New ds lite will not save initial settings

Hi, I have a DS Lite bought in Singapore, brand new boxed & sealed. I've charged up the battery & gone over the start up wizard, name, date time etc, however when you are prompted to re-boot to save the settings, it just returns to the set up screen. Also the touch screen appears to freeze on the date screen? Any suggestions?

    Hiya!



    My mums DS does exactly the same ( won't save settings and freezes on date) although my mum's DS has never been dropped and was bought from a shop in England. I've been told it's something to do with the software and can occur when cheats have been used (although this is not the case with my mums. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

Either the battery has stopped functioning properly and needs replacing, or one of the battery terminal connecters has become loose and needs to be replaced with a new battery terminal (as the battery acts as a lithium battery found in a pc to save the bios settings), but they are quite difficult to desolder and reapply, best bet is to probably get another mobo. Touch screen ribbon cable could have worked loose and needs tweaking or the connector is faulty and again needs to be replaced.

DS charging..light stays orange...


It could mean that the Motherboard (Main Circuit) could be damaged or could be a fuse problem as you may have said. Although it actually might be the battery, there's one way to find out, if your friend has a DS Lite, ask them if you could borrow your battery for 2 seconds and put their battery in yours to see if it is the battery, if the same thing happens, its the Motherboard (Main Circuit)

Ds Lite Will not charge for longer than 5-10 seconds


It might be a defective battery. Try putting the new battery in a DS lite that you know works. If the other DS works with its own battery, but doesn't with with your battery, then your battery is most likely defective.

Or you could take the battery out of a good DS that turns on and can do everything, and put it in your DS. If your DS still doesn't work, even with the other DS's battery, then your DS might be broken.

Charger stuck in ds lite


Gently wiggle the charger from side to side, not too much incase you break the pins. it may be a little stiff to start with. Apply a fair amount of force and have lots of patience : )

Hope this helps,

Ndsl power problem


As Bob (HowlingMad) said, the Ds and Ds Lite will turn off immediately after being turned on if the connection to the top screen is broken.

Check the connections between the screen and Ds, if they look damaged then try replacing the ribbon cable for the top screen (or you may have to replace the whole screen - i'm not sure if it is built together on the Ds Lite). If the connections appear fine then it may be that due to the movement the connector has come out of it's socket/plug (also like Bob said), this is easily fixable if this is the case and would require you to take the casing off your Ds and plug it back in.

Hope this helps

Keeps redoing initial set-up


Turn it on, then let the battery die completely, this will take a while but it may work, then charge it fully and see if it works, sometimes new batteries do that sorta thing
