Question about Nintendo DSi Black Console

1 Answer

Recharging the Battery

I have a Nintendo DSi that was purchased July 29, 2009. When I charge it, the light will go off which indicates that the machine is fully charged. Then when I unplug it and replug it, the light will go back on. Is there a problem with it, or is this supposed to be that way??? I think I am only getting 2-3 hours of battery life. The manual says I should get 4-6 hours.

Hi my nintendo ds lite wn't turn. do i require to charage my ds,or no?

A Nintendo DS console will indeed need charging. If your light appears as red, yes, you will need to purchase a Nintendo DS charger. All and every kinds of Nintendo DS's require charging. Nintendo DS, Nintendo DS Lite, Nintendo DSi, Nintendo DSi XL, and Nintendo 3DS. You will have to insert the wall outlet side of the plug into the wall, and the other smaller side into the DS, DSi, or 3DS.

If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to contact me!

My son's DSI will not turn on. He has charged the battery and it still doesn't turn on. Could it only be that the battery life has expired and it time to be replaced?

It very well could be the rechargeable battery could have gone bad. This is an easy fix that even the least mechanically inclined person could do themselves. The link and the video below show you how to replace a DSI rechargeable battery. The link below also gives you information on ordering certified nintendo replacement parts. Hope this helps.

Battery? console has no charge when plugged into wall outlet I push power button blue LED comes on briefly , then red flashes 3 times, and the yellow LED lights up along with the health warning on the...

What color is the power light when the system shuts off?
    Red: If the power light is red, or flashing red, when the system turns off, then the system's battery needs to be charged.

    Blue: If the power light is blue when the system turns off, then there appears to be a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.

    If the orange recharge indicator light blinks while the system is plugged in and charging, then it is likely that the battery is not installed properly.

    If you have ensured that the battery is installed properly but the orange light still blinks, check to make sure that the battery is a licensed by Nintendo. The only licensed Nintendo DSi battery will have the model number "TWL-003" (Nintendo DSi) or "UTL-003" (Nintendo DSi XL) and will display Nintendo's logo.
    Call 1-800-255-3700 if you still need help.
