Date settings gone

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.

DS Keeps telling me to put the system settings

If you go to the Settings option as you obviously have, try to go into the Start-up options and click on the Arrow leading into a box.... this will take you to manual mode or Auto mode. If you chose Auto mode it will just start up the game as you put the card in. If you want to change it... take the game out, start it up and you will have the option of changing it back to manual mode or changing your settings etc. Make sure you hit confirm with all the options you change.

If it altered the selected language in the game too, there should be a option in the game where you should be able to change the language. In most games at start up there is usually a menu screen where you can select:" new game, options, continue,(it sometimes might vary)" Language settings (if any at all) are usually found in "game options."

Exactly what game is this problem on? I'm assuming that since your daughter changed the language, that she knows how to go back to the DS configuration settings to select the language. If that is the area of information that you did need though, You can post another comment here asking that.

DS not going to the menu but straight to the game. This annoying

When turning your NDS ON press the select button a while and the main menu must appear instead the game.

To disable the Auto Mode go to:
Manual Mode: if you would like the main menu screen to appear or;
Auto Mode: if you would like for the game cartridge to run when you turn on your DS.

Anyway at this time you know how to access the main menu screen in auto mode so if you like the game to load instantly then let the setting in auto mode and access the menu only when needed.

Good Luck...

No Start Up Menu

turn it on without any cartridge inside, probably the menu will appear again.
