Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
I had the same problem on my sons DS. I sprayed the card on the electrical connection with WD-40 because I didn't have contact cleaner. I then inserted/ejected the card 5 or 6 times and now it works perfect! Problem solved....Good luck.

Had this problem too. Solved it by cutting a small piece of thin card (cigerette box} or anything similar , and inserting it along with the r4 card to make it a tighter fit.Insert it in the back side of the r4 card, not the side with the metal contacts.hope this helps.

Problem Solved: Look into the socket where the cartridge is inserted and count the number of pins you see.
If it is less than 17, then you have a contact pin that has broken off or is bent to the point it can no longer be seen and is not making contact with the cartridge.
If you have warranty, take it back and have them replace the unit, if you don't have warranty you have to take the unit apart and replace the socket yourself. (WARRNING) if you have no experience with soldering, do not attempt this!
I have 30+ years in electronics and have taken these units apart, and have always found pins missing or bent over to the point of not making contact.
Hope this helps!
