If the system wont actually charge it could be because of a few things.
Either something went into the power port on the system that was not supposed to ( where you plug in the charger )
Internal wire damage ( dropped system )
Contact nintendo and talk to them about getting a repair set up, if your within your one year warranty that type of a repair is covered. If you have had it for more than a year then they have a standard repair fee of about 75 dollars not including shipping/tax in ur area

Does not charge


This is a design flaw!! Apparently if the DS Lite has been dropped, this damages the charging mechanism. This can only be repaired by Nintendo. However, even when you get the DS Lite back, there is no guarantee that the DS Lite will work for more than 2 weeks to a month, as this has been with my case. You may want to look into purchasing the DSi, as I have not found this to be a common problem with these new game systems (but, do your own research). Don't bother buying a new battery. It won't help!

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!

The light stays red when charging. will not take


You will need to try another battery in the ds, if it charges then you will need to purchase a new one.
Also check the ds charger itself in another ds to ensure that it is working.

Why does my ds lite not power up


Does the battery light flash? If red: CHARGE! If doesn't charge, a new battery is needed If green: New battery is needed
Batteries lose their charge holding capabilities after being used for a long period of time. DS lite batteries have a price range from around 4-20 dollars depending on the web site/store and the quality, some can go longer without charging, others can be charged a higher number of times so you won't have to buy them all the time.
If the light doesn't flash: I am not sure. I think a new battery should fix that too

Ds Lite Will not charge for longer than 5-10 seconds


It might be a defective battery. Try putting the new battery in a DS lite that you know works. If the other DS works with its own battery, but doesn't with with your battery, then your battery is most likely defective.

Or you could take the battery out of a good DS that turns on and can do everything, and put it in your DS. If your DS still doesn't work, even with the other DS's battery, then your DS might be broken.

Ds lite ac wall charger


When you first get the DS it will have a bit if charge on it but only a few hours worth. When the DS charges it usally comes up with a orange/red ish light then that goes out about a few hours later when its charged. ad if you want to chek if it is charging correcly turn the DS on whilst it is charging and the little battery simble in the top right corner should show the battery carging.

Nintendo DS Lite - Not charging


sounds like you've blown a fuse inside the ds itself. Check on the underside of your console and check if it says "5.2v in" adjacent to your charger port if it does then the uk charger is safe to use. But the fact remains you may of blown a fuse. There are two fuses in the ds and are very small they can be repaired easily if you have any soldering skills.
