Question about Nintendo DS Lite - Onyx

DS Won't recognize games

My DS will only recognize a game cartridge if I hold in down all the way in the slot. By all the way I mean all the way because you know how hwne you push it in, the cartridge pops up a little into place. Well If I hold it down as far as it could go without letting it pop into playable position, it will play. Seems like the locking mechanism might be loose or the pins are bent backwards away from the top. Any ideas on how to fix it?

I am don't know how to install a chip. i don't have the instruction booklet. Help


If you need to insert a game made for the DS you'll find the slot by holding the unit so that both screens face your, then looking at the opposite side, on the thin edge, or the part that has the buttons.
If you need to insert a game made for the Gameboy Advance you'll find the slot facing you if you hold it with both screens facing you. A removable cover is in place to protect the system when this slot is not in use.
DS, and DS Lite devices have both slots. The newer DSi systems and the 3DS do not have an options to work with the Gamebody Advance cartridges.wswift_4.jpg

My Nintendo DS does not work right. It says there


Have a look down the game slot for any bent or broken pins if not the slot 1 game socket is not holding the game cartridge tight enough to the pins to make a good connection. there is a quick fix for this that has worked for me, only if you are confident enough to open up the ds, by pressing down hard enough to make a slight dent in metal peice on the logic board, press down the bottom corners and the middle with a small screw driver and that should cure the problem. good luck <tell me how it goes>

Nintendo DS Lite - Problem w/ Console not Recognizing Game Cartridge


The problem is that over time the console pins that contact the game catridge gold contacts bend and no longer contact the catridge. DSi has solved this problem by adding a spring that will push the catridge firmly against the pins. So Nintendo must have recognized the problem (a serious design flaw worthy of a class law suit since 4 DS lite at home had a similar problem. I fix the problem in one of the old "broken" consoles by adding a "bumper" made of folded paper on the catridge, opposite to the contacts. This rudimentary added pressure on the pins fixes the game freezing and all the games work now. I feel chated by Nintendo after spending over $600 to replace broken consoles. They usually break after about a year.

DS Card Not Recognized


the card slot may be dusty, blow gently into it (making sure no spittle gets in) or get a clean cloth and wipe the outside of it. On no account must the slot get wet, or it will probably get damaged and will not work.
