Nintendo ds, takes forever for game to start

Everytime we turn on the ds it says no card inserted. it takes about 10 tries to get the game to start. does it just need to be cleaned? another problem, most of the time it does start, it ends up freezing. can this be fixed?

Hey Miss 48

yes the problem can be fixed, but not by you, get a professional to do it, look up a games repair shop explain the problem, shouldnt cost too much, hey maybe they will sort it for free, but there are chances that its dusty and needs cleaning, use cotton bud but be careful dnt want to rub too hard, give it a few blows where game cartridge goes, you never know you might not need to get it repaired

My nintendo DS will not work when i place my ds card inside and the game is not there


Try turning your DS power off then let it cool down for a few minutes. Before that take the game out. When you've let it cool down for a few minutes put the DS game back in and see if it has worked.

When games are inserted into console they will not play


If you are inserting a DS card, be sure there are no foreign articles inside the slot. Blow into the DS card slot to clear any debris. Also be sure you are inserting the card all the way in until it clicks. I've also found that if you're powering on a game, and you bump, grasp or touch the ds card as the DS is powering on, that can cause it to not read games.

Check the actual DS card itself and carefully look at the exposed contacts on the circuit board. Be sure none of them are scratched, damaged or otherwise. A scratch can damage a contact, thus preventing proper data read.

If anything was spilled onto the DS card, be sure it is thoroughly cleaned with a damp cloth (no cleeaning chemicals!) If you immerse the DS card, or pour liquids on it, that may damage it as well.

Same points hold true for inserting a Gameboy Advance game (if you have a DS or a DS Lite. The DSi and DSiXL do not have Gameboy Advance slots.

If you turn on the DS and nothing happens, try a different DS Card. If it only happens with that one particular game (or games) your DS cards are damaged or need cleaning. If all your games are not playing, there is a problem with your DS. Try your games in a friend's DS just to make sure. You'll probably have to send the unit to Nintendo for repair, or take it to an authorized repair center.

When i insert the game card into my ds the ds says


You may have a deffected game. You can take it back to where you bought it, tell them the problem and ask for a new game. if they don't take it back, you can tell nintendo about it and they will most likely either try to fix it or give you a new game.

DS won't recognize inserted card.


Try a nintendo approved DS Card in the system, if you can't get that to take then you know the slot in the DS is bad and the DS needs to be replaced.

If you can get a nintendo approved DS card to work then you know that you need to stay away from the 3rd party cards.

Put game into action replay and it says insert game card help


I had the exact same problem as you, and I solved it. The only way to do it is to keep inserting and taking out the game card, and blowing into the DS card slot and the gold things on the lower back of the game card. After doing this about 3-5 times, the action replay should finally get the message that there is a game card in the slot. Hope this helps!
