You may be having problems with the battery in the back of the DS or the connection that the lead goes into. When you plug the lead in, move it about at the connection holding the wire close to the console, if you find that the light comes on then goes off again when you let go or move it, it will be the connection on the actuall DS. The only other thing I can suggest to check the battery, is to remove the battery from your DS and try another one from a friends DS to see if it works with a different battery.

I hope this helps

My ds lite won't charge.. the orange light appeared blinked


We had this problem with a brand new DS Lite...turns out it was a bad charger. If you have access to another charger, try that first. Good luck!

When The DS Boots the top screen flashes for a second and the whole unit turns off.


You should try charging the DS system if the light is red. Make sure both the outlet you plug the DS into, the charger, and the DS charging port are not damaged. If this does not work, try visiting this website: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/index.jsp or calling Nintendo Customer Service at 1-800-255-3700.

Hope this helped,

My ds wont turn on all i do is plug in the charger then flick the switch really fast then the light turns on for half a second then stops wat do i do I came home one day from a trip, I decided to use my DS...


Do any screens flash?

I would say its a fuse / grounding out / or battery is destroyed.


If you can, try a different battery.. Has your battery and/or DS had any previous water damage?

My DS will only play when plugged in


You have a loose fuse on your circuit board, or your charger port needs to be replaced.
I will fix it for you. $30 for the work and I will pay the return shipping,

Nintendo ds wont charge


cheekiemunke,

First of all, your DS Lite is charging both ways.....with power on and without power on.
You have for almost 99% sure a blown fuse F2 on the systemboard.
If you can solder you can try to replace it with a new one but be adviced, it is tricky if you don't have the skills with soldering SMD components and it can send your DS lite to the trash.
So my advice is find someone that repair DS Lites or order a fuse on eBay and try it yourself.

Regards

Nintendo DS Will Not Charge


Try if the battery is charged right, when batter is fully charged disconnect from AC adapter. Hold the power button for 5 seconds. If it does not work that means that you need a replacement battery for the Nintendo DS. When you receive the replacement batter, follow the steps again.
