Nintendo DS Lite won't turn on

Hi, My son's DS won't turn on. The green light comes on... the screen flashes white for a split second... then it shuts off. I don't think it's the battery because the light flashes green. It was working just fine one minute then it wouldn't turn on again. We've had it for about 13 months and it's always worked properly. All the parts are original. Any ideas of what could be wrong or how I could fix it? Thanks. i tryed to charge it but it won't turn on

    My problem is similar but when plugged in the red light (not green) only stays one second then turns off. When the DS Lite is turned on the red light comes back on for a couple seconds, then gets brighter for a split second and the two screens flash white then everything shuts off.

My kids did the same thing. What I did to get it to work was to push back on the top and hold it turn it on. If it comes on then turns off after you let it go get 2 rubber bands and put the 1st. one on the top left down to the bottom right. The 2nd. one goes from the top right right to the bottom left. Then keep turning it on while moving the top to find the sweet spot.

Try calling nintendo. because if it doesnt turn red when the white comes on and charging doesnt work, then nintendo will say something, they might give you a new one. Oh! if its a DS Lite take out EVERYTHING in it(the thing in the GBA slot and in the DS cartridge slot)THEN try it. if it doesent work then call nintendo.

hope i helped,

My son's DS Lite stopped working last night. The unit was working fine and the battery light turned red so he put it on to charge. After about an hour the light was green so he tried to start the console...


It sounds like the battery is dead. You can order a replacement battery direct from Nintendo at http://store.nintendo.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?productId=108205

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

I turn My nintendo DS lite on and after maybe 2 seconds the green light flashed and shuts off. Help!?


Hi,

Do either of the screens flash just before the green led goes of?

If it does then the screen that doesn't flash is faulty... If you have a warranty then i'd suggest sending it in for repair if not and you fancy a go at a bit of DIY let me know and I will take you through the process of dismantling the DS lite, reconnecting the screen to see if its just come loose and if you need to I can tell you how to go about fitting a new screen.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Ds lite flashes on but fuses are ok


One or both your screens have blown.

Try removing the motherboard from the screens and attach the battery the green light should turn on and stay on.

Now attach the lower screen and turn on. If the screen is ok the screen and green light will flash and then turn off. (if the screen doesn't flash the bottom screen is you're problem and will have to be replaced)

If this happens the problem is then you're top screen which you will have to replace.

My sons nintendo ds wont turn on, when we charge it, turn power on , the green light comes on and bottom screen blinks for a split second then goes dead.. Is this fixable , if so what do i try??? thanks


yes it is fixable sounds like your fault is with the top screen are the hinges ok has it been dropped.

most green light and screen flashes point to a defective screen or connection on the mother board or sometimes fuses. id start with checking the motherboard connection if its ok check the fuses if all is ok buy a new top screen and replace it.

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.
