    Try wedging a piece of paper behind the cart in the slot. The DSi seems to have a sort of metal spring that already does this, so it usually doesn't have such a problem.

    From Where???
    getting stuck at the H&S screen is a flash linker contact issue with slot1. at this point it is just detection of what is in the slot. nothing is booting or being accessed yet. so take it in/out/in/out until you get a good seat. check that the ds with issues doesn't have a bent pin in slot1. you can also blow some air in there and clean it out.

    Yeah, try and jiggle it around until you get a good connection.

    Just wedge a folded piece of paper behind the cart, on the side facing outwards. This just helps push the connectors on the other side of the cart into the DS better.

    Though his problem is with the pins not connecting properly.
