    I cannot get the power connector out! It's the included power supply that I'm having trouble with. I tried removing the battery, but I can't see those prongs or whatever it is that holds it in place. I'm afraid I'll break it if I use all my might... This is the DS Lite we're talking about.

I took it down to the store, and they just tore it out. It just took a lot of strength on the first try. It's much easier now. Thanks anyway!

Remove the battery, looking at the jack on the left side is a prong that holds the charger in place also to make contact with the charger, try taking a pin and push the prong against the left wall. there is also one on the back right side

    jopparai--the prongs are not next to the battery, the battery is to be removed to stop current. look inside the charging port

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.

Car chargers stuck in nintendos, 2 upset daughters

did u try plugging them back in to the car ,maybe they heated up if so plug them in leave them for as long as when it happened and then try with a pliers for extra grip(twisting), a bad idea would be to splice the wires with the wall chargers by cutting of the ends and joining them that way but you would need to now what you are doing

My ds charger plug is bent

The only concern is if the connectors inside the charging station is corrupted. The bending is simply the outer metal connection, then bending it back wouldn't cause any damage. If the problem is further inside the station, it needs to be replaced. Nintendo can replace it for you for an acceptable price.

Nintendo DS Lite power adaptor disconnection problem

There is a small latch on the connector that may be stuck. Try this. Turn the DS Lite upside down with the charger plug facing away from you. Press down the on the plug gently with your right thumb and with your left hand pull the connect away from the socket. FYI this should be a simple fit! Make sure the connector was not jammed in upside down to start with. It has a clear six sided shape to it!

Charger stuck in ds lite

Gently wiggle the charger from side to side, not too much incase you break the pins. it may be a little stiff to start with. Apply a fair amount of force and have lots of patience : )

Hope this helps,

Power problems with DS Lite

Really sounds like a dead battery. The DS will not work if the battery is bad even when it's plugged in. You get the quick flash of the power light and that's it.

The adapter will not disengage from the console

you must forcefully remove the charger cable from the ds, try grasping the hard part of the charger cable where it inserts into the ds and have someone else hold the ds then pull. if it doesn't release still don't break the charger cable just send it off to nintendo and have them service it.
