Yes. The switch has broken and is replaceable. However I wouldn't recommend you do it unless you've done this before. DS Lites are easy to damage further when taking them apart. It's a great system but is easily broken beyond fixing. Look at all the posts on here from people putting new shells on and now the system won't boot up, broken ribbon cable connectors, etc. If it's under a year old contact Nintendo and they will repair it for free.

    Yes, you should be fine mailing it to Nintendo. I wouldn't send it anywhere else for repair. Buy postal insurance just to be safe.

My power switch slides back and forth very loosely and won't turn on can i fix this myself?


yes if you can solder. New switches are about £1. Make sure the new switch doesn't overhang the motherboard or you may break it again.
Check you tube for instruction videos
If you can't fix it youself then you may consider removing the back of the DS, removing the on button and putting it back together so you can operate the switch with a toothpick.

Nintendo ds lite that shuts off unexpectedly


Hi again,

Ive been doing a bit of research and it seems that if the DS lite has had a knock the black coil near the power switch could have been knocked loose which would make the DS lite switch off randomly. If you want to see if thats the problem take the DS lite apart (for a dismantle guide click here) and check to see if its loose... its the black round thing with 100 written on it near the power switch. If its loose then heat up the solder round it and that should reset it.

If thats not it check the L2 transistor is firmly in place, again if its loose heat the solder and reset it.

Another thing you can check is the power switch make sure its solid and doesnt wobble internally i.e. the black moveable part only moves the way its supposed to, as well as checking the solder is solid.

Left key on my DS lite isnt working


There are a few different things which may have happened. The spring may have popped loose. The actual button itself may be loose from the logic board. If you are not under Warranty then recommend contacting SBL Games by clicking here.

Broken power switch


Look on the well known auction sites. Some are selling the switch. Ask them if they could also replace it for you. I could do it for you but I'm in Europe, so a little to far
