You'll have to take your DS apart to make sure that the battery hasn't exploded. Even if the DS says the battery is good that's not always true.

If the battery appears to be good you might want to send in your DS for repair. If the battery seems to be broken you can buy a new one on Ebay or anywhere else on the internet.

Good luck,

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.

Ds lite

Normally, it should turn off by holding the power switch over for a couple seconds. If that doesn't work, the switch may be broken internally. You could try taking out the battery (though this probably isn't too good for it) or wait for the battery to die, then charge it and see if it does it again. If not, you may have to get it repaired.
