Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

L button isn't working properly + Green light won't work.

I have a white DS lite and I got it the Christmas of 2007, so it's a little older. But, anyways my L button doesn't work right. Sometimes it won't respond when i press it like a normal button, and if that is the case and I press it pretty hard it will work. Another one (happened today) is if it won't work when i press it real hard, and if i pop it towards me and press it it will. It's weird and ANNOYING. Does anyone know how much that would cost to fix it? It is pretty important when it comes to MarioKart.

My green light doesn't work either, I dropped it one day and i guess the light cracked or broke. I guess i don't really need it considering when its on and no light it means its charged. but it would be nice to have it closed and on and know its on. Anyone know how much that would cost?

SOURCE: since using mariokart my ds keeps freezing and i

My thought on this matter is that the mariokart game cartridge is bending the pins in the game socket (slot1) i maybe wrong but original cartridges have little plastic groves between the copper tracks, if one of these has been damaged some how ie: my son bit the end of his lol!, it could bend one or more of the pins inside the socket and therfore causing your problem, and a new socket is needed. Cheaper than buying a new ds, but requires good soldering skills.
As for the virus theory you never know, but i havent herd of one affecting the ds ....Yet!!

Sounds like you need to send it in for repair. I had sent my console to VideoGame911.com and they repaired mine at a great cost and got it back at the end of the week. Give them a try, they are cheaper than a manufacturer. Good luck!

DS won't turn on


Hi Atticus,

 

I have seen this happen when someone plugs the wrong charging cord up to the DS lite, Is there any chance some one did this to your DS lite.It sounds also as if the battery is not making proper connection.

 

  1. REmove the battery from the compartment
  2. inspect the connector on the battery and where the battery connects to the DSlite.
  3. Wipe thee connections off some way. I suggest some contact cleaner for bith the battery and Battery compartment connections
  4. Try the DS lite again with the battery installed.

I hope this gets you in business  Atticus. Do not Vote until we get it working.  Try this and add a comment to this problem posting. I will answer as soon as I possibly can. Thank you very much for the opportunity to solve your porblem with a DS Lite.

My DS lite wouldnt switch on whilst i was on it so


It sounds like a faulty on off switch, when you turn it on it is not contacting fully, i had this problem with my grandsons ds lite, what i did was unscrew the ds, then looked to see if the push up and down on off switch was fully contacting when switching on, when i took the case off i could turn it on, i just made sure everything was in place and put the case back on, its ok now, i could be the on off switch had dislodged ater time, and just needed re locating, its nothing to do with getting a new battery.

When i turn my ds lite on both screens are white. the green light is on and i have a gba game and a ds game in but its just white. nothing happens when i push the buttons or tap the screen. it was working...


When the screen goes white, that is an indication that it is attempting to read the game cartridge, take out which ever one is set to start by default and blow into it, becareful when blowing into the cartridges that your not spitting on them as well. If this does not work, please leave a comment and I'll try to assist you further.

Nintendo DS Lite won't turn on


My kids did the same thing. What I did to get it to work was to push back on the top and hold it turn it on. If it comes on then turns off after you let it go get 2 rubber bands and put the 1st. one on the top left down to the bottom right. The 2nd. one goes from the top right right to the bottom left. Then keep turning it on while moving the top to find the sweet spot.
