    This is a continuation of my Flash carts not working but games do thread. I am assume the problem I am having is that one of the pins/golden teeth is bent and not forming a connetion with my R4 or Acekard but works fine on normal games because they have the pin guides or whatever they are called. Now I am wonder what would be the best course of action for fixing/bending the pin back into place. I'm hesitant about just digging around inside incase I bend another pin or break one. If anyone has some advice it would be greatly appreciated [​IMG]

    Either you could try to get into the Slot with Something (like a screwdriver) and bend it back, or you could open up your DS and solder in a new Slot. I don't think there will be another way.

    This is a late reply, but I felt I would write what happened in case someone else does a search on a similar topic.

    The pin was bent down slightly and to the side. I use a pair of needlenose teezers and used one end to lift the pin up a few time to get it into place. After I did that I tried my Acekard 2i and it worked perfectly. So if something similar happens for you I would suggest trying to use something long and thin like a long needle or something similar to try lift/adjust the pin before you resort to full out DS surgery.


    P.S. Thanks for the advice Daku93 [​IMG]
