DS Lite Will Not Power On

There is a possibility that your battery has developed a short circuit or is so bad that it pulls down the charge voltage on the charger. You are therefore left starved of a power and therefore no function.
If possible, disconnect the battery and run the DS on the charger power alone. If the DS starts to work, I suggest replacing the battery.

Why does dslite have no power?

Make sure the ribbon cables or the screens are plugged in. one for each screen and one for the touch screen (i think the touch screen is the one thats causing your problem) its small and comes out easily. please wright back if it works

Went on vacation and left the PS3 powercord unplugged. Now it doesn't work, could it be the cable?

Hey there, a couple of things to verify here to get your ps3 back up and running. Do not worry about leaving your ps3 the whole week with the powercord unplugged, this is OK and should't have affected anything negatively.
1) Make sure that the powercord is well plugged on both ends: ps3 AND in the wall.
2) Make sure that the SWITCH is turned on (in the back of the ps3, there is also a POWER switch I/O). Turn it on by pushing on the I.
3) If it's still unpowered, try plugging the ps3 itself somewhere else in the house (to make sure it's not the power outlet)

Nothing show up on tv screen after plugging in the cables. the HDMI and the AV cables too.

Hi, try the following
1 using the av lead and not the hdmi so plug the av lead into your tv and make sure your tv is on the correct input
2 turn the ps3 on at the back
3 now press and hold the on button down until the ps3 switches itself back off
4 then press the on button again, doing this resets the video mode from hd back to standard av so once you have done this you should have a picture on the tv, if not check your on the correct input

if you have done the above and it still dont give you any video than please let me know then ill do my best to assist you further ok

please rate this solution, thanks

Won't switch on or open

Hi tell me what happens when you switch it on do you get any lights light up try unplugging the mains lead and plugging it back in make sure you push it in quite hard
then switch it on and see what happens
when you switch the plug on the big box on the power lead should give you an orange light this should change color when you switch the xbox on so check this happens.

let me know what the xbox does if it does anything at all then i can assist you further ok

Won't turn on, switches itself off after a few seconds

Check that the main power switch on the system rear is turned on. Check the AC power cord is securely inserted in the system and the electrical outlet. Also check the connecting power cord is not damaged/bent and the connections in the power plug are OK
