Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

DS lite won't turn on?

When I plug the DS in to the AC adapter, the red light comes on as though it is charging. But even after charging all day, when I disconnect from the adapter and turn the DS on, the green light comes on for about 3 seconds and the screen turns on for one second. Then turns off. It's as if there is no charge? Should I buy a replacement battery or spend the money to send for it to get repaired?

BROOKSTONE HDMI PROJECTOR 801143 DOES NOT CHARGE


The Brookstone manual claims it will fully charge after 3-5 hours, but it takes much longer then that. Mine does not indicate green light, but it seems it stops blinking red when its fully charged. After that it run on power directly from the ac-adapter.

If you keep it connected to the AC-adapter after it have stopped blinking red (do not disconnect it at all), it will start to run on the adapter and will not turn off. You will feel the AC-adapter gets hot while its running, something it does not while regular charging.

If it still dont stop blinking red after having it connected to power for 3 days, your AC-adapter is probably faulty. This happened to me, and after allot of research I found this replacement from a US seller on ebay (only five dollars included shipping).

My battery light flashes red then green then red and so on even though its plugged in. The power indicator says I'm fully charged. What doed the flashing red and geen mean?


Try removing the battery and just use the AC adapter. If the laptop functions normally then you have a problem with the battery charging circuit . Either your battery is defective or the circuit that charges it is defective ( meaning the system board).

Here are some steps you could take to try and solve the problem
  • Make sure all parts of the adapter are plugged tightly together.
  • Try plugging the adapter into a different wall socket.
  • Try the adapter with another computer to make sure that your laptop is not the actual problem.
If the adapter continues to fail after all previous steps are taken you may just need to buy a new adapter. Not to worry though as brand new adapters can be found for next to nothing on websites like Amazon.com or Ebay.com

Hello there. You may need to replace your battery pack, as leaving it charged for over 4 hours can lead to "overcharging" a condition which can dramatically shorten your battery packs lifespan and charge retention.
Also, be sure to charge your console while the device is turned off. Although you may charge it while it is powered on, it will take longer.
As stated, be sure not to leave the system on charge for more than 5-6 hours, as this can damage the battery and is liable to cause battery leakage, burning, or overheating.

Battery life is largely dependent on the game being played - some games can give you up to 10 hours of battery life, though the real-world estimate is really more like 5-7 hours of constant use before you'll need to recharge.

I hope this helps you. -

Frankie.

Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.


If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a 'power reset' of the notebook.

  1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
  2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
  3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
  4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
  5. Normally power on the notebook.
  6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
  7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
    If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.

Ahh, the notorious battery problem. I had (2) units that would not charge or turn on (red light just kept flashing).

The units work fine now when plugged in (AC or DC adapter of course !). Still looking for a replacement battery...

Nintendo dslite wont turn on.tried charging it wit 3 different charges and it still wont charge


Ensure that you are properly recharging the battery.

1. Insert the small end of the adapter into the external extension connector (labeled "5.2V=IN") on the back of the Nintendo DS Lite, just next to the SLOT 1 Game Card opening.

2. Swing the prongs on the AC adapter until they lock into place, then insert it into a standard (120 volt) outlet.

The plug should be mounted vertically or on a floor outlet (such as a power strip).

3. Once the adapter is properly inserted, the unit will begin to charge (the orange charging light will display).

4. Once the DS Lite is fully charged, the orange charge light will go off.

Check the AC Adapter for damage (such as bent prongs or split wires). If you see damage to the AC Adapter, purchase a replacement from Nintendos Online Store.

Try plugging the AC Adapter into another wall outlet. Its possible the outlet is not working properly and has not been charging the Nintendo DS Lite.

If you are unable to get power to your Nintendo DS Lite, despite trying to properly recharge the unit, then your system will need to be repaired.

Nintendo offers convenient repairs, fast turnaround times and, for all systems repaired, a new one-year manufacturer's warranty.

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.
