I turn on the DS and the screen flashes,THEN DEAD


Which screen?

If both of the screens flash and you've charged your dslite, i would say either your charger is bad, your battery is bad, or your charging port inside your system is bad.

You would have to try different batteries and chargers to pinpoint the problem. I recommend this situation before sending it in for repair, if repair will cost you some money.

If only 1 of the two screens are flashing, then it would have to be sent in for repair since Liquid damage or rips can cause this problem.

Hope I helped!

I was changing the shell on my ds lite, and when I turn it on, it turns off almost immediately, but if I take off the internet part of the motherboard, the ds turns on but there is no image on the ds. It...

Firstly without the "internet part of the motherboard" the ds is unable to load.

When you turn the ds lite on do any of the screens flash? If they do then the screen that doesn't flash will either need to be reconnected or replaced (they are very easily damaged). That will solve your issue.

If none of the screens flash then its possible that you will need to change/replace some fuses on the motherboard.

Get back to me with your findings and I will talk you through what you will need to do.

Ds lite flashes on but fuses are ok

One or both your screens have blown.

Try removing the motherboard from the screens and attach the battery the green light should turn on and stay on.

Now attach the lower screen and turn on. If the screen is ok the screen and green light will flash and then turn off. (if the screen doesn't flash the bottom screen is you're problem and will have to be replaced)

If this happens the problem is then you're top screen which you will have to replace.

Each time you charge your battery, the charge capacity is decreased. After a large amount of charges, the capacity is decreased to an amount only enough to turn on a/the screen(s) for a second. Try getting a new battery.
