Question about Nintendo DS Console
When i plug my charger into my Nintendo DS the orange light comes on for about 5 seconds then goes off again. I then take the charger out, plug it back in and it does exactly the same thing again over and over. However, if the DS is turned on, the orange light will stay on. What's the matter with it and are you able to still charge your DS when its switched on or does it not charge at all when on?
That just means it's charged all the way! Is it dead?When you're using it (i.e. it's on) it's sapping the power as it's taking it in, so the light stays on and it keeps charging (which can blow the fuse to your screen BTW). The DS/charger just has a curious thing where even when charged the orange light turns on to tell you that it's plugged in correctly, and then it shuts off.

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.

Likely not, as the DS Phat and Lite use a special charger that you can get at Walmart or somewhere similar for cheap, although I'd complain about it to whoever you bought the DS from and see if you can get a free charger from them.
