You might have gotten some water or something in your system. Let it dry for a while and see what will happen. Now, if that doesnt work there are two alternatives:
1. If you are willing to risk your system then open it up and clean out the inside (there might be water in there. I did this with my laptop after I spilled coffee on it and it worked :).
2. Call nintendo and pay $90 to get it fixed by the pros.

Hi, even though my dsi is completely charged it flickers white than powers off the power light is light orange and the charge light is bright orange...whats the problem


It could be the fuse but I am more confident that it is related to the flex cable connecting the top LCD to the motherboard. That is usually the symptoms. Again I never rule out the possibility of it being the fuse but the symptoms of the fuse is usually no reaction from the screen at all. The top LCD is very cheap on ebay. The repair is fairly easy. If you want I will post some tutorials to give you an idea of how you can do it yourself. Again I am pretty sure if you replace the top LCD (new flex cable is soldered on and attached to the top LCD) the problem will be solved.

The green light is blinking, no red lights or anything else? The fuse is good as well correct?

This jus happened to me i connect my ds charger to the ds and the orange lite keeps turning off why is that


It sounds like a blown fuse, I have just repaired my son's ds but as I couldn't get hold of the correct fuse I used the wire out of a 1 amp glass tube type fuse and bridged the faulty fuse without removing it.
See youtube video
Good luck

It does not want to turn on even when fully charged, i can keep pushing the on button and nothing happen at all. I can charge it up but nothing at all, even touching the screen or else nothing happen.

My DS lite wont charge - the orange light flashes once, then nothing.


Hi, it might be the fuse.
Does the DS turn fail to turn on?
Does the charge light just flash briefly when you plug in charger?
If so it will be the fuse.
If the console it out of warranty, maybe you or someone you know can fix it.
Check out the following youtube videos

My top screen on my DS lite flickers and i was wondering if there is a way to DIY instead of sending it in


Yes!

There is a way, but please please PLEASE watch the video carefully. All you get is one chance and if you rip the cable (top lcd) you'll be out of money.

1.) You can buy the Top LCD here. http://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-DS-Lite-Full-Replacement-Screen/dp/B000RX1E8C

2.) You can watch instructions on how to replace it here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXnx-5FJjQU


GOODLUCK! I hope I helped!
