Re: battery won't charge

Could be also like the pcb board problem.

Best thing to do now is borrorw your friends' battery and give a try.

If problem still there, you better send it back to the store and ask for replacement.

My sp will not charge, I am not sure if it is the battery or something else

Game Boy Advance SP - Charging Light Won't Display If the orange-colored charge light on your Game Boy Advance SP is no longer coming on when the A/C Adapter is connected to your system, please use the following troubleshooting steps.
    Troubleshooting Steps:
    1. Make Sure the Game Boy Advance SP Isn't Already Fully Charged
      If the battery is already fully charged, the light will not display when the system is plugged into the AC Adapter. Play a game without using the AC Adapter for at least 10-15 minutes, then plug the AC Adapter in, to see if the light comes on. If it does come on, the battery was fully charged. If the light still does not come on, see Step 2.

    2. Make Sure the Outlet You Are Using Works
      Plugging another electrical device into the outlet is a good way to check if the outlet works, or that the outlet you are using is not controlled by a nearby light switch. You may also want to try a different outlet.

    3. Try a Different Licensed AC Adapter
      If the charging light doesn't display, try a different AC Adapter, if possible, to determine if perhaps the problem is with the adapter.

      • If a different AC Adapter works, you will need to get a replacement AC Adapter from our Online Store, or by calling our Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700.
      • If a different AC Adapter doesn't work, or if a replacement AC Adapter is not available and the lights will not display, we recommend having your Game Boy Advance SP repaired. Check out our convenient repair options.

    Note: Please be sure to include both the Game Boy Advance SP and the AC Adapter with any repair

I have a Nintendo DS Lite that will not charge. The orange LED does not come on at all and after leaving connected for 12 hours, the battery is not charged, red LED comes on after a second or two. I have...

it sounds like it's a battery problem.

If you want to replace your battery, call Nintendo's Consumer Assistance Hotline at 1-800-255-3700 from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. Pacific Time, and order a replacement battery there. I believe it costs around US$15.00.
If you still need assistance I would suggest you check our online troubleshooting here. Depending on the specifics of your situation, the problem may be the DS Lite, the battery, or the AC adapter.

p.s. Before doing this you could maybe try using a different charger

My xbox 360 controller wont turn on and i use the charge and play batteries and when you plug it in it works but when you unplug it does not work.

From time to time the actual charging capacity of the play and charge battery will fizzle out as will regular rechargeable batteries.
If you know someone else with a play and charge ask to use theirs on yours and see if it charges and holds charge when you unplug it.
If it does then you need to purchase a new play and charge, if it doesn't the connection to the battery pack is damaged and more then likely you will need to buy a new controller. Or just keep it wired.
Hope this helps.

DS Battery Problem

it's your charging port, it's not charging the battery

Nintendo DS Adapter

You'll need an adapter that works in your country. If once you have that it still does not work then you probably need a new battery. Without a working battery you won't be able to play the DS even if the charger is plugged in. The charging light will flash and go out if the battery is bad.
