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?
Re: Nintendo DS Lite screen is not working properly
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.

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
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.
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.
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 .
