SOURCE: Nintedo Ds Wont turn on! Even if Charged!

Does the yellow light come on when charging? Could be that the fuse for the charging circuit has gone, or on of the screens has been damaged. If it's only 4 months old and not been dropped etc, send it back to Nintendo I'd have thought.

SOURCE: my ds wont charge the orange lite wot turn on and

If your DS Lite's orange light flashes on for a second, then off while it is hooked up to a charger AND the DS Lite green light does not turn on at all, you most likely have a blown the F2 fuse. Of course, once you replace the F2 fuse (involves soldering very tiny parts), there may be other issues that this symptom was hiding (such as the flashing green light and LCDs not turning on) This problem is usually your F2 fuse has blown, here is a link which shows you where the F2 fuse is, however, it is very small and fixing it will involve soldering a new one in place so if your not wanting to do it yourself then i'd send it in for repair.

This video shows you how to take your DS lite apart:

This picture shows you where the F2 fuse is

Hope this helps!

My ds lite just switched off and it was charged

Hi, so if you try switching on the ds lite, nothing at all happens ??
Does the green light flash even if it is for like a split second.If it does then it is more likely top be a blown fuse. If 1 of your screens flicker also, this could be your problem as the ds will not start up with a broken screen. Please advise

Hi my ds lite wont charge it will start up fine then just turn off

When you turn it on do you see either the top or bottom screen flash for a second? This is part of a start up test the system does to make sure the screens are working properly.

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.

Ds Lite Will not charge for longer than 5-10 seconds

It might be a defective battery. Try putting the new battery in a DS lite that you know works. If the other DS works with its own battery, but doesn't with with your battery, then your battery is most likely defective.

Or you could take the battery out of a good DS that turns on and can do everything, and put it in your DS. If your DS still doesn't work, even with the other DS's battery, then your DS might be broken.
