SOURCE: Nintendo DS Lite - Not charging

sounds like you've blown a fuse inside the ds itself. Check on the underside of your console and check if it says "5.2v in" adjacent to your charger port if it does then the uk charger is safe to use. But the fact remains you may of blown a fuse. There are two fuses in the ds and are very small they can be repaired easily if you have any soldering skills.

SOURCE: nintendo not turning on after charging battery


If the unit does not turn on at all (no green light) then the chances are you have blown the F2 fuse...

This fuse is internal and is less than 2mm wide on its longest length.

If you have a warranty I would suggest you send it off for repair, if not you can either find a good repair service on the net (such as ebay) or repair it yourself.

If you do decide to go down the D.I.Y route you will need a few specialist tools and some good soldering skills. As I said before the fuse is very small and so you will need a steady hand to replace it.

All the tools and parts can be found on ebay... If you would like some info on where the fuse is, what tools you will need and how to go about replacing it then click on my name to get to my profile page... from there you will see a list of guides I have written, all the info you should need will be in them.

If you need any further help or advice please feel free to contact me and I will help you out as best I can.

DS Lite Will Not Power On

There is a possibility that your battery has developed a short circuit or is so bad that it pulls down the charge voltage on the charger. You are therefore left starved of a power and therefore no function.
If possible, disconnect the battery and run the DS on the charger power alone. If the DS starts to work, I suggest replacing the battery.

DS Lite: Green light turns on,

Im pretty sure when it gets to the point where it doesn't recognize its own screen is when its time to get a new ds. But if you really want to find out if it can be fixed (and don't mind paying more then its worth) you could to it to electronic shop or best buy to have them look at it.

My DS lite keeps Freezing

Okay if your constantly getting freezeups even after my ideas then that means the mainboard is bad, so unless your ds is under warranty and you can get the board replaced, the ds is bad.

DS Lite Top screen is all white after replaced for new one

you should use a crystal casing because every time you open the ds the wires get messed up or put some thing on the hinge so the ds hinge will not get loose.

Ds loading problem

u throw ur ds on the ground. not plain ground. like a bed or a thck caarpet. this makes the inside particles get into place and not damage anything. if u dont want to risk damage.put it inside a container a littel bit more bigger than the ds. and then put a towel over the ds. now shake the conainer. it always works. only for the ds lite. for onriginal ds, this will break ur screen holder thingy mobob.

Green screen

There is a ribbon that connects the top screen of the ds to the motherboard. It is possible that this ribbon became damaged when the hinge broke. A possible fix would be to replace the upper screen. Hope this helps.
