Hi my son's DS works fine eg it powers up Ok, but when he inserts a game, it states that no DS card is inserted and he can't play games, everything else is fine. Do you have any ideas what may be wrong?...

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

DS won't read game

make sure that the carteidge is clean, and the cavity inside the DS is clean as can do this by putting isopropyl alcohol on a qtip...make sure you let it dry before powering on your DS again.

Switching ds game slot

I could not find anyone that sold these connectors anywhere. I ended up buying a DS or DS lite motherboard on eBay for cheap. I was able to replace the game slot connector.

Pay attention when you dissassemble your console. Especially the whay the rear buttons and the pins fit. Also, be careful when you pull the 2 housings apart. I accidentally damaged my power button switch and had to replace that as well. Other than that and the soldering it was very easy to do.

I hope this helps

A freezing nintendo lite!

The DS Card Slot may be loose. If so, try not to touch the game card while playing.

Or, there may be a piece of dust or lint in the card slot. If you can see the lint, pick it out with clean tweezers. If you cannot see it, ask a mechanic to open the Ds and pick the dust out.

Nintendo DS message... "Unable to load data. Turn the power off and resinsert the Game Card."

Well maybe when you turn it on, it might be on manual mode. To switch it to auto mode, Press options then press the wrench and then find auto or manual mode and then, switch it to auto mode. Save the options and then it should play the game. If it doesn't work, blow into the DS game and then the DS game slot.
