Question about Nintendo DS Console

My DS touch screen flashes once when the power switch is flipped, then turns off.

My DS lite touch screen flashes once when the power switch is flipped, then turns off.

Here are some things that happened to it: (don't ask how)

- Friend dropped it on cement.
- Sister threw it twice on the carpet.

It worked for about 5 months after the incidents, and now it suddenly started to flash.

Is there a problem with the batteries or with the interior? Any help is appreciated.

When the ds turn off right after being powered on, that generally would mean the that the ribbon cable that goes from the top to the bottom is either disconnected, or ripped. thats like a $15-$20 fix or so when u get the parts.

No touch screen response


Remove the battery at the back of the ds to reset it, to do this you will need a small phillipes screw driver, and a small knife to flip the battery out.

When the battery has been removed turn the ds over and and rub your finger quite hard around the far edge of the bottem screen all the way around, do this a few times.

Turn the ds back over and re-insert the battery and the cover. Turn the ds on and set up your name etc, once set up go to the little icon on the bottem of the screen that looks like the ds, then go to the yellow icon on the right to calibrate the touch screen, if all goes well you should now have the touch screen back.
Post back if not, you may need to open the ds and check the connector on the logic board.

NINTENDO DS LITE WON'T CHARGE OR POWER ON


Each time you charge your battery, the charge capacity is decreased. After a large amount of charges, the capacity is decreased to an amount only enough to turn on a/the screen(s) for a second. Try getting a new battery.
