    I have been told ti is in sleep mode, how do I get it out of sleep mode

  • mabennett97 Jul 20, 2008

    Have checked F1 and F2 and they are OK

  • mabennett97 Jul 20, 2008

    I have checked the connections and disassembled and reassembled the unit and still the same except the screen now flashes on/off and with the volume on full there is a slight noise.

  • mabennett97 Jul 26, 2008

    I have checked all leads and still get the same thing, I have discovered that when I unplug the wireless connector from P10 and then turn the unit on I get the green light on and it stays on but nothing else happens.

  • mabennett97 Jul 26, 2008

    The F! and F" fuses are fine, I have tested them with a meter.

  • mabennett97 Jul 26, 2008

    The F1 and F2 fuses are fine, I have tested them with a meter.

  • mabennett97 Jul 27, 2008

    Held the switch for 10 seconds connected it to a charger but when switched on still the same, the green light comes on and then off after a second and the bottom screen flashes.

  • mabennett97 Jul 30, 2008

    it is still not working, I am getting the same as before.

  • mabennett97 Jul 31, 2008

    The hinge broke

  • mabennett97 Aug 02, 2008

    Have checked the ribbon cable for top LCD screen and used a multi meter to test and I get a reading from the speakers at both ends.

  • mabennett97 Aug 02, 2008

    I have had unit on charge for a couple of hours and tried it with the charger plugged in, the case is the same type. How can I get in to the options if the unit does not turn on?

  • mabennett97 Aug 02, 2008

    How do you reset to factory settings?

  • mabennett97 Aug 02, 2008

    The battery is not connected for a long period and it still does not work.

Sounds like the DS always thinks that it's cover is closed. Not sure what the mechanism is for that could be magnetic or a physical button. Verify that everything is in place, maybe you had to move a magnet from the old case to the new one.

Reset Factory Settings for Nintendo DS 1. Use a small screwdriver to unscrew the back cover.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Wait a few seconds.
4. Replace battery.
5. Turn on DS.
6a. If you have to re-enter your nick-name/time and date etc, it has worked! Go to 7.

    sorry got caught up in a few things. I have tested two systems swaping the batteries and I can honestly say its not a battery issue.



    is it possible to get a picture of your ds inside? would greatly help if you could.



    I have a few things yet to try and will give my final post tomarrow regarding this issue.

  • Wesley Gardner
    Wesley Gardner Aug 04, 2008

    FOUND A COUPLE THINGS FOR YOU TO TRY:


    FLASHME SLEEP/STANDBY FIX. WORTH A SHOT.

    Materials:

    - Illustration Board (33mm x 35mm) - exact size of ds cart (w x h)
    - Illustration Board (33mm x 5mm) optional
    - Foil (33mm x 35mm)
    - Tape (masking or clear)
    - And your DS :P

    Step:

    1. Fold the foil in half over 33mm side of the bigger piece of illustration board

    2. Secure with tape on the ends.

    3. With your DS off, slide the board foil-end first into the ds slot closer to the outer side of the slot. Make sure that the side of the board facing outwards is the side you want exposed.

    4. Pull out the board again and examine the marks on the foil-end. You should see 17 lines etched on the foil.

    5. Tape up all marks except for marks 1 and 7 (see illustration).

    6. Slide back into the slot and enjoy.

    Optional:

    Stick the other piece of board in the middle of the "cart" to make the it thicker so it won't move

    So just for the fun of it I checked out my fuses and seemed there was nothing wrong with them just for testing purposes I replaced the F2 fuse and no I managed to get the green light to stay on but no screen.so I will have to check the F1 fuse as well.



    as far as the top screen it has been completely removed for testing purposes along side



    I removed the RF module as well and seemed to have better luck with this removed. *further testing will be needed* but its installed again at this current point of testing.



    I thought that I would check the F1 fuse next heres a guide hope this helps



    http://www.m3wiki.com/index.php/Nintendo...)



    will step you through. but I dont think its the F3 fuse due to location of the fuse and the fact that its not even connected.



    give me a few hours to have my morning coffee and I will continue the adventure into this



    so in other words I would check the fuses again. and even replace them since there is not going to be any actual pysical damage that can happen from this fix so it seems.

  • Wesley Gardner
    Wesley Gardner Aug 05, 2008

    ok so now I did a replacement of the lcd with 2 different ones 1 used and one new. same result. green light still goes on and flashes and then turns off now.



    I checked the F1 fuse and with no suprise it was fine. so now I will test the old lcd on the working motherboard if a result occurs its something on the motherboard and more indepth look will happen.

