Charging the Battery 


Awarning 


Do not use the Nintendo DSi AC Adapter during a lightning storm. 
There may be a risk of electric shock from lightning. 


• Be sure to charge the battery before using it for the first time or when it has 
not been used in the last 6 months. 


Battery recharge time is approximately 3 hours, although this will vary depending on the remaining charge 
when you begin to recharge the battery. You can play games while the battery is charging, but this will 
increase the recharge time. 

When fully charged, the battery will last from 13-17 hours on the lowest screen brightness setting, 
depending on the type of game activity. See page 15 for information on adjusting the screen brightness. On 
the brightest setting, the battery life is 4-5 hours. See the table below. 




Using the wireless communications 
or camera features may reduce the 
battery time to less than the figures 
shown to the right. 

NOTE: The default system setting is 
configured to the "High" setting. 

- 0 - Highest 

Approx. 4-5 hours 

-jO>- High 

Approx. 6-8 hours 

—\ 

■ 0 : Medium 

Approx. 9-11 hours 

■0 Low 

Approx. 11-14 hours 

O Lowest 

Approx. 13-17 hours 




The battery can be recharged approximately 500 times, but performance may decrease after repeated 
recharges, depending on usage conditions such as temperature. Optimal charging temperature is between 
41° and 95° Fahrenheit (5-35° Celsius). Battery life may also decrease over time. After 500 recharges, 
battery life may be only 70% of the battery life when new. 


■ Charging the battery 

IMPORTANT: The Nintendo DSi AC Adapter, Model No. WAP-002(USA), is for use only with the 
Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL portable video game systems. It is not compatible with 
any other Nintendo system. Do not use the AC Adapter with voltage transformers, dimmer 
switches, or any other equipment. It is only for use in a standard 120-volt AC wall outlet. 


1. Insert the DC plug from the AC Adapter into the system's AC 
Adapter connector on the back of the Nintendo DSi XL. Be sure 
to insert it straight into the connector. 


IMPORTANT: Be sure the DC Connector Plug is 
facing in the correct direction before inserting 
into the connector to avoid damaging either the 
plug or connector. 



2. Swing the prongs out of the AC Adapter and insert into a 

standard 120-volt AC wall outlet. 

The AC Adapter should be correctly oriented in a 
vertical or floor mounted-position. The cord should 
always face downward. 



3. When fully charged, the recharge indicator LED will go out.

If the recharge indicator LED is not lit, make sure the AC Adapter is connected properly to both the 
system and the outlet. 

If the recharge indicator LED is blinking, there is a chance that the battery pack is not installed correctly. 
Check to make sure installation is correct (see page 17). 


NOTE: If you play a game while the system is recharging, the recharge indicator LED may not always turn off 
once charging has completed. This is not a malfunction. 


4. Remove the AC Adapter from the wall outlet and fold the prongs back into the housing. Remove the 
DC plug from the AC Adapter connector. 


IMPORTANT: When disconnecting any plugs from the Nintendo DSi XL or wall outlet, carefully 
pull by the plug itself rather than by the cord.

shown below. 



IMPORTANT STYLUS AND SCREEN GUIDELINES: 

• Use the stylus ONLY on the Touch Screen (lower screen). 

• Use only enough pressure to operate the game. Excessive pressure may damage 
the Touch Screen. 

• Do not use the stylus if it is broken. 

• Use only a Nintendo licensed stylus on the Touch Screen. 

• Replace the smaller stylus in the stylus holder when not in use. 

• If you use a screen protector on your Nintendo DSi XL, use only a Nintendo licensed 
screen protector. 


IMPORTANT: If the Touch Screen becomes dirty or contaminated with foreign material, do not 
continue to use your Nintendo DSi XL. It may not work properly and can become more 
damaged. Follow the cleaning procedures below. If it still does not work after cleaning, visit 
support.nintendo.com for information on repair service. 


■ Screen Cleaning Procedure 

If the screens on your Nintendo DSi XL have visible smudges, fingerprints, or other foreign material on them, 
you can clean them by using a soft clean cloth such as a lens or eyeglass cleaning cloth. 

1. Slightly dampen the cloth with water ONLY and wipe off the screens to loosen any dirt or foreign 
material. 

2. Using a dry cloth, wipe the screens to dry them and finish the cleaning process. If needed, repeat the 
process.

■ Calibrating the Touch Screen 

You can adjust the Touch Screen if it doesn't seem to respond properly or if the Touch Screen is not 
responding to the same place you're touching it. 

