The pins on the cartridge slot get oxidation and dirt on them. The game cards also get dirty. Pick one game card and carefully cut little strips of extra-fine sand paper. Use a stylus to rub gently each contact on the game card. They should become shiny gold again. Blow it off with compressed air and insert it into the DS. Do not attempt to clean inside the DS.

    my kids DS lite wouldn't recognize a DS game that was inserted (any DS game). So I grab a pencil eraser cut a small flat edge off and poked a safety pin bent straight through the eraser bit and gently rubbed the contacts inside the DS making sure the metal did not touch the contacts. Blew out any dust or possible eraser bits and it worked!! Games started to work again. I would suggest bring very care cause you could possibly get the eraser caught inside the compartment. That's the only downside. Mine was small enough to not get caught and I was not forcefull at all(very gentle). A solution that saved me money. :)

How to i get to play two players on the Nintendo ds lite


You can play multiplayer games with a Nintendo DS Lite even if you don’t possess a copy of the game. If one of your friends has a multiplayer game card, they can use their Nintendo DS Lite as a host for the game session and you can join the multiplayer game.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Things You'll Need:
  • Nintendo DS Lite
    Using One Card to Host the Game
  1. Step 1 Look on the game’s packaging for the "Multiplayer" icon. If the game requires only one player to have a copy of the game, the icon will show two DS Lites: a DS Lite with a black screen transmitting waves to a DS Lite with a white screen. Below the two DS Lites is a range of numbers which indicates how many players the game can support.
  2. Step 2 Put the game card in the Nintendo DS Lite that is acting as the host for the multiplayer game session and start it up.
  3. Step 3 Have the other players turn on their systems. They will use the main menu screen to access the "DS Download Play" icon. They need to tap the icon to begin downloading the game information from the host DS Lite.
  4. Step 4 Begin playing when all of the systems have finished downloading the game information from the host.
  5. Multiple Cards for Multiple Players
  6. Step 1 Look at the "Multiplayer" icon. If every player in the game session needs a copy of the game in order to play, the icon will show two DS Lites, both with black screens, transmitting waves toward each other. A range of numbers is under this graphic and indicates how many people can play at one time.
  7. Step 2 Read the game's instruction manual on how to set up the game session. The steps required vary by company and sometimes by title within the same company.

Nintendo DS Lite Turns on sometimes, but not every time


It may be a bad DS or if you have a game in before the DS fully loads the game's connection is stopped somehow.

Nintendo Ds Lite Top Screen Problem


It's likely one of three things. Either your ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the board has come loose from it's connector, it has broken, or the LCD has gone out. These are the most common. Depending on which it is will depend on the steps you'll need to take to replace it. However if you got it for Christmas and it was new it is under warrenty and you can contact Nintendo for a free replacement DS.

My Nintendo microphone


My Nintendo ds lite also would not respond to voices. I have brain age 2 and Zelda. In the Zelda options there is a mic test. This will show a graph bar that measures your voice. Well the mic was not working at all for either game. I simply took out the battery and held the power slide for a couple seconds. Amazingly the mic works now for both games. I do not know if moving the power slide is significant, but on computers to de-static them you remove all power sources(battery and ac adapter) and hold the power button for 10 seconds.
