Question about Nintendo DS Console

Orange light stays on...

I bought what I knew to be a faulty ds (sounded like a dead battery) for the son who didn't have one 'cause I couldn't afford a 'working' one. The light is permanently orange. I've tried swapping the batteries, but the faulty one doesn't behave the same way - no little noises, nothing. So it's NOT the battery.

Can anyone recommend anything else I can do to try and get it to work?

DS charging..light stays orange...

It could mean that the Motherboard (Main Circuit) could be damaged or could be a fuse problem as you may have said. Although it actually might be the battery, there's one way to find out, if your friend has a DS Lite, ask them if you could borrow your battery for 2 seconds and put their battery in yours to see if it is the battery, if the same thing happens, its the Motherboard (Main Circuit)

Nintendo DS won't power-up

It sounds like a faulty battery. As it is under 1 year old, it is still under warranty. Return it to the origional place of purcase, who will either fix or replace it.

We think a neighbor girl spilled liquid on/in my son's DS Lite. It now won't power on and the orange light will stay on for only a minute or two when we attempt to charge the unit. The battery is good......

If the DS was turned on when the liquid was spilled on it I don't think there is much hope to be honest:(

If it's under warrenty send it back otherwise you might try taking it apart and use a hair dryer to dry it off... that's a long shot though!

Ds lite green light is on but both screens are black and no sound

For GBA games the green light is meant to stay on. The orange light will stay on as long as its recharging. It will turn off when its fully recharged or when you unplug it

Lights out!!

It could be that the battery is faulty. If this problem persists try contacting Nintendo and reporting it, it may be a bug as many people are suffering this problem.

Power problems with DS Lite

Really sounds like a dead battery. The DS will not work if the battery is bad even when it's plugged in. You get the quick flash of the power light and that's it.
