When i insert in a game in my nintendo ds lite it says there is no game inserted and when i insert a gba game into it it works please help me! thx

Check the SLOT 1 for bent pins. You will need to look inside the slot, preferably with a torch and see if any pins are bent out of shape. If you see any bent pins, use a small screwdriver to gently bend the pin back to where it should be. Check also for any foreign items in the slot which may prevent correct contact.

My daughters ds lite has a few problems. The calibration is out and wont fix when i calibrate it. It wont play ds games but will play gameboy games. Please could you tell me if these problems cn be fixed?

The touch screen may be faulty but can be replaced. The SLOT 1 game slot may have bent pins or broken pins. Bent pins can be easily fixed (with care and patience) but replacing the SLOT 1 or the touch screen is quite difficult. It is probably repairable but only by someone who knows what they are doing.

the pins in the game slot might be bent (shine a light in the slot and use a needle or pin to straighten any bent pins) or the pins might be dirty. slide something thin, wet with rubbing alcohol, over the pins-lightly.

Nintendo ds lite won't read card

had this problem, i looked into where the game goes and one of the little metal teeth was bent, so i took a long toothpick and gently pushed it back over now it works fine. Be careful that you dont break it off though.

Nintendo DS Lite gold teeth bent

I dont like to give you bad news but this is a difficult part to find and replace without some technical knowledge, and even if you get it, i.e. from a parts NDS, and with the technical knowledge, its difficult as this part is surface mounted and have many pins to desolder.

Actually I dont remember how difficult is it to put the pins of SLOT-1 in place by opening the device though you can try that as first option (find some open NDS pictures, the guides are also online everywhere).

You can also use a SLOT-2 (GBA) game cartridge for backups (ROMS) with flash memory as many options are online too but may be dificlt and you may need to do some proccedures as you cant use the SLOT-1 (NDS games).

The other option is to buy a broken NDSL somewhere like ebay making sure the main board works good, as you dont worry about broken hinges, cracked screens, etc. Or last pick, sell it for parts.

Good Luck...
