Most of the time this is caused from slight water damage, or the top screen isn't functioning.
I have seen many of the top screen ribbon cabled that have sent an electric arc across 2 of the pins on the connector which causes the ribbon cable to burn out the connection on those pins resulting in an improper circuit and will flash the screen and shut off. I have repaired many units and would be happy to take a look at yours.
Thanks,

HOW DO I UNFREAZE ABLACK DSI


  • 1 Hold down the "Power" button for at least four seconds to turn the DSi off. If the system powers off, hold the Power button to turn the system back on and reset the operating system. The system should no longer be frozen. If the system doesn't power off, go to the next step.
  • 2 Plug the Nintendo DSi to the power outlet using its AC adapter. Allow the system to charge for two to three hours. A battery may be recharged 500 times or less before being depleted. Once charged, hold down the "Power" button to turn on and reset the operating system. The system should unfreeze itself; if not, follow the next step.
  • 3 Remove the battery from the Nintendo DSi. Unplug the AC adapter from the DSi. Loosen the two screws with a Philips screwdriver on the battery cover. Remove the cover, then remove the battery. Put the old battery back in or replace it with a new battery. Removing and resituating an old battery will sometimes jolt the system and allow it to unlock itself. Replace the battery cover and retighten the screws. Then, try to hold down the "Power" button to unfreeze the system.

    When the power is turned on the screen lights up for approximately 2 seconds then the power shuts right back off..... The batteries are good and even were replaced just as a precaution. What could our...


    What color is the power light when the system shuts off?

      Red: If the power light is red, or flashing red, when the system turns off, then the system's battery needs to be charged.

      Blue: If the power light is blue when the system turns off, then there appears to be a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.

    I understand you have replaced the battery... make sure its a genuine nintendo battery and charge. Also the port could be damaged or the ac adapter... take a good look at both for damages.
    The port should not wiggle on the DS and should be solid.

    Wii turned on, but no video output


    Just spoke to Nintendo Technical support. Seems the rub is in the AC adapter itself.
    Need to power down at both ends of the AC adapter--unplug AC adapter from wall output AS WELL AS from back of Wii.
    Wait at least two minutes to allow any charge in the adapter itself to dissapate. Plug adapter into wall first, then back into the Wii, making sure your peripherals (eg AV receiver, TV, projector if using) are already on.
    Tech support says sometimes you get a partially tripped "fuse" within the AC adapter itself.
    This seems to have worked for now--will let the forum know if further problems

    Battery is fully charged but it still wont power up no lights when plugged in to charge


    Hook up only the ac adapter to the DS to see if it turns on. If it does then we know the ac adapter works. We know the battery got fully charged but the system isn't turning on with the battery that is fully charged up.

    I would say your battery is defective but you won't really know until you fully charge up a known good working battery and test it out.

    Unit not switching on


    Either the system has a blown fuse or it needs the top screen replaced. Either is simple to fix if you are a little bit technically inclined..... You can get replacement screens off ebay for less then $10.00. I have fixed a few of these and its really not to hard....

    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.
