Its possible that your mic is gunked up, try cleaning it with compressed air.

Re: THe blowing thing does not work

If that doesn't fix it it may be that the mic (white cable) has become unplugged on the main (bottom) board or that the solder connection on to the microphone has broken. If it's either of those it's an easy fix but would invalidate any remaining warranty, if any warranty is outstanding and the unit hasn't been abused then contact Nintendo and they should repair or replace it.

I have a nds lite not recognising any games inserted into it(original ds games) just says no game inserted......yes i have blown on it yes i have tried several other games and they all say the same thing,...

The reader is probably dusty. Try to blow in it to release dust then get a clean small cloth and wipe both the game card and the readers in the console.

I had my ds ruined by stupid things my brothers did(not involving water), and now my ds card that was in it is unable to load on any of our dses. I've tried blowing, i've tried cleaning it. What else can I...

Additional step but be careful! I found my kids were licking the game cartridges to get them to play in their two DS lites. Finally none would play. Cleaned the game cartridges with 80% alcohol dampened (not dripping) Q-Tips, gently wipe w/clean cloth, and allow to dry. Still none worked. Figured the game slot pin were coated in spit or oxidized. Took a cheap thin emery board for doing nails, used the fine side toward the pins and gently (going directly in and out so as not to bend the pins sideways) abraded the pins. Blow gently to remove any dust. Now both machines see all cards all the time.

Games wont play. Problems with Disk player

If you don't have the tools to open your 360 go to best buy or an office supply store and get a can of compressed air and blow the dust out of the dvd drive. If that doesn't work then the lens needs to be cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. This has worked for me on numerous occasions.

MLB The Show '09 PS3 game and controller issue

Corrupt game data is the problem.

You need to delete the game data under the "GAME" category.

You might lose your progress...but it's better than not being able to play at all.

If that doesn't work you can do a backup, quick restore.

If that still doesn't work a FULL restore is in order.

Won't read disc

sounds like the laser's stuffed. the lasers in those machines are notoriously bad. you'd best be careful. a dodgy laser will cause laser-burn to the discs. i had the same thing on my machine. i could play a couple of games, then there was some that would work after i took them out and put them in, several times. after fixing the laser, ive not had the problem again.

Snes works at game testing store, but not my tv. What's going on?

Nintendo solved the problem with the whole "you gotta blow the dust off the card and jam the game in right to play" thing when they brought out the SNES.

But in time, well, you gotta blow off the games.

Use your old NES Ninja tricks to get it to work. Blow the games out, blow out the slot. It should make it work.

Good luck man!

I have the first nintendo and I am trying to get it to turn on a game but all I see is a flashing screen with colors

Oh, boy. My first system! Typical fixes for that system involve turning off, blow into the cartridge, and reinseritng the cartridge, then turn back on. Some games I used to have were extremely fussy and you had to do this several times before it worked.

Nintendo ds won't start pokemon diamond game

Do you know anyone else who has a nintendo ds (doesn't have to be lite)? If so, try the game in that sytstem, and if the same thing happens, then the game has a glitch. This tends to happen a lot with plenty of my handheld games, and i find that it helps if you blow into the game cartridge, and also into the cartridge hole. If that doesn't work, try repeatedly turning the game on and off. And if that doesn't work, try going to
