DS Lite: Problems powering the screens

I have a ds lite that powers up, shows a green light, but fails to show anything on the either of the screens. Is there a connection that might be loose?

Ds lite green power on, screens black

Sounds like the processor has gone on the mainboard.
Using r4 or similar card? if so these burn out the board sometimes.

Well one things for sure if you dont play with it the ds wouldnt just refuse to play, have u dropped it on has any water been splashed on it? If you have then thats what has caused the problem so go and get it fixed, if you havnt got any water on it or dropped it then your DS must be broken im sure you can get it fixed, if not get a new one.

Hope this helps!!!!

RE:nintendo DS lite power light comes on but both screens stay dark?solution


This is a problem with the cpu on the systemboard. I've seen this problem many times if the DS Lite is felt to the ground. The contacts of the cpu are very fragile. The DS Lite turns on, green led available, even charche is working bot nothing else. Repair of this problem is almost impossible. The only thing you can do is send it to Nintendo.

You can test if it is the cpu by removing the bottom of the DS Lite and put the battery on te contacts.
Press firmly on slot 1 (the aluminium cover) and turn the DS Lite on. If you got a picture on the screens then you know it for sure. The cpu is located under slot 1 and by pressing on de top of the slot you are pressing possible loose contacts back on de systemboard.

If it is not working then the cpu is to musch damaged.

Let us know what you've found with this solution.

DS LITE ? Green light stays on but screens or sound do not come on !!

I have some motherboards of ds lite with the same problem. If you twists a lillte the motherboard near the power switch, the system powers up without a problem. When you removes torsion, the ds freezes. perhaps there are problems with some weldings. I don't know the real solution.

Nintendo DS Lite will not power up

This can sometimes be caused by the single smt capacitor on the board in the top half that the screen cables plug in to. Try replacing the cap or the entire board.
