My ds wont turn on all i do is plug in the charger then flick the switch really fast then the light turns on for half a second then stops wat do i do I came home one day from a trip, I decided to use my DS...

Do any screens flash?

I would say its a fuse / grounding out / or battery is destroyed.

If you can, try a different battery.. Has your battery and/or DS had any previous water damage?

2001 Lexus RX 300 Power Problems

This sounds like the alternator itself may need a rebuild. the dial rods are bad. its causing uneven charging and current flow. that explains the flickering and low power in the radar sockets plugs. i would also do a complete wiring check for strand breakage.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

The power -inverter board probably needs an overhaul.
I redo many of these.
If the screen was pinkish or flickering before it finally got to this point, it is possible that a bulb has gone bad.

Does not come on

Maybe the battery connectors are going bad? Try moving the battery around within the battery slot and see how it reacts when turned on. (Make sure you take any game out of the cartridge slot or else you might lose save data from it quickly turning on and off.)
