Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
I got a nintendo ds lite a few weeks ago from my friend, she said it is was not misused and it looks perfect but.. it will not charge and the orange light will only come on for a few seconds then shuts off. It will not work plugged in or un plugged. I tried to use a different outlet and charger the same thing occured! i dont have a warranty, and i just want to try to fix it? how should i do it myself?
There are two issues that may be causing this problem for you, one being that the charging circuit is damaged.
The more likely cause of the problem is the battery itself. When a DS is left unused for a length of time with the battery at a very low charge there is still a draw in the battery even though it is turned off. What happens is the polarity of the battery reverses once the charge reaches a certain point of degradation.
The easy fix for this is to replace the battery. You can find replacement batteries online and at your local game stores.

This is also typical fault of a DSL that has had its screen replaced with a generic screen with no backing. The metal screen shorts out the mini-board it sits on.
As yet i am waiting for help with this issue myself. Im not sure if it is permanent damage, I'm also not sure if it is due to a misplaced ribbon cable inside after screen replacement.
But it sounds as though your friend has tried to replace the screen, the unit has failed to work afterwards so has sold it to you.
