No power DS. Only Red Light...

Okay I am kinda new to the World of Troubleshooting damaged DSs, I got this one as a gift from a friend that could not get it to work, the issue is like this.

It wont power on... I havent changed the battery, BUT when i plug it to the charger, the red light comes up for a few seconds and then goes off again.

Battery failure or MainBoard failure? What do you suggest for me to try? I was thinking of putting in a new battery, but it become quite unusual

    I had just finished fitting replacement case/Top screen Boards/Ribbon into Silver DS (fat) this weekend. I tested the unit before closing and both screens powered up fine.. After screwing down the battery cover, there is now NO LIGHTS at all, even on Charge. What can i do to test this further? ( i re-opend the case, checked connections, and found the battery nut still attached.. what could it be>?

    I have a Nintendo DS lite. When I connect the power cord, the yellow light goes on for one second then goes out. How do I find the fuse or the area to place a solder bridge on the mainboard? Thanks

  • Alen Oct 02, 2008

    OK, I found the little surface mount fuse (labeled F1) adjacent to the power connector on the board. I checked it with my ohm-meter and it checks out good. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Hi Drakex, it sounds exactly like the problem I had when I changed the screen on two ds's, my mainboard short circuited and blew the fuse, so it may not be a mainboard failure, you can actually solder a bridge across it, not for the faint hearted!, however, remember the fuse is there for a reason, so use the finest fuse wire you can find and bear in mind I can't be held responsible for the battery melting afterwards!!!!. There is a very in depth article on how to bridge the fuse, if you want it I can send you the link.

Olympus ds-2400 voice recorder is saving files as ds2 - how do we convert them to dss


The DS-2400 were one of the first Olympus DVRs to use the new DSS Pro (.ds2) format.

We later discovered that you will need to update the firmware to in order to have it revert to the standard DSS format (.dss)

You will need the DS-2400_FirmwareUpdate_DssClassic to make this happen. All certified dealers will have access to this firmware update.

Stay classy,

Lost driver disk and key for Olympus DS 330 dictaphone


Try logging into Olympus support. The site is a little difficult to navigate but go in through the professional digital dictaphones and then into archived (or older) models until you find the DS 330. Follow the links to software downloads and you should be able to download the DSS suite and all updates. The DSS suite automatically recognizes most Olympus DSS models. If you will "save" the downloads first, you can burn them to a disk so that you will have a back up copy

Convert ds2 file to dss


Best option is to get the person using the recorder which creates the .ds2 files, which is likely to be an Olympus DS-5000, to set the recorder to record audio in "classic mode" which will produce .dss files. Here is a YouTube video on how to set the DS-5000 to record in classic mode.

Nintendo DS Lite Top Screen -Stopped workign completely


I have a solution! I am a mechanical engineering student at Purdue. My little brother spilled water on his DS lite and the screens had little weird warbly spots on it, but it still worked. He asked me if I could fix it.
I bought replacement screens for it and went to work tearing it apart. Once I got the screens replaced, I put it back together and tried it. It worked perfectly, but then something happened and it stopped altogether. After that, when I would slide the power switch on, the light blinked on and the bottom screen turned on. Then, the unit quickly powered-off and that was the end of it.
After a lot of research I found what the problem was. It was discovered that a lot of DSs were "Bricking," or stopped working, same problems as you guys have. You need to reroute some sections of the motherboard to bypass defunct safety mechanisms. If you would like more information, please email me at charlyoak@msn.com. As each case can vary. I have repaired a large number of DSs and DS lites. Chances are, I can help you too!
