    If anyone knows how to fix this please help. Not so recently ago, I put my TTDS chip into my DS. Now I can't get it out! I pushed on it really hard but it doesn't come out! [​IMG] Thanks for your comments

    Think the springloader dead or just stuck? get a thin-nose caliper and grab it out?

    This happened to someone else a while back (knew it wasn't just deja-vu!). He never said if he managed to get it out, but I remember tracking down a few threads on Google discussing the problem and solutions:

    In a nutshell, there's a catch that holds the cartridge in, and you need to release that catch before it'll let you pull the cart out, which is discussed in more detail in the linked threads. Good luck! [​IMG]

    That happened to me once. Just use some tweezers to pull it out, check for anything stuck in the game slot, and try inserting a different game. (You may need to press the game 2 times to get it to stay in, or possibly take it out; not forever, but just b/c the spring may be in the wrong position)

    Hope this helps
