Screen flashes white then goes black


Sounds like a ribbon cable to the top screen maybe damaged. Upon startup, the ds does a systems check, any kind of failure e.g. a ribbon cable or a faulty screen would cause the console to shut down again. Presuming everything else works charging etc this is most likely to be the problem.

Turn the console on, displays the xbox screen then screen goes off and a red light starts flashing on console, says system error


is this a single red light? if so, it is a E code error. if there are 2, it is a overheating problem. if its 3, it is a general system error which could be a number of things which you need to figure out the secondary error code to narrow down the problem.
to find the secondary error code:
1. after the red lights start flashing, hold down the "controller sync" button.
2. push the "eject" button 4 times and count the amount of red lights that flash. the red lights will begin to flash rapidly. secondary error codes are only 4 numbers. 1 light = 1, 2 lights = 2, 3 lights = 3 and 4 lights = 4.
after you get the code go to this website, and on the right hand side of the screen under "Xbox Repair Guide" select your PRIMARY error code (1,2,3 or 4 slow flashing red lights). then it will ask you to enter your SECONDARY error code, which is the one you discovered in the steps above.
this will give you a very narrowed down idea of what is wrong with your console, and will give us "questions answerers" a better idea on how to help ya out!

Flashing red light on the bottom right of the ring and an error code 73 picture on the screen


Hi,Turn on unit until the red light flashes and the error code(E 73) shows up on the screen. Next insert toothpicks in the back of the console(while unit is running) into the cooling fans, this is to suppose to overheat the console and start two red lights flashing. Turn off console when this happens(unplug all cords from console) and turn the system back on.
This solution will fix your problem for sure. Thank you!

Wont turn on


I'll quote GBATemp here:

symptom:
the ds lite powers up for a brief instant, but then shuts off
potential solution:
disassemble the lower shell and check the connections of upper and lower displays (all three flexible cable connections).

Go to Settings > System Settings > Restore Default Settings
reset your settings, if this does not work and you are running custom firmware follow these steps:
1.- hold the power of switch till screen goes blank
2.- turn psp back on while holding the right bumper
3.- once on the recovery screen go to Advanced > Format Flash 1 and Reset Settings ( you will get a blu screen but dont worry about it and just press O.)

If all fails then just try re flashing your PSP with your current or an update custom firmware.

My DS touch screen flashes once when the power switch is flipped, then turns off.


when the ds turn off right after being powered on, that generally would mean the that the ribbon cable that goes from the top to the bottom is either disconnected, or ripped. thats like a $15-$20 fix or so when u get the parts.
