Battery Not Charging

What happened to my NDS Lite? When I connect it to the charger not the original because here in the Philippines, we use 220V, charging indicator is no longer ON. Is it possible that the battery is already damaged?

Does not power on. Does not appear to charge up either.

try removing the battery. Then plug the charger in and see if if ti turns on. if it does that means your battery may have gone bad. if it still does not turn on the charger or the DS may have gone bad :/ hope this helps :)

NDS Lite Turns on but then after a few seconds turns itself off

Check the battery is fully charged, its always worth fully charging a battery before you start soyou can route that out.

Check the cable is fully in for the bottem screen, if it is not in the ribbon connector all the or at an angle somtimes this can happen, while checking that you might as well check the other cables as well just incase. let me how it goes.

My NDS lite power cannot be turned on and turns off randomly

The problem is that your son dropped it. This damages both the inside and outside of the DS. I would suggest contacting your nearest video game store to see if they can fix it.

Nintendo ds lite won't charge just the red light to say battery is low my nintendo ds lite wont charge it always says its red

Did you attatchthe charge cord into the back of the Ds and attatch it to the wall? If you did and it didnt work, then I suggest getting it looked at, as this is usually the less expensive way of fixing it.

Ds lite not working

i had same problem ( bought a faulty nds off ebay and would charge but nothing when powering up, not even a blink of green light) problem is a component called a L2 its an inductor 33uH in case SMD 1007. its situated dirrectly under the power switch but they are prone to fall off when nds is dropped ect. you need to resolder it on (very tricky). give your nds a shake to see if you can hear it rattelling about. be carefull when opening your nds not to lose the part (its very small, about 4mm long 2mm wide) GOOD LUCK

Ds lite charging lite comes on but when i press power button nothing happens

Are you leaving the DS charge until the light comes off? Remember that there are two likes too, one for charging and one for power. If you're just charging for some random period of time (lets say... One hour) then your Battery isn't going to be fully charged. The best way to ensure that your DS Lite is charged is to leave it charge until the charge light turns off. You can play your DS Lite while you are charging (I do it all the time), but it just means that you're just running off of the outlet.

A good test is to charge it fully (until the charge light comes off), unplug the charger cord (Make sure it's secured tightly to your DS while charging), then play for a little bit, your light should be a normal color (green).

If you cannot even play by using the outlet, then you need to
find a charger cord that actually works (You may need to send in the charger for replacement). If the same thing happens with 2 different batteries (assuming that you have two official Nintendo batteries).

TIP: Also run your fingers across the Charger cord. You're going to get a slight friction burn from the rubber, but you're going to get all of the kinks out of the wire in the cord. My charger cord had a similar problem (did not charge all the way, only charged until I moved the DS) but when I ran my fingers across it (pinching) it worked again.

Also check the pins in both charger cords, charging will not work if one pin is missing, nor if any are bent.

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.

Ds light not coming on and charger not working

When I hooked up my DS with the charger the orange light would flicker for only a few seconds then turn off.

I found out that if you KEEP THE DS ON WHILE HOOKED UP the DS will charge. Although, because you are playing/DS is on the charging will go extremely slowly.

Best option, and what I did, was was just return/exchange it. I just did that today.
