Ds power problems

Thanks for your input, he plugs it in every night, when it powers up ( for the short time that it stays on ) the battery light shows green so i assume that it is fully charged.

    I sure do appreciate your suggestion, however the game has been charged for plenty of hours. Basically it just stop turning on, except for a white screen which comes on and then goes off after about 2 seconds. It won't play a game or do anything.

    I think better than a year. we bought it new from a wholesaler

    no, I don't think they will replace it. I did try putting in a different battery and that didn't fix it either.

Mmm not exactly because if you plug the charger back in it will go orange again, so my guess would be that the ds doesnt stay charged for a long while, you can charge the ds properly when it is shut off but it does needs to be charging at least 8 to 10, you want it to last longer, play a game till the power goes just dnt save anything incase the ds shuts down while saving, otherwise it can corrupt the game and possibly the ds

    what you can do is go onto consoledoctor.co.uk to get the power problem

DS won't turn on


Hi Atticus,

 

I have seen this happen when someone plugs the wrong charging cord up to the DS lite, Is there any chance some one did this to your DS lite.It sounds also as if the battery is not making proper connection.

 

  1. REmove the battery from the compartment
  2. inspect the connector on the battery and where the battery connects to the DSlite.
  3. Wipe thee connections off some way. I suggest some contact cleaner for bith the battery and Battery compartment connections
  4. Try the DS lite again with the battery installed.

I hope this gets you in business  Atticus. Do not Vote until we get it working.  Try this and add a comment to this problem posting. I will answer as soon as I possibly can. Thank you very much for the opportunity to solve your porblem with a DS Lite.

On power up the green light is on for 2 sec.


problem with the main board inside of the DS Lite. Its not staying on with the voltage being provided. To verify this. Plug your DS Lite into a working outlet and see if it stays on.

If it doesn't stay on then take the battery out and only hook up the ac adapter to it and see if it stays on.

At that point if it doesn't stay on, try to use another AC Adapter to see if it stays on, if it doesn't then you know for sure the main board is bad and you would need to get a new ds lite.

My ds power light stays on red all the time its been on charge for ages what is wrong with it. thanks.


Sounds like a battery problem honestly. These batteries have problems with the cells in them going bad. Best way to know if its the battery, try another known working one in your DS. If it charges all the way and turns green, then you know its a problem with your original battery. If you put another known good battery in the DS and it doesn't charge it all the way up, then you know its a problem with the DS.

What is the orange charging light doing? If it is just flashing on, or only staying on or a minuet, that means you need a new battery. The orange light foes on when the battery has been charged to its maximum capacity. After each charge, the capacity is decreased. So if the orange light is on for only a short time, get a new battery.

Power problems with DS Lite


Really sounds like a dead battery. The DS will not work if the battery is bad even when it's plugged in. You get the quick flash of the power light and that's it.

Does not power up or turn on.


I think that this problem is caused by either f1 or f2 fuses being blown. The other problem mentioned where the green light comes on for a second then goes out again is usually caused by the cable connecting the top screen to the motherboard, it is either broken, damaged or incorrectly seated.
