The switch is broken. This is a common problem if the shell case has been removed or if someone simply pushed way too ******* the power button. A new button can be purchased on ebay for under $10. Some soldering and desoldering will be required. The DS Lite is breakable when taking it apart so be careful. You can also send it to a guy like me for a fee and have it fixed or sell the broken unit to someone like me that fixes them.

My power switch slides back and forth very loosely and won't turn on can i fix this myself?


yes if you can solder. New switches are about £1. Make sure the new switch doesn't overhang the motherboard or you may break it again.
Check you tube for instruction videos
If you can't fix it youself then you may consider removing the back of the DS, removing the on button and putting it back together so you can operate the switch with a toothpick.

Nintendo ds lite keeps shutting off


you probably have a power shortage when you move the screen. the only way to fix this is to open the ds, make sure everything is in the right place, and put it back together. i cant promise this will work, but it should.

My nintendo ds lite stopped working but does charge


The LCD screens may be dead. Ask a mechanic to change the screens.

Or maybe it is about the hinge. the cables may be damaged.

Did you spill anything on the DS??

Nintendo DS Lite No Poer Up


Does the power button have resistance? If not it is broken. Don't trash the unit if you decide you can't fix it. Sell it to someone like me who can fix it.

Ds not lite


Replace the connector cord between two screens. You can buy new ones from DX Deal extreme! Carefully remove through hinge and attach securely.

Be careful not to break the fine wires connecting. Have to twist the connector cord in the correct way to make it go through hinge without damaging.

Good luck cos it is a fiddly job.
