Re: My DS charger isnt charging at all, how can i fix...

Can you borrow a friend's charger to see if that charges your DS instead? If so, you know you need to buy a new charger. If not, you know that your DS charging circuit is not working.

You might be able to buy an inexpensive USB-to-DS charging cable and charge it from your computer.

I just got my touchscreen replaced and now my ds wont charge, when I plug it in there is no light or anything and it used to charge before they fixed it

If that DS has been opened by any tech, they are supposed to give warranty.
Bring back that DS to the one that repaired it and tell them that it was charging before you brought it to them, otherwise you could complain that some part have been( hopefully not ) replace mistakenly from another DS.
Hope that helps!

I got my DS in 2009 april, then on september i lost my charger then on march 2010 i found my charger then i found out i could'nt find my DS anymore a few months later i found my DS i charged then it...

The red LED indicates low power. When the DS is charging an orange LED should be on and the DS can be switched on, giving a second green light. If you tried charging it but the orange LED did not come on or only came on for a few seconds then the battery has not charged. The charger may be faulty or the power connector on the DS may be faulty. You need to try another charger. If another charger does not work then the DS is faulty and needs repair. It could be the power connector or the battery or some other fault inside.
If the amber LED comes on to indicate that the battery is charging then the battery should be fully charged within 3 hours. If the DS does not switch on after charging then the battery may be faulty. It can be removed by opening the cover on the bottom of the DS.
You should try and find a friend with a DS who will let you try their charger and battery in your DS.
If the DS itself is faulty it will probably be uneconomical to repair. If this is the case then try selling it on ebay as a faulty DS.

My ds wont charge. How do I fix this?

on the ds, after you connect the charger, the charging light goes on? if not, the problem can be the charger, or charger cable or plug.

if possible, test the charger with another ds, if the charger works, then the problem is ds internal, maybe a fuse or another component.

My nintendo ds won't charge I tired everything is

If you DS isn't charging there are two possible things that could be causing this.

The first one is that the batter inside the DS is shot, in which case you'd have to replace it.

The other one also requires replacement, and that's assuming your charger itself isn't working. Either way, you're probably going to need to replace something.

One way you could tell which is messed up is to try and charge someone else's DS. If that doesn't work then it's most likely the charger.

Hope I was able to help.

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.

Ds light not coming on and charger not working

When I hooked up my DS with the charger the orange light would flicker for only a few seconds then turn off.

I found out that if you KEEP THE DS ON WHILE HOOKED UP the DS will charge. Although, because you are playing/DS is on the charging will go extremely slowly.

Best option, and what I did, was was just return/exchange it. I just did that today.
