    Here's the deal- the other day I turned my DS Lite on and the startup chime sound played in an unusual high pitch. This happened with and without headphones, with or without a game on. It happened several times and I could find no obvious hardware reason for this. All other sound effects played as they should so it was not a speaker or sound processing issue. Now though, it's suddenly gone back to playing the proper chime. Anyone have a clue as to what may have been going on?

    This has happened to me before. I left it alone and let it charge since it was running low on power and it returned to normal. Anyone know the real cause of this?

    That's the "Birthday" chime. It happened when it was my brothers birthday. We thought it was broken [​IMG]
    It works off the date you put as your birthday.

    That makes sense then. My birthday was last week, I turned on the DS as the electricity went out for a few hours.
