DS will not keep settings

You said to change the internal battery. Are you referring to the regular battery that runs the entire unit or a smaller battery located inside the unit.

The main battery is the only battery that keeps the DS memory there is no internal clock battery or anything so it will most likley be your main battery that is dead.

Quick point though, if this is the case your DS should not boot. if it does boot and the settings are lost then I would check the battery terminals to make sure they are connecting okay.

Other than this it could be an eprom on the main board at fault maybe.

Good luck

My ds lite won't turn on.


Regular tap water contains minerals that are left behind as the water dries out. So, even if you did get all the water out, the minerals can still cause damage. In addition, the DS has a 'soft power switch' and that means that as long as the battery is in the device (as it probably was when sprayed) there is electricity present that can destroy the unit while water is there. Most probably, the water already did some damage when the unit got wet and the minerals and/or previous damage may have finished the job later when the unit was turned on. Some water may have even been left in the system since it can hide in areas that the dry rice will not be able to "draw" out. The best way to dry out a device is quickly remove the battery, take the entire system apart and clean the individual components and run some distilled water over the components to remove the mineral content of tap water before it dries on the boards/contacts. The DS lite system is relatively inexpensive these days, I think your best solution might be buying a good used one off Ebay (units can be had for around $50 today). May want to take apart any cartridge you had in it the old one and check for water in there, just in case, before using it in the new(er) one, too. Sorry for the bad news.

How to reset Nintendo DS Lite.


Remove the cover for the battery compartment. At the back of the DS Lite, the cover has a small screw holding it in place. You will need a Phillips size 0 screwdriver to remove it.
Take out the DS Lite's battery pack. There is a tab at the top of the battery pack. Insert your fingernail or the end of the screwdriver carefully into the edge of this tab and pop out the pack.
Keep the battery pack out of the unit for at least 10 seconds. If you keep the battery pack out for too short of a time, it will not cause a reset in the unit.
Put the battery pack back. Just line it up in the compartment and push it back into place.
Replace the cover. Replace with the screw.
Turn on the DS Lite. If the unit has properly reset, a screen will come up that reads "Before you begin, you must adjust system settings." You can now enter all new settings and information on your DS Lite. If you do not get the system settings screen, you did not keep the battery pack out long enough. Repeat the steps and leave your battery pack out for a longer period of time.

    How do you restart nintendogs


    No No No! Bad Silver! Before You See The Nintendo Sign (It may be after) Press and Hold A +B + X + Y + L Trigger + R Trigger and that's all. Taking Apart Your DS gives you a 99% Chance of epic fail. -_-

    Humminbird 343c will power down on its own


    Hi!
    If the unit shuts off on its own, firstly check your power supply. I keep seeing customers running their ssounders from a small, portable battery configuration that doesn't put out the correct voltage...mostly seen with AA size batteries being rated at 1.2 or 1.3 volts (8 batteries times 1.2 volts is only 9.6 volts).
    If the power supply is not the issue then I would say the internal power circuit is suspect...this can only be repaired by a competent repair person who knows how and what they are doing. If you open the unit up, you'll not only void the warranty, you run the risk of killing the entire unit from static shock.
    Best of luck in your repair!
