Re: Ds Lite Issue

Either you can take it to where you got it from and let them have a look at it and send it to nintendo or buy a new ds lite.

Good Luck!

My ds lite wont power on how can i fix it?

One of you're screens is broken or the F2 fuse has blown.

Check youtube for a video on "how to check my DS lite F2 fuses" there are several available that give step by step guidance on how to do this.

Having checked these (and replaced blown ones) and you're screens are still not working then it is a screen that has blown.

If the bottom screen flashes for a split second when you turn it on then it is you're TOP screen that has blown and needs to be replaced. If it doen't flash then it is you're bottom screen that is broken and needs to be replaced.

Ds lite flashes on but fuses are ok

One or both your screens have blown.

Try removing the motherboard from the screens and attach the battery the green light should turn on and stay on.

Now attach the lower screen and turn on. If the screen is ok the screen and green light will flash and then turn off. (if the screen doesn't flash the bottom screen is you're problem and will have to be replaced)

If this happens the problem is then you're top screen which you will have to replace.

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.

My DS lite is turning on then off

How did you break off the charging light?

Anyway, you probably need a new battery. The battery loses it's capability to hold a charge after each time it is charged so all you need is a new battery.

Red light and screen flashes white

99% sure you have a broken flatcable that is going to the upper screen.
Only solution is to replace the screen (cable is attached to it and cannot be replaced seperate)

Power issues

Have you charged the battery? It sounds like the battery is completely dead. If charging the battery doesn't work, or if the battery just doesn't want to charge, you should replace the battery. New ones are available directly from Nintendo, and you can install them yourself.
