    My action replay is not working and it was working perfectly a couple days ago and when I try to put the game code back in to restore the problem I press next and all of the sudden it shows blue and red stripes going down the screen. I don't know the problem and I bought their product twice and it happened to both of them. Please help.

If you are trying to use a DS action replay on a DSi then it will not work. You need a DSi one. If you are using it on a regular DS and it is still not working then I would try to clean the contacts on the cartridge.

Action replay ds

1/ With the console powered off, hold A+B.
2/ Power up the console while still holding A+B.
3/ As soon as the Nintendo screen is displayed, before our screen stating this product is not endorsed by Nintendo, press and hold Start and Select while keeping hold of A+B.
4/ Continue to hold these buttons until the Main Action Replay screen is displayed, then release. Your product is reset, and will accept codes once more.

But all the codes you had before will be gone.
It looks like the day you got it.

I use to have this problem the second time I restarted my Action Replay, so I reset it one more time and it worked. To restart an Action Replay by pressing L+R+A+B+Select+Start while the screen turns white after waiting a while after turning on your Nintendo DS.

Action Replay DS has deleted avery single cheat code it came with

Your Action Replay DS hardware may require resetting if you are experiencing any of the following problems:
* Code Manager PC software is reporting that Action Replay DS does not contain enough free space when it actually contains no codes.
* Code Manager PC software is reporting the console`s battery is low when it’s actually fully charged.
* Multicoloured bars are shown on the screen after you confirm the entry of a game ID when trying to manually enter codes. * You can use the Code Manager PC software without any problems until the Action Replay DS is connected via USB set to the update mode on the console, at which point Windows shows a run time error.
If you are experiencing any of these problems, please follow the steps below to reset the Action Replay DS hardware. Please beware that resetting the Action Replay DS hardware will not restore a default codelist, and any codes which are stored on the Action Replay DS will be erased.
  1. With your console powered off insert the Action Replay DS
  2. Hold down buttons A+B
  3. Turn your console on
  4. With A+B still held down, as soon as you see the Action Replay DS license screen press and hold down buttons START+SELECT so that you now have 4 buttons held down
  5. Hold all 4 buttons down for around 10 seconds until the Action Replay DS loads to it`s home screen
  6. If Action Replay DS doesn’t hold on the license screen for around 10 seconds when you do this, you may need to turn off and try again

That has happened to me. Actually, all the time. There are many things you need right for it to work every time:

  • Is the Action Replay all the way in?
  • Is the game in the action replay straight?
  • Did you charge the DS with the AR in it? (mine works when I do that)
If all of this is right and it still doesn't work...
take the AR out of the DS and the game out of the AR, put it back together and restart the DS.

hope this helps=^.^=
