Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

Everytime I put in a game, it takes maybe 30 times to get it to finally work. Any tips on how to make it work THE FIRST TIME?

Sorry for double post, my first time

Additional step but be careful! I found my kids were licking the game cartridges to get them to play in their two DS lites. Finally none would play. Cleaned the game cartridges with 80% alcohol dampened (not dripping) Q-Tips, gently wipe w/clean cloth, and allow to dry. Still none worked. Figured the game slot pin were coated in spit or oxidized. Took a cheap thin emery board for doing nails, used the fine side toward the pins and gently (going directly in and out so as not to bend the pins sideways) abraded the pins. Blow gently to remove any dust. Now both machines see all cards all the time.

Try cleaning both slots. And turn off, put in game, then turn on.

No power to Wii...checked all connections and seems to be connected properly...no blue light and power light not on...unit is less than 1 yr old!!!


I've seen this problem many times where I work, everytime there is a storm someone comes in with this problem, and everytime I plug it up at the store and it works and they never bring it back with a problem. You should try pluging it into different outlets(actual outlets not surge protectors) and maybe even take it to another location and test it. Sounds overly simple but has work 100% of the time for me.

Put game into action replay and it says insert game card help


I had the exact same problem as you, and I solved it. The only way to do it is to keep inserting and taking out the game card, and blowing into the DS card slot and the gold things on the lower back of the game card. After doing this about 3-5 times, the action replay should finally get the message that there is a game card in the slot. Hope this helps!

Gamecube won't read disks.


run a cd cleaner in the console, see if that works , you can buy them at any music store or even most suermarkets, or the laser could need ajusting , which will mean you need to take it to a service place, laser adjusting is not exspensive ,
