While the unit is OFF, push down and hold the START button then turn ON the NDS. You can try the same with the SELECT or both buttons down.That must grant you access to the DS main menu.

By default the DS load the game cartridge when only one slot is used and let you choose when two slots are used. So if both slots are empty the menu must appear though your case would be very rare.

Good Luck...

MASTERKEY FOR NITENDO DS

Try this my friend :

Go to parental controls in system settings. When it asks 'Change Parental Controls settings?' tap yes. When it brings up a numeric keypad, tap the center button, "I Forgot". Next, tap "I Forgot" again. Now you will be shown a screen with a number at the bottom (the 'inquiry number'). Go to wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp on your computer and enter this number in the field marked confirmation number. Set the current date in your timezone and click get reset code.


It does work for the Ds! You just have to choose the correct time zone after you enter the code!

The master key is different for every DS system. Call Nintendo and get to the DS helper. Then you tell them your inquiry number and they will tell you the master key. You must provide proof of ID, your inquiry number on the DS and your DS serial number.


1. Click "I forgot" twice.
2. Copy the inquiry code onto the bar required on the site provided.
3. Select your date.
4. Get your master key pass.
Go to settings and flip through the options till you see ''Parental Controls''
To know the master key for the Nintendo DS (presumably because you had forgotten your parental control key) call the number 1-800-255-3700 and follow the menus on the phone until you can talk to customer service about Nintendo ds.

I hope his helps otherwise contact Nintendo Directly for support, The telephone number's for all Nintendo Offices worldwide are in the user's manual if not you can Google them.

Hello I have a upgrade R4 but i cannot get on to the menu.As i get it on with the cartridge,it says - System date error! Please check NDS system date.I keep on checking,but nothing seems to work.

Go into your DS time and date settings and put the date back a few weeks. This will solve the problem temporarily until a new kernel update is brought out for the R4 card.

Hope this helps

My nds is stuck in the same time, help please

I would first try to reset the ds to factory settings.
Reset Factory Settings for Nintendo DS 1. Use a small screwdriver to unscrew the back cover.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Wait a few seconds.
4. Replace battery.
5. Turn on DS.
6a. If you have to re-enter your nick-name/time and date etc, it has worked! Go to 7.
6b. If not, remove the battery again and wait longer.
7. Replace cover and screw back in place.

I've heard of this happening before but usually intentionally done in order to manipulate time in games that make use of real world time change.

Is it a ds or a ds lite?

Turn on the unit with no cartidges. Press the screen to acknowledge the warning message.
On the next screen, press the tiny ds icon at the center bottom of the lower screen. This enters the setup. Fromhere you can press the clock calender icon (blue one) to set the time. Youcan also change other settingswith the other icons.

Animal Crossing game date has changed to a new date in the future with all previous game details changed.

It is most likely a fault in the circuit board or a software virus caused in manufacture.
