Can the 3ds game cart reader be soldered in the dsi board?

My dsi stopped reading game carts, so I took a toothpick and lifted the "door" in the game cart reader in order to see the pins and they were bent (like 6 or 7, I also took it apart in order to make sure it was that), so I looked online for replacements, but I only found very expensive ones (I don't live in the us and purchasing on ebay isn't that reliable because of the shipping cost) and the only cheap one I found was a 3ds cart reader that looked almost the same as the dsi cart reader.

Yes you can solder a new one on but you might want to get some practice in first or have it done by a reputable repair store

If you decide to do it I recommend using a small soldering Iron tip with a quality solder ,wick and flux

If you are only using a soldering iron you might want to buy some chip quick as it melt’s very easily which makes it easy to take the old port off

Or you could use a hot air station to take It off ,just don’t use hot air for putting it on unless you get the opposite side of the board it the same area as you could melt the plastics on the connector

As for practice I recommend using some of those fault board and just try and take things off and put them back on

Hopefully this helps

Any questions please ask

I do know how to replace and solder things on a PCB, the question is, "Is the cart reader that I found compatible with the DSi even though it is advertised as a 3ds one?"




I’m sooooo sorry about that

I mis-read the question

From what I know what and what I have read you cannot use the 3DS game reader on the DSI

However here is one that is compatible



@hellomacos No problem and thanks for answering my question, sadly that item can't be sent to where I live, but I'll search for dsi cart readers somewhere else. :l



No problem:-)

Please let me know of there's anything else I can help with:-)