• If the Touch Screen is not responding properly, first try removing any screen protectors (sold separately) 

that you may have added to your Nintendo DSi XL. 



1. Select System Settings from the Nintendo DSi Menu. 

2. Select screen number 3 by tapping the #3 box at the top of the screen or by tapping the arrow on

O Nintendo DSi Camera 

With Nintendo DSi Camera, you can take photos with 
eleven different lenses, watch slide shows of your 
photos, and exchange photos with other Nintendo 
DSi/Nintendo DSi XL systems. 

IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to the Nintendo DSi 
Camera, do not point it at the sun or other very 
intense sources of light. 



Getting Started 


When you start Nintendo DSi Camera, you will have several options available. Tap the Touch Screen to 
make a selection.

How Many Photos Can I Save? 


Check the Photos Remaining display to see how many photos you can save in your selected 
location. Because photo-data size can vary, this number is only a rough indicator—it does not 
reflect a precise number of photos. 

Depending on the size of your SD Card, you can save up to 3,000 photos maximum.

Parental Controls 



Nintendo strives to create an environment that is fun and enjoyable for all users and has designed tools 
to allow parents or guardians to limit the games and applications that may be inappropriate for some 
members of their household. There is one Parental Control setting per system, so it is recommended that 
you put the settings on the most secure that you need for your family; you can then share the PIN with 
users who may be allowed access to blocked content and features. 

What Can Parental Controls Restrict? 


• Nintendo DSi Exclusive and Compatible Software 

Restrict use of software based on ESRB ratings guidelines. NOTE: You cannot use this to restrict the use 
of Nintendo DS™ software or software downloaded via DS Download Play. 

• PictoChat 

Restrict the use of this application. 

• DS Download Play 

Restrict the use of this application. 

• Nintendo DSi Browser 

Restrict the use of the Nintendo DSi Browser to browse the Internet. See the section, Nintendo DSi 
Browser, in this manual for more information on using Parental Controls. 

• Nintendo DSi Shop 

Restrict use of Nintendo DSi Points. NOTE: You can limit use of Nintendo DSi Points but Parental Controls 
does not restrict purchase of Nintendo DSi Points made with a credit card. 

• Photo exchange 

Restrict the exchange of photographs over local wireless communications using Nintendo DSi Camera. 

• Other 

Restrict the exchange of user-generated content. 

Video and Computer Game Software Rating Information 

The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) ratings are designed to provide information about video 
and computer game content, so you can make informed purchasing decisions. ESRB ratings have two parts; 
rating symbols suggest age appropriateness for the game, and content descriptors indicate elements in a 
game that may have triggered a particular rating and/or may be of interest or concern. 

To take full advantage of the ESRB rating system, it's important to check both the rating symbol 
(found on the front of the game box) and the content descriptor (found on the back of the game box). 

Go to www.esrb.org for a complete list of these content descriptors. 

The ESRB rating system is designed to provide information about a computer or video game. The ratings 
are not meant to recommend which games consumers should buy or rent or to serve as the only basis for 
choosing a product. Rather, individuals should use the ESRB ratings together with personal tastes and 
standards when deciding what is best to purchase. 

For more information on the ESRB and video game ratings, go to the ESRB web site at www.esrb.org. 





Titles rated RP (Rating 
Pending) have been 
submitted to the ESRB and 
are awaiting final rating.

INFORMATION COLLECTED 

"Personal Information" is information that may be used to identify you such as your name, address, telephone number, or name based 
email address (for example, Nintendo@Nintendo.com). We only collect Personal Information you provide to us or as described below. 
If you choose not to provide us with Personal Information, use of your Nintendo DSi will not be affected, except to the extent that 
certain features, such as those described in the section immediately below, request disclosure of certain Personal Information. 

In addition to the Personal Information you provide to us, we may collect anonymous information from you such as your age, gender, 
geographic area, Nintendo DSi internet protocol (IP) address, and media access control (MAC) address. We will not link your Personal 
Information with any anonymous or aggregate information we collect from you unless (1) you authorize us to do so; (2) you choose 
to link your DSi Shop Account to your Club Nintendo account; (3) we notify you first; or (4) we are responding to legal process. In order 
to provide you with more customized services, we may also receive and record information on our server logs from the Nintendo 
Wi-Fi Connection Service (WFC), including but not limited to your IP address, MAC address, cookies, transactions, settings and 
download activity. If you do not want Nintendo to collect this information you can turn off Nintendo WFC on your Nintendo DSi. If you 
provide sensitive information when communicating with third parties via your Nintendo DSi, Nintendo does not receive or collect that 
information. Your Nintendo DSi may store on its hard drive Personal Information or sensitive information for your convenience. 

