Do any screens flash?

I would say its a fuse / grounding out / or battery is destroyed.


If you can, try a different battery.. Has your battery and/or DS had any previous water damage?

DS Lite Will Not Power On


There is a possibility that your battery has developed a short circuit or is so bad that it pulls down the charge voltage on the charger. You are therefore left starved of a power and therefore no function.
If possible, disconnect the battery and run the DS on the charger power alone. If the DS starts to work, I suggest replacing the battery.

When plugging in the dsi charger the orange lite comes on for anout 3 seconds then turns off


Maybe It's because it's chewed up (mine was chewed or something so I got a new one... I've been in the same situation, bud, but I couldn't do anything about the copper wire showing underneath.). Make sure to check the entire cord.

1) Try flicking on a power switch.
2) Unplug the actual charger from the wall, and plug it into a different outlet. The outlet you're using may be broken.
3) Make sure the charger is all of the way plugged into your DSi.

Really hope this helped!

Try a different charger if you can just to verify if yours is bad or not. If it works with a different charger then you know yours is bad.

If another charger doesn't work then you know that the DS is bad and you would need to get a new DS.

Nintendo ds wont charge


cheekiemunke,

First of all, your DS Lite is charging both ways.....with power on and without power on.
You have for almost 99% sure a blown fuse F2 on the systemboard.
If you can solder you can try to replace it with a new one but be adviced, it is tricky if you don't have the skills with soldering SMD components and it can send your DS lite to the trash.
So my advice is find someone that repair DS Lites or order a fuse on eBay and try it yourself.

Regards

John

Power problems with DS Lite


Really sounds like a dead battery. The DS will not work if the battery is bad even when it's plugged in. You get the quick flash of the power light and that's it.

Ds light not coming on and charger not working


When I hooked up my DS with the charger the orange light would flicker for only a few seconds then turn off.

I found out that if you KEEP THE DS ON WHILE HOOKED UP the DS will charge. Although, because you are playing/DS is on the charging will go extremely slowly.

Best option, and what I did, was was just return/exchange it. I just did that today.
