Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
I cannot charge the battery. The charge LED lights up, but the console wont start unless I remove the battery and charge it in another machine.
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.
