    We actually have the same issue. This happened after the unit was about 8 months old and the unit was left on accidentally and the battery drained. We've tried re-charging it, using a different charger, even trying a new battery and it still doesn't work. When trying to charge it, the charging light comes on for a couple of seconds and then goes off. The unit will not power up at all.

    Kids were playing and it just shut off. Would only go to orange light when tried turning it on while on the charger, but after taking battery out and checking amps, no lights at all. Any help out there?

    I have exactly the same problem with a unit 18 months old, have tried the battery and charger on another console and they both work fine. I would appreciate any other suggestions.

    I found out it is the fuse that has blown on my ds,unfortunately I jumped in 2 quick and have had 2 pay £35 for someone 2 repair it when I could have bought a fuse from e bay for £2.98 and my uncle could have fixed it,so if u know of anyone who knows what they r doing then its cheap enough 2 fix yourself

The cartilage reader had broke on my Nintendo 64 console. What can I do about this problem then.

Well the same thing had happened with me not too long ago. You could buy a new N64 console then from Luke games and just games or DK oldies. Make sure you get the 4.5 mm game bit tool to open the console up and you can change the cartilage reader from the new one to the old one like I did. Or you could get your old N64 console fixed somewhere then or find someone to fix it. Just buy a new one like I did.
