    We are having the same problem with my son's DS...the green light comes on but both screens remain blank. I bought a new one for him, but was wanting to get the other repaired to give to one of his friends. Any suggestions?

    I have the exact same problem, appeared suddenly, not after a knock or being dropped, just happened. Mine charges ok orange LED comes on and such. and the battery gives a good reading, and checked F1 and F2 fuses and those are fine, i'll have a check for loose connections.

    My neighbour has a similiar problem, her daughters DS lite ( ONLY 3 months old ) doesn't turn on, nor does it charge. As the power cord is inserted the charge light briefly illuminates, but as i said, BRIEFLY. Any solutions?

Sounds like you both have a lose connection on the circuit board, so easily done, even if one cable is slightly misaligned the ds will not turn on, do they charge o.k?? if so it is a faulty connection

Power is on but my nintendo ds lite stays blank (black screen) both screens


Hi,

Did your DS get a small bang?

The problem you are having is the L2 fuse located immediately below the on/off switch when you open up the DS (lower screen).

If you give the DS a very mild rattle you will here it rattling around loose inside the DS (in most cases). A lot of the time this same fuse can be soldered back into place to fix the problem all you need is a soldering iron and a triwing screwdriver (eBay).

If it is this fuse and you cant find it, you should bring it back to Nintendo for repair or your local PC repair shop should be able to help.

Blank screens/no sound on ds lite


This definatley sounds faulty. Try turning it on again without any games inside. If it turns on okay without a game then it may just be that game you had inserted into it, if this is the case then try a different game to determine whether it is the game or not. If the screen still remains blank then take the DS back to the store where you purchased it and they should replace it free for another one.

Nintendo DS Lite Problem


That sounds like your DS lite have a lose circuit part rolling inside so thats why it cant turn on.

You need to open the console, recover the lose part from the inside and resolder it in its place (usually near the power switch, marked as L2). That should fix the problem, if not then you might have blown fuses, lose screens ribbon cables or broken LCD screens. All of these repairs are discussed in other questions here.

Non-working top screen


If you see lines on either screen of your Nintendo DS Lite during game play, then it is likely one or more of the components that create the image on the screen are damaged. This can occur if there has been an impact -- such as being dropped or hit -- to the Nintendo DS Lite's screens. Phone 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available repair options and they will be grateful to assist you at any time of need.Important Note: If you are seeing lines on the screen that slowly fade away after turning off the system, this is normal.
