Ds says "There is no DS Card inserted" when there

There is most likely a problem with the connectors in the DS or the cartridge. Try putting rubbing alcohol on a q-tip and cleaning the DS Card's connectors (don't drench it). Let it dry completely before putting the cartridge back in.

My son's Dsi XL just started to not recognize when a game cartridge is inserted, it will appear if I push and hold the cartridge down, but not stay on as supposed to.

the card reader is broken you need to either call Nintendo to fix it or get a 3rd party to fix it you can go to craigslist and search ds repair and you will get people to do it for a less fee then Nintendo make sure you take some on along with you

Game is stuck inside ds

the game is probably in backwards. if you can still see the top of the cartridge then try and use a butter knife to push it out. Hold the DS so that the knife and cartridge will slide away from you and press the knife down on the small lip at the top of the cartridge and forward.

Action replay crashed

First, turn on your Action Replay, and after the warning screen for the DS Pops up, hold these four buttons: A+B+SELECT+START, the white screen will stay up longer than normal, but just be patient.

When the menu screen pops up, let go of the buttons

Plug your DS (Action Replay) to your computer and you should be ready to input games and codes again.

Action Replay DS

All you need to do is, when you have those blue and red lines, means the codes are corrupted. To fix this, you will have to reset the Action Replay. To do that, you need to do this:

1. Hold down the A and B buttons before turning the console on.
2. Turn the Ds on while still holding the A and B, but when the health and safety screen comes up, hold down Start and Select too, so you now have 4 buttons held down.
3. Keep holding all 4 down until the main screen of the Action Replay appears. You'll have no games, which is no worry now because you can hook it up to the computer and update your AR with all the games again.

Hope this helps!
