Switching ds game slot

How did you switch the game slot on your ds? If I can buy one I would like to switch my son's game slot because it won't acknowledge ds games and looks like a pin is missing.

Thanks

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

how long have you had the console for? if you havnt had it long (less than 12 months) you can get a free replacement or free repair where you got it from, one or two of the teeth where you insert your game might be damaged, see if you can get it sent back, if not local gaming repair shop, works out cheaper to get it fixed than buy a new one, for repairs usually £30-£35 new DS £99 or more, i hope you can get it sorted

DS recognises game but won't play


check the connectors inside cartridge slot inside ds, verify if they are all aligned ( | | | | | ).

if any contact is bend, you must align it, also check for dirt or rust inside slot.

sometimes you will need to clean contacts inside. you must buy a cleaning kit to do it.

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.