HOW SUCH INFORMATION IS COLLECTED AND USED 

We may collect Personal, anonymous or aggregate information from you for several purposes including to: (i) customize your 
Nintendo DSi Shop catalog and other catalogs; (ii) communicate with you regarding games, contests, sweepstakes, surveys, product 
changes, Nintendo WFC issues and more; (iii) facilitate your use of certain Nintendo DSi applications and features; (iv) process orders 
you have placed through your Nintendo DSi; and (v) set up repair orders. Some of the types of information collected and the way the 
information is handled are detailed by category below. 

Surveys: We may conduct surveys of Nintendo DSi users. The information we collect from you in a survey will be demographic or 
opinion information and will not be tied to your Personal Information unless we notify you otherwise. The results of anonymous or 
aggregate data collected from surveys, but not Personal Information, may be disclosed to the public. 

Contests and Sweepstakes: We may host various contests and sweepstakes. To enter you may be required to submit certain 
Personal Information about yourself. For more information about Nintendo contests or sweepstakes, please see the official rules of the 
contest or sweepstake you are entering. 

Nintendo DSi Online Applications: Certain Nintendo DSi online applications may request anonymous information from you, which we 
may use to recommend games to you or to develop new games and services. For more information, please visit http://support.nintendo.com. 

Nintendo DSi Shop Account: If you pay for items through the Nintendo DSi Shop with your credit card, you need to provide a valid 
credit card number, expiration date, credit card security code and your city, state/county/province and zip code/postal code. We do 
not ask for your name or your complete address unless you order items that we must ship to you, rather than deliver via a download. 
You must be over the age of 18 to place orders online. Any credit card information you submit through the Nintendo DSi Shop will be 
transmitted using SSL encryption. All such encrypted information will be maintained and processed by Nintendo and its trusted third 
party credit card processors on secure computers that are not accessible from the Internet. This encrypted information is subject to the 
section below entitled "Security." 

IP Addresses: Your Nintendo DSi is automatically assigned an IP address by your Internet Service Provider when you connect to 
Nintendo WFC. Nintendo WFC automatically creates log files of user activities via Nintendo WFC and may also record the IP address 
and MAC address of users. In general, we only use log files to monitor traffic on our Web sites and to troubleshoot technical problems.

using Nintendo WFC we may block your IP address. We do not link IP addresses to Personal Information unless we notify you or 
unless necessary to enforce our Nintendo DSi EULA or Code of Conduct or to respond to legal process. 


Web Beacons: Certain Nintendo DSi online applications may use a common Internet technology called "Web beacons" (also 
called "Web bugs,""action tags,""pixel trackers,"or"dear GIFs"), which are small graphic images placed on a Web page, Web-based 
document, or in an email message, designed to collect certain information and monitor user activity online. Web beacons are 
invisible to you because they are typically very small (only 1-by-1 pixel) and the same color as the background of the Web page, 
document or email message. We may use Web beacons to collect anonymous information such as the Nintendo DSi IP address, MAC 
address, the URL of the page the Web user comes from, and the time the Web beacon is activated (such as when you view the Web 
page, advertisement, or email containing the Web beacon). We do not use Web beacons to collect Personal Information. We may use 
the anonymous information collected through Web beacons to determine how to improve the Nintendo DSi applications by seeing 
which areas, features, and products are most popular; personalizing the Nintendo DSi services and making recommendations based

Nintendo DSi Code of Conduct, free of charge. All capitalized terms not defined in this Nintendo DSi Code of Conduct will have 

the meaning set forth in the Nintendo DSi Services User Agreement. 

1. Your use of the Nintendo DSi Service is subject to this Nintendo DSi Code of Conduct, which prohibits all harmful, illegal or 
otherwise offensive conduct, including, but not limited to the following: 

• Misrepresenting, impersonating, abusing, stalking, threatening or harassing any person or company, including, but not 
limited to other users, Nintendo itself, and/or its employees, moderators, or staff.
