Question about Nintendo DS Lite
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 remover).
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.
