I'd suggest removing and then re-inserting the battery (this should at least switch the power off).
Is the power switch loose? If so it's been broken and needs replacing (not an easy job).
Alternately it could just be stuck in sleep mode which happens when the DS is closed while powered on but should awaken when re-opened.

My son's DS Lite stopped working last night. The unit was working fine and the battery light turned red so he put it on to charge. After about an hour the light was green so he tried to start the console...


It sounds like the battery is dead. You can order a replacement battery direct from Nintendo at http://store.nintendo.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?productId=108205

Ds light green,dim green, amber then off when power is turned on


Sounds like you need to send it in for repair. I had sent my console to VideoGame911.com and they repaired mine at a great cost and got it back at the end of the week. Give them a try, they are cheaper than a manufacturer. Good luck!

My son's DS Lite won't come on either. It is


well repairing is not ez and the issue maybe worse then you can handle. so i say check ur warranty as that will cover it, ur warranty is usually threw the store you bought it from.

Second call nintendo as they will be able to actually repair the product, im sure they will charge you, but they will also put a guarantee the repair. good luck

My son's DS Lite won't come on. The green light


Last time I had this I had to change the motherboard, tried for hours to find the fault. motherboards are about £50 if you have to resort to it. Make sure you are buying an original nintendo and not a copy

My son's DS is frozen. We bought a generic DC


Has probably corrupted the DS's memory, small though it is. Replace the memory to unfreeze. Alternatively get angry and stamp on it. (2nd method worked on my psp, though not advised.)

Unit not powering up


You have a defective LCD screen that makes a short circuit (thats the flashing green led)
Mostly the upper LCD screen is the problem.
You cab replace the LCD screen by buying one (ebay) and use a manual found on youtube but you need to have the skills. If not, please find someone that can repair it for you
