System and Game Problems

 


 

  • Liquid spilled in system:
    If liquid of any kind has been spilled in the Nintendo DS system, remove the battery cover and battery and allow the system to dry. If a significant amount of liquid touched the battery, it must be replaced. Please contact your local retailers for battery replacements.

  • Game Card will not eject:
    Press down on the top of the Game Card. It should spring up slightly, giving you enough of a grip to remove the card. If after doing this the Game Card still does not eject, we recommend you have your system repaired. Click here for repair options in Latin America.
