Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
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
Can you post that link, I also have this problem, 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.
