Power problems with DS Lite

Hi, my daughter only had her DS Lite for a month before it stopped working. The red power light comes on for a second when it is on the charger but then goes off again, so there is power there. Nothing else happens however. I have no idea where the receipt is so the warranty is useless unfortunately.

It seems unlikely that the battery is dead after only a month. Has anyone experienced this and what was the solution?

My sons DS recently started doing the same. I tried a different charger and got the same result. I found the only way the ds would charge was to turn the ds on to get the green light and then plug the charger into and turn that on and only then would the charge light would stay on and charge it.

Put it on the charger then leave in for a few hours, then it will be charged and it will work

Really sounds like a dead battery. The DS will not work if the battery is bad even when it's plugged in. You get the quick flash of the power light and that's it.

Nintedo Ds Wont turn on! Even if Charged!


Does the yellow light come on when charging? Could be that the fuse for the charging circuit has gone, or on of the screens has been damaged. If it's only 4 months old and not been dropped etc, send it back to Nintendo I'd have thought.

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.

Everytime I wanted to charge my ds lite, the power turns red then it turned off in a second. I don't know where the problem comes, if it's the charger or the ds itself


Hi,

Possibly both, or it could be your battery. Have you tried another battery? or tried the same charger on another DS lite?

I suggest you get another battery or another charger, whichever is cheaper , or try it on a friends.


If your charger and your battery works, then it is your charging port, it will have to be replaced.

My DS lite just stopped working, when I plug it into the AC Adapter the power light goes on for only a second. Nothing happens when I turn the power on.


could be a faulty battery, or the battery terminal could be at fault check that the terminals to the battery are in tacked and springy. could also be a fuse blown on the board.

Nintendo DS will NOT charge


My guess is that the problem resides in the charger. You can buy a dual use charger for the DS and DS Lite at GameStop for relatively cheap.

Does not power up or turn on.


I think that this problem is caused by either f1 or f2 fuses being blown. The other problem mentioned where the green light comes on for a second then goes out again is usually caused by the cable connecting the top screen to the motherboard, it is either broken, damaged or incorrectly seated.
