    Mine won't turn on or charge either. When I plug in the AC adaptor the light flicks on for a second then turns off. I don't know anyone else with a DS so I can't test another charger.

    Power light comes on then immediately powers off. When i plug charger in orange light comes on for a bit then it goes out too. New battery didn't solve this problem either.

Nintendo DSI won't turn on and the charger light won't turn on. It is only about a year old. Can you tell me what could be wrong with it?

One possibility is that your charger is broken. This is likely the case as your charger light is not turning on. You can test to see if this is the case by using another charger. If the other charger is not working you have an internal hardware problem and will need to contact Nintendo for repairs.

Your DS Lite is damaged and needs to be sent to Nintendo for repair.

Nintendo will likely tell you the unit is beyond repair and must be replaced.

If you want to avoid the middle man, you can always purchase a new DS Lite from your local electronics retailer.

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 charger

Likely not, as the DS Phat and Lite use a special charger that you can get at Walmart or somewhere similar for cheap, although I'd complain about it to whoever you bought the DS from and see if you can get a free charger from them.
