Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

I have a Nintendo DS Lite that periodically works. When it doesn't work, the screens are black but the green light is on. What could the problem be and why is it intermittent?

    If I let the DS sit for a few minutes (5 or so), it will turn on. But as soon as I turn it off, I have to wait another 5 minutes before I can turn it on again. Otherwise I just get black screens and the green light. For a while, I could hit the Right button and the green light would get a little brighter and the screens would come on, but that only worked consistently for about 10 times, then it stopped working completely. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

THe L2 fuse located directly below the power switch on the motherboard is loose and needs to be soldered back in to place correctly.

    There is a fuse called the L2 just below the power button that causes this problem when loose a small bit of solder will fix your problem.

    If you leave it and it comes off the DS will stop working. It will power on but with black screens.

Green light, black screens, no sound, needs new battery???


The alarm is just a coincidence i suspect, green light comes on and stays on probably not the battery at fault. It would be red.
If the green light goes out and screens just flash one of your screens are at fault or a loose ribbon connection.

The ds turns on but screen remains black


Hey,

Either 2 things. Your Wireless Wifi Board has gone bad or it has fallen off.


Open up your nintendo DS and look for the black wire connected to a small board. You will know because there are only 2 wires running in the DS. A white one (microphone) A black one (wifi)

This WIFI board (if gone bad) causes the DS to cut on, but get no video at all.

Ds lite green light is on but both screens are black and no sound


For GBA games the green light is meant to stay on. The orange light will stay on as long as its recharging. It will turn off when its fully recharged or when you unplug it
