Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
This is down to a number of possabilities:
1) Give the Battery terminals a bit of a clean up by either using an alcohol solution such as white spirit or scratch them clean with a small sharp knife or scalpel.
2) Try another battery - Rather than going ahead and buying a new one first see if you can borrow one off a friend or family member for a few seconds.
3) Try a different charger - Again, rather than going ahead and buying a new one first see if you can borrow one off a friend or family member for a few seconds.
4) Your fuse/s may have blown - You need to have fairly good soldering skills as the fuse you will be replacing is tiny (1.6mm x 0.8mm). You can buy the fuse you need from ebay (do a search for ds lite fuse). Take your ds lite apart and locate the "f1" fuse (here is a link to the pic of the fuse location: http://m3wiki.com/index.php/Image:Usgcpu01fuses.jpg ). Remove the blown fuse by de soldering it and replace it with the new fuse and solder it into place, once this is done you can put your ds back together and test if the charger now works... if it does work but the ds will not switch on you will have to also replace f2 (also shown on the picture).
If you want a more detailed explaination for the replacement of the fuses do a google search for "ds lite fuse replacement2 and you should get plenty of guides show up.
Some people say just to bridge this fuse if its blown but i'm strongly against this, the fuse is there for a reason and if you bypass it more serious damage can occur and that will be far more costly and dangerous.
Hope this helps and like to say I accept no responsibility for any damage that may occur whilst using my advice.
