DS LITE ? Green light stays on but screens or sound do not come on !!
I have a ds lite that will not work, the geen light comes on but the screens & sound do not come on.
I fix ds lites all the time but im not sure if this one can be fixed?
i can just use it for parts anyway but if somebody knows how to fix this then i can fix it.
i think it could be a top screen problem , cause most of the time it is !!.
let me know what you think ?
Re: DS LITE ? Green light stays on but screens or sound...
I have some motherboards of ds lite with the same problem. If you twists a lillte the motherboard near the power switch, the system powers up without a problem. When you removes torsion, the ds freezes. perhaps there are problems with some weldings. I don't know the real solution.

It sounds like the screens connection to the board is messed up in some way. Maybe something came loose and you could fix it by opening it up. Most likely though there is nothing you can really do. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
Im pretty sure when it gets to the point where it doesn't recognize its own screen is when its time to get a new ds. But if you really want to find out if it can be fixed (and don't mind paying more then its worth) you could to it to electronic shop or best buy to have them look at it.
The alarm is just a coincidence i suspect, green light comes on and stays on probably not the battery at fault. It would be red. If the green light goes out and screens just flash one of your screens are at fault or a loose ribbon connection.
This is a problem with the cpu on the systemboard. I've seen this problem many times if the DS Lite is felt to the ground. The contacts of the cpu are very fragile. The DS Lite turns on, green led available, even charche is working bot nothing else. Repair of this problem is almost impossible. The only thing you can do is send it to Nintendo.
You can test if it is the cpu by removing the bottom of the DS Lite and put the battery on te contacts. Press firmly on slot 1 (the aluminium cover) and turn the DS Lite on. If you got a picture on the screens then you know it for sure. The cpu is located under slot 1 and by pressing on de top of the slot you are pressing possible loose contacts back on de systemboard.
If it is not working then the cpu is to musch damaged.
When you boot the Nintendo DS you can change the illumination settings in the main menu. One the main menu, you will find a sunny symbol in the lower left corner of the screen. Click on that and you should be able to change the level of illumination. If you are also wondering if you can change the brightness during game play, you can't. Games such as Mario 64 DS come with support for brightness change but otherwise you have to do it before game play.
