You most likely need to plow on the game pak and the game slot to get any dust out of it.

When i put in a game it says insert game cart

Well, I used to have the nintendo 64 and it would do the samething. Even my nintendo ds does it! But I think it is a common misread of the software. I've fixed my problems by:
1. Taking out game pak, and blow into game pak slot.
2. Try putting the game pak back into the slot.
3. Or blow onto the gamepak gentally, for it might just be dust build-up.

These may not work, but hopefully they will. They've worked for me before. For my ds I had mariokart in the slot and it didn't read the software but I took out the game pak and placed it back into the slot and it worked.

My ds lite does not detect games

You have a defective slot1 (pins broken for example).
Only solution is the replacement of slot1. You need solder skils for that.

DS Lite won't detect ds cards most of the time.

Make sure your game card are clean. Kids will get all kinds of the stuff in there from lint to food. A blast of can air helps and you can also clean the cards with q-tip and alcohol(just a little bit not real wet)Damp! Then let dry! That help stop the build up of crud on the cards.

Game not working

This is a common problem on the DS Lite. It needs to be fixed and I know for sure you can't fix it because it needs to be taken apart. Trust me, working on the DS Lite is very tricky, otherwise I would have told you what to replace and how.

Game Pak not detected

Have you checked to see if any of the contacts in the actual console seem to be faulty?

If the problem is just with DS games, have a check by inserting a GBA game into the other side and see if it recognises it. That should tell you where the problem is. If there's a small bit of dust covering one of the contacts in the console, just blow into it a little and see if it comes free.
