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?!

    I got angry with one of my games and got so angry I actually whacked my head on it and it froze. So I turned off and then tried to turn it on again but it didn't work. I don't want to have to buy another one. Can you help me?

DS Lite Will Not Power On

There is a possibility that your battery has developed a short circuit or is so bad that it pulls down the charge voltage on the charger. You are therefore left starved of a power and therefore no function.
If possible, disconnect the battery and run the DS on the charger power alone. If the DS starts to work, I suggest replacing the battery.

Hi my nintendo ds lite battery is dead and my charger is lost is there any other way to charge it without a charger?

You can try charging your DS lite using a phone charger. In order for this to work the charger must
  • Output around 5.2 volts
  • The end of the plug must look like the second plug from the left in this picture
When plugging this cord into your DS lite do NOT force it in. If you push to hard it may break the DS lite.

Everytime I wanted to charge my ds lite, the power turns red then it turned off in a second. I don't know where the problem comes, if it's the charger or the ds itself


Possibly both, or it could be your battery. Have you tried another battery? or tried the same charger on another DS lite?

I suggest you get another battery or another charger, whichever is cheaper , or try it on a friends.

If your charger and your battery works, then it is your charging port, it will have to be replaced.

Nintendo ds lite will not turn on, when trying to charge the orange lite blinks once.

after researching this for a while, i heard that it is because the fuses have blown inside the ds. you can try to fix it but it is risky.
good luck!
