Question about Nintendo DS Console

DS Powering On

One of our DS's will not turn on. I have plugged in the recharge cord, and let it charge overnight. When I try to turn it on, the green light comes on briefly, and the bottom screen flickers, but then the game turns off.

I have taken the battery out of this DS, and put the battery in a new DS, and that DS works. I have also taken the battery from a DS that works, and put it in the malfunctioning DS, and it does the same thing--green light comes on and bottom screen flickers, but nothing happens.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, if the bottom screen briefly comes on with a white screen. There is a issue with the top screen, it is either the top screen itself or if there is damage to the hinge it will more than likely be the cheaper option the ribbon cable that threads though the hinge to the top screens PCB board.

Green light goes out after 10 sec no screen


1. Check battery - try recharging it overnight
2. Check integrity of AC charger if it still working properly. Or you can try charging the psp overnight using USB charger.

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.

My ds lite is broken


How does it charge? If the orange charge light stays on for only a short time and than turns off, you may need a new battery. Rechargeable batteries lose their capability of holding a charge. I would suggest trying a friend's battery and see if it resolves the problem.

Ds lite battery wont charge i have charged it overnight but nothing the green light goes on but that is it


Hi,

If the green light is turning on and the screens are staying blank it is a problem with he L2 fuse on the motherboard (located just below the power button).

This can be replaced if you are handy with a soldering iron. If not drop it to a local repair shop it can be fixed for about €20.

Ds lite green light is on but both screens are black and no sound


For GBA games the green light is meant to stay on. The orange light will stay on as long as its recharging. It will turn off when its fully recharged or when you unplug it

My son's nintendo ds has been charging for a day now, but it


The battery is probably completely drained. Rechargeable batteries have a certain lifetime in which they can be charged to. The charge limit for a Nintendo DS is approx. 500 charges. When you pass this limit the battery will no longer work. Your best option is to buy a replacement battery at http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/
After a year or more a rechargeable battery won't last as long as it did when it was new.

Wont turn on


The orange charge light turns on when you plug it in and goes off after a short time? If so, it may be a problem with your battery. Does the power light flash green when you turn it on? As batteries are recharged more, they slowly lose their capability to hold a charge. i would suggest borrowing a battery from a friend, if it works, you need a new battery.

It can't be recharged


The DS's battery has a limit to how many times you charge it,but then again the charger's wire inside it might be disconnected.
Try to buy a new DS charger and see if its the wire,if its not then try to call nintendo to see if they might be able to replace the battery(for a fee).

My son's nintendo ds won't come on even though it is fully charged. The light turns green then it just turns off.


This situation is most likely battery related.When a rechargeable battery is used, each charge, the capacity is slightly decreased. I would strongly recommend getting a new battery.
