Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
Posted on Dec 24, 2007
I know that this is probably not the answer you guys want to hear about this issue...
You're going to have to contact Nintendo and make good on your warranty on this one. Just tell them that the unit is no longer charging and that you 'don't know why'. They should have no real problem replacing it for you.
This is most likely an internal electronics issue that no expert here is going to be able to advise on.
Unfortunately the internet still isn't good enough that we can do solder jobs over our internet connections. :P
=THIS IS NOT A PROPOSED FIX. DO NOT RATE ME FOR IT=
Otherwise, if you wish to persist in trying to fix your problem, the only thing that I can tell you is to either try using someone else's charger adapter, buy a new adapter OR use an adapter that works and hold it at different positions in the DS Lite to see if any position will charge it. If you are succesful at charging it in this manner then the port you plug the charger into may be loosened.
===DO NOT RATE ME FOR THIS POST. IF YOU GIVE ME A POOR RATING FOR THIS POST I WILL DISPUTE IT WITH THE FIXYA STAFF AND ASK THAT IT BE REMOVED. I AM NOT ATTEMPTING TO SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM BUT AM GIVING YOU ADVICE ON WHAT YOUR BEST BET IS. I WILL however accept a GOOD rating if it is given - naturally. LOL===

Hi there . heres a solution for this issue (orange light comes on and off in a few seconds),it wors for me with 5 simple steps
1.- Remove Battery
2.- Open the DS Lite from were's the touch screen
3.- Try to locate the power cables that supply the main board , they are 4 cables , see if one are unplug an conect...
4.- now with the DS Lite open conect the charger .. and if orange light come's on for more than 5 seconds ... congrats... you fix it !!!
5.- Close your DS and have a nice play ..
If you do these steps and have the same problem its pretty sure your DS Lite had a broken mainboard ... you can get one at Ebay.
