Oh dear, sounds like someone has replaced the bottom screen in the past with a none genuine DS screen that has no insulator on the back.
There is a very good chance the motherboard is toast now, to use a technical term, but there are some small chances here.
If the insulator is there, its like a black tape on the back of the screen, put some more tape where you see the burn marks. Put it together try it. next make sure the top and bottom screen ribbons are good and i mean no nicks or heavy dents. If you find one replace it, also make sure they are plugged in properly. Sometime the look like they are but are actually not.
Lastly you could try replacing L2, the small rectangular thing next to the power switch.
All I can say is good luck.

Not charging


Most possibly, the f1 and f2 fuses are blown. If you're good with a soldering iron, you can purchase fuses on ebay and find out how to replace these by watching videos on YouTube.

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.

Regards,
SOD69

Nintendo wont charge or turns on. F1 & F2 fuses are good.


Check the L2 as well (under the power switch). Replace if necessary.

Ds lite wont turn on and the battery has been needed to be charged more often?


If the battery is charged and you get no power when trying to turn on the DS lite, either fuse F1 or F2 is burned out. This is a tiny internal part that can be fixed by a repairman.

My ds lite will not turn on. Is this a battery issue? When I plug it in, the charge light comes on for a minute then goes off.


You have a blown internal fuse. They are very small fuses. There are two on the motherboard and locations f1 and f2. This can be fixed by a repairman.

I plug in my DS lite to charge, the light comes on for half a second, then turns off. I take out the battery, and the same thing happens


Try a different known working battery to see if the ds will charge. If it doesn't then try a different known working charger and if it still doesn't charge then that means the main board inside of the DS is bad and the DS would have to be replaced.

Ds lite comes on for a sec when charger plugged in then it goes of unit does not come on or charge


Hi three things come to mind, you dropped it but usually they wont admit it (dont go mad they usually all break when you do) if it rattles the capacitor under the power switch just fell off (common you have to solder it back on) if not that you replaced the bottom screen and forgot to insulate the metal of the back of the screen against the circuit board and blew either the f1 or f2 fuses (Replace them if you did) last thing i wont go into if you havent pulled it apart if you have reply and i will tell you Good Luck

NINTENDO DS LITE WON'T CHARGE OR POWER ON


Hey everyone, not sure if this will work for everyone, but its worth a shot.  my problem was identical to all the others here, a flash of orange and then nothing.  
i thought perhaps those little metal contacts on the battery and the ds had build up a little corrosion, interrupting the charge.  so, i took some rubbing alcohol and q-tips and gently scrubbed them clean, both on the battery AND the ds side.
After this, my ds has worked flawlessly.  Hope it's the same for you!
