I bought a brand new DS lite online, it functions perfectly when switched on, but when I insert a game card it immediately switches itself off. if I insert the game card before turning the DS on, then it...

I had just repaired two of these with the same problems, and ran into two different solutions! First solution is too check with a little flash light inside the game cartridge area where you insert the game for bent pins that may contact each other when the game is inserted, the solution is to take apart and repair the bent pins by straightening them out, or buy a new cartridge holder from ebay to solder on the board. This fixes no read and shut down of ds, and is a permanent fix, until someone jams a cartridge back in and bends the pins again.

The other fix, is to buy a new motherboard I found that one had a circuit malfunction which caused this issue.

Most likely and a lot of times it is in fact bent pins causing this because when inserting the game into the cartridge area over and over with force or putting it in backwards and forcing it by someone that doesn't know any better will create the problem and that leaves you two options I stated above: If you can fix the bent pins you might have success, if you can solder, you can replace the game cartridge on the motherboard, and or replace motherboard if that failed. If you don't do none of these you have the option to get it repaired, sell it back on eBay.
The pins are fragile and can be bent in ways not repairable in that case you would safe time and effort to buy a game cartridge on line, cheap few bucks, and solder it onto motherboard to fix your issue.
Just look for game cartridge slot reader for your type of ds on eBay! Good Luck!

I have a broken ink cartridge holder on a lexmark 730 is saying ink cartridge missing

Hi David,

Unless you have a very expensive printer or you know of a store that has a wide range of used printers, it won't be worth your time and money to order a new cartridge tray for your printer.
I would suggest buying a new 730 series printer and keeping the old one for spares.
If however you're curious as to the price of a new cartridge holder it would be your best bet to browse to and do a parts enquiry from the website.
Best wishes,

The print cartidge is missing

Please note the printer make and model and visit any computer shop - disclose the model name there they will give you the perfect cartridge. If you know how to fit the cartridge then well but if you don't then unpack the cartridges and please remove the plastic tape from the cartridge head or it will not work, open printer cover up - notice the empty cartridge holder in the printer, there you notice black and color cartridge holder. Look to the cartridge and holder you will understand the position of the cartridge to fit, now push the lower portion of any cartridge to the holder and give a very low pressure on the top (backward pressure to fit the in the holder). Same way you fit the next cartridge. Close the printer cover down. Print any document - it will definitely print.

I can't seem to install the ink. Am I missing a piece, do the ink carts go into something?

You are not missing anything. The cartridge holder should automatically position itself at the one of either side of the printer when you open the cover, whereby you can remove the old ones and install the new ones. If the cartridge holder fails to place itself at the proper position, turn the printer off and DISCONNECT THE POWER CABLE then try to manually move it to the proper spot (far right or left depending on the type of your printer) and install new cartridges.

My Lexmark 4800 version x4850 says there's a cartridge missing!

This can be one out of two things. Either a faulty cartridge, or the cartridge holder. If you still have the old cartridge, insert that one. If now it only displays 'Cartridge Empty', it means that the printer can see the cartridge, and it's your new cartridge that is faulty. If it's still showing Cartridge Missing, it's most likely your printer that is faulty. In either case, you should contact Lexmark Technical Support and they'll provide you with a solution. 

You can also try cleaning the contacts in your cartridge Holder with a dry cloth.

My printer smears or misses printing part of the page. I turned it off and it still does it.

Your cartridges either need to be cleaned or re-aligned. Your printer should have these options. Try them. It should work. There could be something blocking the copper pins in the printer, where the cartidge meets the printer. Check to make sure this area is clean and there is no ink covering these areas. Also check that the cartridge is clean also. If this doesn't work, buy a new cartridge. If that doesn't work, I'm afraid you may have to buy a new printer. Cheers.
