Normal nintendo won't listen to a word I say it won't turn on, the screen will be black then. Whenever I ask It to play games it will flash the red light on and off and the screen will also flash on and...

Video games consoles want you to understand them and they will disobey you if they think that you don't have enough experience or no experience at all. You are going to have to earn yout consoles trust by cleaning it out or by cleaning out the game packs with qutips and rubbing alcohol. Mine are like that then they only will listen to me.

My NDS just shuts down randomly in the midst of playing, usually with the green light giving a few blinks. No flashing screens though, and it's definitely charged. What could be wrong?

Is it still under warranty? Call Nintendo and have them repair it for you. I had the same exact issue, Nintendo solved my problem in less than a week.

Well the blue screen is a sign and a sympotom of a power supply failure then. So it won't work any more.

System just keeps flashing blue on the screen what

Hi sounds like the common fault found with these old retro consoles. Flashing light is mostly because the system does not make good contact with the game. which may be because of a worn out connector pins in side the console or dirty games recommend cleaning all your games with a game cartridge paste cleaner and replacing the connector pin with a new one. see they carry these items and included photo instructions.

Power button failure

  • Power Light Shuts Off
    If the power shuts off during game play (even as much as 30 minutes after the system is turned on), then turns off and won't turn back on or the fan isn't working, the system needs repair.
  • Power Light Flashes
    If the power light flashes once when power button is pressed, then turns off and won't turn back on, the system needs repair
