Question about LG Vu CU920 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Nintendo ds not recognizing a game is in it.

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 $ 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?

    Thank you soo much for your help!! Some games do work though, but not always the same games.... My 1 yr old found it the other day and, while it was on, took the game out--and back in--I found her in a corner just click click clicking I could see that it may be screwed. I haven't tried that particular game in any other ds to see if she screwed that up too. I will definitely try running it dry...thanks soooo much for your help!!

    Thank you soooo much for your help!!! Some games will work in it, but it's not always the same ones. My 1 yr old found it the other day and I found her in a corner just clicking the game in and out while it was on, so I could see how that screwed it up. I haven't tried that game in any other ds to see if it's screwed up too. I will def try letting it run dry..and if not try to get a quote from a phone store--which I never would've thought of!! Thanks again for your help!!!

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.

I got the following message on my dsi: "A error

"An Error Occurred. Press and hold POWER to turn the system off."
When do you see this error?

  1. If you see this error while playing a Nintendo DS game card game:
    There are no known issues that create this error with any Nintendo DS game card games. Our experience shows that if you see this error, your game is likely a counterfeit product. To test your Nintendo DS game card, try this testing tip:

      • Try playing the game in a Nintendo DS Lite or a Nintendo DS (original style).
        • If the game still does not work, it's more likely the game card is defective and will need to be replaced.
        • If the game works in either a Nintendo DS or Nintendo DS Lite, our experience shows that the game is likely a counterfeit product.

  2. If you see this error when there is no Nintendo DS game card inserted into your system:
      • If you have not already done so, power the system off and then back on to see if this resolves the issue. If the issue persists after the system has been powered down, please call our Consumer Department at 1-800-255-3700 to speak to one of our representatives.

Nintendo ds won't start pokemon diamond game

Do you know anyone else who has a nintendo ds (doesn't have to be lite)? If so, try the game in that sytstem, and if the same thing happens, then the game has a glitch. This tends to happen a lot with plenty of my handheld games, and i find that it helps if you blow into the game cartridge, and also into the cartridge hole. If that doesn't work, try repeatedly turning the game on and off. And if that doesn't work, try going to

Nintendo DS message... "Unable to load data. Turn the power off and resinsert the Game Card."

Well maybe when you turn it on, it might be on manual mode. To switch it to auto mode, Press options then press the wrench and then find auto or manual mode and then, switch it to auto mode. Save the options and then it should play the game. If it doesn't work, blow into the DS game and then the DS game slot.
