Re: stolen ds

Turn in the theft to the police. They check serial numbers from pawn shops. Go luck thought, they really don't care.

Re: stolen ds


It not possible for a customer to track a stolen or lost Nintendo DS or DS lite.

It may be possible for nintendo itself to track a stolen unit via the item serial, in the case the new owner try to register the unit in their web site, or send the unit to repair, or via the mac address only in the case the new owner log into a nintendo wifi online internet game server.

Though personally never heard about nintendo doing that to none of their products and that may be because they don't care about units that were stolen or changed owner.

How can i find my stolen PSP

Unfortunately, there is no feature built into the psp to find it if it was stolen. Heck, even expensive items such as iphone and stuff is hard(close to impossible) to track down if stolen. I know the iphone 4 has a feature for you to "track" it if you choose to enable it, but good luck with that. Company really don't care if your stuff gets lost or stolen. They care about their wallet. Save up your money and buy another one.

My son bought a nintendo ds points card and the id # got scratched of the back. the only #s identifiable are the first two and last two. is there any way we can still use the card?

Unfortunitally, you will need all of the numbers in order to redeem the card. If you purchased it new, exchange it for a new one. If the ID number was scratched off, that most likely means someone scratched it and wrote down the numbers to use it without paying. If not, try contacting Nintendo's Support Center and see if they can help you.

Since using mariokart my ds keeps freezing and i havet o turn it off and restart-which means i lose what ive just done. it happens to the other ds as well but only since we put mariokart in it. my son...

My thought on this matter is that the mariokart game cartridge is bending the pins in the game socket (slot1) i maybe wrong but original cartridges have little plastic groves between the copper tracks, if one of these has been damaged some how ie: my son bit the end of his lol!, it could bend one or more of the pins inside the socket and therfore causing your problem, and a new socket is needed. Cheaper than buying a new ds, but requires good soldering skills.
As for the virus theory you never know, but i havent herd of one affecting the ds ....Yet!!

My sons ds lite has a jammed l button please help

with a special tri screw driver open up the DS from underneath theres about 6-7 screws, hidden one's are under battery in the corner, one in game card slot and two under the rubber padsRemove slot 2 cover. Carefully ease the back off the L and R buttons are spring loaded so hold them down so you don't loose track of how they are fitted. If the micro button has to be replaced then you will need to solder it in. The part is about £5. If you are in the UK and can't find anyone to fix it get back to me.

We think a neighbor girl spilled liquid on/in my son's DS Lite. It now won't power on and the orange light will stay on for only a minute or two when we attempt to charge the unit. The battery is good......

If the DS was turned on when the liquid was spilled on it I don't think there is much hope to be honest:(

If it's under warrenty send it back otherwise you might try taking it apart and use a hair dryer to dry it off... that's a long shot though!

Lost my nintendo ds lite

No way on the internet that I know about but if you file a police report with your local PD then they can take your information and if somebody trys to sell it to a pawn shop or something like that then at least it will be on a hot list and you would have a way of getting the DS back.
