Re: Power

The backlight is dead. Ihad the same problem with my original DS. This can be repaired but you will need to find a part source for a ds light backlight, try ebay. A lot of parts for newer consoles are hard to find. Even for me and I know how to repair a lot of it.Or try replacing the backlight with LED's

DS LITE will not power on

The way the problem is described it sounds like 1 of the fuses on the logic has blown.

There are 2 fuses on the logic board 1 neer the top of the top of the board under the charging socket and 1 neer the bottem of the game socket (slot 1) when the back cover is removed.

To change them is not an easy task, youll need to be good with a soldering iron as the componants are put on the pcb by an automount mechine, so they are very small but it is possible.

here is a diagram of where the fuses are placed and roughly how small they are:

DS lite green light comes on, top screen flash,then switches off

Check L2 near the power switch on your DS mobo. That part usually get loosen or taken out when you drop your DS. And usually you can recover it when dismantling your DS.

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.

The system powers on, then performs a system check. The DS is finding some sort of error More than likely the top screen was damaged. I've been told that the screen that flickers is usually the good screen. The bad one doesn't flicker because it's damaged. You can replace the top screen yorself (if you're fairly handy), or you can pay a professional to do it. You can get new screens from for around 10US dollars, with free shipping. You can also find videos about how to change out the top screen on youtube. Hope this helps
