the usb side of the cable to your computer, and the other side to the bottom cartridge, ( note that you should also have the slot 1 card in the top game slot while doing this ) then turn on your ds, and click on the the top game (not the option pack) then it should give you the option to go to usb mode. im sorry if i made this seem too complex, but you can email me at for more help, if you'd like :)

No Start Up Menu

turn it on without any cartridge inside, probably the menu will appear again.
