Ok, then if it doesnt charge, it most likely means the battery became corrupted by something, either a bad polarity or power surge. But the bonus of this outcome is that it is covered under warrenty by Nintendo.

They will replace the battery inside the DS lite, all you need to do is contact them, I will supply the link at the bottom of the page, just explain in Detail the problem, and they will supply you will information for mailing the DS to them.

I know this kinda sucks, but the great thing about the Nintendo company is that they are far more responsible and caring about their customers than any other gaming industry giant.

From here, depending on what country you are from, you select, then go to customer support.

Psp orange light and green light only thing that will come on whats wrong with it can it be fixed

You need to replace the battery. When this occurred on mine, the battery was completely dead and wouldn't hold a charge. PS. The battery has to have at least a 25% charge to update the system firmware.

I charged it, but when I push the power button it turns on then off by itself....what could be the prob?

Depending on the age, could be an old battery that can not hold the charge. Batteries also have memory, you are best to run the battery completely dead then charge completely. The only way to test the theory is to plug it in and see if it works while plugged in, if so it is the battery that can not hold a charge.

Dual shock 3 won't charge. Forgot to hook-up last night.

Your battery might be dead. I'm fairly certain that's what happened with two of my controllers. They still work, but they need to stay on the USB cable, they both completely lost their ability to hold a charge. If this is the case for you, just keep it on the charger and you'll be fine.

How do you fix a psp that the green light only comes on for a 1/2 sec.

My psp gives me this problem all the time. In my case it is because my battery is completely dead and i am too cheap to purchase a new one. You most likely just have a dead battery, try charging it for a day (over exaggerating) and see if you can turn it on for longer than a half a second, if you can..its the battery.

PSP Does not work at all

Yes the battery could very much be dead since the PSP hasnt been used in quite a while. I would go to a store such as walmart or target and buy a new battery. Charge this one and try it in the PSP. If this doesnt work, return the battery for a refund and send the PSP in for repair to SONY.

DS Lite Completely crashed

Some R4 cards were known to "brick" DS's. Not sure if they were defective or made that way. So it looks like your DS is dead. Unfortunately, this is the risk you take when you use 3rd party hardware.

Power issues

Have you charged the battery? It sounds like the battery is completely dead. If charging the battery doesn't work, or if the battery just doesn't want to charge, you should replace the battery. New ones are available directly from Nintendo, and you can install them yourself.
