Hi, it sounds like it is definately the fuse.

If the console it out of warranty, maybe you or someone you know can fix it.
Check out the following youtube videos

SOURCE: DS Lite does not power up

I have the same problem with my sons DS Lite. I called Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700 which is in your Manual, my DS Lite is not even a year old. They are sending me a refurbished unit, which is next to brand new for free. It comes with a 1 year warranty. When the new one arrives you send back the old one to them. They pay for postage and everything. I guess this is better than not having a DS at all and who wants to spend the money on another. Give it a try. And as for a diagnosis of the problem they think it can be a electronic component inside the unit but they are not sure. Hope this helps ya !!! Smilie

SOURCE: Nintendo DS Lite - does not charge

i would suggest trying to find what the issue is, if you know anyone who has a different charger, try it on your daughter's ds. if it still doesn't work, it's a DS problem...if it's under warranty, go to whatever store you bought it at and have them fix or replace it. If you try the different charger and it DOES work, then the only problem is the charger...so then all you have to do is go buy a new charger...hope this helps.

Putin in charger orange light flashes then goes off an doesnt cha


Your DS is either fully charged or the battery got damaged/wet. When you play the DS, is the light red or flash red? If it does, then the problem is with your battery. http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/dslite_repair_home.jsp
Click on your country, then "System and Game Problems," then "Power and Battery Charging Problems."
Hope this helped.

Ds lite suddenly stopped working


The orange light goes off when the battery has been charged to its highest capacity. After every charge, the batteries capacity is decreased. Get a new battery, that should do it.

My DS will not switch on with or without the charger connected. When i plug into the charger the orange light flashes for 1/2 a second and goes out again, but no other reaction. My ds won't switch on but...


try to charge it with another battery,if that does not solve the problem then there is a blown fuse inside the board.its besibe the battery terminal to the right.but first you have to open the unit using a triwing screwdriver and a small precision phillips screwdriver.

Nintendo ds wont charge


cheekiemunke,

First of all, your DS Lite is charging both ways.....with power on and without power on.
You have for almost 99% sure a blown fuse F2 on the systemboard.
If you can solder you can try to replace it with a new one but be adviced, it is tricky if you don't have the skills with soldering SMD components and it can send your DS lite to the trash.
So my advice is find someone that repair DS Lites or order a fuse on eBay and try it yourself.

Regards

John
