Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

Nintendo DS Lite Purchased in the USA

I purchsed a Nintendo DS Lite in the USA and I am having problems with recharging the battery as there is no orange light showing that it is being recharged and obviously when I turn it on, it goes dead after the initial opening screen. I am living in the UK and use a normal travel adaptor. Any suggestions or should I just order a new Console adaptor with a UK 3 pin plug, will I also need to order a rechargeable batterie in the UK so that I can use the 3 pin plug with this? Does anyone know if there is a power convertor switch on the console are the units pretty much universal. Any help would be appreciated as I bought two consoles in the US for my daughters xmas present.

Thanks

Does a nintendo ds lite need the battery in to power up on just the adaptor?


The adaptor is only to recharge the battery. If you only use the adaptor without battery, I'm sure nothing will happen. You need the battery in or you can't play. But you can play with both the battery and adaptor in at the same time. It makes your battery recharge + you can play meantime.

Nintendo DS won't power-up


It sounds like a faulty battery. As it is under 1 year old, it is still under warranty. Return it to the origional place of purcase, who will either fix or replace it.

Nintendo DS Battery charger


If its the charger that is it probably the charger its the battery. And a universal charger would work but try not to buy it off line if you can.

It can't be recharged


The DS's battery has a limit to how many times you charge it,but then again the charger's wire inside it might be disconnected.
Try to buy a new DS charger and see if its the wire,if its not then try to call nintendo to see if they might be able to replace the battery(for a fee).

Hey rorufer,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, Nintendo products made for use within the U.S. are not desgined for overseas use. This unfortunately means that games purchased within the U.S. may not function correctly when used in a DS Lite purchased in Europe.

Some of the most common reasons why this restriction would be in place are potential language barriers (for warnings, operating instructions and disclaimers), as well as differing government regulations between the two regions regarding the product's warranty or potential safety/electrical concerns.

While some users may report cross-compatiblity between foreign consoles and select game titles, this cannot be guaranteed in every instance. Nintendo itself has suggested only purchasing games for the DS Lite (and other consoles) in the region where the DS Lite itself is purchased.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
