    I have the same problem although when i plug the charger into it the red light comes on for about 1 second and then goes out again. My husband was playing it and he dropped it as he got up and it just turned itself off - it has never turned back on since.

I had the same problem this Xmas with the kids´ new US-bought Nintendos. Wouldn´t charge in Ireland. Solution: I have a universal travel adapter. This converts 3-pin(UK, Ireland) and 2-flatpin (US) plugs to European round 2-pin. The problem then is that the voltage here is too high. So I plugged it into the shaver adapter in the bathroom, which has a 240 or 115-volt option. Plugged it into the 115v (as the US is 120v, I think), and hey presto, the orange charging light comes on! This means, however, that I can only charge my kids´ nintendos one at a time, off the bathroom shaver. An advantage is that it will teach them patience. Another is that when I´m sick to death of them playing the stupid things, I can use it as an excuse...."No, you can´t play with your DS, it won´t be charged until tomorrow..."

    Sorry, my solution was posted in the wrong thread....I´m new here. I was trying to solve the problem for another poster who bought a DS in the US and it wouldn´t charge in Ireland. Apologies.

There,s a chance that the turn on-switch inside has broken.
it's a little piece of plastic inside. than your on-knob can't touch that little thingy.

Nintendo DS Lite - does not charge

i would suggest trying to find what the issue is, if you know anyone who has a different charger, try it on your daughter's ds. if it still doesn't work, it's a DS problem...if it's under warranty, go to whatever store you bought it at and have them fix or replace it. If you try the different charger and it DOES work, then the only problem is the then all you have to do is go buy a new charger...hope this helps.

Nintendo DS will NOT charge

My guess is that the problem resides in the charger. You can buy a dual use charger for the DS and DS Lite at GameStop for relatively cheap.
