Will the DSi power on while connected to the charging cable? If it does, then you have a bad battery.

If it does not, then it could be the plug on either the charger or the receiver on the unit. The charging cable should have two copper connectors on the bottom. The plug on the system should have a prong in the middle on it as well. If this is damaged or missing, it may require a replacement power supply.

  • 1 Hold down the "Power" button for at least four seconds to turn the DSi off. If the system powers off, hold the Power button to turn the system back on and reset the operating system. The system should no longer be frozen. If the system doesn't power off, go to the next step.
  • 2 Plug the Nintendo DSi to the power outlet using its AC adapter. Allow the system to charge for two to three hours. A battery may be recharged 500 times or less before being depleted. Once charged, hold down the "Power" button to turn on and reset the operating system. The system should unfreeze itself; if not, follow the next step.
  • 3 Remove the battery from the Nintendo DSi. Unplug the AC adapter from the DSi. Loosen the two screws with a Philips screwdriver on the battery cover. Remove the cover, then remove the battery. Put the old battery back in or replace it with a new battery. Removing and resituating an old battery will sometimes jolt the system and allow it to unlock itself. Replace the battery cover and retighten the screws. Then, try to hold down the "Power" button to unfreeze the system.

    Hi my nintendo ds lite wn't turn. do i require to charage my ds,or no?

    A Nintendo DS console will indeed need charging. If your light appears as red, yes, you will need to purchase a Nintendo DS charger. All and every kinds of Nintendo DS's require charging. Nintendo DS, Nintendo DS Lite, Nintendo DSi, Nintendo DSi XL, and Nintendo 3DS. You will have to insert the wall outlet side of the plug into the wall, and the other smaller side into the DS, DSi, or 3DS.

    If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to contact me!

    Is their a different way to charge a dsi

    Unfortunately the only way to charge the DSi is with the charging port. You can get different chargers if you lost yours, but if there is another problem, like the port broken, there really isnt a way. Hope I could help ;) thanks

    Battery? console has no charge when plugged into wall outlet I push power button blue LED comes on briefly , then red flashes 3 times, and the yellow LED lights up along with the health warning on the...

    What color is the power light when the system shuts off?
      Red: If the power light is red, or flashing red, when the system turns off, then the system's battery needs to be charged.

      Blue: If the power light is blue when the system turns off, then there appears to be a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.

      If the orange recharge indicator light blinks while the system is plugged in and charging, then it is likely that the battery is not installed properly.

      If you have ensured that the battery is installed properly but the orange light still blinks, check to make sure that the battery is a licensed by Nintendo. The only licensed Nintendo DSi battery will have the model number "TWL-003" (Nintendo DSi) or "UTL-003" (Nintendo DSi XL) and will display Nintendo's logo.
      Call 1-800-255-3700 if you still need help.
