    Check to make sure that the White and Black cables are securely seated into there connections. Don't close up your DS until it powers and stays on. Don't get frustrated as this may take a long time to get the cables seated just right.

My ds lite just switched off and it was charged

Hi, so if you try switching on the ds lite, nothing at all happens ??
Does the green light flash even if it is for like a split second.If it does then it is more likely top be a blown fuse. If 1 of your screens flicker also, this could be your problem as the ds will not start up with a broken screen. Please advise

Hello there,
Unfortunately, something may be shorting out at the hinges causing the DS to shut down automatically. It is probably a ribbon cable damage. Try contacting Nintendo to try to get it fixed.
I hope this helps! Thumbs up are always welcome.

My ds lite completly shut off when i played it and now it wont come back on at all even with a new battery and new charger

Does the power light flick on then straight off again? That normally means that there's either a screen fault or a fuse fault. If the screens flicker it's more than likely the fuse IIRC.

My son's DS is frozen. We bought a generic DC

Has probably corrupted the DS's memory, small though it is. Replace the memory to unfreeze. Alternatively get angry and stamp on it. (2nd method worked on my psp, though not advised.)
