Nintendo DS Lite screen is not working properly

The Nintendo DS Lite was plugged in for a while to charge. We forgot to unplug it when it was done charging.Now the screen is like a 70's tv. A lot of colored lines and we can hear the music but no screen. Can you help?

    Just to let you know just because you left in on the charger doesn't mean that was the cause if it. My daughter ds is left on the charger when not being played with no problems.

    Sounds like it might have been dropped and put back to hide that fact. I could be wrong but are you using any type of mods to your Example: R4 or iTouch ds, etc., etc....

I leave my DS on the charger all the time with no problems. You are going to get a lot of people telling you this, so be ready.

Anyway, way the DS dropped, stepped on, or had something spilled on it? That could very well be the cause.

Another problem could be the charger. Look and see if the charger is torn, has something on it ( Juice, sticky stuff, or something that really shouldn't be there), and by something on the charger, I mean something on the head of the charger that you plug into the DS. The wire could be torn up and frayed too.

You could also get the DS refurbished. This should correct the problem. Refurbishing is cheaper than buying a new one, refurbishing a DS costs anywhere from $70 to around $90.

Hope it helps~

Ds lite comes on for a sec when charger plugged in then it goes of unit does not come on or charge


Hi three things come to mind, you dropped it but usually they wont admit it (dont go mad they usually all break when you do) if it rattles the capacitor under the power switch just fell off (common you have to solder it back on) if not that you replaced the bottom screen and forgot to insulate the metal of the back of the screen against the circuit board and blew either the f1 or f2 fuses (Replace them if you did) last thing i wont go into if you havent pulled it apart if you have reply and i will tell you Good Luck

DS lite was dropped and now it won't work.


They usually don't work properly after they've been dropped. Nintendo carries a 1 year warranty, they will replace it for free (but not if you've used cheat codes (Action Reply), etc). I wouldn't mention that you've dropped it when calling them.

NINTENDO DS LITE WON'T CHARGE OR POWER ON


Each time you charge your battery, the charge capacity is decreased. After a large amount of charges, the capacity is decreased to an amount only enough to turn on a/the screen(s) for a second. Try getting a new battery.

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.

Ok, then is either that both chargers you used are faulty, or more likely there is a contact in the power charger socket on your nintendo. check it it is moving or not well in place, eventually you will need to chaeck the contacts of charger socket on board inside the DS, the contact must be near there. Until you do not fix it, connecting the charger may be dangerous for your DS .
