Question about Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP Console

Open Question

When I plug the charger into the ds, an orange light flashes once then turns off.

Not sure of how long ago the ds was charged. Does it take a long time to charge if it hasn't been charged for a long period of time?

SOURCE: ds nintendo will not charge light flashing and think it is the connection on the ds as i have tried other chargers in it

After a bit of trial and error I found that one of two internal fuses had blown. You can bridge the fuse with a bit of solder to fix it but this means if the same thing happens again there will be no fuse to protect your DS. My own solution is to get a friend to charge my battery on their DS while I wait for a desktop battery charger to arrive from Hong Kong. I found the battery charger on ebay. I suggest you charge your battery in a friend's DS and put it back in your own to see if you DS works. If it does then you have the same problem as me.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: nintendo ds lite will not turn on, when trying to charge the orange lite blinks once.

after researching this for a while, i heard that it is because the fuses have blown inside the ds. you can try to fix it but it is risky.
good luck!

If the console has overcharged or has been used for long periods of time or could just be fluke, chances are the fuses are blown on the main motherboard try this link, this guy fixed my ds and i had the exact same problems as you guys have

You can try buying another battery, or by buying a charging station that could just charge your battery (incase its the charger port on the ds thats broken).

My DS lite wont charge - the orange light flashes once, then nothing.


Hi, it might be the fuse.
Does the DS turn fail to turn on?
Does the charge light just flash briefly when you plug in charger?
If so it will be the fuse.
If the console it out of warranty, maybe you or someone you know can fix it.

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.

When plugging power to the DS lite the led flashes orange once


I think if the orange light flashes once it means it has a full charge.

Ds lite suddenly stopped working


The orange light goes off when the battery has been charged to its highest capacity. After every charge, the batteries capacity is decreased. Get a new battery, that should do it.

Ds is plugged into charger. But when i try to


What is the orange charging light doing? If it is just flashing on, or only staying on or a minuet, that means you need a new battery. The orange light foes on when the battery has been charged to its maximum capacity. After each charge, the capacity is decreased. So if the orange light is on for only a short time, get a new battery.

Nintendo ds wont charge


cheekiemunke,

First of all, your DS Lite is charging both ways.....with power on and without power on.
You have for almost 99% sure a blown fuse F2 on the systemboard.
If you can solder you can try to replace it with a new one but be adviced, it is tricky if you don't have the skills with soldering SMD components and it can send your DS lite to the trash.
So my advice is find someone that repair DS Lites or order a fuse on eBay and try it yourself.

Regards

John
