You may have to open it and clean under the pad, or put the pad back in place under the button.
Here is how to open it:

Under the buttons is a rubber pad. A black puck under the rubber must line up to the contacts on the circuit board.
You need one special too, a tri-wing screwdriver (available on ebay).

Some ds games do not work on my ds but will work on my sisters and there are other games that will work on my ds. Is the problem with the ds or the game


it might be because you have a DSi, and your sister has a DS or DS lite

if so you cannot play some games because DSi are region locked, basically an US DSi can only play US games, a japanese DSi can only play japanese games etc etc,

DS and DS lite are not region locked and can play any game

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.

I hooked it up to update overnight the next morning it wasnt finished so i took out the plug later i tried putting some cheats on my game and it said uknown version and some code on the bottom


try to reset it.
  1. With your console powered off insert the Action Replay DS
  2. Hold down buttons A+B
  3. Turn your console on
  4. With A+B still held down, as soon as you see the Action Replay DS license screen press and hold down buttons START+SELECT so that you now have 4 buttons held down
  5. Hold all 4 buttons down for around 10 seconds until the Action Replay DS loads to it`s home screen
  6. If Action Replay DS doesn’t hold on the license screen for around 10 seconds when you do this, you may need to turn off and try again

Nintendo ds NEED HELP


My DS touch screen is very light. If you turn look at a particular angle you can still see what is shown on the screen, but other than that, the screen looks white. I have already changed the touch pad and that was not the problem. Any assistance would be appreciated.
Thanks
