Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

Nintendo ds lite

My ds lite will not turn on. I replaced the battery with a new nintendo battery. Charged it up and the unit still will not turn on. While charging the charge light was orange. When finished the charge light went off and the power on light never comes on. I checked the battery with a multimeter and the voltage was approx. 4 volts. Any suggestions as to how to get this unit up and running again. It is just over a year old.

Your DS Lite is damaged and needs to be sent to Nintendo for repair.

Nintendo will likely tell you the unit is beyond repair and must be replaced.

If you want to avoid the middle man, you can always purchase a new DS Lite from your local electronics retailer.

Nintendo dslite wont turn on.tried charging it wit 3 different charges and it still wont charge

Ensure that you are properly recharging the battery.

1. Insert the small end of the adapter into the external extension connector (labeled "5.2V=IN") on the back of the Nintendo DS Lite, just next to the SLOT 1 Game Card opening.

2. Swing the prongs on the AC adapter until they lock into place, then insert it into a standard (120 volt) outlet.

The plug should be mounted vertically or on a floor outlet (such as a power strip).

3. Once the adapter is properly inserted, the unit will begin to charge (the orange charging light will display).

4. Once the DS Lite is fully charged, the orange charge light will go off.

Check the AC Adapter for damage (such as bent prongs or split wires). If you see damage to the AC Adapter, purchase a replacement from Nintendos Online Store.

Try plugging the AC Adapter into another wall outlet. Its possible the outlet is not working properly and has not been charging the Nintendo DS Lite.

If you are unable to get power to your Nintendo DS Lite, despite trying to properly recharge the unit, then your system will need to be repaired.

Nintendo offers convenient repairs, fast turnaround times and, for all systems repaired, a new one-year manufacturer's warranty.