  • Wesley Gardner
    Wesley Gardner Aug 05, 2008

    oh and I will be placing a new top screen on to see if that does anything spectacular

  • Wesley Gardner
    Wesley Gardner Aug 05, 2008

    ok so here is my conclusion after bridging the fuses on the motherboard I replaced the top display with another unit and sure as daylight the system started up. put the other top screen onto another motherboard and the same conclusion had happened so what I would suggest is make sure that the ribbon on the top cable is in the best condition possible. if not please replace the top screen find one on ebay for cheap



    like the guides tell you always replace the top screen before any other troubleshooting is done just because it is the easyest of the solutions to do. so this is my solution and know that in fact that that is the issue with yours.



    so possible 100% fixes is



    first replace the top lcd

    secound check the fuses or bridge the fuses

    F1 and F2 can be bridged even if they are fine thats what I did. well only the F2 needed to be replace but decided to bridge the F1 just in case.



    so hope this will get you on your way and remember make sure all your ribbons are tight where they belong.



    if your wanting to have it repaired. I can help you further in that department as well.



    good luck to you and hope you get it going and hope that my trial and error has someone what helped.

Hello,
Try to check for the following,

1) The plastic switch cover is broken, then you may need to buy a new one (usually stores sell the complette shell). Or you can try to find the broken piece and paste it again in place, out of the DS, you wont like to broke also the volume switch.

2) The volume switch (toogle, variable resistor) may have a cracked solder then you may need to resolder the switch to the board. Or if the switch is broken then you would have a problem to find a replacement, but you can also buy a broken NDSL for parts.

Thank you!!..

So it went into sleep mode when you disconnected it from the old case to conserve power-however sleep mode can drain you right out of power. This is probably what has occurred. You have to go to settings to set up for the option of sleep or standby, but with no power to your machine, you will first have to try to get power back in your battery.

Also, The new case is it for the same model of DS that you have? There are a couple of different case models.

    Apparently, the DS Lite battery is designed to only be removed when it is no longer live. I encourage you to read the entire article above and perhaps you can figure out what to do now. Good Luck.

    romove the case and put the old one, if that onel is ok and then check that all things are all right. then try again for the new case and fix it properly. may be the fault is in fitting only.



    regards,

  • SALMAN NASEER Aug 04, 2008

    the volume noise can be caused by the speaker itself. u have to check that.





    regards,

  • SALMAN NASEER Aug 05, 2008

    what about connectors. is it confirmed that u connected all the connector perfectly. may be something is going wrong with connectors. kindly try to fix that all cent per cent perfectly.



    regards,

  • SALMAN NASEER Aug 06, 2008

    dear,



    take a close look at the circuit inside. is there anything damage relavant to board. sometimes it happends that if you are going to fix some circuit, the circuit board is so sensitive. even in opening and fixing some piece and be screwed up or check if there is any drysoldering inside . or something not making circuit to work proper then remove the LCD and put some contact cleaner , especially in contacts. may be it cures the problem

    B'careful when doing with contact cleaner, remove ur LCD always, b'coz it can damage it.



    regards,

  • SALMAN NASEER Aug 06, 2008

    dear,



    check this circuitry and check the indicated points in details.

    To me this sounds like an internal problem with your system that
    warrants a repair. I would suggest calling Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700
    between 6:00 AM - 7:00 PM, Pacific Time, to go over repair options for
    your DS.

  • LORETO LACARON
    LORETO LACARON Jul 27, 2008

    Try this also i thought perhaps those little metal contacts on the battery and the ds
    had build up a little corrosion, interrupting the charge,that why the battery had no power. so, i took
    some rubbing alcohol and q-tips and i scrape it and gently scrubbed them clean, both on
    the battery and the DS side.


    After this, my DS has worked flawlessly. Hope it's the same for you!

  • LORETO LACARON
    LORETO LACARON Aug 02, 2008

    Do some tracing works to find if there is circulating voltage in the circuit board,look for open fusable resistor this is common problem of nintendo and playstation unit.Unfortunately the level of sophistication on these DS lite nintendo make it virtually impossible to trace and diagnose them further without taking them apart and probing around with a multimeter and other tools..Your last option is bring it to authorized service center...

    hope this may help;

Hello mabennett,

Open it again and check that the screen connector is conected correclty. Check it is completely flush with the casp, because if it isnt connected firmly, it will cause your DS screen to flash white and thn it will turn off by itself.

It is not in sleep mode, to get off sleep mode you just press start button.
Your nintendo is not in sleep mode, it is a safety switch turning it off because there is either a short or a missing contact.
Check all connection, if you do not find the problem you will have to fully re-assemble the device.

It sounds like it's bricked , meaning that that main chip of it is broken unless you've flashed it (You needed a 3rd party device to do so) or you can get a new mother board for it. The best thing to do is 1. Call Up Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700. 2. Go onto here http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/repair_charts_dslite.jsp Hipe that helps.........

After installing batteries in the controller and inserting the usb stick into your PS3, hold down the home button (the round middle most button with a house on it) for a few seconds until the light on the controller illuminates. This is your indicator your controller is paired with your PS3 and should be assignable and usable at this point.

