When charging DS lite the light stays orange

The issue is not with the fuses or with the battery. That end is working properly if the light stays a constant orange. The issue is with the other end, how the system powers on. Check the power slider (on mother board) or the L2 inductor (located below the slider). Chances are the tab on the slider has broken off or the L2 slider broke off from the motherboard.

My ds lite turns on but it will not charge. It's not the battery or the charger. I have tested the fuses with a multimeter and both fuses read 0 ohms. The orange charge light does not flash briefly when I...

You can try buying another battery, or by buying a charging station that could just charge your battery (incase its the charger port on the ds thats broken).

My DS lite will not charge. when i plug in the charger the orange charging LED comes on for a second and then turns off. I have ruled out the fuses and power adapter as possible causes.


The charging led description you have given is 90% of the time due to the fuses, I know you say you have ruled them out but I would highly suggest you check them again, unless that is the DS lite has received water damage in which case I have yet to find a solution to this other than to replace the entire motherboard.

If you are unsure of water damage open up the battery compartment and on the bottom lefthand side there is a square piece of paper, if its white with clear pink dots there is no water damage but if the dots are spreading or the square is pink then there is water damage. There is also another square on the motherboard itself located near the headphone port so please check that one too.

I'm sorry I couldn't be much more help than this.

My sond ds lite wont turn on and the charge light

Yes, this problem is normally caused by one or both of the fuses have blown on the logic board.

Unit won't turn on !

This could be due to several things, the main ones being:

1) One of the screens is either not correctly connected or has devlouped a fault... If one of the screens flickers after you switch it on and just before the green light goes out then the screen that doesn't flicker is causing the problem, firstly try reconnecting it and if that doesn't work you will have to replace it, both screens are avaliable for a reasonable fee on ebay, search for either "DS lite top screen" or DS lite bottom screen".

2) Locate the inductor labled "L2" if this is missing then you will need to either solder it back on if you can find it or else you can buy another one again on ebay for a reasonable fee, search for "DS lite L2".

3) If both the above fail then chances are you have blown a fuse, if you can charge the DS then it is not your "F1" fuse in which case you will only need to replace the "F2" fuse, firstly desolder the old fuse and then solder on the replacement fuse, this should solve the issue. If however the charging light stays on for a very brief time (i.e 1-2secs) then you will have to replace the "F1" fuse, locate the "F1" fuse and follow the sames steps stated for the "F2" fuse. These fuses are also found on ebay, search for "ds lite fuse" and buy the quantity you require.

If you don't have access to soldering equipment or are unable to solder these very small parts (i.e fuse dimensions - 1.5 mm x 0.8 mm and the "L2" inductor dimensions - 2.5mm x 1.8mm x 1.8mm) The is a product called wire glue which is avaliable from ebay (located in the USA) which is fantastic as it is a glue with conductive properties.

You may find guides that tell you to "bridge" the fuses and "L2" inductor but I would strongly advise against this, afterall they are there for a reason and just think what damage would have happend if that fuse hadn't have blown.

Here is an image for the location of the fuses, also if you look just under the power switch you will see the "L2" inductor:

I hope this helps and have to say that I accept no responsability for any damage that may occur to your DS lite when following these tips.

I plugged the charger into my ds lite and the light didnt came on

:O) so the pencil idea didn't work? surprising :O)

Is the charger actually working? can you borrow one or test yours on anothers DS?

The charging socket may have become loose and requires re soldering or other damage on the mainboard like one of the fuses. Get it to a repair shop

Ds light have power but no picture when you charge it it light up the orange colour but no picture what is wrong with my ds lite

its possible that one of the internal fuses have blown. there are 2 on the DS/DS lite. these are very small and will require removing and re-soldering. this is very intricate work, and i would suggest sending in for repair.
