Nintendo DS lite console wont turn on.

Hi, my daughter has a DS lite in pink ( age 7) When I plug the charger into it the red light comes on for a second then goes off, this happens every time I plug it in. The DS wont turn on and nothing else happens. I no its not the charger as I have a spare for her which I have also tried and the same thing happens with that. Any ideas will be great. Thanks in advance Ian.

    Same problem here but the orange light comes on for about a second when I plug the charger in and then goes out. Nothiing happens when we try to turn it on, no power at all. Have tried to turn it on with the charger plugged in and then out and have tried a new battery but the problem persists. Any help GREATLY appreciated :)

    I also have this problem.

    Only the orange light flickers for nearly a second, and then it turns off again.

    There is no possibility to turn the NDS Lite on.

    Change of AC adapter or battery does not help.



    There must be a problem with the internal power, as there may occurred a short circuit on a part. This is the only idea I have, why this happened.

    Hey all. I received my DS Lite yesterday and have the same problem to report. I plug the adaptor in and the orange led comes on once then goes off again. I tried charging the DS anyway for a few hours without the orange led, switched it on to play a game, and within 2min or less, the light went red again. So it's definitely not holding a charge at all.

    Anybody have any other ideas?

    Tx! Hendrik

    I have same problem with one of my sons ds, plug in charger and orange light comes on for a second then goes off. Changed over battery from second ds and same problem occurs. Therefore a faulty ds! Only solution is to replace m/board or new ds i think

I had the same problem. You can take it in to the store you bought it at, and see if they can fix it. If they can't, then if you still have the warranty, you can replace yours for free. If you don't, you will have to buy a new DS lite.

I hope this will work.

Actually chances are the battery connection is either dirty or theres a blown capacitor on the ds motherboard I just took one apart with the same issue and found a burn in the motherboard just a quarter of a inch way from the battery housing.

other then that you can always try taking it to someone that can take it apart to verify the burt capacitor on the mainboard

online the motherboard will run you about 70 bucks, so almost cheaper to just get a new ds cause add shipping to that and you mine as well.

I still have to run a few tests I have some working motherboards so I will test them in the unit and see if the problem is fixed but remember. its only man made.

Nintendo DS Lite - does not charge


i would suggest trying to find what the issue is, if you know anyone who has a different charger, try it on your daughter's ds. if it still doesn't work, it's a DS problem...if it's under warranty, go to whatever store you bought it at and have them fix or replace it. If you try the different charger and it DOES work, then the only problem is the charger...so then all you have to do is go buy a new charger...hope this helps.

Nintendo DS will NOT charge


My guess is that the problem resides in the charger. You can buy a dual use charger for the DS and DS Lite at GameStop for relatively cheap.

Power problems with DS Lite


Really sounds like a dead battery. The DS will not work if the battery is bad even when it's plugged in. You get the quick flash of the power light and that's it.

Ds lite ac wall charger


When you first get the DS it will have a bit if charge on it but only a few hours worth. When the DS charges it usally comes up with a orange/red ish light then that goes out about a few hours later when its charged. ad if you want to chek if it is charging correcly turn the DS on whilst it is charging and the little battery simble in the top right corner should show the battery carging.
