Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

DS Lite goes off after a while

The ds powers on sometimes fine, then sometimes not at all, if i press a few buttons it will come back to life. I also found that if i applied pressure to the 'y' button gently at first then increase the pressure i can get the console to power off every time.
I fixed it!, take the console apart and locate the chip on the oposite side of the motherboard to the a-b-x-y buttons, get a soldering iron, make sure the end is spotless and clean with excess solder, wipe the tip clean again, place the tip of the iron on the pins of the chip, then quickly feed your solder into the iron near to the pins, move quickly across all the pins, you'll find it you've done it right the solder will only stick to the pins and none should be joined up, if they do simply clean the iron again, and repeat putting the iron on the pins and add new solder, don't hang around on the pins long, as you'll damage the chip, literally as soon as the solder melts against the iron your done. This solved my power out problem instantly. Email me if you want me to do it for you ploppybaxATbtinternetDOTcom.

My DS Lite wont charge! Help!


Try another charger, yours may be faulty. Alternatively,the battery may need replacing as it is no longer holding charge, these can be obtained very inexpensively from Ebay and you will just need a small cross head screwdriver to remove the cover on the back of the DS lite, then tap the unit in your hand to dislodge and remove the battery.

I am having trouble connecting to Wi-Fi on my DS. It keeps saying that there is no access point.


Make sure have a wireless broadband internet connection available within a short distance of where you are. The DS Lites are kinda slow. You may have to try a few times to get onto the internet. Also, sometimes if you are using a modem that is being used by some other people at the same time (coffee shop etc), it can be painful getting on the internet with the DS Lite. You might also want to power off the DS Lite and even remove the battery for a minute and put the battery back in and power the unit back on. This will reset the DS Lite and and sometimes accelerate the speed at which the DS Lite process.

Dropped DS Lite - rattling


L2 inductor comes out sometimes when dropped and the DS keeps in fixed amber light when charger is plugged in. But you found it fast so good luck. Its pretty sure your DS will work again after soldering the L2 again in its place near the power switch. Just get the battery and charger out before doing anything to avoid a blown fuse also.

DS Lite restarting itself


It maybe that you dont charge it?? The game card may have been damaged not sure... you might have touched the power sliding thing... Try and leave your DS on for a few minutes and see if it turns off.

When you say you've changed the battery do you mean actual batteries or a charger. Because only chargers work
