Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

DS light will not turn on

I have a one year old DS Light and it will not turn on. One day it was working fine the next nothing. I tried to charge it and as I was inserting the power cord the orange charge indicator turned on for about a second and then turned off. Regardless I let it charge overnight with no change. I purchased a new battery and no change in the above. I took a known working battery out of another DS Light and still no change. Any suggestions. I have 2 GBA SP's, 1 GBA DS and 2 GBA DS Light and this is the first problem I have had.

The orange light was on, charged it up and everything working fine then just went off. When turning it back on again the green light goes on, the screen flashes for a split second then nothing? It is...

you probably have a dead battery and it will need to be replaced. you can buy one on eBay and do it yourself or you can bring it to a repair store to get it fixed

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

Nintendo DS Lite shuts off randomly.

I'm a certified electronic technician and I must say NDS internal screen ribbon connectors are junk! Basically The ribbon connectors are so sketchy that it is not recommended to ever unclip them, if you do there's a good chance it will ever work again once reconnected due to how the connector pins slightly crimp into the ribbon pads.

When a NDS boots up the the onboard firmware constantly tests the LCD screen connections, if there is a break in the connection the NDS will shut down. If your NDS randomly turns off, fails to boot, or powers of when you move the hinge it is most likely the ribbon (flex film) or ribbon connector has failed. The only option to to replace the affected LCD screen.

Ds light not coming on and charger not working

When I hooked up my DS with the charger the orange light would flicker for only a few seconds then turn off.

I found out that if you KEEP THE DS ON WHILE HOOKED UP the DS will charge. Although, because you are playing/DS is on the charging will go extremely slowly.

Best option, and what I did, was was just return/exchange it. I just did that today.

Won't power up-flash of light on bottom screen then nothing

if yr DS is less than one year old, call nintendo and ask for an advanced replacement.... they are good about it and will explain the whole process to you....the number is 1.800.255.3700.... i think it is option three for DS problems, then zero, and the will set it up.... ive had it done like three times....
