The speakers are wired from the ribbon cable that also provides the top screen illumination. That cable gets plenty of abuse by opening & closing the DS. Could be a break/tear in that ribbon cable. Does either speaker work? both are bad? If neither work, it's a rather involved process to fix yourself (soldering, etc). You can mail it away for service. Call Nintendo to get a quote.

Problem with my headphones. If they are completely in the ds the sound is different from what it should be. Some background sounds disappear for example. If they are half in and half out ir works right. I...


Your DS has probably suffered from slight water damage. You might want to buy a new one, seek to fulfill the warranty from Nintendo or the store you bought it from, if they offered a warranty.

My nintendo ds lite as no sound but it works fine with head phones in can you help me please


It works well with the headphones?
Well.. That's odd.
Check the left side of your DS volume.
there's a toggle button that says
- VOL +
======
toggle it rightly,as the volume will get higher. Maybe your headphones can adjust the volume. So either contact www.nintendo.com or call Nintendo 1-800-255-3700. Or if you like your DS with headphones,keep it that way.

Nintendo DS Sound Not Working


You might have a wire of some sort out of place as you suggested. I would not try to take of any part of the DS, because if you hit something wrong, or can't get it back together, them you may have to get a new DS. Did your daughter spill something on her DS, or drop it?

If you don't know what happened to the DS, then it may be the companies problem. if your daughter recently got the DS, then you can return it to the store, or send a direct complaint to the company. Even if she got it a long time ago, if it suddenly starts not working at full efficiancy, send it back to nintendo. If you still have the repicet, then send back to the store and tell them what happened.


Hope it helps~

Stylus tip stuck in headphone jack(no sound!)


Yes, here is a guide to dismantle an original Nintendo DS:

How to dismantle a Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video in youtube:

"Disassembling Nintendo DS Lite"

And after opening it you may need to replace or try to repair the audio plug. In case you cant, then you must take it out (desoldering it with the stuck stylus tip and the mute switch, which is embeded in the headphone jack) and you can have your audio back.
As the audio switch and the jack only work to mute the speakers audio usually when you plug a headphone then you can lack of it almost all times.
