Yes, you did good, but you will need to replace the other capacitors on the sound board.

I bought the nintendo ds lite from ebay as seen. the on button doesn't work and apparantly it won't charge. The on off button looks like it may have been forced a little but it does nothing at all. can...

The power switch has a liitle plastic notch that fits into the outside plastic, if it snaps off then you will need to remove the back cover, if you have good soldering skills, its tricky but you can desolder it from the board, you can can by the switches of ebay, there not very expensive, you will also need a tri-wing screw driver and a small philips to remove the back cover, if your not sure on how to do it there are some good videos on youtube that will run you through the process.
If the ds is not charging then it may have a dodgy battery, get hold of another battery and test that it charges.

Sounds like the battery is no good. I would try that battery in a different PSP and if its the same you know its battery if it works in another PSP then your PSP mainboard is @ fault. Good Luck.

Game gear has sound, no picture just lines

it sounds like the game gear is breaking down. i wouldn't bother repairing it as i have owned one previously and the repairman said it would cost me £30 - £40 to have it repaired and my game gear had the same problems as yours. you can replace it as there are loads of game gears to choose from on - just type game gear on search in all categories and a huge list comes up. i bought one from there a few days ago and it cost me £8.49 and that included 4 games! i hope this helps.
