    I broke the charging port the Nintendo DS Lite and how do you fix it?

  • Anonymous Apr 28, 2009

    My NDS Lite is not charging. When I plug it into the power socket with the charger, the amber charging light does not come on. When I try playing it after unplugging it, its red light comes on, signalling a need for charging.

I had the same problem. Here is the fix. Look at where the charging plug goes into the unit. there is a metal band around the inside of the port. You need to get a very small screw driver or something similar that you can stick in between the band on the top of the opening and the unit, so as to push the metal band out a little so that it makes better contact with the charging plug. Dont bend it too much, just a little. Then plug in the charger and all should be back to normal.

I got my DS in 2009 april, then on september i lost my charger then on march 2010 i found my charger then i found out i could'nt find my DS anymore a few months later i found my DS i charged then it...


The red LED indicates low power. When the DS is charging an orange LED should be on and the DS can be switched on, giving a second green light. If you tried charging it but the orange LED did not come on or only came on for a few seconds then the battery has not charged. The charger may be faulty or the power connector on the DS may be faulty. You need to try another charger. If another charger does not work then the DS is faulty and needs repair. It could be the power connector or the battery or some other fault inside.
If the amber LED comes on to indicate that the battery is charging then the battery should be fully charged within 3 hours. If the DS does not switch on after charging then the battery may be faulty. It can be removed by opening the cover on the bottom of the DS.
You should try and find a friend with a DS who will let you try their charger and battery in your DS.
If the DS itself is faulty it will probably be uneconomical to repair. If this is the case then try selling it on ebay as a faulty DS.

My PS3 wont let me play without the controller being connected.If I do disconnect the controller it asks me to reconnect.


The battrey is probably to old and will not charge. try another controller and see if that charges and stays charged when you unplug it. or try pressing the reset button on the controller.

PSP won't come on.


yes. the problem here is that adaptors dont convert voltage. so when you put the psp on charge in ireland it must have fried the circuits so that they wouldn't work. this means that the psp is ruined
