Re: Nintendo DS Lite gold teeth bent
I dont like to give you bad news but this is a difficult part to find and replace without some technical knowledge, and even if you get it, i.e. from a parts NDS, and with the technical knowledge, its difficult as this part is surface mounted and have many pins to desolder.
Actually I dont remember how difficult is it to put the pins of SLOT-1 in place by opening the device though you can try that as first option (find some open NDS pictures, the guides are also online everywhere).
You can also use a SLOT-2 (GBA) game cartridge for backups (ROMS) with flash memory as many options are online too but may be dificlt and you may need to do some proccedures as you cant use the SLOT-1 (NDS games).
The other option is to buy a broken NDSL somewhere like ebay making sure the main board works good, as you dont worry about broken hinges, cracked screens, etc. Or last pick, sell it for parts.

there are little gold contacts inside the system that touch the contacts on the cartridge to read it. after time, these contacts get bent out of shape, and the console refuses to read anymore. i believe nintendo actually faced a class action lawsuit for this problem, so if you call them, they should be more than happy to replace it.
I can give you some answers but might not work. See if the slot where the Ds game suppose to go needs to be cleaned.Take a pice of cotton from the cutip and put it on your stlyer(DS stick).Clean inside of it.Stiil dose not work and have a warranty go get the ds repaired.DO NOT PUT LIQUID IN THE DS SLOT(WILL NEVER WORK AGAIN TILL REPAIRED).
the pins in the game slot might be bent (shine a light in the slot and use a needle or pin to straighten any bent pins) or the pins might be dirty. slide something thin, wet with rubbing alcohol, over the pins-lightly.
had this problem, i looked into where the game goes and one of the little metal teeth was bent, so i took a long toothpick and gently pushed it back over now it works fine. Be careful that you dont break it off though.
