    My sons DS lite also turn itself off intermittantly and is about 18months old,

    seems only to happen when using the buttons and not when using the stylus. I'v tried applying pressure to the console in the same ways that my son does when he's engrossed in a game but it remains on, then will turn off randomly some time later??

Turns on screen comes on and goes straight off

This is exactly what happens when either; A: your Ds lite's battery is dead, or B: your battery is worn out. If your Ds lite still does the same thing after you have let the battery FULLY charge before using it, then your battery is most likely the problem. If this is the case, then you need to buy a new battery, which is between $6 - $10 at some places. When you get your new battery (if you buy one), you need to first let the Ds lite charge COMPLETELY before use, and then after that let it fully (or at least mostly) die before charging it again. If you constantly charge it when it is half or mostly full, then than will MAJORLY shorten the battery life, and eventually cause the problem you described. You need to take care of the battery or it wont last very long.

My ds just crashes--shuts down--when playing. Is

The same thing happened to my DS that was 3 years old. But at a point it didn't even turn on. The top screen made a quick blink then it turned back off automatically. I suggest you just get a new DS (I got a DSi) because a new battery is VERY expensive.

Answer:It is definitely the battery, though.

Nintendo DS Lite will not turn on.

There may be a problem with the battery itself. The same thing happened to my sister's DS. You could take it to a repair shop, and for about $70 - $90 they will fix it. That in my opinion is better than
buying a new one for about $200.

Hope it helps~

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.

Nintendo DS Lite shuts off randomly.

I'm a certified electronic technician and I must say NDS internal screen ribbon connectors are junk! Basically The ribbon connectors are so sketchy that it is not recommended to ever unclip them, if you do there's a good chance it will ever work again once reconnected due to how the connector pins slightly crimp into the ribbon pads.

When a NDS boots up the the onboard firmware constantly tests the LCD screen connections, if there is a break in the connection the NDS will shut down. If your NDS randomly turns off, fails to boot, or powers of when you move the hinge it is most likely the ribbon (flex film) or ribbon connector has failed. The only option to to replace the affected LCD screen.
