Re: nintendo ds

Most likely the moisture has irrepairably damaged the console. You need to get the moisture completly out of the system. 

Your best chance of getting it working is to disconnect the power, remove the battery if you are handy enough with small electronics, and then leave in a warm, dry environment to properly dry for 48-72hrs.  The longer you leave it to dry, the better your chances. 

However, even if it comes good again, corrosion will most likely become a problem, and will cause the console to behave erratically or not at all later on.

When i power on my ds lite my green light turns on then turns rite bcak off and when I attach the charger it does the same thing.... What/s wrong with it?

Does the orange light come on when you plug it in? If it does, then it is a failure of either the DS's BIOS or its Memory. If the orange light doesn't come on, then the AC adapter is broken.

You can get a new adapter fairly easily, but it isn't worth trying to fix a BIOS or hardware issue.

If it's a fairly new DS, contact Nintendo's Customer Service, and see if they'll replace it.

I left my ds in the rain and now it will not work

you probably shorted out the board when you turned it on. Best thing to do is put it on ebay.

Nintendo DS Lite - does not charge

i would suggest trying to find what the issue is, if you know anyone who has a different charger, try it on your daughter's ds. if it still doesn't work, it's a DS problem...if it's under warranty, go to whatever store you bought it at and have them fix or replace it. If you try the different charger and it DOES work, then the only problem is the then all you have to do is go buy a new charger...hope this helps.

Nintendo ds wont charge


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.

Ds is fully charged and won't come on.

Does your Nintendo DS Lite still have a warranty? If so, then send it in to Nintendo for repair.

Ds lite ac wall charger

When you first get the DS it will have a bit if charge on it but only a few hours worth. When the DS charges it usally comes up with a orange/red ish light then that goes out about a few hours later when its charged. ad if you want to chek if it is charging correcly turn the DS on whilst it is charging and the little battery simble in the top right corner should show the battery carging.

Nintendo ds

There are a couple of fuses inside the ds and one of them is right up next to where the charger plugs in try to replace it. It is a little flat black piece with solder on each end and it should have a number on it you with need to replace it with the same number fuse.
