What do I do if I'm having microphone issues on the Nintendo DS?

posted on 2014/06/29

General Troubleshooting
  • Position the DS system about 10 to 12 inches from your mouth.
  • Make sure that you are in a quiet environment. Ambient background noise affects the voice recognition system.
  • Try raising your voice slightly if there is no response from the game. Don't yell – yelling may produce distortion and interfere with the voice recognition system.

Microphone Location
  • Nintendo DS – Located directly below the lower left corner of the touch screen, next to the word "MIC."
  • Nintendo DS Lite – Located directly above the touch screen on the hinge, next to the word "MIC."
  • Nintendo DSi – Located directly above the touch screen on the hinge, to the right of the inner camera and next to the word "MIC."
