    The DSi system freezes with other games too.

    We believe that the problem is with the game system, because it freezes with other game cards.

Welcome to FixYa!

Here's a quick checklist:

  • Make sure you are using only licensed accessories. Unlicensed products and accessories do not undergo Nintendo's testing and evaluation process. They may not work at all with their game systems, and they may have compatibility problems with certain games or accessories.
  • Check for visible contamination or foreign material on the connector pins of your Game Cards or Game Paks. If you see contamination or foreign material on a Game Card, remove it if you can.
  • If possible, try the Game Card in any other Nintendo DS system (including Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite systems).

  • If the game still does not work in another system, it is likely a problem with the Game Card. You will need to replace the Game Card.
I hope that this will help.
Keep me posted and thank you for using FixYa!

    Even though it freezes in other games too, there is still a chance that the game cards are defective (all of them) not unless you try it in another DSi System.

    If the game cards run smoothly in another DSi System, my professional advice is that - have your DSI unit replaced. It is a technical problem that requires servicing the unit to replace some parts.
    Follow this procedure on how to replace/service the unit

    I hope that this would be helpful.
    Keep me posted.

When I play my DSI in the middle of a game it freezes and I can't turn it off. The screen is just the picture of the game I was playing. When this happens I have to wait overnight for the battery to run...

Chances are you will have to buy a new one. Contact Nintendo and find out if they will repair or replace it even though chances are the warranty is up.

Reset the unit, if it freezes in the same place all the time, and no other games freeze. Then you have a defective game and return it if you can
