Hi my nintendo ds lite battery is dead and my charger is lost is there any other way to charge it without a charger?


You can try charging your DS lite using a phone charger. In order for this to work the charger must
  • Output around 5.2 volts
  • The end of the plug must look like the second plug from the left in this picture
When plugging this cord into your DS lite do NOT force it in. If you push to hard it may break the DS lite.

Unable to charge battery


Hi,

Well, yes there is a solution to this, but it still will cost you some bucks.

This sounds like you have a bad battery.

Usually when you have a bad charger, the same things happen that you describe. Only difference is your system won't come back on if the battery has fully died.

In your situation the battery does come on, but not for long. Which leads me to believe your charger is still working, however your defective battery is only being charged to a certain level.

I would recommend you use another battery with the same charger and see if you get the same results.

IF YOU DO..

Try a different charger.

If you're still experiencing the same results with a new charger and battery, then I'm afraid the problem is your charging port. If so, you would have to have this system repaired.


I wish you luck and hope I helped!


- Great

Ds lite charging lite comes on but when i press power button nothing happens


Are you leaving the DS charge until the light comes off? Remember that there are two likes too, one for charging and one for power. If you're just charging for some random period of time (lets say... One hour) then your Battery isn't going to be fully charged. The best way to ensure that your DS Lite is charged is to leave it charge until the charge light turns off. You can play your DS Lite while you are charging (I do it all the time), but it just means that you're just running off of the outlet.

A good test is to charge it fully (until the charge light comes off), unplug the charger cord (Make sure it's secured tightly to your DS while charging), then play for a little bit, your light should be a normal color (green).

If you cannot even play by using the outlet, then you need to
find a charger cord that actually works (You may need to send in the charger for replacement). If the same thing happens with 2 different batteries (assuming that you have two official Nintendo batteries).

TIP: Also run your fingers across the Charger cord. You're going to get a slight friction burn from the rubber, but you're going to get all of the kinks out of the wire in the cord. My charger cord had a similar problem (did not charge all the way, only charged until I moved the DS) but when I ran my fingers across it (pinching) it worked again.

Also check the pins in both charger cords, charging will not work if one pin is missing, nor if any are bent.

DS Lite battery will not charge.


Unfortunately, online is the only place to get the triwing screwdriver. There are several Canadian sites to get them (which I did), if that is your concern, otherwise ebay.
Please examine you power jack on the console. Maybe there is something broken or loose in there. Possibly, the power pin lifted off the board and may need to be resoldered. Opening up the unit is your only choice. I have opened up several units.

Ds light not coming on and charger not working


When I hooked up my DS with the charger the orange light would flicker for only a few seconds then turn off.

I found out that if you KEEP THE DS ON WHILE HOOKED UP the DS will charge. Although, because you are playing/DS is on the charging will go extremely slowly.

Best option, and what I did, was was just return/exchange it. I just did that today.
