I had the same problem with my son's DS Lite, after replacing a broken shell with a Ghost shell.

A lot of the solutions for this problem indicate a blown fuse. Before assuming it's the fuse, check the fuses with a multimeter. In my case, both F1 and F2 were fine.

I finally tracked it down to the cable for the upper display not being fully seated into the connector. It's tough to get in all the way, but the little tabs on either side of the ribbon cable should be up against the white part of the connector. If they're not, you haven't inserted it all the way, and your DS Lite will power on for a couple seconds, the bottom screen will flash, and then it will shut off.

Bummer. Sorry to hear this. Your console is broken and needs to be repaired. Contact Nintendo and arrange to have it repaired (or replaced if under warranty.)

Ds lite screen flash white tehm off


Hi,

The screen that does NOT flash will need replacing.

It may look fine and dandy but there is still an issue.

The reason for the flash is that when switched on the DS lite performs a qucik check of the screens, if there is an issue the unit will switch itself off again.

My answer is, judging that you have said you have taken it apart to have a look that you are willing to repair it yourself.
Have a look on ebay for the relevant screen (plenty of people on ebay stock them) and then replace the screen that does NOT flash.

This should solve your issue.

If you need a guide to replace the respective screen click on my name to access my profile and at the bottom of the page you will find my guides.

Hope this helps,

Ds lite screen flash white tehm off


its possibly a software issue, babe theres some corrupt data with the os, if it still has a warranty i would recommend sending it in for repair. im pretty sure they only charge 40-50usd for repair otherwise and it would give you a chance to purchase/renew your warranty through them

Nintendo DS Lite, Dim Green Light, Brigher Green Light then off


Hi,

If the green light reacts as you state then the chances are the fuses are fine.

Again, with the reaction of the green light being as you stated i'm going to assume you have a problem with one of your screens, tell me... when the green light comes on does one of the screens flash? If it does then we have found the answer...

The screen that doesnt flash is the one with the problem, you can try taking the DS lite apart and re-connecting the screens ribon to see if that sorts it, if it doesnt then im afraid you will have to buy a new screen. These can befound on ebay for a reasonable price.

I have written some guides on how to change your screens and how to disassemble the DS lite, these will guide youthrough the processes you need to take. These can be found by clicking on my name and then scrolling down to "tips and tricks", press the "view all" to see all of them and find what you need.

I hope this helps.

Red light and screen flashes white


99% sure you have a broken flatcable that is going to the upper screen.
Only solution is to replace the screen (cable is attached to it and cannot be replaced seperate)

Nintendo DS Lite won't turn on


My kids did the same thing. What I did to get it to work was to push back on the top and hold it turn it on. If it comes on then turns off after you let it go get 2 rubber bands and put the 1st. one on the top left down to the bottom right. The 2nd. one goes from the top right right to the bottom left. Then keep turning it on while moving the top to find the sweet spot.
