Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

3 Answers

Nintendo ds lite slight water damage in the game insert areas...

This may sound odd - but my son has autism, and before i caught it, he would lick the games to try and fix them if they froze or anything. he also chewed on them. of course the chewed up games won't work...

the ds turns on but it won't read games...i'm guessing there is some slight corrosion in the game slots? is there a way to clean out just the slots without damaging it further? was thinking it might be possible since it couldn't have gotten very wet at all.

just wanting to see if i could salvage it, or find a place where they pair for parts.....

Dude just use alcohol pads. you see alcohol evaporates after using it which means it wont destroy your system because its meant to clean, so put it to use.

Makes slight crunch sound when game is inserted

You have damaged the spring release in the card slot. You could have a go at fixing it yourself but they are quiet tricky and it involves a bit of soldering and a tweezers. Alternatively you could send it to Nintendo if it is still under warranty (they should do it for free if it is under warranty as it is a fairly hard part to damage with out damaging the rest of the DS)

Nintendo Ds Lite

how long have you had the console for? if you havnt had it long (less than 12 months) you can get a free replacement or free repair where you got it from, one or two of the teeth where you insert your game might be damaged, see if you can get it sent back, if not local gaming repair shop, works out cheaper to get it fixed than buy a new one, for repairs usually £30-£35 new DS £99 or more, i hope you can get it sorted
