    charge light stays orange for 1/2 second then goes out
    have tried 2 different DS wall warts and 1 car charger
    removed battery and placed into known good DS Lite and unit charges

    We have the same problem. The charge light comes on for a while when it is plugged in, but the unit will not turn on. It is only about 6 months old.

My ds lite won't charge.. the orange light appeared blinked


We had this problem with a brand new DS Lite...turns out it was a bad charger. If you have access to another charger, try that first. Good luck!

I have a DS Lite that will not charge I have just replaced the battery and when I charge it the light goes off to say charged then when turned on the light goes red instead of green it is as if the charger...


The red light is an indicator that the battery is near dead...not that it is charging.
It sounds like your battery has become faulty. The replacement process isn't bad...just a screw or two on the underside of the unit. And the battery isn't too costly. You should be able to buy another one online for as little as $8 + shipping and handling.

Putin in charger orange light flashes then goes off an doesnt cha


Your DS is either fully charged or the battery got damaged/wet. When you play the DS, is the light red or flash red? If it does, then the problem is with your battery. http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/dslite_repair_home.jsp
Click on your country, then "System and Game Problems," then "Power and Battery Charging Problems."
Hope this helped.

My nintendo ds lite stopped working but does charge


The LCD screens may be dead. Ask a mechanic to change the screens.

Or maybe it is about the hinge. the cables may be damaged.

Did you spill anything on the DS??

Ds power problems


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

Ds lite ac wall charger


When you first get the DS it will have a bit if charge on it but only a few hours worth. When the DS charges it usally comes up with a orange/red ish light then that goes out about a few hours later when its charged. ad if you want to chek if it is charging correcly turn the DS on whilst it is charging and the little battery simble in the top right corner should show the battery carging.

You never want to play the DS while it's charging, if constsntly persisted it can cause a form of battery leak.

IMPORTANT: Don't charge the DS until it dies on you completely!

When charging the DS the system will display a red light to show it's at its lowest energy, the time it takes to fully charge a DS can take up to 2-3 hours. In the second hour of charging the light will appear green but you don't want to disturb it until the light goes off. ( showing it's energy is full )
