Gently wiggle the charger from side to side, not too much incase you break the pins. it may be a little stiff to start with. Apply a fair amount of force and have lots of patience : )

Hope this helps,

I bought a UK Nintendo DS lite and on its initial charge I discovered that the charger had become physically stuck into the unit. After a costly and lengthy process of getting a replacement, I found that the new system also had the same problem.
Dismayed at the prospect of having to send it back again; I sat down with the DS and after easing the charger around a circular motion for about 15 minutes it popped out, without any force.
I carefully pushed the plastic block away from its enclosure on the DS with the end of a cable tie. Now the charger can be removed with just a couple of wiggles, and charges just like normal.

Hopefully this will be helpful for anybody with the same problem. I'll probably find that I have dead pixels now! :)

Hi my nintendo ds lite battery is dead and my charger is lost is there any other way to charge it without a charger?


You can try charging your DS lite using a phone charger. In order for this to work the charger must
  • Output around 5.2 volts
  • The end of the plug must look like the second plug from the left in this picture
When plugging this cord into your DS lite do NOT force it in. If you push to hard it may break the DS lite.

Nintendo ds lite won't charge just the red light to say battery is low my nintendo ds lite wont charge it always says its red


Did you attatchthe charge cord into the back of the Ds and attatch it to the wall? If you did and it didnt work, then I suggest getting it looked at, as this is usually the less expensive way of fixing it.

Car chargers stuck in nintendos, 2 upset daughters


did u try plugging them back in to the car ,maybe they heated up if so plug them in leave them for as long as when it happened and then try with a pliers for extra grip(twisting), a bad idea would be to splice the wires with the wall chargers by cutting of the ends and joining them that way but you would need to now what you are doing

Nintendo DS Lite power adaptor disconnection problem


There is a small latch on the connector that may be stuck. Try this. Turn the DS Lite upside down with the charger plug facing away from you. Press down the on the plug gently with your right thumb and with your left hand pull the connect away from the socket. FYI this should be a simple fit! Make sure the connector was not jammed in upside down to start with. It has a clear six sided shape to it!

To use Nintendo DS lite in India


The easiest solution is to buy a UK one and buy a UK-to-India plug adapter.
They use the same voltage as the UK (240 Volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second [50 Hertz]).

Using a US adapter in India could blow the adapter or DS.

Nintendo DS Lite - Not charging


sounds like you've blown a fuse inside the ds itself. Check on the underside of your console and check if it says "5.2v in" adjacent to your charger port if it does then the uk charger is safe to use. But the fact remains you may of blown a fuse. There are two fuses in the ds and are very small they can be repaired easily if you have any soldering skills.
