Ds Lite Won't Read Games
I recently purchased a broken ds lite off of ebay to attempt repairing it as a little project. It won't read ds or gameboy games, so I assumed it just had some damaged pins. I opened up the ds and to my surprise, all the pins appeared to perfectly intact. I even put gentle pressure on each one and they all appeared well-attached to the motherboard. I then theorized that the pins could possibly be dirty, so after cleaning them off with some q-tips and rubbing alcohol, I assembled the ds and tested it. (Spoiler alert: that still didn't fix my problem, and all that my endeavors produced was a really clean ds lite lmao)
The two slots might need to be replaced, but it seemed like too much of a coincidence that both parts would be faulty.
I'm not sure what else could be the problem, if anyone has any ideas I'm all ears. Thank you!
