Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

3 Answers

Onceturned on, the green light goes on, the touch screen flashes white, then it all turns off.

I have read other posts, but after trying some steps, my DS is still dysfunctional. I noticed a strange thing, which makes me wonder exactly where the problem is located, but if I jam the upper lid far back, I used to be able to get it to turn on, only if the lid didn't move. After quite a few times of doing this, it stopped working at all, and only does the quick power on, power off problem that many people have. I have checked every connector I could access, and checked the wring. All seems fine. I would gladly appreciate any help. Thanks.

    The problem is the screen ribbon. Once you disassemble, good luck trying to make it functunal again. Very frustrating

    I have the exact same problem. I can't keep my DS on long enough to get a screen go to the white menu. Just as Nicane said, the screen flashes and then dead. Even if i leave the DS flat on a table and turn it on and don't move/touch it, still just turns off.

You might only have a loosen screen ribbon cable.

If not careful while taking out the top screen ribbon you can damage it causing blank screens and finally the DS wont work.

The solution to a broken top screen ribbon is to replace the whole screen in DS lite or buy the ribbon cable in the DS fat and replace.

If the broken top screen ribbon is caused by broken hinge then you should replace the shell also to avoid other broken screen.

you mean with windows open and the screen goes gray?

silly to the extreme that. Im sure yours is not with a room light sensor, but do RTM.
as you know , the screen is black lighted.
and old screens (2005 it is) do get gray and other effects.
my old view sonic, (now on server duty, off mostly)
has dim and yellow back lamps.and the LCD has age effects.
this is all 100% normal for 8 years, full time service,
in fact lucky it works at all. truth being.

elaborate what you see better may be we can hone in on the reasons. and the what you touched inside.

The Sony diagnostic routine for 4 blinks indicates it to be a vertical deflection problem.

Did you see a solid horizontal line in the center of the screen prior to it going out? If so, that is a tell tale sign for vertical problems.

basic sony reset below

The STANDBY light will flash if the television detects an issue within the television. Some of these issues can be resolved simply by following the steps below to reset the television.

  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center

Woods In-wall Timer Heavy Duty, Model #59018 -- I just installed my timer and was able program and set the time, but when I push the manual override button to turn the light on, the light flashes and turns...


Quick answer:
1) Programming steps say 'press clock key to return to current time and day'
2) Use mode button and change between AUTO & RND >> try manual override in each mode
3) Does timer turn lights on-and-off with program, or do they blink too?
4) Swap Black and Red wires
5) Try timer on light in different room, on different circuit breaker
6) Timer might be defective

Longer answer:
Woods 59018 manual does not show troubleshooting steps except 'check wiring; switch Red and Black leads; and/or reset programming'

Seems unlikely you could program timer unless timer is wired correctly ... unless there is a short of some kind.

To review wiring.
Green goes to bare ground wire.
White goes to Neutral white wire (neutral is usually 2 or 3 white wires twisted together and shoved to back of box)
Black must connect to Hot from circuit breaker
Red must connect to Load (light, fan, motor etc)

How to test wiring
:
Disconnect timer and set aside.
Mark each wire
Separate wires in box so they don't touch
Use ordinary tester (you can tape tester leads to wood sticks)
Turn on power
You should have two black wires that were originally connected to switch
Test black wires to bare ground > when tester lights up, that is the Hot wire.
The other black wire goes to Load

Now you want to find the neutral.
Test the Hot black wire to white wires in box.
When tester lights up, that is neutral.

If everything checks out, I guess timer is defective.

When you turn on the ds the green light comes on, the top screen flashes white and the the green light goes out


This is because your bottom LCD screen is faulty. You can buy these quite cheaply off of ebay for around £10 and they are pretty easy to fit. There are lots of guides out there but if you need any more help please post a reply to me here.

DS lite green light comes on, top screen flash,then switches off


Check L2 near the power switch on your DS mobo. That part usually get loosen or taken out when you drop your DS. And usually you can recover it when dismantling your DS.
