It's time to speak out for your right to repair
No, nothing is wrong with your Nintendo DS. If you DS is quite old several years old , the reader inside the DS that reads the chips gets worn out. I've experienced this a few times with chips that I've put into my DS and I turn it on and it says No game card in slot.
What I've done to remedy the problem is to turn off the DS, take the game chip out and just put it back in again. When I turn it back on, it usually works again. If that does not work for you, try it a couple of more times, and if it still doesn't work for you, send in your DS to Nintendo to get it fixed because your game chip reader is probably too worn out to work properly anymore. They will fix it for you and send it back. Just make sure that it is still under warranty if you do not want to pay money to get it fixed.
Another problem it could be is that the information stored on the game card is corrupt, or the information that needs to be read has been worn out from being played too much. If that is the case, send the game in to Nintendo and they should replace it for you free of charge under the warranty of the game defect in the merchendise. Wow, my DS sometimes does the same thing. Ushaly its dust traped in the ds card reader. If you try blowing it out, then it will work. I haven't turn it on for like 10 years!
I am so happy now, I thought it was broken! March 20 by Karen Chan. May 18 by anthony. July 5 by rick. July 19 by Becca Parrish. The games haven't worked in 3 years, and I refused to throw it out. I just tried to push the game up and down about times, and it actually works now. Thank you so much! Show 10 more comments. Look into the card reader slot. Do not move it side to side, you can bend the pins. Try gently scraping across each contact on the game card with a knife blade, to clean off the contacts.
If you carry the games around loose as I sometimes do the contacts can get dirty, and one or more may fail to make contact. This could be a nubeeee comment. Inserted game and it didn't see the card. As we all do, turned to Google and found this thread. So cleaned contacts etc, etc. Still not seeing the cards. However, insert a card and then turn on and it sees and plays them fine.
The DS Lite is unable to detect a game when the unit is on and a game is inserted. If you want to change games, you'll need to turn the system off, change the game and turn it back on to have the DS Lite recognize the game.
It goes straight to the screen of pictochat and ds download play. You've probably got dirty contacts. My Nintendo Ds lite Was not reading any game This is the solution I went to the DS turned it off and then I Just started to push the game in and out of slot 1 frequently about 20 to 30 times and then I turned on the screens turned white and it worked Oh I almost forgot you also have to put it in auto mode and wala therte you have it a working Nintendo Ds but the only down side is that you have to do this for every game you play but its worth at least it works though.

Posted on Aug 03, DS Lite won't recognize DS cartridge. Try blowing into the cartridge, if it doesn't work, take it to get repaired.
Posted on Oct 02, Unable to read DS micro SD card games. Have you installed Moonshell onto the micro-SD card? It has to be there to see the games. If you have Moonshell installed, you should be able to navigate to where you stored your files. Your adapter should have come with a CD with Moonshell on it or you can download a newer version on the internet. Posted on Apr 01, Well, I had the same problem than these guys: I looked into the slot and, like "solution 2" I noticed a broken pin.
I found a forum where some tech guy explained that not all the games use the same pins, that would explain why some of them still work. With the first alternative you need to have good soldering skills to remove the old and install the new slot. With the second, depending what is the issue with the broken unit, most of the time is a broken screen or broken case Posted on Nov 20, Hi there, this is a problem to do with the card reader slot, The pins within them become worn or bent and do not make a good contact with the game cartridge any more.
If you have good soldering skills you can do it but I would advise googling for a guide that shows you how to do it. You can follow my tip for actually taking apart the DS. If you have a friend who is good at soldering I am sure they would be able to do it for you.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa. Posted on Sep 26, Click "Add" to insert your video. Apr 04, Nintendo DS Lite. Jun 27, Nintendo DS Lite. Jun 13, Nintendo DS Lite.
