Tip it upside down or take the screws off, which you need a special screw driver for.

I am don't know how to install a chip. i don't have the instruction booklet. Help

If you need to insert a game made for the DS you'll find the slot by holding the unit so that both screens face your, then looking at the opposite side, on the thin edge, or the part that has the buttons.
If you need to insert a game made for the Gameboy Advance you'll find the slot facing you if you hold it with both screens facing you. A removable cover is in place to protect the system when this slot is not in use.
DS, and DS Lite devices have both slots. The newer DSi systems and the 3DS do not have an options to work with the Gamebody Advance cartridges.wswift_4.jpg

Ds game stuck inside wii

lol funny situation now maybe you should get either 2 very thin peices of wire or something sort of solid and fish it out or unscrew your console and if there are wires hanging from bits just dont touch them and keep unscrewing and remember were you took the things out from then when you get to the cd slot take the ds card out and that should work good luck

Broken ds lite. the games were inserted into slot 1 the wrong way round. the pins are bent.

The part with the damaged pins is the slot-1 port. I know it seems rediculous, but this part is too impractical for most people to attempt a repair.

However, if you are savvy enough to attempt the repair of the damaged pins on your DS Lite, here are my recommendations:
1) Cut a flap in the slot-1 port cover and straighten pins.
2) Replace the main board.
3) Remove the slot-1 port cover and straighten pins.
4) Remove the damaged pins from the slot-1 port and straighten.
5) Replace the slot-1 port.

All of these recommendations require disassembling the DS Lite using a specialized triwing (or Y) screwdriver and a lot of patience. The following video will help in disassembly:

Recommendations 3 to 5 all require solder work. Recommendation 3 requires solder work for 4 solder joints, 1 at each corner. Recommendation 4 requires solder work for up to 17 solder joints, one for each damaged pin. Recommendation 5 requires solder work for all 21 solder joints.

Hi. the same thing sometimes happens to me. but i find if i remove the cartridge and blow into it and the slot on the DS then insert the cartridge firmly back into the slot it will work. it seems that even the smallest speck of dust will affect it.
