Hi,
the ds lite sounds as if it,s damaged.
the problem with using adapters from other consoles, is that if the output voltage is higher, or the polsrity is different. the ds will be damaged. if you look at the back or underside of the ds. it should say for example. DC 9v. if you have used a 10-12 Volt charger, this has damaged the consoles mainboard fuses.
the other thing is the polsrity. whether the inner or outer section of the connecting plug is positive/inner and negative outer.
this can be viewed with a round symbol. with a plus in the centre or outer edge of the connector.

the only way, to get it working properly, if it isn,t already damaged is to get a charger of identical voltage and pin/polsrity.

I had the same problem. It was a solder connection in the charger socket. I tried to fix it but made it worse. I ended up having to switch the battery with a charged one from another GameBoy. That's how I was able to keep using it.

NDS Lite, R Button does not work


The same thing happend with my gameboy sp. all you have to do is take a screwdriver and unscrew the back. then all you have to do is clean out the gunk that is blocking the button from working.

Nintendo DS Will Not Charge


Try if the battery is charged right, when batter is fully charged disconnect from AC adapter. Hold the power button for 5 seconds. If it does not work that means that you need a replacement battery for the Nintendo DS. When you receive the replacement batter, follow the steps again.

Why don't you buy a R4 or Acekard, something that can go into the Slot-1 of the DS?

Gameboy advance sp - water damage - won't charge!


Hi Suzy,
it,s not worth repairing.
the cost of a new motherboard and fitting will cost more than the Gameboy advance. i bet the three year old lads not the flavour of the month, with the 7 year old :)
have a look on e-bays the best, not everyone wants these anymore. you might find One on Swapz.co.uk if your in England.
Hope this answers your question.
