HELP! I've tried everything! I've reset my game the DSi way, L+R & A+B+X+Y while starting. And it still happens. When I start up the AR DSi, right at the Datel screen the touch screen shows the liecense info for a second and then goes red, and it never goes away. It freezes there. Anybody know how to fix this? And please, I'd like straight answers, not flaming about "playing the game with skill", its annoying. Thanks.

I was playing Pokemon pearl that my cousin gave me, and I tried saving with the Ac still in the ds, and my screen froze. This had happened before, so I took it out, cleaned it, put it back in and got red screen of death! Plz help, cause I don't know where the cord is!!!

Anyone who thinks its because of the number of codes, your wrong. I had literally TWO codes, and the red screen of death. so disapointing.

I'm having the same problem. Does anyone have any idea about what we did to make it this way?
I turned my ds off when it was loading.

This happened to me and all you have to do is reset your action replay dsi but that also means that all the codes that came preinstaled will be deleted. when i first did it i didn't know that so i lost all the codes and games. here is 6 steps to reset your action replay dsi.
1.first you have to have your AR and your AR cord with you if your AR is in your dsi or 3ds or ds lite then unplug it
2.once you have the stuff from step one plug you AR into your computer using the cord
3.once your AR cord is pluged into your computer open your AR code manager if you dont have it copy and paste in your web browser and scroll to the bottom of the page.
4.once you've opened your AR code manager right click on the top left corner and then click about action replay dsi code manager
5. when that screen appears click reset hardware
6.after it resets unplug your AR and then plug it back in again
