DS wont turn on

My daughter dropped her beloved DS onto concrete from about 3 feet, no physical damage, but wont turn on. The power light comes on but no screen or sound. I have pulled it apart but can not see anything wrong, put back together, same problem. Could it have dropped its firm ware load and if so can I reload it.
I would appreciate an help or comments whatsoever. Thanx

    I dropped my Ninendo ds and it won't turn back on what do I do

  • heart_freyaa Dec 07, 2008

    My DS has taken quite a few bashes since I fall asleep leaving it on my bed and then get woken up by the sound of it crashing on the floor. This happens quite often but I dropped it from about a foot off the ground the other day and now it won't turn on. The charge light works which shows its not out of battery and I can hear something rattling inside...no green light or flash of screen, it just does not respond.
    Help!

Nintedo Ds Wont turn on! Even if Charged!


Does the yellow light come on when charging? Could be that the fuse for the charging circuit has gone, or on of the screens has been damaged. If it's only 4 months old and not been dropped etc, send it back to Nintendo I'd have thought.

NINTENDO DS LITE POWERS ON AND THEN IMMEDIATELY OFF


The system powers on, then performs a system check. The DS is finding some sort of error More than likely the top screen was damaged. I've been told that the screen that flickers is usually the good screen. The bad one doesn't flicker because it's damaged. You can replace the top screen yorself (if you're fairly handy), or you can pay a professional to do it. You can get new screens from Dealextreme.com for around 10US dollars, with free shipping. You can also find videos about how to change out the top screen on youtube. Hope this helps

Dropped Nintendo DS Lite on wooden floor - NOW IT WON'T TURN ON


remove the battery for a few mins and put it back in and try again?
Its a long shot but theres very little you can do with this, the insides of the DS lite are REALLY small and the only replaceable parts are the screen, buttons, etc. and you cant really fix damage to the board or chips inside which presumably is whats happened here if you get zero response.
Sorry.. :(

Dropped ds, now it wont turn on.


It sounds like it got dropped in water but if you didn't; You should try to take out the battery (unplug the DS first) usually I would suggest just waiting a few seconds and replacing the battery. However due to how the battery comes out, and depending on the height the battery fell from, you should make sure none of the brass pinns that contact the battery got smushed.

If the pins are smushed (if one or two of the pins don't protrude as far as the other) take a safety pin or a needle and try to gently bend them back out to a distance they will definatly make contact with the brass strips on the battery.

Nintendo ds lite wont turn back on


Not sure if this will help you, but my son dropped his on to a concrete pavement and it wen black, the charge lite would only come up for one second then go out when I plugged it in to charge. Just for fun, I had a spare battery and changed it. In this instance, the system started working again.

Not sure how this can happen, but dropping it on the floor seems to have killed the battery that was in it. A simple replacement battery did the trick for me.

Good Luck in fixing yours

Components may have come loose on the board, or damaged solder joints. Water damage can sometimes only appear after water has had time to seep, unless knock helped throw some residual water around inside, onto things it shouldn't touch.
