I will try eventually to leave it on until the battery runs out but it always has full power all the time no sound no display nothing... once i tried wiping my sceen with a really wet paper towl my uncle tried to fix but it only worked for a few days then did this help please!!
I'm guessing that the battery is overloaded. This might happen if you didn't use Nintendo brand charger/ battery. Buy a new battery or a new console. I wouldn't know, the only issues I have had with my ds lite is freezing games from using action replay.

It would help knowing what operating system is I.e. Windows 7 or 8.can you get into safe mode by repeatedly tapping f8 this should give you drop down menu for last known good configuration.choose this to see if the laptop returns you to a desktop.the battery can be checked by leaving the power supply in until you get to the open screen desktop then remove power supply and check the icon for battery bottom right.if you hover the cursor over the icon it will give battery life in percentage.batteries eventually fail mainly because people do not charge them properly.you need to run it flat occasionally and do a full recharge.once it reaches 100% take the power supply off and run it down to 20% and charge back to 80 % half a dozen times in between full charges?also in control panel there is an icon for battery whereby you can force the battery to discharge so you can re educate the full charge memory,this usually increases the stamina of a failing battery.
Try leaving the DS on until the battery dies, then charge it all of the way with the DS off. If that doesn't work, I would call Nintendo customer service. They are excellent at helping people with problems just like this. Here is the 800 number I got off of their website. 1-800-895-1672
i had some trouble with my ds, and so i killed the battery. you have to stop charging it and leave it on with full sound to down the battery faster. keep doing this untill when you turn it on it shuts off by it's self imediately. leave it alone for a week or so and then check and see if you can turn it back on. if it won't even light up for a moment when you hit power you've done it right.
WARNING: this will erase all saved data for all games on the ds.
you can now plug it into the wall and let it charge for at least 5mins. keep it pulgged in and turn it on. it should show the settings menu for birthday,time,etc. just like when you first took it out of the box.
this will reset the ds to factory settings, and should alow you to change the time.
NOTE: only do this if the time is REALLY bothering you.
try charging it, or if that doesnt work,the battery might be in incorrectly, or one of the battery pins is broken or bent.if the battery is in incorrectly try putting it in again.if one of the pins is bent try carefully bending it back.if one is bro0ken,you might consider a new DS.there could also be forien material in thew battery compartment, in which case you would extract.if none of these solutions work,it might either be the battery(in which case you would buy a new one)or an intenal problem (which would lead me to consider a new DS)
You can still use your laptop even if you take out the battery and run on ac alone. You can also leave your battery in with the ac plugged in for 4 hours to charge it even if the laptop is off. Hope this helps. Thank you.
Are you leaving the DS charge until the light comes off? Remember that there are two likes too, one for charging and one for power. If you're just charging for some random period of time (lets say... One hour) then your Battery isn't going to be fully charged. The best way to ensure that your DS Lite is charged is to leave it charge until the charge light turns off. You can play your DS Lite while you are charging (I do it all the time), but it just means that you're just running off of the outlet.
A good test is to charge it fully (until the charge light comes off), unplug the charger cord (Make sure it's secured tightly to your DS while charging), then play for a little bit, your light should be a normal color (green).
If you cannot even play by using the outlet, then you need to find a charger cord that actually works (You may need to send in the charger for replacement). If the same thing happens with 2 different batteries (assuming that you have two official Nintendo batteries).
TIP: Also run your fingers across the Charger cord. You're going to get a slight friction burn from the rubber, but you're going to get all of the kinks out of the wire in the cord. My charger cord had a similar problem (did not charge all the way, only charged until I moved the DS) but when I ran my fingers across it (pinching) it worked again.
Also check the pins in both charger cords, charging will not work if one pin is missing, nor if any are bent.
You never want to play the DS while it's charging, if constsntly persisted it can cause a form of battery leak.
IMPORTANT: Don't charge the DS until it dies on you completely!
When charging the DS the system will display a red light to show it's at its lowest energy, the time it takes to fully charge a DS can take up to 2-3 hours. In the second hour of charging the light will appear green but you don't want to disturb it until the light goes off. ( showing it's energy is full )
