Sklind2,

You have a defective screen (probably the upper). Replace it with a new one or send it to Nintendo for repair.

Mr. Teacake,

Never...never..put a wet cartridge in the DS Lite. Even when it is left to dry. Water is funnest for avery electronic device. You made for almost 99% certain a short circuit and blown out the microfuse (F1 or F2) on the mainboard. It could be much worse but check F1 & F2 first. See Google for their locations

My DS wont turn on so I try to charge it the orange light comes on but eventually it turns off an suggestions?


Hi,

When you say it doesn't turn on does the green light come on at all?

If the green light stays on for 1-2secs then you should see one of the screens flash, if that happens then you will need to replace the screen that doesn't flash. If you need to replace the top screen follow this guide, or if you need to replace the bottom screen follow this guide.

If there is no green light at all then the chances are the "F2" fuse has blown. To replace the fuse follow this guide.

If you need help taking the DS lite apart follow this guide.

The guides are written by me so if you need any extra help or if you have any more questions don't hesitate to contact me.

Hope tis helps.

Regards,

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.

Flashing bottom screen (Nintendo DS Lite)


You need to check the top screen ribbon is fully inserted into to place on the board. A green light and flash of the screen within a second means ribbon not connecting right

My DS lite is turning on then off


How did you break off the charging light?

Anyway, you probably need a new battery. The battery loses it's capability to hold a charge after each time it is charged so all you need is a new battery.
