Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

Nintendo DS will not stay on.

When I turn my Nintendo DS on the green light only stays lit for roughly 3 seconds and then turns off. If the unit is open the top screen will flash when it's turning off but that is the only action from either of the screens at all. I have switched the battery and there was no change. Any ideas?

Your problem is a blown fuse, either the F1 or F2 fuse. There are 2 solutions

1. Sell it on eBay! this is by far the easiest thing to do. there are many people out there that buy, fix, and then resell DS's as a living, but if you want to give it a try, then go to number 2

2. You can repair one or both of the fuses, which requires skill, a meter, a soldering rod, and a lot of time and patience

if you want to go ahead and try to solder the fuses, then just notify me and I will go into very specific detail for you about this difficult procedure

Ds lite green light is on but both screens are black and no sound


For GBA games the green light is meant to stay on. The orange light will stay on as long as its recharging. It will turn off when its fully recharged or when you unplug it

Generally speaking electronic devices display some sort of battery charge level indicator and even if they're charged will not be harmed if they remain on the power supply cable for longer periods of time. The charge time is 3 hours roughly with the unit turned off.

Baakie,

You turn de DS Lite on, the green light flashes and the unit turned of. Is that correct?

The DS Lite checks some things before he starts-up. One of these things are the screens. the DS sends a signal to it and expect an answer back. When this answer is not received, it shuts down.
The most common problem in these cases is the flatcable of the upper screen.
Question is, did you replaced the housing? If so, you might dammaged the flatcable of the upper screen. If not, the flatcable might be defective because of using the DS Lite a lot (open /close the unit).

So first check the flatcable of the upper screen (google and you will find manuals how to open the DS Lite but be carefull!!!!)

Second, on the mainboard are two fuses (F1 and F2) . Check these! One of them might be defective

Success
