Posted on Jan 30, Try cleaning into the Slot-1, blowing inside first to remove dust then try again the non working games. Look inside the Slot-1 for bended pins or check the ejecting lock mechanism for performance taking the game by forcing it out can damage the mechanism. Carefully clean the cartridges contacts and the pins into the slot-1 with qtips or a little cotton covered stick moistened in any contact cleaner solution works better, google for non abrasive options take care not to bend the pins.

Try again the non working games. If noting of previous work you may have a partially damaged or broken slot-1 and that would need more work to be repaired.

It was dropped not even a foot and the Rt side of the game hinge, above the Rt speaker button, broke off. The game ultimately completely disabled the game. We saved up and bought him a new nintendo 3DS just not an xl. It was able to get on the internet but we inserted a game and it will not READ the games. From what I am reading this is a common problem. I believe Nintendo needs to correct this malfunction and send us a new game.

Its not fair to us to keep buying him another 3DS. And devastating g our child once again? March 18 by Heather Adams. June 3 by Albert Einstein.

If you put it on auto, then turn it off and press the card in and out fast about 10 times , then turn it back on, it should work.
