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)

Hi just got dslite today put charger on after a while the orange lite goes off then try and turn it on a flash of white on the screen but nothing

It is normal for the orange light to go off after the DS is fully charged(usually an hour or so not something that happens quickly), however a white screen flash is not though when you have a game catridge in it will sometime flash as its loading. If it is new I would quickly return it. If its something you cant return you can send it to nintendo to be repaired at a cost usually $80. If not an option then take out the battery and put it back in and try again. Have you tried to turn it on when its plugged in? If its used and does work when plugged in you probably need to replace the battery. These are avaiable all over the net or Gamestop. I will repeat though if it's new return it!

It wont turn no matter how long i charge it

does the orange light flash of a few seconds after you plug it in? If it does, I think that it is a battery problem. After a lot of charges, the battery's capacity decreases. If the orange light just flashes, I would try a new battery for ds lite battery or for a ds battery (both $8)

My nintendo ds lite is not working.The battery is fully charged but nintendo does not work.What should i do?

If your DS switches on briefly with a green light and a flash from the screens then one of your screens is faulty, could be a easy as re-seating the connection for it. If not changing the screen most often the top one.
If the orange light comes on when plugged in its probably the fuse called F1 on the motherboard. You can jump it out with a bit of wire to test it, then if that works change it.

When plugging power to the DS lite the led flashes orange once

I think if the orange light flashes once it means it has a full charge.

Ds is plugged into charger. But when i try to

What is the orange charging light doing? If it is just flashing on, or only staying on or a minuet, that means you need a new battery. The orange light foes on when the battery has been charged to its maximum capacity. After each charge, the capacity is decreased. So if the orange light is on for only a short time, get a new battery.

Hey everyone, not sure if this will work for everyone, but its worth a shot.  my problem was identical to all the others here, a flash of orange and then nothing.  
i thought perhaps those little metal contacts on the battery and the ds had build up a little corrosion, interrupting the charge.  so, i took some rubbing alcohol and q-tips and gently scrubbed them clean, both on the battery AND the ds side.
After this, my ds has worked flawlessly.  Hope it's the same for you!
