Re: My nintendo ds lite stopped working but does charge
Just fixed the same symptom on one today this is my scenario
been dropped and landed on the same edge of the power switch thus breaking the base of the power switch open it up and look at the metal sheath that goes around the power switch where it solders to the circuit board could have pulled off the board (need experience to tell) this needs to be soldered to the board to complete the curcuit. if not that just below the power switch you will see a (or not see) a boney color capasitor about 3mmx3mmx5mm fallen off its mounts resolder and enjoy if helps give us a tick to help others

the DS might be wrong try charging it overnight if this dose not work than the battery pack in your ds is spoiled this happens over time wile you have your ds if charging dose not work go to a game stop and have them change the battery pack. Hope this helps!
My kids did the same thing. What I did to get it to work was to push back on the top and hold it turn it on. If it comes on then turns off after you let it go get 2 rubber bands and put the 1st. one on the top left down to the bottom right. The 2nd. one goes from the top right right to the bottom left. Then keep turning it on while moving the top to find the sweet spot.
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.
never do things like that.did your ds lite come with a ac adapter?did you check in the box?if not call the nintendo experts 1-800-255-3700.they will either take it out and send it back to you or give you a new one (and u must pay if they cannot take it out)