PS3 cant go online with Belkin N1 wireless router


I have exactly the same issue as some of you above. As soon as I start my PS3 I manage to log onto the network for anywhere between 2 seconds and 2 minutes before I get the dreaded 80710102 error and have to reboot the PS3 to reconnect. I wrote to Belkin tech support and got the following reply... I Haven't tried it yet so don't know if it really works but thought I'd post it up here in case it helps anyone else out...

Hi Antony,

Thank you for contacting Belkin Technical Support.

We understand that the router does not support PS3. We apologize for the inconvenience caused.

A) To isolate the problem, please follow the steps given below to update the firmware and configure the router:

We recommend that you update the firmware from a computer that is connected to the router with an ethernet cable.

Please download only the relevant firmware on the router from the link given below. The firmware file would be according to the router version:

http://www.belkin.com/uk/support/article/?lid=enu&pid=F5D8635uk4A&aid=14489&scid=0

and save it to the computer.

- To update the firmware, log on to the router`s web interface by typing in http://192.168.2.1 in the address bar of the browser. The computer should be
connected to the router with an ethernet cable.
Note: If you have changed your Router’s IP address, use that IP address.
- By default, the password is blank. Click the "Submit" button.
- Click on "Firmware Upgrade" under the option "Utilities".
- Click on “Browse” and select the bin file that you have downloaded.
- Click on “update” and follow the wizard.
- After updating the firmware, restore the router to factory defaults by clicking on "Restore Factory Defaults" under "Utilities".
- Reconfigure the router.

Please follow the steps given below for configuring the router:

- Disconnect the computer from your Modem provided by your "Internet Service Provider" (ISP) if it is connected to the computer.

- Reset the router to "Factory Defaults". The reset button is found at the back of the router. The reset procedure is,

- Unplug the power cable and then plug it back again. Wait for 5 seconds.
- Locate the reset button (inside a hole) at the back of the router.
- Hold down the reset button till the power-light turns solid, and then release it.

- Connect the router to either the telephone line or the filter.

- Connect the computer to port number 1 of the router.

- Make sure the corresponding lights are lit. The telephone light should be ON and solid.

- Make sure your computer has a valid IP address by following the steps given below.

1. Click on “Start” -> “Run” -> and type “CMD” and click “OK”.
2. Type “ipconfig” in the black window and check the IP address.
3. It should be in the range of 192.168.2.x, where “x” ranges from 2 to 254.

- If it is not a valid IP Address, please assign a static IP address, "Subnet Mask", “Default Gateway" and "DNS Addresses" in the computer by referring to the link below.

- Please reset the Internet Explorer browser settings by following the steps below.

- Open Internet Explorer. Click on “Tools” -> “Internet Options”.

- On the left under “Internet WAN”, click on the option "Connection Type".

- Select “PPPOA”, (If it is ADSL)/ PPPOE (If it is DSL) and click on “next”.

- Type in the user-name and password and then re-type the password given to you by your ISP. Make sure you type in the full user-name.
For Example, the format for the User-name should be "yourusername@yourISP.com or .net"

- Also confirm the settings of “VPI/VCI”, “Encapsulation” values from your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and configure the same.

- Change the “MTU” to “1400”.

- Click on “Apply Changes” button at the bottom. Wait till it saves the data.

- Click on Home on the right top corner and then click on the "Connect" button. You should be able to go online.

B) Configuration of PS3:

Please contact Sony and assign static IP address and DNS on the PS3. The static IP address should be assigned in the range of the router. For example: 192.168.2.200. The IP address you assign should not be used by any other device on the network. Please confirm the ports to be opened for the PS3 from Sony.

1) Please follow the instructions given below to forward the port numbers for PS3 on the router:

- Please open the Internet Explorer and in the address bar type in "192.168.2.1" and "Enter". The computer should be connected to the router with an ethernet cable.
- Leave the password blank and click on "submit".
- Click on "Virtual server" under the "Firewall".
- Enter the port number under "Inbound port" & "Private port".
- Enter the Static IP address of the PS3 under the "Private IP address".
- Check the "Enable" box and click on "Apply changes".

2) Please follow the instructions given below to enable UpnP on the router:

- Log on to the router web interface at http://192.168.2.1
- By default, the password is blank.
- Click on System setting under "Utilities".
- Against the heading "UPNP Enabling", choose "Enable".
- Click on "Apply changes".

Note: The NAT feature on the router is enabled by default.

If the problem persists, please get back to us with the following information:

1. Type of connection provided by your ISP (Is it PPPOE, Dynamic or Static).
2. Name of the Internet service provider (ISP).
3. Version number of the router. You would find the version number on the bottom of the device. It would be a number in a series of thousands with a prefix “ver.”. Please confirm if the router is F5D8635?
4. Using the router, if the connection is stable on all the wired and wireless computers?
5. If the PS3 works fine with other networks?
6. When does the error come up? If it comes up for both, CAT5 and CAT6 cables?
