Cut through DS Lite charger

Is it possible to fix a DS Lite charger after it's been cut through? I was cutting off the packaging around the charger when I accidentially cut the charger itself. It was not plugged into either the wall of DS when I cut it, as it was brand new, still in the package.

You can get one new replacement for like $6.00 on ebay, or maybe buy an accesory pack with USB and car charger as a plus for like $15.00.
Not worth the repair unless you know what to do, as you have to solder wires and use electrical heat shrink tubing or open the charger enclosure to solder wires inside to get it perfect, and if bad done you can blown your DS fuses or anything worst.

Yes it's possible to sauder [if that's how you spell it lol] it back together, however there are many risks involved with a damaged wire -- electrical shock or damage to your DS Lite --the functionality of the charger is damaged at this point so it's not likely worth the try -- I would recommend returning it to the store.

Can anyone change the power jack on a nintendo ds lite? the power jack on my nintendo ds has broken pieces therefor it does not charge.

The part is readily available from eBay or a number of on-line retailers, and it is a simple diassemble, solder and reassemble job. If you are uncomfortable with a soldering iron, any local TV/Radio or component-level computer repair shop should be able to order the part and solder it in for you - it is a small job. The part is USD$5-10, and labor at a typical US shop should run as high as $50-$60.

If you find a friendly repair shop, they might cut you a break. Call around.

My son had not used his nintendo DS for some time but when he went to charge the battery, the light shined orange for a short while and then cut off.

I think its the fuse thats the problem. Try testing both the f1 and f2 fuses with a multimeter, chances are that one of the fuses have blown. Instead of replacing the fuses you can buy
a battery charger for the ds lite. search "Battery Charger for Nintendo dsl" on ebay It should
cost about $5.49

My ds lite is broken

How does it charge? If the orange charge light stays on for only a short time and than turns off, you may need a new battery. Rechargeable batteries lose their capability of holding a charge. I would suggest trying a friend's battery and see if it resolves the problem.

First of all remove all cardridges and then turn it on, if the DS does then the same contact Nintendo, always tell them that your using original cardridges.

Nintendo DS Lite Console - Repairable or Not?

um well if this is happenig i sugest that you call the number on the back of the ds and ask them what the problem is its about 45$ to send it in and get it repaired but no leaving it in the car would not do this because i have dropped it in my pool once (lol) and nothing happened to it i just let it dry so as long as it isnt still moist then it will work also it may be your battery try taking it out and pluging in to the charger and using it without the battery. and you said that it does it half way through the game try another game.
