Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

Power On So i just bought a Nintendo DS Lite off ebay, and realized later that it had a malfunction (don't worry i'm learning my lesson already).But I want to know is there a specific problem if the it doesn't power on.The page says, and I quote, "Unit is unable to power on therefore unable to test. Red light blinks then shuts off immediately." if there's anyway of fixing this or if it's worthless now, please let me know.

US Nintendo DS-Lite with converter problems in South Africa


It should work straight out with a step down transformer. That is of course if the mains supply in South Africa is 240 240 and the unit being American is 110.

This is of course not unless it was initially tried without a transformer or stepdown converter which would mean that the charger/adapter has been fried and therefore damaged.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Bottom screen is out of calibration. Tried to recalibrate, but does not help. any ideas?

Most likely what you need is a new digitizer (they sometimes begin malfunctioning in the fashion you've described). It's a clear surface above the screen that receives the touching inputs. Very cheap on ebay (you may want to find one that comes with a tri-wing screwdriver).
You can find plenty of video tutorials on how to do it on Youtube, but if you have any question, please don't hesitate to ask me.
