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?

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.

DS won't turn on


Hi Atticus,

 

I have seen this happen when someone plugs the wrong charging cord up to the DS lite, Is there any chance some one did this to your DS lite.It sounds also as if the battery is not making proper connection.

 

  1. REmove the battery from the compartment
  2. inspect the connector on the battery and where the battery connects to the DSlite.
  3. Wipe thee connections off some way. I suggest some contact cleaner for bith the battery and Battery compartment connections
  4. Try the DS lite again with the battery installed.

I hope this gets you in business  Atticus. Do not Vote until we get it working.  Try this and add a comment to this problem posting. I will answer as soon as I possibly can. Thank you very much for the opportunity to solve your porblem with a DS Lite.

When i power on my ds lite my green light turns on then turns rite bcak off and when I attach the charger it does the same thing.... What/s wrong with it?


Does the orange light come on when you plug it in? If it does, then it is a failure of either the DS's BIOS or its Memory. If the orange light doesn't come on, then the AC adapter is broken.

You can get a new adapter fairly easily, but it isn't worth trying to fix a BIOS or hardware issue.

If it's a fairly new DS, contact Nintendo's Customer Service, and see if they'll replace it.

Ds LITE WILL NOT STAY ON EVEN THOUGH FULLY CHARGED!


Well the reason behind that is if you left it plugged on all night it will take some battery life

My son's DS is frozen. We bought a generic DC


Has probably corrupted the DS's memory, small though it is. Replace the memory to unfreeze. Alternatively get angry and stamp on it. (2nd method worked on my psp, though not advised.)

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.
