Sorry to disappoint you but there is no way of fixing it, you should get a free replacement depending on how long you have had the card, ive had my action replay for over a year now and it works perfectly, the card you have is corrupted trust me try and get a replacement from your manufacturer.

My action replay ds leaves the start screen but then just goes white even before it reaches the main menu.i tried blowing on it it and it still does the same thing

Hello dijanilaplac,

There can be many problems with your Action Replay DS. Try taking the Action Replay out of your Nintendo DS Lite Console, and look at the part those goes into the DS. Make sure nothing is bent, or missing. If something is, it might mean you may have to have it repaired, or replaced. Also keep in mind that sometimes Action Replays can be sensetive, so don't move it around while playing, or it may cause your DS to freeze up.

If you just bought this Action Replay recently, it should have been supplied with a CD to insert into your computer. You should install Action Replay onto your computer. When you have been brought to the main Action Replay Code Manager, find your USB and Action Replay plug in. Plug the small end into the top of the Action Replay cartridge, and the USB into the computer. Now a New Hardware wizard should have popped up on your computer.

When prompt, select, "Install from specific location.", then click next. Then select Search from CD-ROM. Sometimes it may sound different, just select the one that says something about searching from a CD-ROM. After this has completed, reset your Action Replay.

If the problem persists, feel free to contact me, for questions, or replies.

My action replay won't show up on my screen

everyone i know has the same problem, the action replay is VERY sensitive and i cant tell you what's wrong exactly, but youll need to make sure it's clean and nothing is warped (if you tilt your screen all the way back, it will freeze the game most of the time).

Don't return it! Your Action Replay DS is corrupted. To fix it, turn the DS on (with AR in it) while holding A and B. Then, at the white screen, after "Nintendo DS" but before "This product is not licensed or endorsed by Nintendo", hold down Start and Select while still holding A and B. A few seconds will pass and then the title screen will appear. A few seconds after it appears, release all the buttons. The screen will go white, so just restart the device. Now do a Quick Update in Action Replay Code Manager (on the PC) by pressing the Quick Update button in the corner of the window while the AR (still inserted in the DS) is connected via USB. After it's done, viola! A fixed Action Replay.

Action Replay DS

All you need to do is, when you have those blue and red lines, means the codes are corrupted. To fix this, you will have to reset the Action Replay. To do that, you need to do this:

1. Hold down the A and B buttons before turning the console on.
2. Turn the Ds on while still holding the A and B, but when the health and safety screen comes up, hold down Start and Select too, so you now have 4 buttons held down.
3. Keep holding all 4 down until the main screen of the Action Replay appears. You'll have no games, which is no worry now because you can hook it up to the computer and update your AR with all the games again.

Hope this helps!
