You might have bashed up the inside a bit. I f you still have warranty then I sugesst getting it replaced. if not then there two things that you can do.
1. If you are willing to risk the ds then take it apart and see if anything is broken. if it is a disconnected wire then just do it yourself. However, if it is something more serious then take the action below.
2. If you are willing to spend some money then you can pay up to $100 to get it fixed by a pro.

Nintendo not turning on after charging battery


Hi,

If the unit does not turn on at all (no green light) then the chances are you have blown the F2 fuse...

This fuse is internal and is less than 2mm wide on its longest length.

If you have a warranty I would suggest you send it off for repair, if not you can either find a good repair service on the net (such as ebay) or repair it yourself.

If you do decide to go down the D.I.Y route you will need a few specialist tools and some good soldering skills. As I said before the fuse is very small and so you will need a steady hand to replace it.

All the tools and parts can be found on ebay... If you would like some info on where the fuse is, what tools you will need and how to go about replacing it then click on my name to get to my profile page... from there you will see a list of guides I have written, all the info you should need will be in them.

If you need any further help or advice please feel free to contact me and I will help you out as best I can.

Regards,
SOD69

My son's DS Lite won't come on. The green light


Last time I had this I had to change the motherboard, tried for hours to find the fault. motherboards are about £50 if you have to resort to it. Make sure you are buying an original nintendo and not a copy

My ds console doesn't power up but green light is on...have tried a new battery still no good. Brand new ...son's Xmas gift


HELLO!

Sorry to hear that. This problem is caused by 2 things.

1.) Wifi Board is bad
2.) Motherboard is bad


HOWEVER, the Wifi board may not be bad, but the DS could have been dropped and the Wifi-Board fell off the motherboard.


SOLUTION: Open up the DS and look to the left. You will notice a small rectangular board sitting on top of the motherboard. If it's off, re-attach it and BINGO!

My son's DS is frozen. We bought a generic DC


Has probably corrupted the DS's memory, small though it is. Replace the memory to unfreeze. Alternatively get angry and stamp on it. (2nd method worked on my psp, though not advised.)

We think a neighbor girl spilled liquid on/in my son's DS Lite. It now won't power on and the orange light will stay on for only a minute or two when we attempt to charge the unit. The battery is good......


If the DS was turned on when the liquid was spilled on it I don't think there is much hope to be honest:(

If it's under warrenty send it back otherwise you might try taking it apart and use a hair dryer to dry it off... that's a long shot though!

Ds dont turn on


You need to send it to a repair shop or nintendo as the fall has knocked out a fuse or damaged the power button or battery area, it will be one of the above if there is no power at all going to the little green and red led lights on the top right corner.

My son's nintendo ds won't come on even though it is fully charged. The light turns green then it just turns off.


This situation is most likely battery related.When a rechargeable battery is used, each charge, the capacity is slightly decreased. I would strongly recommend getting a new battery.
