Re: ds lite

I only can guess 2 possible damages kind of repairable by a non technician:

1) The plastic switch cover is broken, then you may need to buy a new one (usually stores sell the complette shell). Or you can try to find the broken piece and paste it again in place, out of the DS, you wont like to broke also the volume switch.

2) The volume switch (toogle, variable resistor) may have a cracked solder then you may need to resolder the switch to the board. Or if the switch is broken then you would have a problem to find a replacement, but you can also buy a broken NDSL for parts.

If you want to try a DIY repair you can start by finding a 3 winding and some philips and blade small screwdrivers plus maybe a soldering gun or maybe some epoxy glue depending on the damage, but you need to carefully open the NDSL.

You can find many guides to do that in youtube, like the one named: "Disassembling Nintendo DS Lite"

Re: ds lite

No sound through speakers:

  • Make sure nothing is inserted into the headphone port.
  • Check the volume control on the bottom of the system to make sure it's not all the way to the left.
  • Check the settings of the game you are playing to make sure any sound options are set correctly.

Thats All i got for ya... hope it works

The Microphone on DS Lite won't respond.

It sounds like you either need to repair the microphone or you could buy a headset with microphone and see if that works as it plugs directly into the main board.

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.

Turns on but no sound or video

I need more info, does it power on and stay on? if it stays on, its not your battery its something else. did you drop it? i dont see how both sound and video could go out at the same time. If video or sound is not working its probably something microsopic inside and it would be very hard to fix.I suggest just sending it to nintendo they'll fix it (actually they'll just send you a new one) for 60 bucks.
