Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

DS Lite malfunction Turns on sometimes freezes on keypress

My son’s DS Lite is not functioning properly. When you turn it on it sometimes turns on and goes to a settings screen, but when you press a button you can here a crackling sound through the speakers and the game freezes. I have taken the DS Lite apart a few times and it is still not functioning correctly. It still does the same thing. When the unit is apart and I hold the battery against the contacts it seems to at least turn on more often than when it is put together. But, the unit still freezes when any button or touch screen is pressed.
I think it has a short or something.
Any idea’s? Keep in mind I am a do-it-yourselfer with a lot of experience with fixing things, but I am unemployed and have NO MONEY!

Thanks to all.

    I am almost positive there is a short or a crack in the motherboard. I just put it back together AGAIN and I can get it to turn on most of the time, but when I twist the case ever so slightly it freezes, crackling comes from the speakers, and the display gets interference lines in it.



    So, anyone know where to purchase a new motherboard for one of these buggers?



    I am half tempted to disassemble my other son's DS lite to interchange parts to be certain.....

    Thanks for the obvious answer of calling nintendo, but as you can see it is out of warranty.....Notice where I say "I took it apart several times"
    When you take electronics apart it voids any warranties, not to mention it is a couple years old and out of warranty anyway.

When this "freeze" occurs, turn off the DS system and remove and re-insert the game cartridge several times. Turn the system back on and the game should appear. If not, repeat this procedure.
