The cartridge holders are now available from online retailers but require a skilled electronics technician to be fitted as the connections are very small and require soldering.

Oh no! You have to immediately take it to a authorized service center and have them fix it. They have special tools. Please DON'T use a screwdriver!

Good luck and take care,

It says there is no game inserted when there is


This could be as simple as a bit of crud or corrosion on the little pins in the slot. Could be as bad as a bent pin.
Which ever it is don't start poking things in the slot, the pins are incredibly fragile. First clean your games off to make sure its not the game at fault. Then get a very bright light and look in the slot to see if there are any bent pins, if all looks ok then you could risk some very gentle cleaning of the pins. Remember those pins will bend just for the fun of it.
If all that fails and you are good with a soldering iron change the slot, its fiddly and you need a very small tip iron, about 0.5mm or less. Oh and patience but you only need to take the bottom case of to get to it. You will need a tri-wing screwdriver too.

SCI Phone i9++


This things happens to me the.. Check the sim if inserted correctly. If you use sim 2 card slot (bottom slot), the metal connector of sim should face up. When you make a call, be sure you press the sim2 call(P2).

If you use the sim 1 card slot (top slot), insert the sim in facedown manner. When you make a call, be sure you press the correct button for sim 1 (P1)

When ever i put my Nintendo DS game into my DS it says NO game


your cartridge SLOT 1 connector is bad!, those 2 things sticking out are called "pins" where the game card makes contact with the D, u need to get it replaced, u could buy it on Ebay, search for "SLOT 1 ds"
it's around $10-15
if u know how to fix electronics, .... u will need to solder it!... if u have warranty, send to Nintendo, or a repair shop!

Just try pushing the game card farther into the slot because sometimes the DS doesn''t pick it up because it's not all the way in. That's actually the only way to help it, but if not, maybe something is wrong with your DS or there's something stuck in the slot.

Gamecube game stuck in wii


Well i have expirienced the same thing. what you have to do is put the console face down so that the game slot is facing the floor then press the eject button but if that doesnt work you have to heat up the system by leaving it on for about 3 hours then tilt it and press the button and that should get the disc out for you.
