Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

Nintendo DS Lite

My daughter's Ds Lite has started loading games immediately after turning on, bypassing the Nintendo screen with Picto chat, clock etc. The unit is only 1 month old. This happens with any cartridge we use. Without a cartridge in it loads to the original screen as normal.

Re: Nintendo DS Lite

First, you take your ds card out of the slot and next go to the settings then tap the pink box with the wrench in it go the box with the arrow in it select manual mode. your daughter must've had it on auto mode. you can tell by keeping the ds card out on auto mode on the colored bar at the top of your touch screen at the right there is a little box with an "A" in it. that means you're in auto mode.

Re: Nintendo DS Lite

I'm not to familiar with the DS's but i beleive that is how they are supposed to boot if a cartridge is already in the unit. If not then there may be an option when booting without a cartridge where you can change the settings so that it will boot to the main DS screen before booting the game. I would check this first then seek further help from a more adequate expert on here.

Picto chat

If the controls aren't messed up anymore, the DS should be fine. Just don't let him use picto chat anymore. If the controls are still messed up; take the DS to Nintendo for help, Explaining EXACTLY what happened.

If you explain what happened; Nintendo will be able to fix this stuff from now on, creating firmware to prevent hackers.

Honestly, I've never heard of anything like this before, but it sickens me, knowing that people will just screw with other peoples' EXPENSIVE stuff, just because it makes them feel superior.

DS Lite flight mode?

The Nintendo DS LIte itself is in flight more or it's called "not connected". Unless you activated the Picto-Chat or any wireless games (Download Play, WiFi), the nintendo ds isnt emitting any wireless signals.

You can only contact people if they are within 10 metres of you on pictochat , but if you have a wireless router i think you can speak 2 people around the world.
