DS lite just stop recognizing DS games. Game won't realize that a game is inserted into slot. Thought it was a defective game just not reading properly, but is now happening with all games. The Game Boy games work fine in their slot, just not the DS. I looked for debris in the slot, no issues though.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

The pins on the cartridge slot get oxidation and dirt on them. The game cards also get dirty. Pick one game card and carefully cut little strips of extra-fine sand paper. Use a stylus to rub gently each contact on the game card. They should become shiny gold again. Blow it off with compressed air and insert it into the DS. Do not attempt to clean inside the DS.
the card slot may be dusty, blow gently into it (making sure no spittle gets in) or get a clean cloth and wipe the outside of it. On no account must the slot get wet, or it will probably get damaged and will not work.
Hi. the same thing sometimes happens to me. but i find if i remove the cartridge and blow into it and the slot on the DS then insert the cartridge firmly back into the slot it will work. it seems that even the smallest speck of dust will affect it.
