There are a few things that could have caused this:

If the connections for the top and bottom screen are not completely in or slightly wrong then the DS will flash and not turn on.


The second and worse thing that could have happened is you have blown the fuse. Yes supposedly DS's have fuses! I put the battery in the wrong way round when I had one of mine apart and it stopped working. After asking on a few forums I think I blew the fuse. People say they have fixed it with a bit of soldering. I'm not sure how to solve this problem but I'll have a look for you if this is what you have done.

Hope this helps,

You might have loosened a wire. Either take the ds apart and reconnect it yourself or send it in to nintendo for service.

Flashing bottom screen (Nintendo DS Lite)


You need to check the top screen ribbon is fully inserted into to place on the board. A green light and flash of the screen within a second means ribbon not connecting right

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.

My Nintendo DS won't stay on.


try charging it, or if that doesnt work,the battery might be in incorrectly, or one of the battery pins is broken or bent.if the battery is in incorrectly try putting it in again.if one of the pins is bent try carefully bending it back.if one is bro0ken,you might consider a new DS.there could also be forien material in thew battery compartment, in which case you would extract.if none of these solutions work,it might either be the battery(in which case you would buy a new one)or an intenal problem (which would lead me to consider a new DS)

Most likley, you did not correctly seat the ribbon cable for one of the screens into it's connector.

Did the unit function correctly before?
Did you change the case because the previous one broke?

Ndsl power problem


As Bob (HowlingMad) said, the Ds and Ds Lite will turn off immediately after being turned on if the connection to the top screen is broken.

Check the connections between the screen and Ds, if they look damaged then try replacing the ribbon cable for the top screen (or you may have to replace the whole screen - i'm not sure if it is built together on the Ds Lite). If the connections appear fine then it may be that due to the movement the connector has come out of it's socket/plug (also like Bob said), this is easily fixable if this is the case and would require you to take the casing off your Ds and plug it back in.

Hope this helps

Will not power up after changing the case


I found this on ebay after a lot of searching forums and other sites, and it worked for me!

"If you are one of the unlucky ones, LIKE me, you may find after taking it apart,and then putting it all back into the new case, that when you power up, bottom screen flashes, and nothing... DONT panic.. I did.. tried looking for help on the web and couldnt find any. It just means you, like me havent pushed one of the Ribbon cables fully in... took me a while to work it out, just unclip the ribbon cable again, and with both fingers gently push it all the way in, you will feel it slide into the socket more than it did before. "

Good luck Duca
