The whole hand held console is completely damaged inside of the core, have you ever dropped it? There is no way for yourself to repair it, take it to where it was bought from and get it sent off for repairs.

Tip

DS Lite Slot -1, games cartridge not reading games repair / resolution.


Hi,

Has your slot -1 games cartridge reader stopped working? Is it being temperamental with your cartridges? Here are a few tips to get your DS lite back to full working order.

1) First try giving the games cartridges metal contacts a clean, ideally with a cotton bud and white spirit (if you don't have white spirit try avoiding anything soapy, if you can try to stick to an alcohol based solvant such as nail polish remover).

2) If that doesn't work you can try cleaning the cartridge socket (slot1), you can buy proper cleaning cartridges for the DS lite, or, if your feeling brave you can get a jaye cloth, dampen it with an alcohol based solution (same as what is used to clean the cartridge) make sure it is well wrung out so that the cloth is only slightly damp and thinly wrap it around a rigid ruler, which can then be gently placed into the slot to give it a bit of a clean.

3) If both of those fail you may find that some of the pins within slot1 are bent/snapped and so this will need to be fixed, If under warranty i'd suggest taking them in to get looked at. If they are not and you feel brave you can set about fixing it yourself, take the DS lite apart and have a look at the pins on the slot1 socket, if they are damaged you can buy a replacement socket on ebay, but be warned it is a tricky job to solder a new one on.

To solder the replacement slot -1 on firstly you will need to remove the old one, take care not to damage the pcb tracks when doing this as it will cause the replacemet process to be far more difficult and a purchase of a track repair fluid may be needed. Your best option is to de-solder it buy removing the exisiting solder to free it from the motherboard. Once you have done this you need to put the new one on, take great care not to fuse any of the pin connections together with the solder as this will cause the DS great problems and break it. Re assemble the DS lite and give it a try.

If you need help with taking the DS lite apart please refer to my other tips and tricks posted on here.

Just so you know I take no responsability for any damage that may occur whilst following these tips.

Tip

DS Lite microphone repair tips.


Hi,
If your built in microphone on your DS lite is not working then there are
5 things I can suggest for you before you go ahead and buy a new one for replacement.

1) Make sure your volume is up, you may not be hearing it picking up (sounds obvious but worth a try).

2) Use a wooden coctail stick or similar and CAREFULLY remove any lint/fluff that may have collected in the mic slot (be careful not to dig too deep as this will damage the mic).

3) Use a hairdryer on a low setting to dry out any spittle that may have collected in the mic (please be careful not to let the ds get too hot as this will cause serious damage).

4) Test your external mic port by either connecting a mic if you have one and if not get a slither of metal (such as a sewing needle or small/precision flat-head screwdriver) and give it a wiggle in the mic port. (the mic port is the rectangled hole with two metal pins in it net to the 3.5mm headphone jack), if you get a reaction thats a good sign and shows that, if it comes down to it you can use an external mic until you get the problem sorted.

and finally...

5) I must stress that this last tip requires you to have a steady and gentle hand... plus a bit of congidence :).
Use a sewing needle or pin to gently pry the two metal pins in the mic jack upwards, the front of the pins are fixed but further back the pins float, you need to raise these enough to sever the connection these pins are making as when these pins are making a connection they over-ride the internal mic.

If all these five tips fail to work for you then your only option is to replace the microphone, it can easily be done with basic/moderate D.I.Y skills. A replacement DS lite microphone is readily avaliable and cheap on ebay. If you need help with a microphone replacement please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to help you out.

I hope this helps and would like to say I accept no responsability for any damage that may occur to your ds lite when following my tips.

My Nintendo ds lite is showing in display that There is no Game Pak inserted after inserting Gam Pak and then power on.


Hi,

Could be one of a few possibilities, First try giving the games cartridges metal contacts a clean ideally with a cotton bud and white spirit (if you don't have white spirit try avoiding anything soapy, try and stick to an alcohol based solvant such as nail polish remover2_bing.gif).

If that doesn't work you can try cleaning the cartridge socket (slot1), you can buy proper cleaning cartridges for the DS lite, or, if your feeling brave you can get a jaye cloth, dampen it with an alcohol based solution (same as what is used to clean the cartridge) and thinly wrap it around a rigid ruler, which can then be gently placed into the slot to give it a bit of a clean.

Just so you know I take no responsability for any damage that may occur whilst following these tips.

If you need any further help or advice feel free to message me and I will do my best to help you. (If it comes down to it, if you are local to Bedfordshire, UK I can always take a look at it for you).

Nintendo ds lite


Well one things for sure if you dont play with it the ds wouldnt just refuse to play, have u dropped it on has any water been splashed on it? If you have then thats what has caused the problem so go and get it fixed, if you havnt got any water on it or dropped it then your DS must be broken im sure you can get it fixed, if not get a new one.

Hope this helps!!!!

Nintendo DS Lite will not power up


This can sometimes be caused by the single smt capacitor on the board in the top half that the screen cables plug in to. Try replacing the cap or the entire board.
