Question about Nintendo DS Console

1 Answer

I have similar problem. I would like to know how to solve it.

My Nintendo DS is in great condition, except that it won't start up. When I turn it on, the green light comes on like normal, and you can tell it has power, but the top screen just flashes white for a fraction of a second, and then goes out, and the device turns off again. THIS IS NOT A BATTERY PROBLEM, I have used 3 different batteries (2 of which I know for sure are in working order). Anyone got any ideas for me? I'm betting it's some sort of wiring problem, but I just have no idea where to start. yes please i need help in fixing this problem as i have a similar issue. it flickers on the screen for one sec and off it goes again. Can you help me please? thanks

No, this is not a battery problem. This is not a top screen problem as well. This is a bottom lcd problem.


The top screen flickers when the bottom lcd is messed up and the bottom screen flickers when its the top lcds problem.

Follow the links below. You can purchase a bottom LCD for cheap and there are instructions on how to change it.

When i turn it on it dosen't do any thing


Well Im not goana be an ******* and suggest you charge it, Im sure you've tried that already. If it just won't turn on, not even a flicker, you have a internal problem, that an ordinary person can't solve. you might have to send it in to nintendo.

Hi my nintendo ds lite wn't turn. do i require to charage my ds,or no?


A Nintendo DS console will indeed need charging. If your light appears as red, yes, you will need to purchase a Nintendo DS charger. All and every kinds of Nintendo DS's require charging. Nintendo DS, Nintendo DS Lite, Nintendo DSi, Nintendo DSi XL, and Nintendo 3DS. You will have to insert the wall outlet side of the plug into the wall, and the other smaller side into the DS, DSi, or 3DS.

If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to contact me!

I have a ds lite and I can not save the start up settings,date,time.


Sounds to me like a possible battery problem... See if you can borrow a battery off someone else to see if it solves the problm, if it does get your self a new battery from ebay or similar.

Let me know what you find out and I will help you further if need be.

Nintendo DS Lite, Dim Green Light, Brigher Green Light then off


Hi,

If the green light reacts as you state then the chances are the fuses are fine.

Again, with the reaction of the green light being as you stated i'm going to assume you have a problem with one of your screens, tell me... when the green light comes on does one of the screens flash? If it does then we have found the answer...

The screen that doesnt flash is the one with the problem, you can try taking the DS lite apart and re-connecting the screens ribon to see if that sorts it, if it doesnt then im afraid you will have to buy a new screen. These can befound on ebay for a reasonable price.

I have written some guides on how to change your screens and how to disassemble the DS lite, these will guide youthrough the processes you need to take. These can be found by clicking on my name and then scrolling down to "tips and tricks", press the "view all" to see all of them and find what you need.

I hope this helps.

DS Lite: Green light turns on,


Im pretty sure when it gets to the point where it doesn't recognize its own screen is when its time to get a new ds. But if you really want to find out if it can be fixed (and don't mind paying more then its worth) you could to it to electronic shop or best buy to have them look at it.
