How to reset Nintendo DS Lite.

Remove the cover for the battery compartment. At the back of the DS Lite, the cover has a small screw holding it in place. You will need a Phillips size 0 screwdriver to remove it.
Take out the DS Lite's battery pack. There is a tab at the top of the battery pack. Insert your fingernail or the end of the screwdriver carefully into the edge of this tab and pop out the pack.
Keep the battery pack out of the unit for at least 10 seconds. If you keep the battery pack out for too short of a time, it will not cause a reset in the unit.
Put the battery pack back. Just line it up in the compartment and push it back into place.
Replace the cover. Replace with the screw.
Turn on the DS Lite. If the unit has properly reset, a screen will come up that reads "Before you begin, you must adjust system settings." You can now enter all new settings and information on your DS Lite. If you do not get the system settings screen, you did not keep the battery pack out long enough. Repeat the steps and leave your battery pack out for a longer period of time.

    DS Lite not turning on? Read this tip to find out how to fix it!


    Thank you for a well explained fix to this problem Just one question...I have rarely used a soldering arm and I am worried about causing heat damage etc to the board. I have read about using a "circuit sealer pen" or similar as an alternative? Is this a safer option?

    Nintendo DS Lite Battery needs to be changed. How can I take off cover?


    All you need is a small phillips screwdrive. Use this to undo the small screw and then the cover will come off. The battery is also very easy to take out, just be careful not to damage the pins inside when you remove the battery.

    Hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa

    how do you restart nintendogs


    No No No! Bad Silver! Before You See The Nintendo Sign (It may be after) Press and Hold A +B + X + Y + L Trigger + R Trigger and that's all. Taking Apart Your DS gives you a 99% Chance of epic fail. -_-
