You just make noise in or near it. The mic should be between the top and touch screens. There's no on or off switch for the mic.

Where is the microphone located?


Hello bdbsmom. The location of the microphone for the Nintendo DS is located at the hinge between the middle of the two screens. Are you having a problem with the microphone or were you just curious?

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.

Regards,

Not all games use the Nintendo DSs built-in microphone. Consult the instruction manual of the game you are playing to be sure the game uses the microphone feature.

My Nintendo DS microphone broke for no reason and my sister's also broke for no reason...What should I do?


Go thru these steps to see if its a configuration issue with the DS:

Restart your Nintendo DS. Sometimes a quick restart will fix your microphone problem. Do this on both systems. All the steps that I mention, do them on both systems.

Check whether your microphone volume is up. Access this feature through the DS menu. If the microphone’s volume is down, it will not receive any sound.

Make sure the volume on your Nintendo DS is up. If your speakers are off, you won't hear whether your microphone works.

If these steps do not correct the problem, then systems will need to be serviced cause the main board would be bad at that point.

Ds lite microphone not working. help!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hi, The Ds microphone is relatively straight forward to replace and can be bought on eBay etc if you wished to fix it yourself. Alternatively if you contact a local DS retailer they will be able to put you in contact with nintendo who will fix it for a fee.

I don't know of anyway to bypass the activities in any games reliant on the microphone.

Microphone hissing sound


That sounds alot like the microphone booster in control panel. Depending on what version of windows your are using, you can just open the sound control from the taskbar and go to the advanced settings and uncheck the setting "microphone booster". Adjust microhpone volume accordingly.
