Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
I stopped playing with my NDSL for about a month. When I started playing again, the unit shuts down when I hold down B-button (or sometimes when tapping the A-button) once the unit is turned on. The unit has a supercard lite installed. This shutdown affects both when playing original and back up games. The battery was fully charged when tested and nothing else appeared to be out of the ordinary. Could there be short circuit when the B-button is held down? Solution(s) would be much appreciated. Thanks.
I believe this is a common problem
possibly a manufacturing fault (although I doubt Nintendo would admit to it).
See my other post: "DS Shutting Down"
I have two that have been well looked after and both are doing the same thing.
Both purchased around Dec '06
It's not the battery, so don't post saying that.
I've already tested with a new battery and also put my battery into a friends DS Lite where it worked perfectly.
Definately something to do with the buttons, as you can play stylus based games for ages without any problems. (eg: Mahjong)
Anyone who repairs these might know what the actual problem is. I'm guessing Nintendo just swap the main board or replace the unit. Unfortunately mine are both just out of the 12month warranty.
