You may need a replacement battery. Check ebay for replacement DS batteries.

I plug in my ds lite charger the light comes on for a split second then goes off? any ideas?

Try shaking the DS, not too hard and if you hear something loose inside then you should send it in to Nintendo. Also, could be just a faulty charger cable. Try another cable see if it works.

My ds lite won't charge.. the orange light appeared blinked

We had this problem with a brand new DS Lite...turns out it was a bad charger. If you have access to another charger, try that first. Good luck!

My sons nintendo ds wont turn on, when we charge it, turn power on , the green light comes on and bottom screen blinks for a split second then goes dead.. Is this fixable , if so what do i try??? thanks

yes it is fixable sounds like your fault is with the top screen are the hinges ok has it been dropped.

most green light and screen flashes point to a defective screen or connection on the mother board or sometimes fuses. id start with checking the motherboard connection if its ok check the fuses if all is ok buy a new top screen and replace it.

DS lite green light comes on, top screen flash,then switches off

Check L2 near the power switch on your DS mobo. That part usually get loosen or taken out when you drop your DS. And usually you can recover it when dismantling your DS.

Wont turn on

I'll quote GBATemp here:

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).

My nintendo ds lite stopped working but does charge

The LCD screens may be dead. Ask a mechanic to change the screens.

Or maybe it is about the hinge. the cables may be damaged.

Did you spill anything on the DS??

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 then all you have to do is go buy a new charger...hope this helps.

I have a major problem!!!!!!!! Please try to help!!!!!!!!:((

you will need to replace the upper lcd screen, when the power light came off it caused the top and bottom shell to shift back and forth causing the lcd ribbon to become damaged, the flash you see is the power from the botton trying to make it's way to the top, send to ebay ed-kar-3 for $38.00 to fix

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.
