Hi,

Could be one of a few possibilities, First try giving the games cartridges metal contacts a clean ideally with a cotton bud and white spirit (if you don't have white spirit try avoiding anything soapy, try and stick to an alcohol based solvant such as nail polish removerMy Nintendo ds lite is showing in display that - 2_bing.gif).

If that doesn't work you can try cleaning the cartridge socket (slot1), you can buy proper cleaning cartridges for the DS lite, or, if your feeling brave you can get a jaye cloth, dampen it with an alcohol based solution (same as what is used to clean the cartridge) and thinly wrap it around a rigid ruler, which can then be gently placed into the slot to give it a bit of a clean.

If both of those fail you may find that some of the pins within slot1 are bent/snapped and so this will need to be fixed, If under warranty i'd suggest taking them in to get looked at. If they are not and you feel brave you can set about fixing it yourself, take the DS lite apart and have a look at the pins on the slot1 socket, if they are damaged you can buy a replacement socket on ebay, but be warned it is a tricky job to solder a new one on.

Just so you know I take no responsability for any damage that may occur whilst following these tips.

If you need any further help or advice feel free to message me and I will do my best to help you. (If it comes down to it, if you are local to Bedfordshire, UK I can always take a look at it for you).

Regards,

When i put in a game it says insert game cart


Well, I used to have the nintendo 64 and it would do the samething. Even my nintendo ds does it! But I think it is a common misread of the software. I've fixed my problems by:
1. Taking out game pak, and blow into game pak slot.
2. Try putting the game pak back into the slot.
3. Or blow onto the gamepak gentally, for it might just be dust build-up.

These may not work, but hopefully they will. They've worked for me before. For my ds I had mariokart in the slot and it didn't read the software but I took out the game pak and placed it back into the slot and it worked.

Game Pak not detected


Have you checked to see if any of the contacts in the actual console seem to be faulty?

If the problem is just with DS games, have a check by inserting a GBA game into the other side and see if it recognises it. That should tell you where the problem is. If there's a small bit of dust covering one of the contacts in the console, just blow into it a little and see if it comes free.
