HELP!...need to fix L2 black box to the motherboard in a Nintendo DS lite

Hi! My neice dropped my daughters DS lite and it would not turn on so I opened it up ad found that a circuit box in the L2 quadrant(far left side on the motherboard) had been knocked off. I put the little box on and pushed it and it stuck? This resolved the problemfor 2 days until it got bumped and the peice fell off again. I need to know to afix it back....I tried a saudering kit but I got too much sauder on one side and it would not come on...so I have removed it again...What do I do know? Thanks so much for your help!!

My daughter's friend had the same problem. Soldering was difficult, but repaired the problem.
I used a very fine solder and 15W soldering gun, both from Radio Shack.

Ok i have a nintendo ds lite and when i turn it on the green light turns on but not the screens on top and bottom


Hi,

Assuming there is no water damage to the DS lite the most likely causes for this is that you have most likely either dislodged the wifi module, or the L2 component has come off the motherboard.

I would suggest sending it off if you have a warranty, take it to a repair shop if your warranty has expired or if you fancy repairing it yourself then you wil need to dismantle the DS lite.

If its the wifi module that has come loose then its just a matter of pushing it back into place. If its the L2 component it will need to be soldered back onto the board.

Hope this helps,

My Nintendo DS LIte wont turn on!!


Are there NO LIGHTS at all ? Check continuity of F1 and F2 and make sure that L2 (by the ON/OFF switch) hasn't been dislodged. At the very worst you can buy a new motherboard for about £38.00 (~$60 UK).

Ds lite battery wont charge i have charged it overnight but nothing the green light goes on but that is it


Hi,

If the green light is turning on and the screens are staying blank it is a problem with he L2 fuse on the motherboard (located just below the power button).

This can be replaced if you are handy with a soldering iron. If not drop it to a local repair shop it can be fixed for about €20.

Nintendo ds won't turn on


Many times, it is the L2 Inductor chip that has popped off on impact- that's usually what you hear rattling around inside the housing...and it requires a TriWing screwdriver to open it. I tried re-soldering the L2 inductor back on the mainboard inside with a Hakko ESD protective soldering station, and it worked for a few days and then died again. The fix was finally desoldering another SMD inductor chip off an old PIII Socket 370 motherboard (with ChipQuik removal solder and flux kit) of very close to the same size class, from next to the Clock Generator Chip- figured it would be close to the right value, since I had no way to measure the micro- or millihenries value, and the voltage was around the value that the DS Lite runs on. The fix worked, and is still working, charging, and going strong. Usually the symptoms of the L2 inductor popping off, or failing, is being able to charge, but not being able to power up.

Nintendo DS Lite Problem


That sounds like your DS lite have a lose circuit part rolling inside so thats why it cant turn on.

You need to open the console, recover the lose part from the inside and resolder it in its place (usually near the power switch, marked as L2). That should fix the problem, if not then you might have blown fuses, lose screens ribbon cables or broken LCD screens. All of these repairs are discussed in other questions here.
