What is the orange charging light doing? If it is just flashing on, or only staying on or a minuet, that means you need a new battery. The orange light foes on when the battery has been charged to its maximum capacity. After each charge, the capacity is decreased. So if the orange light is on for only a short time, get a new battery.

Gently wiggle the charger from side to side, not too much incase you break the pins. it may be a little stiff to start with. Apply a fair amount of force and have lots of patience : )

Hope this helps,

Try this if you haven't yet.Take the battery out,read the voltage with a meter,If low your charger is not working.Also if no meter try reinstall batery.Good Luck. DS's are unpredictable,you could not touch it for another month and it will work.

SOURCE: DS Lite turns on for a brief second. Then turns

This could be two things first try a new battery.You can get on ebay for $2 dollars.If that doesn't fix the problem then it should be a fuse. To get to the fuses you will need to take it apart. If you have a warranty don't send it back.There are a lot of ds lite repair videos on utube. To help you find the fuses.

SOURCE: nintendo ds won't turn on.when charger plugged in

Your problem isn't with the screen it is with the fuses.

your fuse or fuses are dead. however, it is fixable, but it is extremely difficult.

1. if you don't have the time or the means or the wants to solder it, then sell it on ebay and you can get a fairly good price and someone else will fix it

2. if you do want to go through with this then you will need a meter, a soldering iron, and a lot of time and patience.

If you are interested, just notify me

Ds light green,dim green, amber then off when power is turned on


Sounds like you need to send it in for repair. I had sent my console to VideoGame911.com and they repaired mine at a great cost and got it back at the end of the week. Give them a try, they are cheaper than a manufacturer. Good luck!

Orange light flashes and wont charge


This usually means you either might have a faulty charger cable. Or it is connected to the wi-fi. I am guessing it is off. Try letting the ds run completely out of battery to the point where you cannot even turn it on. Then plug the cable into the ds first. Then plug the charger into a different outlet. Hopefully this solves your problem. Good luck :)

You can try buying another battery, or by buying a charging station that could just charge your battery (incase its the charger port on the ds thats broken).

When The DS Boots the top screen flashes for a second and the whole unit turns off.


You should try charging the DS system if the light is red. Make sure both the outlet you plug the DS into, the charger, and the DS charging port are not damaged. If this does not work, try visiting this website: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/index.jsp or calling Nintendo Customer Service at 1-800-255-3700.

Hope this helped,

Do any screens flash?

I would say its a fuse / grounding out / or battery is destroyed.


If you can, try a different battery.. Has your battery and/or DS had any previous water damage?

Nintendo DS Lite - does not charge


i would suggest trying to find what the issue is, if you know anyone who has a different charger, try it on your daughter's ds. if it still doesn't work, it's a DS problem...if it's under warranty, go to whatever store you bought it at and have them fix or replace it. If you try the different charger and it DOES work, then the only problem is the charger...so then all you have to do is go buy a new charger...hope this helps.

Blank Upper and Lower Screens


Try plugging it into the charger and turning it on. If it still doesn't work, you probably broke the internatl port for the charger which is why it's turning on then back off right away because it's not able to charge anymore. If you stil have your warrenty, I would try to take it back.

Power problems with DS Lite


Really sounds like a dead battery. The DS will not work if the battery is bad even when it's plugged in. You get the quick flash of the power light and that's it.
