Sorry, I took one of these bad boys apart.. No fuses inside. Sounds like when you turned it off incorrectly it burnt the power relay. if its under warrany call Sony and they will fix it for free, even send you a box with postage to send it to them.

My ds lite doesnt power up but the battery is fully charged

You could have blowed the internal fuse on the board. If you turn on and the light on the right top flashes then goes out you have blowed the fuse. Easy to repair just google it there are plenty of pictures showing its placement. I have fixed before with a new fuse available on eBay for pence or you could use a small bit of fuse wire to bridge the fuse. Hope this helps you out

My Wii console will not turn on. It's has power to it as the TV works fine. is there an internal fuse or master reset switch inside that can be replaced? I've tried plugging into another outlet also with...

No Master reset. There is a reset button on the wii but his only works if your wii turn on.
But there is a fuse and I think the fuse is the problem if you think your power supply is good

Buy a tri-crew drive ship on ebay $2
fix it by your self because you have no warranty (it is 6 years old)
open it up then replace the fuse
here is where the fuse should be

This will also help to open up the wii

Make sure to order the fuse with the screw driver too. It should cost you less than $10
If you don't want to replace the fuse, just use wire and solder the two solder pads for the fuse but this method is bad.

Please rate if this helped you.

It needs a new power supply

Find out which version you have . For example " CECHxxxxx" or whatever
Then hit Ebay and find a replacement

There's one torx bit (#8 I think) screw under the cap on the top end

Then all the other screws are philips

No power

Check power cable preferably with a multimeter to detect high resistance. If resistance is negligible then it may be the internal fuse. See owner's manual to see how to check for fuse. I have assumed that you have a socket delivering correct voltage to your console.
