    Power light comes on but neither screen works. Nintendo DS Lite. Once when trying it out the screens came on but then went off again and nothing since. I suspect it has had some vigorous handling by my young son but nothing is visibly damaged.

Thanks Lamylamb. I went and checked out the slots as you suggested but unfortunately there was nothing jammed. I have since sent it off to Nintendo and they have replied with a quote for a new circuit board AU$95. I think their service was quite efficient. It seems that young son was too rough with the device and broke it.
Thanks for your help.

Make sure nothing is jammed into the game slots!!!! this will cause it to cross, and shutdown. also make sure u switch it on without the game inserted. and try different game card.


goodluck, lamby

What color is the power light when the system shuts off?

    Red: If the power light is red, or flashing red, when the system turns off, then the system's battery needs to be charged.

    Blue: If the power light is blue when the system turns off, then there appears to be a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.

I understand you have replaced the battery... make sure its a genuine nintendo battery and charge. Also the port could be damaged or the ac adapter... take a good look at both for damages.
The port should not wiggle on the DS and should be solid.

    Red: If the power light is red, or flashing red, when the system turns off, then the system's battery needs to be charged.


    Blue: If the power light is blue when the system turns off, then there appears to be a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.

    If the orange recharge indicator light blinks while the system is plugged in and charging, then it is likely that the battery is not installed properly.

    If you have ensured that the battery is installed properly but the orange light still blinks, check to make sure that the battery is a licensed by Nintendo. The only licensed Nintendo DSi battery will have the model number "TWL-003" (Nintendo DSi) or "UTL-003" (Nintendo DSi XL) and will display Nintendo's logo.

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.

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.

This sounds like a battery problem. The best way to test this is to remove the battery and then power the laptop up with just the power cord plugged in but no battery. If the computer boots then the battery is bad you will need a replacement. Also try letting the battery charge for a day. Be sure that the charging light is coming on when you have it plugged in.
