Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

DS Lite shuts off when it is closed or the back is hit hard enough

I first noticed this problem just yesterday. I was playing my DS Lite, and I closed it to go and do something, and when I opened it back up, it was turned off. I didn't think this was a big deal because I don't really shut it that often, but today when I was playing, I left it open and put it down, and it shut off. I tested it out a couple of times. I turned it on, and tapped the back of the DS and found that when you tap the back more towards the power button, it shuts off. Does anyone know what's wrong or have any solutions? Thanks!

Your DS is having a circuitry problem and you may have to get it sent off for repair before the problem gets worse, the cause of this could of been 1. dropped it accidentally or 2. its having a hissy fit.

Hi, I have a DS Lite 2 years old and I noticed that in several games it´s turning off suddently while the game is running. Restarting, the game starts from the beggining.Sometimes the problem appears...


If you have dropped or bumped the ds lite hard against something then it's possible the black coil near the power switch is loose. This can cause it randomly shut off. The coils is the round topped black thing with 100 printed on it. There are several on the motherboard but you're looking for the one closest to the power switch. Just heat up the solder on both sides of the coil and it should reseat it.

Nintendo ds lite that shuts off unexpectedly


Hi again,

Ive been doing a bit of research and it seems that if the DS lite has had a knock the black coil near the power switch could have been knocked loose which would make the DS lite switch off randomly. If you want to see if thats the problem take the DS lite apart (for a dismantle guide click here) and check to see if its loose... its the black round thing with 100 written on it near the power switch. If its loose then heat up the solder round it and that should reset it.

If thats not it check the L2 transistor is firmly in place, again if its loose heat the solder and reset it.

Another thing you can check is the power switch make sure its solid and doesnt wobble internally i.e. the black moveable part only moves the way its supposed to, as well as checking the solder is solid.

DS Light shutting off randomly


I know this may sound stupid and obvious, but are you hitting the power switch while playing? I used to have the same problem when playing "intense" games like racing when I would get totally absorbed and then all of a sudden my DS would shut off and I'd be like WTF?! I took it apart and switched batteries and found nothing wrong with it. One day my sister was watching me and asked "Why did you shut it off?" and then I knew. The power switch is very sensitive if you hit it even just a little it could be enough to shut the power off. I suggest just monitering what happens when the power goes off. Is it a specific game that shuts it off? Enviornmental effects? It should tip you off to the problem. If all else fails you could contact Nintendo and just see what they have to say. =)

DS Lite Shuts down when closed instead of pausing game


Make sure before closing the DS that your Battery is Charged. If you have to step away for a considerable amount of time, plug the DS in to the AC adapter then close the DS.

You may also want to check out the battery to make sure that no moisture has gotten in to the case. Just a little moisture can short out the DS and Shut it down. You also can check online to purchase a new battery for the ds. They gave one available at Buy.com for 6.99.

I hope this helps. Take Care. =)
