You may have a bad fuse. There are two fuses on the ds main board. F2 is the fuse from the battery. If it is bad the ds will not charge or power up when you turn it on. F2 is next to the battery contacts on the mainboard. F1 is the fuse for the power supply. I am not really sure were it is located. I had to jump the F2 on one the other day. Do a search on google for nintendo ds fuses. That should come up with some pics. You have to disassemble the ds and do some very tight solder work to repair the fuses. Not for the faint of heart.

The red LED indicates low power. When the DS is charging an orange LED should be on and the DS can be switched on, giving a second green light. If you tried charging it but the orange LED did not come on or only came on for a few seconds then the battery has not charged. The charger may be faulty or the power connector on the DS may be faulty. You need to try another charger. If another charger does not work then the DS is faulty and needs repair. It could be the power connector or the battery or some other fault inside.
If the amber LED comes on to indicate that the battery is charging then the battery should be fully charged within 3 hours. If the DS does not switch on after charging then the battery may be faulty. It can be removed by opening the cover on the bottom of the DS.
You should try and find a friend with a DS who will let you try their charger and battery in your DS.
If the DS itself is faulty it will probably be uneconomical to repair. If this is the case then try selling it on ebay as a faulty DS.

My ds will no longer charge . the orange light comes on for a second then goes out . ive tried the battery in another ds and it works fine ive also put a good battery in it but have the same problem any...


Try another ac adapter for your DS, if the battery charges then you know its a faulty ac adpater thats the culprit, if the battery doesn't charge with another ac adpater then that means the main board inside of the DS is bad and at that point if your system is not under warranty then you would need to replace the system.

DS is stuck in charge mode when plugged in.


Your DS may have a problem reading the battery gauge, and the DS will only let the charger do its thing for a period of time. Then, if it is still connected, it may burst more charge in. This means that your DS is acting up, and your battery may have a rare (and not harmful to the DS) malfunction.

My ds power light stays on red all the time its been on charge for ages what is wrong with it. thanks.


Sounds like a battery problem honestly. These batteries have problems with the cells in them going bad. Best way to know if its the battery, try another known working one in your DS. If it charges all the way and turns green, then you know its a problem with your original battery. If you put another known good battery in the DS and it doesn't charge it all the way up, then you know its a problem with the DS.

NINTENDO DS LITE WON'T CHARGE OR POWER ON


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.

Ds lite suddenly stopped working


The orange light goes off when the battery has been charged to its highest capacity. After every charge, the batteries capacity is decreased. Get a new battery, that should do it.

Ds Lite Will not charge for longer than 5-10 seconds


It might be a defective battery. Try putting the new battery in a DS lite that you know works. If the other DS works with its own battery, but doesn't with with your battery, then your battery is most likely defective.

Or you could take the battery out of a good DS that turns on and can do everything, and put it in your DS. If your DS still doesn't work, even with the other DS's battery, then your DS might be broken.

Ds lite charging lite comes on but when i press power button nothing happens


Are you leaving the DS charge until the light comes off? Remember that there are two likes too, one for charging and one for power. If you're just charging for some random period of time (lets say... One hour) then your Battery isn't going to be fully charged. The best way to ensure that your DS Lite is charged is to leave it charge until the charge light turns off. You can play your DS Lite while you are charging (I do it all the time), but it just means that you're just running off of the outlet.

A good test is to charge it fully (until the charge light comes off), unplug the charger cord (Make sure it's secured tightly to your DS while charging), then play for a little bit, your light should be a normal color (green).

If you cannot even play by using the outlet, then you need to
find a charger cord that actually works (You may need to send in the charger for replacement). If the same thing happens with 2 different batteries (assuming that you have two official Nintendo batteries).

TIP: Also run your fingers across the Charger cord. You're going to get a slight friction burn from the rubber, but you're going to get all of the kinks out of the wire in the cord. My charger cord had a similar problem (did not charge all the way, only charged until I moved the DS) but when I ran my fingers across it (pinching) it worked again.

Also check the pins in both charger cords, charging will not work if one pin is missing, nor if any are bent.
