Question about LG Vu CU920 Cellular Phone
It all of a sudden is not recognizing there is a ds game in it, and when it does and I can play, it may lock up. When I turn it off and back on, it most likely won't recognize it again. All games. I've blown in it (the usual nintendo fix-all lol). On the Nintendo page, it looks like I'll have to send it in for a repair of $75 to $85...at which point I should prob just spend the extra $ and buy a new updated ds. Any way it doesn't have to be repaired? Something I could do?
HI the problem is more than likely going to be that the solder has come loose from the connection that connects to the game, but a few things you can check are make sure their is no build up of dust or fluff in the game slot give it a good blow out to be sure.
then make sure the games connectors are clean if it wont play any game then the problems is with the ds and not the game so rule this out if its all the games that dont work,
one trick you can try is to let your ds go totally flat keep it switched on until it switches off then keep switching it back on until it no longer comes on doing this ensures their is no static build up left in the ds that could be causing the problem, now give it a full charge then switch it on without a game in and check it still opperates as normal without the game in. now switch it back off and put a game in push it in as far as you can before letting go to ensure their has been a good connection doing this will loosen up any dust or fluff build up then switch it on and see if it works or not.
If after doing that it still dont work then the only real option would be repair now sending it off to nintendo would be to expensive instead you should try a local phone shop as these often do ds repairs and should be a lot cheaper so give them a try first, the price you have been given would not be worth paying as you dont need to add much more to buy a newer ds.
im sorry their is no easy fix for this as it will need new parts so unless the options i gave you work then your best bet would be to buy new on or try a phone shop for repair, or if your ok with taking things apart what you could do is buy another broken ds that has say a broken screen, you can buy these for next to nothing of the well known auction site and then you can put your screen into the damaged ds and then you will have one working for next to nothing.
you should even be able to find a guide on how to take the ds apart whitch will make it easier for you if you are going to do the work yourself.
