Question about Nintendo DS Console

1 Answer

My ds isn't reading the edge card all of a sudden. Other games work fine, just the edge. I'm thinking it might be water damage from a humid room or a spilt drink that I wasn't aware of. Any help?

Try this you suspect the water damage from a humid room :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

Nintendogs dalmations isnt working in my console


Can you play other games on your system? If so, it's likely a problem with the cartridge. DS cartridges can be easily damaged and your system may not be reading it, even if the cartridge looks fine. The only option there is to replace the game.

If your DS isn't reading any of your games though, it's the DS's fault. You might have a bad DS.

My R4 revolution for DS isn't working! (It worked fine like yesterday while my cousin was playing it) usually it goes to the turning on screen of the DS and immediately to the loading screen opf the R4...


Hello there Sir/Madam! My name is Alex and I work under FixYa.com expert team surveillance.


Take out your card and clean it. Is it responding when you are using it on your pc trough USB? If not card is damaged, but most likely the socket for cards on Nintendo died, because those R4 cards are really proven as not damageable.


Hope this helped and/or advised you on your next move.Please rate my solution, thanks in advance. Wish you good day

When games are inserted into console they will not play


If you are inserting a DS card, be sure there are no foreign articles inside the slot. Blow into the DS card slot to clear any debris. Also be sure you are inserting the card all the way in until it clicks. I've also found that if you're powering on a game, and you bump, grasp or touch the ds card as the DS is powering on, that can cause it to not read games.

Check the actual DS card itself and carefully look at the exposed contacts on the circuit board. Be sure none of them are scratched, damaged or otherwise. A scratch can damage a contact, thus preventing proper data read.

If anything was spilled onto the DS card, be sure it is thoroughly cleaned with a damp cloth (no cleeaning chemicals!) If you immerse the DS card, or pour liquids on it, that may damage it as well.

Same points hold true for inserting a Gameboy Advance game (if you have a DS or a DS Lite. The DSi and DSiXL do not have Gameboy Advance slots.

If you turn on the DS and nothing happens, try a different DS Card. If it only happens with that one particular game (or games) your DS cards are damaged or need cleaning. If all your games are not playing, there is a problem with your DS. Try your games in a friend's DS just to make sure. You'll probably have to send the unit to Nintendo for repair, or take it to an authorized repair center.

A challenge dehumidifier not collecting water


If the room tempature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
I out mine over the floor drain.
Turn off and it will defost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifers work below a room temo of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensot from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.

Edge Ds card stuck on booting?


This could be a problem with your EDGE DS software. Check you have the right software by visiting the official EDGE DS website at edge-ds.cn (NOT edgei-ds.cn, this is a FAKE site).

If you want info for now to tell the difference between a real and fake iEDGE, just in case, check out:

Tell a Fake iEDGE
Fake iEDGE different packaging

If you're looking to buy an iEDGE card...

If you're EU/UK - Buy iEDGE from NDS-Gear
If you're US/Canada - Buy iEDGE from DSCardWorld

Good luck!

So many problem...what's wrong


Assuming you are using the "Edge" card.

You need to download http://www.edge-ds.cn/downloads/EDGE-OS-1.4.zip
Then unzip the file using 7Zip, of WinZip and
1. Clear your memory card.
2. Put all the files (from the unzipped file) onto your memory card.
3. Check it all works with the DS.
4. Remove memory card, load games.
5. Play.

For software updates and more, see http://www.edge-ds.cn/?lang=en&page=downloads
