Question about Nintendo DS Lite

1 Answer

My sons ds lite got dropped (not by him) and now nothing happens.

When you try to turn the power on there is none of the normal slight resistance and nothing happens. I thought a wire may have come loose so opened it up and have found close to the power switch a small octaganol 100 chip (?) that has come off. Can it be re-attached and is this likely to be the problem. Thanks inanticipation of your help.

With some soldering skills, this could be repaired. Other than that, I would say that it's time for a new one.

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!

My son's ds lite is melted from a short??? won't work at all


perhaps should be a problem with the Ds power supply with overvolt...try to change and test it with another Ds power supply... You said that the ds system is melted...If I were you I would open the Ds to search for damaged parts and try to restore it...or you can buy parts on ebay:

Dropped Nintendo DS Lite on wooden floor - NOW IT WON'T TURN ON


remove the battery for a few mins and put it back in and try again?
Its a long shot but theres very little you can do with this, the insides of the DS lite are REALLY small and the only replaceable parts are the screen, buttons, etc. and you cant really fix damage to the board or chips inside which presumably is whats happened here if you get zero response.
Sorry.. :(

Screens wont come on


Nicham,

If I understand it correctly, the screens are still dark.
Small question....was it dropped on the floor?

"Power" button not working


I think it can be fixed but by an expert not by sombody at home, if you need experts in that area you can look for them in fixya

I think it's a wire problem and shouldn't be to hard to fix it also should be cheap.

Is this a terminal problem


It could be that your son dropped the DS. The screens are probbably not dead, but a connection may have come loose. The screen connection cables, especially the LCD power ribbon, are sensitive. You can try disassembling the DS by following any of numerous disassembly toutorials (search Google!) and make sure everything looks normal, that is, all the ribbions are tight.
