Re: games wont stay
Depending on how long you have had the console (less than 12 months) see if you can get a replacement if not look for a gaming repair shop, their usual price for a repairing of the slot could come up2 £30 - £40

Check the game slot, under a light have a look inside to see if there are any bent or broken pins, if there are any the game slot will need to be replaced, you can take it back to where you bought and ask them about getting it repaired or contact nintendo direct for repairs.
If everything looks ok give the socket a blow inside and hold the ds with cover facing away from you and press down slightly at the top of the game socket, i know this is not a technical repair but i have done it a number of times and it has'nt failed.
If by DS chip you mean the DS game, and if by card you mean the slot where you put DS games, then I'm thinking that the device that keeps the game inside may have been damaged/broken. How to repair this I do not know, if it is even possible. Unfortunately, according to the DS Lite I have sitting here, the only way I can see to even touch this problem warrants the removal of the game slot itself, or replacing the entire main board. (Don't mind the Italics, I just hit the shortcut key and don't know what key that is).
it may be a technical difficulty in the gba slot try bowing in it or get a q tip and kinda dust it out or blow in the game becuse the game isint making any connections to the ds and with the charger thing if u push in the charger too hard you might mess up the reciving thing inside the ds so it wont get the charge so be very careful when it comes to ds.....if u have any more questions plz let me know
did you try to clean the pins (carfully) this sometimes works for me, their is no one i know of that sells the slot reader, as for replacing it you will need to desolder and resolder the 18 pins plus the 4 that hold the shell down
When you put the game in, after it clicks hold it down and do not let go. turn on your ds and see if it reads it. If it doesn't, check the pins in the slot 1 slot and maybe just put some water on a q-tip and wipe them gently. If it reads when you hold it down maybe just tape it that way or something. Check the game also to see if there are scratches on the gold part. If this all doesn't work then I am out of solutions. Or you could send it to nintendo because if they can't fix it, you get a new DS.
You will simply have to apply more pressure when trying to push it out. There is no other way to remove it. Make sure the outside and inside of the game is clean once you get it out. Dirt, or other gritty substances bind it up. You will also want to blow out the game slot on the DS. Use canned air and keep the can upright.
