    Hello. I have the same problem here.

    The NDS Lite is switching on and off even when not in use and it's somewhat disturbing.

    I found no hints about it anywhere. The console's warranty has expired. There is no authorized nintendo-support in my country.

    Need help :(

The access point's security settings are not supported by nintendo DS how can i solve this problem


The Original DS does not support WPA passwords, passwords you make up yourself to protect your network. The DS does support WEP passwords, a password randomly generated by the router.
You will need to switch your routers security to WEP or take off security entirely.

Im playing my nintendo ds but in randomly shuts down while im playing it even though it is fully charged what should I do to fix it pls help


Make sure the battery contacts are clean, and the battery is fully "clicked-in" to place

To clean the battery contacts, you can use a cotton swab with some rubbing alcohol, or you can even use a pencil eraser. Clean both the contacts on the battery and on the DS, being careful not to bend any spring pins when doing so. Just make sure the gold color is somewhat shiny, and you should have good contact.

if that doesn't help, contact Nintendo's customer service:

Nintendo DS shuts off randomly


try to play with the poweradapter connected. If the problem still there you will need probably a new mainboard for your nintendo. If the problem disappears probably a bad battery is the problem. If you can exchange your battery with another NDS lite you can check if it is the battery or mainboard.

Nintendo DS Lite Turns on sometimes, but not every time


It may be a bad DS or if you have a game in before the DS fully loads the game's connection is stopped somehow.

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. =)

Nintendo DS Lite won't come on


@JoepIt, you have a defective LCD screen. Could be upper of lower (I thing for 99% the upper).


@pietras1422, on the mainboard next to the power-switch, there is a resistor. If could be loose or is missing completely. Problem will occur when the DS Lite is dropped to the ground

Nintendo DS Lite shuts off randomly.


I'm a certified electronic technician and I must say NDS internal screen ribbon connectors are junk! Basically The ribbon connectors are so sketchy that it is not recommended to ever unclip them, if you do there's a good chance it will ever work again once reconnected due to how the connector pins slightly crimp into the ribbon pads.

When a NDS boots up the the onboard firmware constantly tests the LCD screen connections, if there is a break in the connection the NDS will shut down. If your NDS randomly turns off, fails to boot, or powers of when you move the hinge it is most likely the ribbon (flex film) or ribbon connector has failed. The only option to to replace the affected LCD screen.
