Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
DS Lite is only 2 months old and today it stopped working. Green power light only stays on for a second when turned on - and only when it is plugged in. When you plug it in, the red charging light stays on for a second then goes out. When it is NOT plugged in, no lights come on, even when you turn it on. It was not dropped or damaged. It worked last night but this morning it does not. Thanks, Janet
I think that this problem is caused by either f1 or f2 fuses being blown. The other problem mentioned where the green light comes on for a second then goes out again is usually caused by the cable connecting the top screen to the motherboard, it is either broken, damaged or incorrectly seated.

Most of the time its the top screen needs to be replaced since if you over extend the top screen flip by grabbing or pulling the connector can become faulty. Replace the top screen will probalble fix it.

I had the same problem. In my case, it was exposed to a tub of soapy liquid. I tried replacing the battery (didn't work) and tried tinkering around with it. I wound up just throwing it away. Still, there might be a chance that it can be fixed... maybe...

Sounds like F2 on the bottom board has blown, I'd contact the retailer and if they're no use go direct to Nintendo, at 2 months old it should still be under warranty so I wouldn't want to touch it with a screwdriver.

It could be the power cord that is the problem, see if you can go to a shop or if you have a friend with one, see if you can borrow their cord to see if it works hope you find a sulution :)

I have seen this happen when someone plugs the wrong charging cord up to the DS lite, Is there any chance some one did this to your DS lite.It sounds also as if the battery is not making proper connection.
