Hi,

Did your DS get a small bang?

The problem you are having is the L2 fuse located immediately below the on/off switch when you open up the DS (lower screen).

If you give the DS a very mild rattle you will here it rattling around loose inside the DS (in most cases). A lot of the time this same fuse can be soldered back into place to fix the problem all you need is a soldering iron and a triwing screwdriver (eBay).

If it is this fuse and you cant find it, you should bring it back to Nintendo for repair or your local PC repair shop should be able to help.

SOURCE: Nintendo DS Lite Problem

That sounds like your DS lite have a lose circuit part rolling inside so thats why it cant turn on.

You need to open the console, recover the lose part from the inside and resolder it in its place (usually near the power switch, marked as L2). That should fix the problem, if not then you might have blown fuses, lose screens ribbon cables or broken LCD screens. All of these repairs are discussed in other questions here.

SOURCE: my nintendo ds lite powers

It sounds like the screens connection to the board is messed up in some way. Maybe something came loose and you could fix it by opening it up. Most likely though there is nothing you can really do. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

The Nintendo DS lite powers on, but the screen is blank..


When you power the unit on, watch to see if either screen flashes. It's a very quick white flash. If that happens, the LCD that DIDN'T flash is bad and needs to be replaced. The unit will shut off immediately afterwards. If the unit stays on but there is no display on either screen, the board is bad and the unit is scrap unless you want to disassemble and reflow. This is a rare problem but it does happen.

Screens stay black, power lite is solid green


does it make the boot up sound? if so its a fault with your screen..can replace screens for £7.50 off ebay. try re- inserting ribbon cable for screen b4 buying new screen tho (could be that). if you can't hear bootup sound when powering up then something else wrong. maybe F1 or F2 fuse blown (test with a multi meter) look on youtube for tutorial
