Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

Beyond Repair? Nintendo DS Lite will not power up/switch on? I'm the one with the DS who left it in car = moisture etc. Tried taking battery out and using on charger alone - orange light comes on (indicating fully charged) then immediatey goes out. Feeling it's fully charged, try switching on at side = nothing!? Any advice/help appreciated. Is it what I think.....gone for good?!

My Ds will not switch on. It worked this morning, it wont charge and it wont switch on either....It is a DS lite console, only 4 months old.


Your DSlite could have come into contact with liquid, OR the battery is bad.

Both are very possible and very likely.

I would try another battery before sending it out for repair. Aside from a blown fuse inside your Nintendo DS Lite, these are the only causes of no power.

Please try a battery first.

If that does not work, you will have to send this in for repair.

Goodluck and I hope I helped.

My nintendo ds lite stopped working but does charge

The LCD screens may be dead. Ask a mechanic to change the screens.

Or maybe it is about the hinge. the cables may be damaged.

Did you spill anything on the DS??

Nintendo Ds Left Trigger

The trigger button needs replacing...a picture of the button is available at:

This needs to be done with a proper soldering iron, not the one in my garage!

Easy way to get it done, buy a new trigger from eBay ( and take the part and your DS Lite (remove the covers to expose the switch, see YouTube for more help, 10 minutes work) to your local TV repair shop and ask them to solder the part onto your DS. They will usually charge a nominal amount and you DS is fixed!

Good Luck.

Power button loosely slides

Yes. The switch has broken and is replaceable. However I wouldn't recommend you do it unless you've done this before. DS Lites are easy to damage further when taking them apart. It's a great system but is easily broken beyond fixing. Look at all the posts on here from people putting new shells on and now the system won't boot up, broken ribbon cable connectors, etc. If it's under a year old contact Nintendo and they will repair it for free.
