If green light flashes on then of when powering up (which i coz charger wud do same if so) then its ur f1 or f2 fuses or both that have blown and need bridging over with solder (replacing them very difficult), both are labelled on motherboard so not too hard to find (f1 is below charging point and f2 is below that near bottom right hand slot type 1 port). if green light does'nt flash on at all then check the l2 inductor (small black chip) is stiil in place has this is prone to falling off (its situated directly below the power switch labelled L2, if loose resolder it, if missing hunt around in ur nds 4 it as shud b sumwhere. if u cant find it buy 1 from ebay (type in L2 inductor there is 1 seller and price is £2.85 inc p+p) oh and purchase a tri-wing screwdriver also if u havnt got 1. if u havnt been inside a nds b4 then youtube it and be carefull not to snap power lever off. good luck and let me no if it worked

There maybe something wrong with the jack inside your Nintendo DS, you can easily get them repaired at a few shops, just tell them that the On/Off switch doesn't turn the DS on and they'll fix it for you, shouldn't cost an awful lot as they're just replacing something inside.

Ds lite is reading system date error


Known problem with the NDS Cards but here is a temporary fix:Take out the NDS cards and start up DS without them
  • Tap the symbol in the middle of the screen at the bottom that looks like a DS.
  • Tap the blue box with a calender and clock in.
  • Change the date a month or two back.
  • Restart DS with NDS cards in.
Even though this is temporary the people at NDS are working for a solution. But until then you might just have to keep putting the date back.

NDS lite has the power(green lite flashes), but screens wont lit


Hi,

When you switch the DS lite on you should notice that one of the screens flashes... if thats correct then the screen that doesn't flash is the one that will need replacing which, I would assume is the upper screen as judging by what you say has a damaged ribbon.

Ds lite not working


i had same problem ( bought a faulty nds off ebay and would charge but nothing when powering up, not even a blink of green light) problem is a component called a L2 its an inductor 33uH in case SMD 1007. its situated dirrectly under the power switch but they are prone to fall off when nds is dropped ect. you need to resolder it on (very tricky). give your nds a shake to see if you can hear it rattelling about. be carefull when opening your nds not to lose the part (its very small, about 4mm long 2mm wide) GOOD LUCK

How long have you had that battery in your DS? The more you use (play and charge) the battery, the battery's capacity is decreased. Try getting a new battery at,

Nds lite doesnt power off


Dear Cornjo,

Your situation has baffled me completly. Here are some solutions that might help you:
  • How old is your DS/DS Lite? If it is less than 1 year old or if you have a gurantee for more than 1 year, you can take it back to the shop.
  • Try taking out the battery and not putting it back for at least 24 hours
  • Charge your DS COMPLETLY and do not use it for a while
