When i turn my ds lite on the touch screen blinks and shuts off


either a fuse has gone or the screen is sorting out on the motherboard. check youtube for instructions on how to fix fuses, or if you have had a new screen put some insulation tape on the back of it.
Other possible causes can be a fault with the top screen so investigate tat too. the ribbon cables can tear

Nintento DS - I turn in on, the light is green, not red so the battery is fully charged. it blinks and shuts down. Help!


The fuses have blown on the logic board, the only way to repair is to change them.

To change the fuses good soldering skills are needed. You must have a tri-wing and philips screw driver to take the back case off, once removed you'll see the logic board, here is a diagram of the board and where the fuses are situated:

Nick625343,

Your DS Lite is damaged and needs to be sent to Nintendo for repair.

Nintendo will likely tell you the unit is beyond repair and must be replaced.

If you want to avoid the middle man, you can always purchase a new DS Lite from your local electronics retailer.

Nintendo DS lite


Baakie,

You turn de DS Lite on, the green light flashes and the unit turned of. Is that correct?

The DS Lite checks some things before he starts-up. One of these things are the screens. the DS sends a signal to it and expect an answer back. When this answer is not received, it shuts down.
The most common problem in these cases is the flatcable of the upper screen.
Question is, did you replaced the housing? If so, you might dammaged the flatcable of the upper screen. If not, the flatcable might be defective because of using the DS Lite a lot (open /close the unit).

So first check the flatcable of the upper screen (google and you will find manuals how to open the DS Lite but be carefull!!!!)

Second, on the mainboard are two fuses (F1 and F2) . Check these! One of them might be defective

Success

Most likley, you did not correctly seat the ribbon cable for one of the screens into it's connector.

Did the unit function correctly before?
Did you change the case because the previous one broke?

Fuse location on nintendo ds lite


Bottom screen flashing and the unit shutting down is more like a broken top screen or ribbon problem.

The fuse problems usually blink the amber light in your DS each time you connect the charger.

And I am sure you will find a guide looking in google for it, just as I did and there are plenty.

ITS AN INTERMITTENT CONTACT with the ribbon belt that connects from the main unit to the upper screen , I believe you need to take the DS for an authorized repair shop, but before doing anything , give a call to a tech support at NINTENDO , THEY would gladly help you out and inform you whats the next step , hope this helps , AJ , in case you dont have the LINK, let me give it to you : http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/ ,

DS blinks and will not turn on


Hi
As complicated a console as the DS is, it is not surprising you have a problem after changing a case. Sometime the little snap on wires do not snap on right.  You need to go back in and  make sure the ribbons and snap on connectors are sucured. The ribbon and wire that runs from top half through the hinge needs to roll up one turn before in the transition from the top to bottom half.  You may have the ribbon upside down in the connector.
