Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
My Nintendto DS Lite will not turn on (with battery or plug) and will not charge. I was told the battery was totally dead so I bought a new battery and installed it today. I still have the same problem. The yellow light stays on for 20 minutes or so while it is plugged in but the green light never appears. The screens will not turn on at all.
What can I do?
I found that if you live over seas, which I do (Egypt), you cannot charge the DS Lite with an adapter. What my husband did was take my orginal DS Lite power charger cord, cut it, then splice it to a mobile phone charger of a close voltage from Egypt. It works great!!!! I also have the gameboy advance which had the same problem, and I used the same solution. This post is for those who live or work over seas.

Try if the battery is charged right, when batter is fully charged disconnect from AC adapter. Hold the power button for 5 seconds. If it does not work that means that you need a replacement battery for the Nintendo DS. When you receive the replacement batter, follow the steps again.

It is worth checking FUSE 1 inside the DS when it will not charge, i have just bridged the FUSE 1 to get my sons to charge, and it charges fine now. Fuses are available on ebay etc, but a lot of forums just say to bridge it !!!!!!!!! Hope this helps.

I had the same problem. I'm an Airman in Iraq right now, and I was trying to charge it using a power adaptor because the outlets are not American. After trial and error, I discovered that a DS won't charge on a power adaptor. Luckily, I found ONE outlet on my base that I can use to charge it. Hope this helps!

Make sure you hold the button for three seconds
