Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

My daughter recieved a red Nintendo DS lite for her birthday in July 08, it was a present from her uncle. She has somehow damaged the connection at he back so now it won't charge and the socket probably needs replacing. Although its still under 12months old, we don't have the reciept. Any ideas on how to get it fixed and whether I will have to pay?

IF you still have the box it came with, there should be a code on it somewhere, just take it to the store you bought it from and they should have the transaction in the records. IF that doesnt work, try calling the help line for nintendo, they might send you a new one for free, theyll send u a box for u to put ur old ds in, then after 2 weeks or so, theyll either send it back to u fixed or a new one.

Hi, my daughter has a nintendo ds lite that she bought in late July of last year. Today when she turned it on it wanted her to re-enter all start up information, i.e name, date, time, birthday. then it...


This is a well known problem caused by not using the Nintendo DS console for an extended period of time. Inside the actual console is an internal battery, which when left dormant will cease to work. There are two ways to fix this problem:
1) Try to fully charge the Nintendo DS console, then attempt to use it. 2) Contact Nintendo on the following form:

Providing your warranty is still okay, Nintendo will provide you with a new system free of charge - otherwise you may have to pay a replacement fee which will be a fraction of the actual consoles price.

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.

Try getting the latest version of the firmware for ur ds. After u download the firmware, put ur card into card reader. Use computer to delete everything except ur games. Then put the firmware that you downloaded into the card. See if it works.

Hi,
you,ll pay more to have it repaired than to replace it.
I,d suggest buy a new one.
Keep the old one for spares.
Once motherboards/Circuitboards get soaked, it damages the boards/components/solder joints.
