Nintendo DS Lite setup failure

I enter the nickname, dates, colors, etc. I select the confirm to save, and power cycle, it is stuck in the setup pages. The defaults for dates are 0, and so are the times. Is there a way to reformat the ds lite?

Could be a bad battery. Open the battery cover and take out the battery for a little then put it back in and you can setup stuff again.

How to reset settings of my ds?


what setting do you mean? the ds setting like clock, date, languanges, user information ect?
if that's what you mean, just erase the data and input one character and confirm (user information), the date and clock etc won't be a problem right!?!

Hi, my daughter has a nintendo ds lite that she bought in late July of last year. Today when she turned it on it wanted her to re-enter all start up information, i.e name, date, time, birthday. then it...


This is a well known problem caused by not using the Nintendo DS console for an extended period of time. Inside the actual console is an internal battery, which when left dormant will cease to work. There are two ways to fix this problem:
1) Try to fully charge the Nintendo DS console, then attempt to use it. 2) Contact Nintendo on the following form:

Providing your warranty is still okay, Nintendo will provide you with a new system free of charge - otherwise you may have to pay a replacement fee which will be a fraction of the actual consoles price.

Clean your battery contacts and DS pins with alcohol.
If not working then you have a deffective mainboard and need to take your DS to warranty or repair.

DS Keeps telling me to put the system settings


If you go to the Settings option as you obviously have, try to go into the Start-up options and click on the Arrow leading into a box.... this will take you to manual mode or Auto mode. If you chose Auto mode it will just start up the game as you put the card in. If you want to change it... take the game out, start it up and you will have the option of changing it back to manual mode or changing your settings etc. Make sure you hit confirm with all the options you change.

Ds light


On the bottom of the unit, open the battery compartment and remove the battery for a minute or 5. Then put the battery back.
Close the compartment and turn the DS Lite on. Now it wil ask for Nickname, date etc. Exactly the same as when you bought it

Have fun

    First DS (system you are transferring the ID from)

  1. Turn on any Nintendo WFC-compatible game and access the WFC Setup Utility. (Consult the game manual for the game you are playing for specific information.)
  2. Tap "Options."
  3. Tap "Transfer Nintendo WFC Configuration."
  4. Tap "Ok", then tap "Ok" again.
  5. Second DS (system you are transferring the ID to)

  6. Remove all games from the DS you wish to transfer the settings to, then turn the system on.
  7. On the DS's main menu, select "DS Download Play."
  8. Select "Nintendo WFC Configuration Transfer."
  9. Tap "Yes" when asked if you want to download the software. The word "Downloading..." will appear.
  10. First DS

  11. On the DS with Nintendo WFC configuration, tap "Ok" to confirm that you wish to transfer the configuration.
  12. Second DS (system you are transferring the ID to)

    • If there is an existing configuration on the new DS, tap "Ok" to confirm that you wish to overwrite the existing configuration.
    • Once the transfer begins, it will take about half a minute.

    Both DS Systems

  13. Once the configuration has been transferred, tap "Ok" to save the changes and shut each system off.

All of the Friend Codes you had given or received on the previous Nintendo DS will now work in the Nintendo DS system you transferred the ID to.


I just copied that from nintendo.com's customer service for you... it's better than how I could explain it.
