Had exactly the same scenario. Must be a production flaw that L2 sticks to the GPS piggypacked board.
Looked into another TT and found a 100 (µH assumed) on the same spot for this backlight P/S. Took an old Vodaphone/Arcor DSL Modem apart and found three coils 101, 2R2 and 100 ......
The 100 is working fine - had to shift it aside by some jumper wires.
Light is on again.

    any idea what the part number for U13 is on the same circuit. I have just bought a go 910 from ebay and the seller was not fully truthful( surprise surprise) about someone else having a go with a soldering Iron. I found solder balls and the chip is getting warm when unit powered up

Tip

DS Lite not turning on? Read this tip to find out how to fix it!


Have you dropped your DS Lite and now it rattles?

Is it charging but not turning on?

Then this is the guide for you!!

A very common problem with the DS Lite is that when it is dropped a small chip called the L2 Inductor comes away from the motherboard. This will still enable the DS to charge but you will not be able to switch it on. This guide will take you through step by step how to repair your DS Lite.

Things you will need :-



Tri-Wing screwdriver - 808dc98.jpg



Small phillips screwdriver - 62cc67c.jpg



A case opening tool - c6a93f9.jpg


A soldering iron - 6afee1e.jpg


Some solder - 864fcea.jpg


If you are lucky then your L2 inductor is still rattling around inside your DS. If it is lost then they can be bought very cheaply off of ebay :- L2 Inductor Ebay (Please note - This is not my ebay username, just the person that I always get my parts from)

Ok now we have everything it is time to start. Clear a nice big area for you to work in.

First remove any game cartridges from their slots and the DS stylus, like so -

ff0a01b.jpg

Next remove the battery cover and 2 small rubber bungs here -


ad37b16.jpg

Underneath the 2 rubber bungs are 2 phillips screws.

Next remove the battery and take out the circled 3 phillips screws. You do not need to remove the uncircled phillips screw in the battery compartment.


e10d7bb.jpg

Next, remove the 4 circled tri-wing screws using the tri-wing screwdriver -


9a2257b.jpg

Ok, thats all the screws removed, now to lift the case off. Pulling up from the back with 2 fingers on the shoulder buttons gently pull up and towards you but only enough so that you can get the case tool in to help with leverage. See below pictures -


0977ff6.jpg

1b023a2.jpg

b39b350.jpg

Work the case tool around the gap and the top cover should lift off easily. DO NOT FORCE IT! You will then be able to see the motherboard like so -


b8a30eb.jpg

The L2 Inductor sits to the left of the motherboard, right underneath the power switch -


03b3bab.jpg

Make sure that when you took the case apart if the L2 inductor was rattling around, it has not been lost. Hopefully you have managed to find it. What you need to do now is resolder the L2 inductor back onto the motherboard. Hold the L2 Inductor in place and carefully apply the soldering iron to each end, like so (it does not matter which way round the L2 Inductor goes) -


5a4ce25.jpg


71cacac.jpg

If you need to hold the L2 Inductor use something like tweezers.

Once you have secured the L2 Inductor onto the motherboard apply a tiny amount of solder onto each end of the L2 Inductor just to give it a bit more strength.

Thats it! You are done! Congratulations, you have repaired your DS Lite!

Now all you have to do is put it back together and you are finished. There are a couple of important things you need to know when putting your DS Lite back together.

You must make sure both the power switch slider and the volume switch slider are in the right place. The power switch slider should spring back to where it is supposed to but these pictures will confirm where they need to be -

Volume switch all the way to the left

79ea2ed.jpg
Power switch all the way to the right as you look at it

b24d383.jpg

The case sliders also need to be in the right place too, if you do not get this right you will break the little tabs off of the switches!

Volume slider all the way to the left

bd9331a.jpg

Power slider all the way to the right

2565b22.jpg

When you re-assemble your ds, start refitting the case from the front backwards. Get it all in line on the front and the back should drop down with ease. Again do not force anything!!


8d6f174.jpg

Replace all the screws in reverse order and you are 100% done!! Give yourself a pat on the back!!

Tomtom 910 dark screen


If the LCD backlight is gone theres no choice but to replace the whole screen ( OR it could be the LCD lamp driver circuit on the circuit board ) . It's not economical to purchase a new screen but it is possible to purchase a defunct 910 , typicaly off ebay and use the screen from it . ( ensure you are buying a tomtom with a good intact screen ) . Changing the screen is tricky and fiddly but someone with general electronics knowledge should'nt find it difficult. You also need the special "star" drivers for the screws ( sometimes known as ' torxs ' ). If you are inexperienced with this sort of work then its best not to attempt it. There are companies advertising that can do this type of work for you and especialy in UK......... Good luck.
