    I have the same issue. F1 and F2 check fine; no bad solder joints; system charges but no system boot. Is there a system reset on these units? Thanks for any help.

This can sometimes be caused by the single smt capacitor on the board in the top half that the screen cables plug in to. Try replacing the cap or the entire board.

My DS Lite when powered up will show the green light, it then gets brighter and then the system shuts down.
I have checked and replaced the fuses and checked the cables just in case but still the problem remains.

Can anyone help ?

Send it somewhere to get it fixed, or replace it with a DS Lite (it's better).

Ds lite battery wont charge i have charged it overnight but nothing the green light goes on but that is it


Hi,

If the green light is turning on and the screens are staying blank it is a problem with he L2 fuse on the motherboard (located just below the power button).

This can be replaced if you are handy with a soldering iron. If not drop it to a local repair shop it can be fixed for about €20.

Battery is fully charged but it still wont power up no lights when plugged in to charge


Hook up only the ac adapter to the DS to see if it turns on. If it does then we know the ac adapter works. We know the battery got fully charged but the system isn't turning on with the battery that is fully charged up.

I would say your battery is defective but you won't really know until you fully charge up a known good working battery and test it out.

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.

Nintendo ds lite wont turn back on


Not sure if this will help you, but my son dropped his on to a concrete pavement and it wen black, the charge lite would only come up for one second then go out when I plugged it in to charge. Just for fun, I had a spare battery and changed it. In this instance, the system started working again.

Not sure how this can happen, but dropping it on the floor seems to have killed the battery that was in it. A simple replacement battery did the trick for me.

Good Luck in fixing yours
