Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

Well, I am one mad mama!! I have 2 Nintendo DS Lites, and like everyone else they won't charge. We have replaced the batteries (ordered directly from Nintendo). We have had the units repaired SEVERAL times by Nintendo. They said the units have been dropped. Apparently, if you drop the DS, the charging mechanism becomes damaged. Well, I know the units have not been dropped since they were repaired the third time. My question is, do the Nintendo DSi's have the same problem? This is a huge design flaw-especially since it was made for kids to use.

There is a tiny, tiny fuse in the DS charging circuit that has more than likely blown. Don't know why it's blown on both of yours though. Power surge? Cheap charger? I think you can get an external battery charger and charge the batteries directly if that helps.....

    Well, I've been using the charger they sent to us after the repairs. But, I like the idea of charging the battery directly. Where can I find a charger to accomodate the Nintendo battery?

How do I change the language in cooking mama to english


i bought cooking mama for ds and it worked perfectly in english...
when you buy the game, if the title in english usually the game would be in english otherwise you could return it to the store.
the other solution,if you want to, you could buy flash card for ds such edge and r4, and download the game online...
because when you download the game, they have tag behind the title.
for example: cooking mama 2 (US) which in english
cooking mama (GER) which in germany etc

When i try to power on my son's DS Lite, the red light is on, and both screens power on for about 2-3 seconds max and then the system shuts off. It also wont charge when connected to the wall.


You may need to get a replacement battery pack when the battery is below 30% the light will turn red, the battery requires 4 hours to charge, and when the battery is fully charged the amber colored light will turn off. If you still need to purchase a new battery contact nintendo cust serv at 800-255-3700 or you can order online at nintendo.com You will need a #00 philips screw driver to remove the battery cover, install the battery with the 2 tabs in first, close compartment and allow battery to fully charge before use. The average battery will last for about 500 charges. Hope this helps

How to i get to play two players on the Nintendo ds lite


You can play multiplayer games with a Nintendo DS Lite even if you don’t possess a copy of the game. If one of your friends has a multiplayer game card, they can use their Nintendo DS Lite as a host for the game session and you can join the multiplayer game.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Things You'll Need:
  • Nintendo DS Lite
    Using One Card to Host the Game
  1. Step 1 Look on the game’s packaging for the "Multiplayer" icon. If the game requires only one player to have a copy of the game, the icon will show two DS Lites: a DS Lite with a black screen transmitting waves to a DS Lite with a white screen. Below the two DS Lites is a range of numbers which indicates how many players the game can support.
  2. Step 2 Put the game card in the Nintendo DS Lite that is acting as the host for the multiplayer game session and start it up.
  3. Step 3 Have the other players turn on their systems. They will use the main menu screen to access the "DS Download Play" icon. They need to tap the icon to begin downloading the game information from the host DS Lite.
  4. Step 4 Begin playing when all of the systems have finished downloading the game information from the host.
  5. Multiple Cards for Multiple Players
  6. Step 1 Look at the "Multiplayer" icon. If every player in the game session needs a copy of the game in order to play, the icon will show two DS Lites, both with black screens, transmitting waves toward each other. A range of numbers is under this graphic and indicates how many people can play at one time.
  7. Step 2 Read the game's instruction manual on how to set up the game session. The steps required vary by company and sometimes by title within the same company.

I want to play a game with cooking mama tamagotchi and mario


These three characters are owned by three different companies.
Though as some arcade game players might know, Tamagotchi was in a Mario Kart Arcade 2 game. But these machines can be really had to find.
I'd suggest finding a real Tamagotchi toy or finding the old Game Boy Color Tamagotchi game as these follow the original pet simulation formula.
The Tamagotchi games for the DS are all mini game collections with Tamagotchi themed things.

As for Cooking mama,
theres
Cooking Mama 1
Cooking Mama 2
Gardening Mama (released last month or so)
Plus two Gardening Mama games for the Wii.

For Mario I'd sugget;
New Super Mario Bros
Super Mario 64 DS
Mario Kart DS

You can pick these all up from your local game shop for a decent price or better these days.

Tamagotchi can be hard to find, though some gameshops will carry older games.

I hope that helps. Good luck.

Nintendo ds wont charge


cheekiemunke,

First of all, your DS Lite is charging both ways.....with power on and without power on.
You have for almost 99% sure a blown fuse F2 on the systemboard.
If you can solder you can try to replace it with a new one but be adviced, it is tricky if you don't have the skills with soldering SMD components and it can send your DS lite to the trash.
So my advice is find someone that repair DS Lites or order a fuse on eBay and try it yourself.

Regards

John
