Re: nintendo ds lite will not turn on

I would say you need a charger. sounds flat.go back on ebay to purchase a seperate one or maybe a games shop has a generic charger.

Hi Alonso,
The F2 fuse has blown, You can buy them off ebay quite cheap and solder the new one back onto the board it is to the right of the game slot and under the battery terminal (P7). you will need a low voltage soldering iron, solder and good eye sight as these fuses are smaller than a flea in size to put on.
Hope this helps.
They are quite easy once you have done a few.

I bought a DS Lite on Ebay but it has problems. In the item description it said that the buttons didn't work, but I can't get it to turn on. I flip the on switch and the green light comes on but nothing...

Way did you get a DS Lite from Ebay? Don't you know that stuff on Ebay is always broken or worse?! throw away the ********** thing and go to the store and buy one! :(

Ds lite suddenly stopped working

The orange light goes off when the battery has been charged to its highest capacity. After every charge, the batteries capacity is decreased. Get a new battery, that should do it.

Ds lite not working

i had same problem ( bought a faulty nds off ebay and would charge but nothing when powering up, not even a blink of green light) problem is a component called a L2 its an inductor 33uH in case SMD 1007. its situated dirrectly under the power switch but they are prone to fall off when nds is dropped ect. you need to resolder it on (very tricky). give your nds a shake to see if you can hear it rattelling about. be carefull when opening your nds not to lose the part (its very small, about 4mm long 2mm wide) GOOD LUCK

Ds lite possible fuse problem

This probleem look indeed like a Fuse problem. If you can't repair it youreself, use google to find a repair service in your neighbourhood.
I know it could not be easy to find some but they out there.
What you could do is go to eBay and find some resellers of DS Lite parts and send them a personal message and aske them if they can help you replace the fuse.

Nintendo ds lite will not turn on, when trying to charge the orange lite blinks once.

after researching this for a while, i heard that it is because the fuses have blown inside the ds. you can try to fix it but it is risky.
good luck!
