    Hello all,

    I have a problem with a DS my friend gave me. The DS will not play any slot-1 games, and I have already called nintendo, but would not like to pay a lot of money to fix it. I have uploaded screenshots for everyone to see, and I hope this will help to try to fix this problem.

    Thanks in advance [​IMG] ,

    Psycho,

    I don't know....try cleaning the slot with a q-tip? Just use a dry one don't dip it in alcohol and such. And be careful not to leave any strands behind.

    Is it just me or does it have a broken contact? The 3rd pin from the left seems to be missing.

    It could be that. Alternatively, it could also be light obscuring it or a camera angle making it look invisible.

    Well, i just looked at the slot myself, and i think bowser may be right, I can't find that pin. Does anyone know a place where i might be able to buy some?

    If its really broken you will need to replace the whole slot with a new one which is a hard process.
    Try cleaning it again & if it doesn't work then you need to send it to get fixed or buy a new slot like this http://www.dealextreme.com/p/repair-parts-...-nds-lite-26807 and fix it yourself.
