Used the adapter for the first time to charge the console and it is stuck fast in the console. I am sure that i connected it the right way up so cant understand why it wont disengage. Please can you help?
Re: the adapter will not disengage from the console
You must forcefully remove the charger cable from the ds, try grasping the hard part of the charger cable where it inserts into the ds and have someone else hold the ds then pull. if it doesn't release still don't break the charger cable just send it off to nintendo and have them service it.

usually fast flashing charge is faulty battery its trying to get volts in to the battery. you see the battery has a charging board on the battery not in the camera the camera sends the volts to the battery and the battery tells the camera its voltage, and when at the right volts stops charging. but these batteries can only be charged to around 10000hrs depending on the type of battery. you see when you get a new battery you need to charge it before use, now this can be 6hrs to 12hrs for fist time use if you interrupted the charge or have a power cut while it charges it can damage the charging chip in the battery. if this does the flashing light on other batteries then the signal is not being read by the camera and the camera can be faulty on the charging circuit, usually (sometimes) removing the battery for a few hours can fix this but it will rest the camera. hope this helps you.
If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and graduallythe charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The batteryshows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops offto zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptablecharge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
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.
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.
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.
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
Sounds like a processor error. Try CPR in NYC. They usually have a 1-3 day turnaround time, and are pretty cost effective. You can easily ship them your unit. They repair playstations, xboxes, etc. Fast and cheaper than the manufacturer.

A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power
adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop,
remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop &
see if it works. If the laptop works directly from the power adapter
with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case
we can suspect that the battery is defective.
the ac adapter doesnt charge the batterys only runs it on mains you dont have to remove them but you should, they leak if not used or been in for a long time corrodes the pins and renders anything allmost useless to run on batterys when you put them back in
never do things like that.did your ds lite come with a ac adapter?did you check in the box?if not call the nintendo experts 1-800-255-3700.they will either take it out and send it back to you or give you a new one (and u must pay if they cannot take it out)
