Wotterz.

This is a problem with the cpu on the systemboard. I've seen this problem many times if the DS Lite is felt to the ground. The contacts of the cpu are very fragile. The DS Lite turns on, green led available, even charche is working bot nothing else. Repair of this problem is almost impossible. The only thing you can do is send it to Nintendo.

You can test if it is the cpu by removing the bottom of the DS Lite and put the battery on te contacts.
Press firmly on slot 1 (the aluminium cover) and turn the DS Lite on. If you got a picture on the screens then you know it for sure. The cpu is located under slot 1 and by pressing on de top of the slot you are pressing possible loose contacts back on de systemboard.

If it is not working then the cpu is to musch damaged.

Let us know what you've found with this solution.

Hold the DS to an alternate light source. Check to see if any pixels of anything are showing up on both the screens. If you can see the Main Menu's different coloured pixels then you might have a bad backlight.

I turn on my ds green light comes on bottom screen flashes then turns off


    • 1 Turn off the Nintendo DS, and place it on the charger. Leave the device for 45 minutes to allow it to gain a full charge, and then power it back on. Weak Nintendo ds lite batteries may cause screen flicker.
    • 2 Turn off the DS, and remove all game cartridges. Turn the system back on to launch the main menu.
    • 3 Click the small sun icon to open the brightness menu. Adjust the brightness level using your stylus. Turn it up to max to improve back lighting.
    • 4 Check that the Nintendo DS is open and in the locked position. It must be open to its default position to operate properly.

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 is on but both screens are black and no sound


For GBA games the green light is meant to stay on. The orange light will stay on as long as its recharging. It will turn off when its fully recharged or when you unplug it

Nintendo DS lite power light comes on but both screens stay dark?


When you boot the Nintendo DS you can change the illumination settings in the main menu.
One the main menu, you will find a sunny symbol in the lower left corner of the screen. Click on that and you should be able to change the level of illumination. If you are also wondering if you can change the brightness during game play, you can't. Games such as Mario 64 DS come with support for brightness change but otherwise you have to do it before game play.
