Nintendo ds lite won't power up

This ds won't turn on, no lights with the switch, the only time you get a light is when the charger is pluged in and thats only about a second. Tried known good battery. checked f1 and f2 fuses with a meter and the appear to be ok. Any help anyone can give me would be appreciated.

    I have exactly the same problem described. It happened after the DS hit the ground. Fuses seems ok, tested with multimeter. Red light on for 1 second plugging in AC.

Try two things.

  1. One of the LCD screens is making a short circuit. Disconnect them and see if the charge led turns on. If so, check these screens (or replace them)
  2. You could also have a defective Wireless PCB (the small PCB that has the black Wifi Cable connected). If that PCB is defective, loose or even missing, the DS Lite will do nothing at all

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.

Ds lite wont power on the green light is on, any suggestions of a diy repair


The wireless board on the main motherboard must be checked to see if it has come loose. This presents as the charge orabge lamp works with the charger pluged in, On green light comes on when power switch pushed once and stays on without flashing. Pushing the power switch once more puts the green light out. Bruce

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?

Try a different charger if you can just to verify if yours is bad or not. If it works with a different charger then you know yours is bad.

If another charger doesn't work then you know that the DS is bad and you would need to get a new DS.
