Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
Whilst I am playing my games the power will cut out after about 5 mins, it is not the battery as I have fully charged it and also tried to play games whilst it is charging but it still cuts out.
Any ideas ??
Could be a loose/faulty power switch, after playing for 1 minutes jostle the switch (not all the way to the off position though!) and see if that causes it to switch off - new switches are cheap (<£2.00), then go to your local TV repair center and ask them to fit it! (should be <£5), assuming you take the console to pieces first.
Also sounds like it could be a dry-joint, usually fatal. As you play the circuit board slowly warms up, until the slow heat expansion, forces a soldered connection to fail (finding out which one is the challenge) as the heat makes it come apart.
Finally, where did you buy it, if new, ignore this. Otherwise someone may have by-passed the fuse(s) by hard-wiring them - do a gooGoogle search for "DS Lite Fuse" and you will see pictures to help you see if this has been done. There is no fix.
Finally sell it one eBay for £50 (you will get £50 for it) and buy a new one for £85 - It's only £35 investment and you get a new one!
