Dropped Nintendo DS Lite on wooden floor - NOW IT WON'T TURN ON
My son dropped his Nintendo DS Lite on to a wooden floor. Now it won't turn on. When I plug it in to charge, the charging light stays a solid orange colour but when I push the ON switch, nothing happens. There's no visual damage and it was closed when he dropped it so the screen etc is all fine. It was only dropped from a height of about 3 feet. Any advice ....... other than having to buy a new one, would be gratefully received. Many Thanks
Re: Dropped Nintendo DS Lite on wooden floor - NOW IT...
Remove the battery for a few mins and put it back in and try again? Its a long shot but theres very little you can do with this, the insides of the DS lite are REALLY small and the only replaceable parts are the screen, buttons, etc. and you cant really fix damage to the board or chips inside which presumably is whats happened here if you get zero response. Sorry.. :(

Might be worth taking it into a phone repair shop to see if they can replace the LCD screen. (yes, a phone repair shop - a lot of them do portable console screens too!) If they can't do it, it's probably unfixable realistically.
Not sure if this will help you, but my son dropped his on to a concrete pavement and it wen black, the charge lite would only come up for one second then go out when I plugged it in to charge. Just for fun, I had a spare battery and changed it. In this instance, the system started working again.
Not sure how this can happen, but dropping it on the floor seems to have killed the battery that was in it. A simple replacement battery did the trick for me.
