    my problem is the same power lite comes on but nothing happens

  • rjmail Sep 18, 2008

    The green light turns on, but nothing happens. I have tried the boot-up bypass by hitting several key combinations that I found on the web, but this doesn't always work. Somtimes the DS Lite will start up and the game that is in will work for 30 sec or several minutes. Sometimes the sound is vey "scatchy" and then the DS goes blank. The battery is good, as I have tested it with other systems. Any Ideas????

    My daughter's ds has the same problem.

  • PanaReparMan May 11, 2010

    So the DS is fully charged?

    Was it ever dropped or wet?

    Does the green light stay-on?

    Do either (or both) of the screens flash or flicker?

    Does the DS stay switched on, if you turn it on and leave it for 4 minutes?

Ditto... except my daughter is 10. Both screens remain black, are fully charged and green light stays on for more than 4 minutes.

Ds light green,dim green, amber then off when power is turned on


Sounds like you need to send it in for repair. I had sent my console to VideoGame911.com and they repaired mine at a great cost and got it back at the end of the week. Give them a try, they are cheaper than a manufacturer. Good luck!

My ds lite just switched off and it was charged


Hi, so if you try switching on the ds lite, nothing at all happens ??
Does the green light flash even if it is for like a split second.If it does then it is more likely top be a blown fuse. If 1 of your screens flicker also, this could be your problem as the ds will not start up with a broken screen. Please advise

My nintendo ds lite powers up green light comes on but screens stay black


It sounds like the screens connection to the board is messed up in some way. Maybe something came loose and you could fix it by opening it up. Most likely though there is nothing you can really do. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

DS lite-the green power light will come on every time, but the screens remain black. Will turn on and work fine after 10-15 tries but seems to be getting worse.


It is probably because something hard hit your ds, or it fell on the floor This causes the game generator to get jammed. It will turn on, but nothing will hapen. Get it repaired or get a new one. P.S.- For future reference, put a hard ds cover on your ds so this wont happen again. But something called the Ds Y is coming out soon, so you can wait until that comes out. It is even newer than the ds or the dsi.

Ds lite flashes on but fuses are ok


One or both your screens have blown.

Try removing the motherboard from the screens and attach the battery the green light should turn on and stay on.

Now attach the lower screen and turn on. If the screen is ok the screen and green light will flash and then turn off. (if the screen doesn't flash the bottom screen is you're problem and will have to be replaced)

If this happens the problem is then you're top screen which you will have to replace.

DS lite green light comes on, top screen flash,then switches off


Check L2 near the power switch on your DS mobo. That part usually get loosen or taken out when you drop your DS. And usually you can recover it when dismantling your DS.
