Re: ds nintendo will not charge light flashing and think...

After a bit of trial and error I found that one of two internal fuses had blown. You can bridge the fuse with a bit of solder to fix it but this means if the same thing happens again there will be no fuse to protect your DS. My own solution is to get a friend to charge my battery on their DS while I wait for a desktop battery charger to arrive from Hong Kong. I found the battery charger on ebay. I suggest you charge your battery in a friend's DS and put it back in your own to see if you DS works. If it does then you have the same problem as me.

Hope this helps.

Orange light flashes and wont charge

This usually means you either might have a faulty charger cable. Or it is connected to the wi-fi. I am guessing it is off. Try letting the ds run completely out of battery to the point where you cannot even turn it on. Then plug the cable into the ds first. Then plug the charger into a different outlet. Hopefully this solves your problem. Good luck :)

The nintendo DS is flat. Whe I attempt to charge it the light flashes orange and then goes off?

That usually means that the ds is fully charged. If it is not charged then there is probably a problem with the battery or the charger.

When The DS Boots the top screen flashes for a second and the whole unit turns off.

You should try charging the DS system if the light is red. Make sure both the outlet you plug the DS into, the charger, and the DS charging port are not damaged. If this does not work, try visiting this website: or calling Nintendo Customer Service at 1-800-255-3700.

Hope this helped,

Ds is plugged into charger. But when i try to

What is the orange charging light doing? If it is just flashing on, or only staying on or a minuet, that means you need a new battery. The orange light foes on when the battery has been charged to its maximum capacity. After each charge, the capacity is decreased. So if the orange light is on for only a short time, get a new battery.

Nintendo DS Lite - does not charge

i would suggest trying to find what the issue is, if you know anyone who has a different charger, try it on your daughter's ds. if it still doesn't work, it's a DS problem...if it's under warranty, go to whatever store you bought it at and have them fix or replace it. If you try the different charger and it DOES work, then the only problem is the then all you have to do is go buy a new charger...hope this helps.

Nintendo ds not charging from mains , light on for a second then goes off

mine does that sometimes, that might not be the ds it could be the charger plug itself, if you know anyone with a ds try and use their charger if it does the same see if you can get your ds repaired but i would think it is the charger
