Sounds like you have blown a fuse when you replaced the top screen to me. If you had the battery in place at any time when you had the case open there is a chance you could have shorted the screen casing against the pcb. this can blow one of two fuses in the DS.

Google for blown fuse on DS and you should find some info to steer you in the right direction and determine if this is your problem or not.

Good luck

Theres a good chance that the cable might have been damaged in replacement of the top screen. check the tiny inserts at the end. But first, see if the cables' fully connected. As for the battery, it might already be at capacity, and is fully charged. that might explain your 3 second charge. Anyone please write if this helped you in any way.

My ds lite just switched off and it was charged


Hi, so if you try switching on the ds lite, nothing at all happens ??
Does the green light flash even if it is for like a split second.If it does then it is more likely top be a blown fuse. If 1 of your screens flicker also, this could be your problem as the ds will not start up with a broken screen. Please advise

When The DS Boots the top screen flashes for a second and the whole unit turns off.


You should try charging the DS system if the light is red. Make sure both the outlet you plug the DS into, the charger, and the DS charging port are not damaged. If this does not work, try visiting this website: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/index.jsp or calling Nintendo Customer Service at 1-800-255-3700.

Hope this helped,

My ds will not turn on


Hi,

It sounds like one of you're screens has broken. What you have discribed is generally what happens one either the top or bottom LCD screen has broken.

If it is the top screen the bottom screen will flash for 1/2 a second and the DS turns off.

If it is the bottom screen the DS should still turn on but with no reaction from the screens. (the Ds will shut down immediatley after turning on)

My ds lite wont turn on i bought a new baterie and charged it with my cuzin charger and it still does not turn on it just goes on for 3 seconds and turns off and only the top screen blinks 1 and it just...


Nick625343,

Your DS Lite is damaged and needs to be sent to Nintendo for repair.

Nintendo will likely tell you the unit is beyond repair and must be replaced.

If you want to avoid the middle man, you can always purchase a new DS Lite from your local electronics retailer.

NINTENDO DS LITE WON'T CHARGE OR POWER ON


Each time you charge your battery, the charge capacity is decreased. After a large amount of charges, the capacity is decreased to an amount only enough to turn on a/the screen(s) for a second. Try getting a new battery.

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
