Re: troubleshooting my ds

You should look for a repair shop because opening your ds on your own may void the warranty

Ds goes black and white

Hi Tristan,
Does the ds still turn on, which hinge is broken? Left,right or both as you open the lid?(very carefully though if you damage the ribbon cable for the top screen it'll need replacing for sure.

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!

My touch pad worked fine last night, but now it doesn't! Help!

well, first you should see if it needs charging. Then turn on the ds and touch the little ds on the bottom of the screen. Go to the calibrate or the thing that is on the right side of the person. Try thr test and dont stop it until its over. Try touching the screen again but if that doesnt work call nintendo which the number is in the manual or find it at See if that works.

DS is stuck in charge mode when plugged in.

Your DS may have a problem reading the battery gauge, and the DS will only let the charger do its thing for a period of time. Then, if it is still connected, it may burst more charge in. This means that your DS is acting up, and your battery may have a rare (and not harmful to the DS) malfunction.

Ds power problems

mmm not exactly because if you plug the charger back in it will go orange again, so my guess would be that the ds doesnt stay charged for a long while, you can charge the ds properly when it is shut off but it does needs to be charging at least 8 to 10, you want it to last longer, play a game till the power goes just dnt save anything incase the ds shuts down while saving, otherwise it can corrupt the game and possibly the ds

DS lite not working

there may be some kind of damage in the ds as i had the same problem it may have been shaken around or dropped or even faulty the best thing to do is send it back if you dont have the warranty then go to a gaming store most have a collection day where someone comes to pick up broken ds and takes them its free except tfor the repair.Its best if you dont fiddle around with it a it will become more damaged
