Ds lite doesn't switch on, yellow light flashes once

My Son and my Dad both have a ds lite each with the same problem, they switched off, we assumed they needed charging but when we plug the charger inthe yellow light flashes foffr a split second,almost as if the battery is fully charged, we have swapped the battery and tried chargers. wehave been told it may be a fuse but we are a little reluctant to open them up without knowing if it would be a fuse. Does this sound like it could be the fuse or could it be something else? How easy is the fuse to locate and replace?

As far as I know there is no fuse in the DS. Try booting them without any games in them. Also, try checking the batteries for water damage. There should be a small white label about 1/8th inch square on it. If the label has pink dots then there was no water damage however if there arent any dots its very possible that it could be water damage

DS Lite Will Not Power On


There is a possibility that your battery has developed a short circuit or is so bad that it pulls down the charge voltage on the charger. You are therefore left starved of a power and therefore no function.
If possible, disconnect the battery and run the DS on the charger power alone. If the DS starts to work, I suggest replacing the battery.

My ds lite just switched off and it was charged


Hi, so if you try switching on the ds lite, nothing at all happens ??
Does the green light flash even if it is for like a split second.If it does then it is more likely top be a blown fuse. If 1 of your screens flicker also, this could be your problem as the ds will not start up with a broken screen. Please advise

Pushing the power switch once more puts the green light out. Bruce

NDS lite has the power(green lite flashes), but screens wont lit


Hi,

When you switch the DS lite on you should notice that one of the screens flashes... if thats correct then the screen that doesn't flash is the one that will need replacing which, I would assume is the upper screen as judging by what you say has a damaged ribbon.

Regards,

Unit not powering up


You have a defective LCD screen that makes a short circuit (thats the flashing green led)
Mostly the upper LCD screen is the problem.
You cab replace the LCD screen by buying one (ebay) and use a manual found on youtube but you need to have the skills. If not, please find someone that can repair it for you
