I have looked around for you on this issue and several people have the same problem, more people that have the guitar hero ds have the problem more than others. But if you are using the original power cord that came with the ds then I would definately take it back to the shop to get a replacement. If you forcefully try to remove it they may not be so good about replacing it. However, you bought it in good faith so take it back with the cord inserted and see if they can remove it, if they cannot they will have to replace it

I hope this helps

Tip

DS Lite fuse replacement F1 F2


Hi,

Does your DS lite refuse to charge?
Does the orange charge light not come on at all?
Has your DS stopped switching on with no green light at all?
Well this is the guide for you.

Remove the DS lites base plate (for a guide on how to do this see my other tips and tricks) and locate F1 and F2 (see pics)

F1- Charging fuse. Change this one if you have the following issue:
Orange light doesn't come on at all when the charger is inserted and a battery connected.

F2- Console power fuse. Change this one if you have the following issue:
The DS lite console charges but refuses to power on.

If you find that the DS lite console neither charges or switches on i.e. no lights come on, not even for a brief time you can replace both fuses and it "should" resolve the issues, however, I cannot guarantee this as there could be other factors for the lack of power e.g. water damage.

To change a fuse you need to first remove the old one, do this by desoldering either side of itand remove it from the board.

Putting the new fuse on is a little trickier, you will need to hold the fuse in place with a small enough item that will not get in the way ofthe soldering process such as a cocktail stick or tweezers. Solder either side of the fuse to the board taking care not to make a bridge* with the solder. Give your newly laid fuse a test to be sure you have done it correctly, put the DS lite back together and then your done.

*Bridge - A solid connection made over or around the fuse thus bypassing it.

I hope this helps and I have to say that I take no responsability for any damage that may occur whilst following my tips/ guides.

Regards,

My ds lite won't charge.. the orange light appeared blinked


We had this problem with a brand new DS Lite...turns out it was a bad charger. If you have access to another charger, try that first. Good luck!

Nintendo DS Lite power adaptor disconnection problem


There is a small latch on the connector that may be stuck. Try this. Turn the DS Lite upside down with the charger plug facing away from you. Press down the on the plug gently with your right thumb and with your left hand pull the connect away from the socket. FYI this should be a simple fit! Make sure the connector was not jammed in upside down to start with. It has a clear six sided shape to it!

Nintendo dslite wont turn on.tried charging it wit 3 different charges and it still wont charge


Ensure that you are properly recharging the battery.

1. Insert the small end of the adapter into the external extension connector (labeled "5.2V=IN") on the back of the Nintendo DS Lite, just next to the SLOT 1 Game Card opening.

2. Swing the prongs on the AC adapter until they lock into place, then insert it into a standard (120 volt) outlet.

The plug should be mounted vertically or on a floor outlet (such as a power strip).

3. Once the adapter is properly inserted, the unit will begin to charge (the orange charging light will display).

4. Once the DS Lite is fully charged, the orange charge light will go off.

Check the AC Adapter for damage (such as bent prongs or split wires). If you see damage to the AC Adapter, purchase a replacement from Nintendos Online Store.

Try plugging the AC Adapter into another wall outlet. Its possible the outlet is not working properly and has not been charging the Nintendo DS Lite.

If you are unable to get power to your Nintendo DS Lite, despite trying to properly recharge the unit, then your system will need to be repaired.

Nintendo offers convenient repairs, fast turnaround times and, for all systems repaired, a new one-year manufacturer's warranty.

Ndsl power problem


As Bob (HowlingMad) said, the Ds and Ds Lite will turn off immediately after being turned on if the connection to the top screen is broken.

Check the connections between the screen and Ds, if they look damaged then try replacing the ribbon cable for the top screen (or you may have to replace the whole screen - i'm not sure if it is built together on the Ds Lite). If the connections appear fine then it may be that due to the movement the connector has come out of it's socket/plug (also like Bob said), this is easily fixable if this is the case and would require you to take the casing off your Ds and plug it back in.

Hope this helps

Ds lite ac wall charger


When you first get the DS it will have a bit if charge on it but only a few hours worth. When the DS charges it usally comes up with a orange/red ish light then that goes out about a few hours later when its charged. ad if you want to chek if it is charging correcly turn the DS on whilst it is charging and the little battery simble in the top right corner should show the battery carging.
