Sounds like a hardware problem. If you got it for xmas then it's still under warranty.

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

Ds lite- green light comes on then screen flickers for one second then turns its self off whats wrong ?


Hi there, this is usually a sign that one of the screens has become faulty.

When you switch the DS console on, make a note as to which screen is the one that flashes. If the top screen flashes just before it turns off then the bottom screen is faulty.

If the bottom screen flashes then it is the top screen that is faulty.

Whichever screen it is that is faulty they can be bought quite cheaply online from places like amazon and ebay.

To actually replace the screen does require some good technical knowledge but usually there are some very good guides available just by doing an internet search.

I hope this information helps you and thank you for using FixYa

My nintendo ds shuts off everytime i turn it on


Hi,

Judging by you saying that it shuts off would suggests that it has power so the battery and charge is not an issue.

When you switch on the ds you should see one of the screens flicker on just before it powers back down.Which ever screen does not flash had a problem, the connection haseither come loose or the screen has developed a fault, in which caseyou will either have to send it away if its under warranty, take it toa local repair shop or replace the screen yourself.

Firstly whenyou take the ds apart disconnect the relevent screen and thenre-attatch it just to be sure if its the connection or not, if are-connection works then your sorted... if not you will have to replacethe screen.

The screens, both top and bottom can be bought fromebay. If its your top screen you will also have to do a bit ofsoldering as the speakers will need to be removed from the old screenand soldered onto the new one. If its the bottom screen you will needto carefully seperate the touch screen from the lcd screen2_bing.gif.

If you need any more help with changing the screens then give me a message and I will do my best to help you out.

If none of the screens flicker then get back to me and I will help you figure out whats going on.

Ds touch screen and main screen not working - connectors broken


if you would have sent it to me first I would have replaced the case for you and you wouldn't have had these problems, but I can still help you out. I have a white nintendo DS lite in stock that I had to replace the bottom lcd display in. I will ship to you for $90 and if you are feeling adventurous send me your parts and I will take off $10 since I have no clue what is broken and what is not, but to me it sounds like the bottom lcd, touch screen , and circuit board are trash.
Thanks

DS Powering On


Hi, if the bottom screen briefly comes on with a white screen. There is a issue with the top screen, it is either the top screen itself or if there is damage to the hinge it will more than likely be the cheaper option the ribbon cable that threads though the hinge to the top screens PCB board.

Ds not lite


Replace the connector cord between two screens. You can buy new ones from DX Deal extreme! Carefully remove through hinge and attach securely.

Be careful not to break the fine wires connecting. Have to twist the connector cord in the correct way to make it go through hinge without damaging.

Good luck cos it is a fiddly job.
