Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

Nintendo DS Lite

My daughter left her DS lite by the pool where it got soaked right through, now it won't power up or re-charge. Is there anywhere in Ireland or the UK where I can send this for a repair appraisal & quote? I have left the console in a warm environment to try & dry it out but to no avail, I also tried to open the unit but got as far as getting all the screws out but couldn't figure out the hinge so I didn't go any further.

    Does the oven fix actually work? My ds lite was left in a shopping bag with pies... which I forgot about and they melted and the liquid soaked into my ds lite and my lg chocolate. I don't care about the phone as much as the ds though... I guess I'll try the oven fix- it's not like Nintendo will fix it for free anyway!!!

    My son dropped his DS lite in the sink. The green light comes on but none of the screen will. What should I do? Is the oven solution a joke?

When it comes to the question of what temperature to bake your DS at.... erm... don't.

Hot, dry air is good. Sitting it on top of a radiator may help. Putting it in what we call a hot press (or airing cupboard) in Ireland (the UK) for about 2 days may also help.

If you do bake it (I am not saying it WONT work, just that it may be dangerous overkill) - put the oven on the lowest temperature it does, nothing higher... and yes, remove the battery... (not needed for hot press or rad treatment).

I would normally tell Sonic_881 that he is an ignorant idiot, but he isn't. That is exactly what you should do. But maybe not 130?. I'd say 120? instead.

Take out the battery and place the ds into the oven. Yes i said put it into the oven. set it to about 130 degrees. (like a hot car temprature) there made to withstand that. let it in there for 2 hours or so and then try to start it up. MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS REMOVED BEFORE PLACEING IN THE OVEN OR ELSE THE BATTERY WILL EXPLODE!!! This isnt the 1970s the circuts are made with anti-corrosive metals. Hope this helps.

If your DS is still under warantee you could send it into Nintendo and have them repair it and ship it free. If not you have to pay for shipping and like 60 american dollars. Much better than buying a new one. http://www.nintendo-europe.com/ I'd give you more detailed instructions on how to set up the repair but I live in the USA and the link to the Nintendo Europe site is the best I can do.

You need certain tools to open it up. Plus, the motherboard, circuit board is getting corroded. The best thing would be for you to buy a new one. It would be too much for you to repair.

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.

Nintendo DS will NOT charge


My guess is that the problem resides in the charger. You can buy a dual use charger for the DS and DS Lite at GameStop for relatively cheap.

Nintendo DS Lite power adaptor disconnection problem


There is a small latch on the connector that may be stuck. Try this. Turn the DS Lite upside down with the charger plug facing away from you. Press down the on the plug gently with your right thumb and with your left hand pull the connect away from the socket. FYI this should be a simple fit! Make sure the connector was not jammed in upside down to start with. It has a clear six sided shape to it!

Nintendo ds lite


Hi,
you,ll pay more to have it repaired than to replace it.
I,d suggest buy a new one.
Keep the old one for spares.
Once motherboards/Circuitboards get soaked, it damages the boards/components/solder joints.
