When dropped, it could be a defective microcontroller. Not the first time I see that.
Also it could be a resistor next to the power switch. That can be broken if it felt down.
Best solution is to let is examine by a DS Lite repair shop or send it to Nintendo. If you send it to Nintendo, don't mention that it was dropped.

Nintendo ds won't turn on


Many times, it is the L2 Inductor chip that has popped off on impact- that's usually what you hear rattling around inside the housing...and it requires a TriWing screwdriver to open it. I tried re-soldering the L2 inductor back on the mainboard inside with a Hakko ESD protective soldering station, and it worked for a few days and then died again. The fix was finally desoldering another SMD inductor chip off an old PIII Socket 370 motherboard (with ChipQuik removal solder and flux kit) of very close to the same size class, from next to the Clock Generator Chip- figured it would be close to the right value, since I had no way to measure the micro- or millihenries value, and the voltage was around the value that the DS Lite runs on. The fix worked, and is still working, charging, and going strong. Usually the symptoms of the L2 inductor popping off, or failing, is being able to charge, but not being able to power up.

New Ds lite doesn't start after using R4 card


Me thinks you have the wrong R4 software installed on the chip....

I've done a few of these and all worked fine,,,, even a R4 III which was a tricky little number...... if it is the R4 III - i went for the older software and it worked,,,,, the new version failed on me.

I'll report back here in 30 mins....

I have a major problem!!!!!!!! Please try to help!!!!!!!!:((


you will need to replace the upper lcd screen, when the power light came off it caused the top and bottom shell to shift back and forth causing the lcd ribbon to become damaged, the flash you see is the power from the botton trying to make it's way to the top, send to ebay ed-kar-3 for $38.00 to fix

Power problems with DS Lite


Really sounds like a dead battery. The DS will not work if the battery is bad even when it's plugged in. You get the quick flash of the power light and that's it.
