Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

The power switch

My son has Nintedo DS Lite and it "appears" as if he has dropped it one to many times (unusual for an 11 year old :) . The power switch is loose/wabbly and the game won't turn on. He said it just shut off when he was playing. Thoughts?

The switch could be defective or the batteries may need to be reseated. I would first try and reseat the batteries. Disconnect them for about 1 minute then reconnect them. See if this helps. If it does not here is a link to the nintendo website:

Nintendo DS Link

    These are the most common issues. I am sorry but we are not allowed to accept merchandise for repair. You will have to contact nintendo and setup a service call or RMA. I thought I offered a good resolution to the information given to me and I ask that you please reconsider the rating I was given. I would be happy to help with any more questions that you have.

Nintedo Ds Wont turn on! Even if Charged!


Does the yellow light come on when charging? Could be that the fuse for the charging circuit has gone, or on of the screens has been damaged. If it's only 4 months old and not been dropped etc, send it back to Nintendo I'd have thought.

Hi, I have a DS Lite 2 years old and I noticed that in several games it´s turning off suddently while the game is running. Restarting, the game starts from the beggining.Sometimes the problem appears...


If you have dropped or bumped the ds lite hard against something then it's possible the black coil near the power switch is loose. This can cause it randomly shut off. The coils is the round topped black thing with 100 printed on it. There are several on the motherboard but you're looking for the one closest to the power switch. Just heat up the solder on both sides of the coil and it should reseat it.

@pietras1422, on the mainboard next to the power-switch, there is a resistor. If could be loose or is missing completely. Problem will occur when the DS Lite is dropped to the ground

Components may have come loose on the board, or damaged solder joints. Water damage can sometimes only appear after water has had time to seep, unless knock helped throw some residual water around inside, onto things it shouldn't touch.

DS Lite does not power up


If the console has overcharged or has been used for long periods of time or could just be fluke, chances are the fuses are blown on the main motherboard try this link, this guy fixed my ds and i had the exact same problems as you guys have
