My daughter has a pink nintendo dsi...for some reason it seems stuck it won`t play a game and the touch screen doesn`t work. it is under a year old and went to walmart where was bought and said to contact...


can you get the DSi connected to the Internet? Update the firmware on it. Specific information can be found at www.Nintendo.com. My daughter's DSi did the same thing, the problem cleared with the new firmware. If it doesn't resolve it, the tech support folks at Nintendo.com should be able to assist... they are a bit slow to respond... but be patient, they do know their stuff.
good luck,
Mark

Hello i download a game onto my psp slim and the game could not be played theres a msg say THE GAME COULD NOT BE PLAYED (80020148) PLS HELP!!!! and thanks


You need Custom Firmware on your PSP. This basically allows you to use stuff that does not come fromSONY. To learn how to put Custom Firmware on yourPSP,Googleit. Although the process of putting CF on yourPSPis legal, using copied games and stuff that you would normally have to pay for is not legal, so BEWARE! Also, the process is not foolproof any you may damage yourPSP. The difficulty of the process depends on the model and age of Official Sony Firmware of the PSP.

Cant play music


go to SETTINGS; then to NETWORK UPDATE, run this and it will update your psp to the newest firmware, maybe fixing any errors in the current firmware. Please let me know if this helps. You also must format your stick to the new firmware, just format once you have updated!

Sony psp slim component cable trouble


Okay the cables you bought they have five plugs. I assuming your tv doesn't have component input only RCA connections (RED, WHITE, YELLOW). SO in that case you bought the wrong jacks. You may want to keep them anyway if you upgrade your tv. Because these "component" cables is the only way you can play video games on the big screen and also has to be hd, but it also will be able to play music, view pics, and watch videos. But that's a different subject.

You need to buy RCA cables for your slim. Keep in mind though you will only be able to watch movies, pics, and music. You won't be able to play video games. Once you have those it's not hard to connect. All you do is from the XMB menu go to display settings click on "switch video output" and it should connect from there. Any more problems please feel free to ask.

Ps3 HDMI cable no audio


You might want to try another HDMI cable...the one you have may have a short in it. You can find HDMI cables for really cheap online so it's not a big deal to buy on eor two more as back up. Also, try changing the audio settings with in the BluRay or DVD itself. Sometimes the movies can default to an unsuppotred audio format.

Ds wont save settings


Sounds like corrupt firmware but there is no way to download new firmware or install it for the DS that i know of.

The DS may not have it but computers use a small watch battery to save this information. There could possibly be a small watch battery on the motherbaord for the DS that went bad and possibly if you replaced it it maybe hold it's time,date, etc. again.

I could be way off but it may help.

I did find a website that you can buy replacement parts to fix DS's.

The only thing you can buy that makes sense towards your problem is a new logic board.
