Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
Common causes for this problem is either dust or dirt in the card slot or more seriously bent pins. Try blowing in the card slot a few times and put the card back in. Try also looking into the slot to see if any of the pins are bent. If you can see any bent then I am afraid you will need a new Slot A. You can buy these for around £5 on ebay. They are quite tricky to fit so unless you are competent with a soldering iron do not attempt this yourself. For a guide on how to take apart your DS and about the Slot A replacement look online as there are several good sites around. This may sound daunting but I promise you you will be glad you did not pay someone to do it for you, usually they charge a fortune for such a minor repair.
Hope this helps
