Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

Same charge problem...

I have the same problem that a bunch of people have about the ds not charging... i think it might be overcharged because the charge light comes on when the ds is turned on, and the power cord plugged in after that... so i guess try this and could u plz tell me if overcharging is the problem or if i have a fuse problem?

thanks

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.)

DS is stuck in charge mode when plugged in.


Your DS may have a problem reading the battery gauge, and the DS will only let the charger do its thing for a period of time. Then, if it is still connected, it may burst more charge in. This means that your DS is acting up, and your battery may have a rare (and not harmful to the DS) malfunction.

Nintendo DS Battery Problems


ok this costs money but my idea is to maybe buy a new battery or to take it to nintendo.
the cheapest one is battery. they are sold on amazon.co.uk with a screwdriver for about £4 if it is a lite.
good luck and if all fails either get a new one or get a new charger or take it to nintendo.

Unit will not charge


I think that the problem is being caused by your actual DS not the battery. The DS might not be transmitting the power to the battery . Id return your DS and get a new one or get your money back :-)

Ds lite charging lite comes on but when i press power button nothing happens


Are you leaving the DS charge until the light comes off? Remember that there are two likes too, one for charging and one for power. If you're just charging for some random period of time (lets say... One hour) then your Battery isn't going to be fully charged. The best way to ensure that your DS Lite is charged is to leave it charge until the charge light turns off. You can play your DS Lite while you are charging (I do it all the time), but it just means that you're just running off of the outlet.

A good test is to charge it fully (until the charge light comes off), unplug the charger cord (Make sure it's secured tightly to your DS while charging), then play for a little bit, your light should be a normal color (green).

If you cannot even play by using the outlet, then you need to
find a charger cord that actually works (You may need to send in the charger for replacement). If the same thing happens with 2 different batteries (assuming that you have two official Nintendo batteries).

TIP: Also run your fingers across the Charger cord. You're going to get a slight friction burn from the rubber, but you're going to get all of the kinks out of the wire in the cord. My charger cord had a similar problem (did not charge all the way, only charged until I moved the DS) but when I ran my fingers across it (pinching) it worked again.

Also check the pins in both charger cords, charging will not work if one pin is missing, nor if any are bent.

Both upper and lower screens are blank


You may be mistaking it saying it is charging with saying it is low battery. Green = Battery is well charged, Red = getting low, Flashing Red = Very low, Orange = Charging.
If you are certain that it is saying it is charged, charge it anyway, it probably is uncharged but is confused about whether it is charged or not. Remember that this is a machine: it has no brain, and cannot think for itself. All machines are stupid, they can only think what you tell them to think, and you have to be careful or it trips over itself and breaks.
