Charger socket broken

My son placed my mobile phone charger in the nintendo ds lite charger socket. A black plastic thing came out and the pins inside the socket seem bent. The nintendo ds charger fits in the socket but the nintendo charger lights no longer come on.

That little black thing goes into the charger so without it, or something to replace it, you can not charge, unless you somehow found a way to take out the battery and charge it outside of the ds. I would highly recommend sending it back to Nintendo or something like that.

My ds lite wont read my ds games


Check the game slot, under a light have a look inside to see if there are any bent or broken pins, if there are any the game slot will need to be replaced, you can take it back to where you bought and ask them about getting it repaired or contact nintendo direct for repairs.

If everything looks ok give the socket a blow inside and hold the ds with cover facing away from you and press down slightly at the top of the game socket, i know this is not a technical repair but i have done it a number of times and it has'nt failed.

Since using mariokart my ds keeps freezing and i havet o turn it off and restart-which means i lose what ive just done. it happens to the other ds as well but only since we put mariokart in it. my son...


My thought on this matter is that the mariokart game cartridge is bending the pins in the game socket (slot1) i maybe wrong but original cartridges have little plastic groves between the copper tracks, if one of these has been damaged some how ie: my son bit the end of his lol!, it could bend one or more of the pins inside the socket and therfore causing your problem, and a new socket is needed. Cheaper than buying a new ds, but requires good soldering skills.
As for the virus theory you never know, but i havent herd of one affecting the ds ....Yet!!

Nintendo ds lite dropped by son. green light comes on but nothing else. no images or sound. is this worth fixing?


um, if this was fixed, the only thing they would keep WOULD be the light, probably not even. no, just buy a used one from places like Amazon, Craigslist, refurb shops, etc.

Nintendo DS Lite Problem


That sounds like your DS lite have a lose circuit part rolling inside so thats why it cant turn on.

You need to open the console, recover the lose part from the inside and resolder it in its place (usually near the power switch, marked as L2). That should fix the problem, if not then you might have blown fuses, lose screens ribbon cables or broken LCD screens. All of these repairs are discussed in other questions here.

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 .
