When i turn my ds lite on the touch screen blinks and shuts off

either a fuse has gone or the screen is sorting out on the motherboard. check youtube for instructions on how to fix fuses, or if you have had a new screen put some insulation tape on the back of it.
Other possible causes can be a fault with the top screen so investigate tat too. the ribbon cables can tear

My ds will not turn on


It sounds like one of you're screens has broken. What you have discribed is generally what happens one either the top or bottom LCD screen has broken.

If it is the top screen the bottom screen will flash for 1/2 a second and the DS turns off.

If it is the bottom screen the DS should still turn on but with no reaction from the screens. (the Ds will shut down immediatley after turning on)

My ds just crashes--shuts down--when playing. Is

The same thing happened to my DS that was 3 years old. But at a point it didn't even turn on. The top screen made a quick blink then it turned back off automatically. I suggest you just get a new DS (I got a DSi) because a new battery is VERY expensive.

Answer:It is definitely the battery, though.

Your DS Lite is damaged and needs to be sent to Nintendo for repair.

Nintendo will likely tell you the unit is beyond repair and must be replaced.

If you want to avoid the middle man, you can always purchase a new DS Lite from your local electronics retailer.

Nintendo DS Lite won't turn on

My kids did the same thing. What I did to get it to work was to push back on the top and hold it turn it on. If it comes on then turns off after you let it go get 2 rubber bands and put the 1st. one on the top left down to the bottom right. The 2nd. one goes from the top right right to the bottom left. Then keep turning it on while moving the top to find the sweet spot.

Nintendo DS Lite shuts off randomly.

I'm a certified electronic technician and I must say NDS internal screen ribbon connectors are junk! Basically The ribbon connectors are so sketchy that it is not recommended to ever unclip them, if you do there's a good chance it will ever work again once reconnected due to how the connector pins slightly crimp into the ribbon pads.

When a NDS boots up the the onboard firmware constantly tests the LCD screen connections, if there is a break in the connection the NDS will shut down. If your NDS randomly turns off, fails to boot, or powers of when you move the hinge it is most likely the ribbon (flex film) or ribbon connector has failed. The only option to to replace the affected LCD screen.
