I would say you to send it to repair but that cost money and you have nothing to loose actually so first option is to try it yourself. You need a straight long tweezers like the second from top in the picture.

And a flashlight to iluminate the internal slot1 where the pins are. Then check which ones are bent and try to repair them carefully with the tweezer being more careful not to broke any.

In case you find any broken pin then you have to send it to repair at nintendo or to another videogame repair shop as it need desolder the whole broken slot1 and replace it with a good one no matter if new or used as long as it is good.

Good Luck...

    Last time I had bent pins I must desolder the bent pins and get them out of the slot from behind, then repair and rectify the bad ones without damaging more, and put them again in the slot taking care the pins get right in place because the front part of the pin, where it get bent upside to make contact with the cartridge, must fit in a hole and still get hight enough to make good contact...
    Not an easy work to do though I saved myself to desolder the whole slot and put a new good one because no pin was broken, just bent.

My needles are catching under the plate and snapping.

hi Anita: Sounds like you've somehow knocked it out of time. It happens. Take it in and have it cleaned, lubed and retimed.

My son has a nintendo ds. he wants to know if he can connect it to the internet using our desktop computer

hi name is rui.

if you have a nintendo ds im sorry to say it cant connect to the internet unless you have a special attachment that lets you connect to the net by a wi-fi its called nintendo wi-fi USB adaptor this willhelp you connect to the net. By the way does your son have nintendo DS/DS lite or nintendo DSi cause their are different ways to connect it to the net DSi can connect to the net easily and it doesn't need an adaptor.

pls rate my comment.

I was trying to set my phone to require a password minutes ago- now it wants a PUK code. Is there a default number to use? Please help me solve this issue. Thanks, Anita Rudolph

Hi Anita

Sorry to tell you that there is no default number to use for PUK

You will need to contact your service provider and tell them your handset is asking for a PUK code.

They will then ask for your IMEI number. (Under the battery or can be seen on your handsets screen by typing in *#06# or in the About Phone menu in the settings menu)

They will then give you your own PUK code ONLY for YOUR handset.

I found the mini-reference book to my GE ProSeries 2-9436/2-9438 under the number log on my phone. I scanned the pages into a PDF file. I'll be happy to send you a copy of the PDF file.

Nintendo ds lite won't read card

had this problem, i looked into where the game goes and one of the little metal teeth was bent, so i took a long toothpick and gently pushed it back over now it works fine. Be careful that you dont break it off though.

DS Cartridge slot, broken pins

no. unless you know how to disassemble it and know how to do some soldering.

if you can think you can do it.
open it, check for wires with same diameter of original ones and remake the wiring.
not impossible, but a hard task to do.
