    I bought my ds second hand. The first time the blow was needed I thought it was a problem with the game but I've tried the blow on three games and it still doesn't work. The games are Alex Rider Stormbreaker, Indiana Jones and New Super Mario Bros

    I got my light pink Nintendo DS lite about 1 year and a 1/2 ago, and when i got it, my microphone worked for about 6-8 months, and i've tried using it on EVERY GAME i need it for including: Cooking Mama 2: Dinner With Friends, and Club Penguin Elite Penguin Force. When I looked for solutions at www.support.nintendo.com , it could cost $75-$85 to just repair the mic! HELP!!!!

    I have a similar problem, it worked at the start. I never used it much either and now I can't blow up balloons in Mario Kart which is essential for multiplayer battle mode. What a pain!

You can change the microphone yourself, but you will need to be a little technical. If you google 'ds microphone replace', or something similar, you'll get the shops where you can get them and a couple of manuals.

Good luck!

Where is the microphone located?


Hello bdbsmom. The location of the microphone for the Nintendo DS is located at the hinge between the middle of the two screens. Are you having a problem with the microphone or were you just curious?

When i need to blow into the ds microphone to dry off littest pet shop, nothing happens


It may be possable that the microphone is broken. Did you try cleaning it off? Did you try blowing on it a lot so the dust inside the ds(i) comes off (out)? If none of these work, Just send in you're ds to nintendo, They can fix it. Don't buy a new ds, calling nintendo is cheaper.

I hope this helps!

My Nintendo DS microphone broke for no reason and my sister's also broke for no reason...What should I do?


Go thru these steps to see if its a configuration issue with the DS:

Restart your Nintendo DS. Sometimes a quick restart will fix your microphone problem. Do this on both systems. All the steps that I mention, do them on both systems.

Check whether your microphone volume is up. Access this feature through the DS menu. If the microphone’s volume is down, it will not receive any sound.

Make sure the volume on your Nintendo DS is up. If your speakers are off, you won't hear whether your microphone works.

If these steps do not correct the problem, then systems will need to be serviced cause the main board would be bad at that point.

Ds lite microphone not working. help!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hi, The Ds microphone is relatively straight forward to replace and can be bought on eBay etc if you wished to fix it yourself. Alternatively if you contact a local DS retailer they will be able to put you in contact with nintendo who will fix it for a fee.

I don't know of anyway to bypass the activities in any games reliant on the microphone.

The Microphone on DS Lite won't respond.


It sounds like you either need to repair the microphone or you could buy a headset with microphone and see if that works as it plugs directly into the main board.

HTH

Microphone not working


The microphone level can only be adjusted in certain games. Have you tried using the mic in any other games? Most likely, the mic is simply defective; I have heard of more than one case of manufacturing defects with Nintendo DS microphones. How long have you had the system? If it is still under warranty, Nintendo should fix the system for free.

My Nintendo microphone


My Nintendo ds lite also would not respond to voices. I have brain age 2 and Zelda. In the Zelda options there is a mic test. This will show a graph bar that measures your voice. Well the mic was not working at all for either game. I simply took out the battery and held the power slide for a couple seconds. Amazingly the mic works now for both games. I do not know if moving the power slide is significant, but on computers to de-static them you remove all power sources(battery and ac adapter) and hold the power button for 10 seconds.
