  • mercuryice Jan 14, 2008

    Is something up with nintendo that all the mic's went faulty in dec 07? I finished playing Zelda with no probs then tried Cooking mama and it just wont work! It's $140 to get a new ds but $75 plus shipping to repair out of warrenty. It's crazy. Of course the ds was bought last Christmas so the warrenty just expired.

    Well, I have a problem with my microphone on the DS Lite. When I go to play with the bubble blower, call my puppies, or blow up a balloon on Nintendogs, the microphone will not respond at all. I might have dislodged the microphone inside, but if I did, what could I possibly do??

    same thing, everything works except mic i have a pearl white ds lite

  • Anonymous Feb 24, 2009

    The plug in mic and speaker set did not fix this problem for me. Another thing is if your DS is out of warranty... basically older than One Year, It will cost you 70 USD to fix it! D'oh!

    I am nine years old and I was play my nintendogs and I couldn't play with my bubble blower. Also I have cooking

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.

The internal mic is routed through the front mic input connector and if this connector gets dirty then it will go open circuit. Use a cotton bud and WD-40 ( or similar contact cleaner) to clean the two pins next to the headphone jack input. The contact cleaner needs to go right to the back of the connector. Use a toothpick to push the contacts up and down a few times to clear the contacts.

My solution is.... to get it replaced. My Guitar Hero DS mic stopped working after I only had it for a week. (Last Thursday til Thursday this week, which was yesterday). I rang up www.ebgames.com.au and they were like "no worries, bring it down and we will replace it yo".

If you don't have this advantage.. then it looks like you would have to send it to Nintendo to play with it or something.

Nintendo DS - Microphone not responding properly
Not all games use the Nintendo DSs built-in microphone. Consult the instruction manual of the game you are playing to be sure the game uses the microphone feature.

Specific games:

  • For help communicating with your dog in Nintendogs, click here for help.
  • Playing Metroid Prime Hunters on the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, and have questions or issues with Voice Chat? If so, please click here.
  • Playing Pokémon Pearl or Pokémon Diamond on the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, and have questions or issues with Voice Chat? If so, please click here.
  • Playing Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir and having issues with the microphone? If so, click here for assistance.

If you are still experiencing problems with the microphone, your system will need to be repaired.Nintendo offers convenient repairs, fast turnaround times and, for all systems repaired, a new one-year manufacturer's warranty. To begin the repair process, we will need to gather some information from you.

I can't get games working on my Nintendo DS.


Nintendogs- your microphone is probably dust-clogged or broken, otherwise, borrow a friends to see if it works there. if not, your dog will never learn his name

My Sims Kingdom- my Advance Wars-Days of Ruin did the same try (very carefully) opening the curved side of the DS card (My Sims) and check for, believe it or not, dust.

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.

Blowing into microphone on Nintendo DS lite


There is no opther way at all. Most probably ur MIC isnt working any more. Thats pretty sad, if its under warranty, nintendo will get it replaced. If not, forget playing that game. sorry.

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.

Nintendogs experience microphone problem


Phillyxx1995

It is not the game that is here the problem. It is the DS Lite.
Your microphone is disabled by a defective connector at the front of your DS Lite.

I explain...

On the front left of youre DS Lite, there is a headset connection. Inside this connector (soldered on the mainboard of the DS Lite) there is a contact that shuts down the microphone on the top screen enclosure if this headset connector is used.
For some kind of reason (and I see a lot of them), this internal switch stay closed when a headset was inserted and removed again Result.....the microphone in the enclosure is always off.
I've even seen this problem without ever using a headset and the front connector.
The only way to solve your problem is to replace this headset connector by Nintendo or a DS Lite repair service
