    Hi, the charge LED stays on all the time. I wonder if the fault is a blown fuse? Apparently, there are 2 fuses in the unit related to the charging circuit. I've seen a video on Youtube where the guy uses a "circuit writer" conductive pen to short across the blown fuses. This seems to work, but I question the value in eliminating the overload protection offered by the fuses. This may cause further damage later on. Or will it? What would be the side effects of bridging the fuse?
    Your advice welcome.

Hi,

You can temporary bridge the fuse to see if that is your problem. There are not 2 fuses connected to the charging but infct just the one the "F1" fuse, the other fuse you are refering to is the "F2" fuse which is the fuse that allows power to the unit. This is a common naievety made by people who often have limited or little understanding of the DS lites circuitry.

I would NEVER perminately bridge a fuse... It is there for a reason, another naieve move by a lot of people. If you consider the fact that you can buy a replacement fuse on ebay for under £5, or much lower if you know the fuse details (SMD Fuse 0603 1a).

As I said earlier by all means temporarily bridge the fuse just to test if that is the issue, if it resolves the problem then you know all you need to do is replace it with a new one.

If thats not the resolution to the issue get back to me and I can try and help you further.

Also if you click on my name it will take you to my profile page, on there you will see a list of guides I have written. Take a look at the one I have written about Fuse replacements for the DS, I have added clear pictures to help locate which fuse is where.

Let me know what you find out and if it is indeed the fuse.

Regards,
SOD69

Wii randomly stopped working, wont turn on


Wii Console Turns On, But Has No Power Light Situation:
  • The power LED on the system does not come on, but the system still powers on and plays

Information:
If the Wii Console is still working normally, it is likely that the power LED is broken.
This issue will remain limited to the Power LED, and will not get any worse.
Unless the system is having other problems, continue using the console regularly for a few weeks to determine whether this interferes with the enjoyment of game play.

Situation Not Resolved:
If, after using the system for awhile, the Power LED not coming on is too distracting, the Wii Console does carry a one-year warranty.
We are happy to inspect and, if necessary, fix the system at no charge within the warranty period. To start the repair process, click here.

I was using my psp while it was charging and the charging light turned off, so i naturally assumed that it was fully charged. But a few minutes later the battery died and it wont charge when i plug it in....


Have you tried to remove the battery and put it back in and try to turn it on. Try removing the battery and putting the charger in and starting the PSP. If it starts, it might be the battery. If it doesn't, it's either the plugin for the charger or the PSP is just dead. If it does start with the charger, try putting the battery back in, if it charges awesome. If it doesn't the battery might be dead.

Remotes wont work light up but wont stay on ,hit


The red button, is a sync button and not a reset button. You can try resyncing your wii remotes to your wii follow these steps:

  1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.

  2. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up.

  3. Press and release the SYNC button on the inside of the SD Card compartment on the console. Press and release the SYNC button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote.

  4. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
You must have batteries in when pressing the red sync button on the wii remote, if your using the wii remote charger system, you must remove it and use batteries until this step is done

Hope this helps. Owen

My wii remotes wont pick up signal blue lights flash then just go back out again


Hi, check the batter level and then try re-synching the remote's.

Here's instructions for both:

f4bc8924da.gif A fresh set of alkaline batteries should last, depending on amount and type of use, up to 35 hours. This can vary greatly based on certain factors, such as Wii Remote Speaker Volume, Rumble, battery quality and age, and type of game being played.

Important Note: If you are using rechargeable batteries, the only type of battery recommended are Nickel Metal Hydride batteries. When it comes to using rechargeable batteries, you must follow manufacturer guidelines for safety and proper usage. Failure to do so could cause damage to the Wii Remote and void the warranty.

There are two ways to check the Wii Remote's battery levels:

  • Remove the battery cover and press the Red "Sync" button. The number of lights flashing indicates the Wii Remote's battery strength. Four flashing lights indicates full strength, with one light flashing indicating the lowest level.

    rtemagicc_wiiremotebatterycover.gif.gif

    or

  • Use the HOME Menu to check battery level of each Wii Remote:

    1. Press the HOME Button on a Wii Remote that is synchronized with the Wii console.

      rtemagicc_installation_02.gif.gif
    2. Select the Wii Remote Settings option from the Home Menu.

      rtemagicc_homesmall_02.gif.gif
    3. The battery level of all synced Wii Remotes is displayed along the bottom. Four bars indicates a full charge, with one being the lowest charge.

      rtemagicc_wiiremotesynchotm1_02.gif.gif

55851daefd.gif Note: Make sure you have placed batteries in the Wii Remote.

  1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
  2. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up, and press the SYNC button just below the batteries. The Player LED will blink.
  3. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console and press the SYNC button on the inside of the compartment.
  4. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 to 4).

This procedure must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to your system.

I hope this helps

Wii remotes will not stay on


1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
2. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up.
3. Remove the battery pack & install regular batteries.
4. On the back of the Wii remote press the SYNC button just below the batteries. The Player LED will blink.
5. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console and press the SYNC button on the inside of the compartment.
6. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
7. Quickly remove the batteries and reinsert your Battery Pack.
8. Return to Step 2 for each other remote.

You may run into this issue any time your battery pack has a 0% charge left in it for a duration. Try to keep them charged to prevent it from occuring in the future.

Charge is complete but wont go on wthout power connected


Hi,
I am sorry to say this...but chances are that your battery has malfuntioned or simply can't hold a charge anymore. If you want to be 100% sure try the battery in another PSP...and if it works then there is eomthing wrong with your PSP (this second scenerio is highly unlikely). I recommecnd getting a new battery. Good luck!

Wait a few moments, then turn the power on. ? Turn the power off. Remove game and reinsert it, then turn the power on. ? If you are using the AC Adapter, make sure it is securely connected to both the Nintendo DS and the wall outlet.
