The flash is caused by a bad top lcd screen, the ribbon must have cracked or has a tiny split in it, this is common with trying to get the ribbon through a 1/4" hole

Most likley, you did not correctly seat the ribbon cable for one of the screens into it's connector.

Did the unit function correctly before?
Did you change the case because the previous one broke?

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.

NINTENDO DS LITE WON'T CHARGE OR POWER ON


Each time you charge your battery, the charge capacity is decreased. After a large amount of charges, the capacity is decreased to an amount only enough to turn on a/the screen(s) for a second. Try getting a new battery.

You might have loosened a wire. Either take the ds apart and reconnect it yourself or send it in to nintendo for service.

Will not power up after changing the case


I found this on ebay after a lot of searching forums and other sites, and it worked for me!

"If you are one of the unlucky ones, LIKE me, you may find after taking it apart,and then putting it all back into the new case, that when you power up, bottom screen flashes, and nothing... DONT panic.. I did.. tried looking for help on the web and couldnt find any. It just means you, like me havent pushed one of the Ribbon cables fully in... took me a while to work it out, just unclip the ribbon cable again, and with both fingers gently push it all the way in, you will feel it slide into the socket more than it did before. "

Good luck Duca
