Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

I bought a DS Lite on Ebay but it has problems. In the item description it said that the buttons didn't work, but I can't get it to turn on. I flip the on switch and the green light comes on but nothing else happens. What can I do to fix it? Also I got it to turn on once, but when I turned it off and on again it did the same thing. Please help.

Way did you get a DS Lite from Ebay? Don't you know that stuff on Ebay is always broken or worse?! throw away the ********** thing and go to the store and buy one! :(

    I bought it on Ebay because I don't have the money to buy one somewhere else. It works now, I guess the CPU was wet from travel or something.

DS charging..light stays orange...

It could mean that the Motherboard (Main Circuit) could be damaged or could be a fuse problem as you may have said. Although it actually might be the battery, there's one way to find out, if your friend has a DS Lite, ask them if you could borrow your battery for 2 seconds and put their battery in yours to see if it is the battery, if the same thing happens, its the Motherboard (Main Circuit)

US Nintendo DS-Lite with converter problems in South Africa


It should work straight out with a step down transformer. That is of course if the mains supply in South Africa is 240 240 and the unit being American is 110.

This is of course not unless it was initially tried without a transformer or stepdown converter which would mean that the charger/adapter has been fried and therefore damaged.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

My NDS lite won't work

This may be down to a blown fuse on the DS motherboard. You can pick them up on ebay . You will have to solder them on the motherboard. I really hope this helps you. If it does please rate me.

Ds lite possible fuse problem

This probleem look indeed like a Fuse problem. If you can't repair it youreself, use google to find a repair service in your neighbourhood.
I know it could not be easy to find some but they out there.
What you could do is go to eBay and find some resellers of DS Lite parts and send them a personal message and aske them if they can help you replace the fuse.
