I am having trouble connecting to Wi-Fi on my DS. It keeps saying that there is no access point.


Make sure have a wireless broadband internet connection available within a short distance of where you are. The DS Lites are kinda slow. You may have to try a few times to get onto the internet. Also, sometimes if you are using a modem that is being used by some other people at the same time (coffee shop etc), it can be painful getting on the internet with the DS Lite. You might also want to power off the DS Lite and even remove the battery for a minute and put the battery back in and power the unit back on. This will reset the DS Lite and and sometimes accelerate the speed at which the DS Lite process.

Tip

DS Lite fuse replacement F1 F2


Hi,

Does your DS lite refuse to charge?
Does the orange charge light not come on at all?
Has your DS stopped switching on with no green light at all?
Well this is the guide for you.

Remove the DS lites base plate (for a guide on how to do this see my other tips and tricks) and locate F1 and F2 (see pics)

F1- Charging fuse. Change this one if you have the following issue:
Orange light doesn't come on at all when the charger is inserted and a battery connected.

F2- Console power fuse. Change this one if you have the following issue:
The DS lite console charges but refuses to power on.

If you find that the DS lite console neither charges or switches on i.e. no lights come on, not even for a brief time you can replace both fuses and it "should" resolve the issues, however, I cannot guarantee this as there could be other factors for the lack of power e.g. water damage.

To change a fuse you need to first remove the old one, do this by desoldering either side of itand remove it from the board.

Putting the new fuse on is a little trickier, you will need to hold the fuse in place with a small enough item that will not get in the way ofthe soldering process such as a cocktail stick or tweezers. Solder either side of the fuse to the board taking care not to make a bridge* with the solder. Give your newly laid fuse a test to be sure you have done it correctly, put the DS lite back together and then your done.

*Bridge - A solid connection made over or around the fuse thus bypassing it.

I hope this helps and I have to say that I take no responsability for any damage that may occur whilst following my tips/ guides.

Tip

DS Lite Slot -1, games cartridge not reading games repair / resolution.


Hi,

Has your slot -1 games cartridge reader stopped working? Is it being temperamental with your cartridges? Here are a few tips to get your DS lite back to full working order.

1) First try giving the games cartridges metal contacts a clean, ideally with a cotton bud and white spirit (if you don't have white spirit try avoiding anything soapy, if you can try to stick to an alcohol based solvant such as nail polish remover).

2) If that doesn't work you can try cleaning the cartridge socket (slot1), you can buy proper cleaning cartridges for the DS lite, or, if your feeling brave you can get a jaye cloth, dampen it with an alcohol based solution (same as what is used to clean the cartridge) make sure it is well wrung out so that the cloth is only slightly damp and thinly wrap it around a rigid ruler, which can then be gently placed into the slot to give it a bit of a clean.

3) If both of those fail you may find that some of the pins within slot1 are bent/snapped and so this will need to be fixed, If under warranty i'd suggest taking them in to get looked at. If they are not and you feel brave you can set about fixing it yourself, take the DS lite apart and have a look at the pins on the slot1 socket, if they are damaged you can buy a replacement socket on ebay, but be warned it is a tricky job to solder a new one on.

To solder the replacement slot -1 on firstly you will need to remove the old one, take care not to damage the pcb tracks when doing this as it will cause the replacemet process to be far more difficult and a purchase of a track repair fluid may be needed. Your best option is to de-solder it buy removing the exisiting solder to free it from the motherboard. Once you have done this you need to put the new one on, take great care not to fuse any of the pin connections together with the solder as this will cause the DS great problems and break it. Re assemble the DS lite and give it a try.

If you need help with taking the DS lite apart please refer to my other tips and tricks posted on here.

Just so you know I take no responsability for any damage that may occur whilst following these tips.

Hi,
its possible that one of the internal fuses have blown. there are 2 on the DS/DS lite. these are very small and will require removing and re-soldering. this is very intricate work, and i would suggest sending in for repair.

How to download games from pc to ds lite?


You need to get something like an M3 Real card which fits inside SLOT 1 of your DS (where the DS games go). The M3 card itself has a space for a micro SD card on which you will store the ROMS for the DS games you have on your PC. Note that downloading ROMS is ILLEGAL unless you have bought the original game. Hope this helps. I got my M3 Real from Deal Extreme - they are based in Hong Kong, but deliver promptly and have the best prices I have seen for the M3 Real.

When this "freeze" occurs, turn off the DS system and remove and re-insert the game cartridge several times. Turn the system back on and the game should appear. If not, repeat this procedure.
