    Hello,

    My m3 simply broke, today, after 6 months of use. When i turn my DS on it goes to DS OS, and M3 simply dont boot.

    I even tried that ATARI's cartridges cleaning blows and nothing happens.

    There's anyone with this same problem? if yes, can I fix it or may I consider my m3 dead?

    Thks for all.

    Try cleaning the contacts with alcohol and a q-tip

    did you try sticking a piece of paper inside? if you put a piece of paper inside it might force the pins to connect.

    o.o actually mine continuously has that problem, about 3 times a day, i keep taking out the SD card out of the m3 simply then putting it back in for some reason after i do that a couple of times it works o.o. (probably not good for the spring but w/e it works) but yeah hope you get yours working =)

    Mine stopped doing a white screen when I removed the spring mechanism and cleaned up the inside (of the R4 and sd slot) while I was in there. Before that it was a 50/50 chance of white screen on reinsert, and it even occasionally would halt if I just touched the R4 while it was inserted and doing stuff.

    Might want to give it a go with no SD card inserted, see if you can at least get it to come up with the reinsert SD message. Perhaps something metallic snuck inside the SD slot or the case?
