Question about Nintendo DS Console

1 Answer

My DS Lite when powered up will show the green light, it then gets brighter and then the system shuts down. I have checked and replaced the fuses and checked the cables just in case but still the problem remains. Can anyone help ?

That sounds like the behavior of a fault resistor. I would get a new board. They are surprisingly cheap.

    it makes a clicking/popping sound if I listen closely when it goes off, maybe this can help you but a new board me thinks is the answer
    thanks for the advice.

    Yeah, Unless you have a bunch of scrap board to swap components back and forth your really going to have a hard time. Either way. I've repaired about 15 to 20, and they never seem to get any easier...
    Good luck.

Nintendo DS Lite, Dim Green Light, Brigher Green Light then off


Hi,

If the green light reacts as you state then the chances are the fuses are fine.

Again, with the reaction of the green light being as you stated i'm going to assume you have a problem with one of your screens, tell me... when the green light comes on does one of the screens flash? If it does then we have found the answer...

The screen that doesnt flash is the one with the problem, you can try taking the DS lite apart and re-connecting the screens ribon to see if that sorts it, if it doesnt then im afraid you will have to buy a new screen. These can befound on ebay for a reasonable price.

I have written some guides on how to change your screens and how to disassemble the DS lite, these will guide youthrough the processes you need to take. These can be found by clicking on my name and then scrolling down to "tips and tricks", press the "view all" to see all of them and find what you need.

I hope this helps.

Ds lite charge, but green lite will not come on


You have damaged the L2 fuse just below the power button. It is vary delicate and easy to knock of off its placement despite being soldered in.

Double check this fuse to make sure it is still in place and soldered to the contacts on both sides of the fuse.

Ds lite flashes on but fuses are ok


One or both your screens have blown.

Try removing the motherboard from the screens and attach the battery the green light should turn on and stay on.

Now attach the lower screen and turn on. If the screen is ok the screen and green light will flash and then turn off. (if the screen doesn't flash the bottom screen is you're problem and will have to be replaced)

If this happens the problem is then you're top screen which you will have to replace.

DS Lite will not power on


blowin F1 or F2 fuse or both inside your nds. can be fixed by runnung a bead of solder the blown fuse so it bridges the fuse (idealy you would replace fuse but its very tricky) first of all if you have a multi meter check the fuses before soldering them. anyway i advise not to use the homebrew card especially on your nds when you bridge the fuses as once the fuses have been bridged there is no saftey shut off to stop more sever damage. oh by the way just youtube F1 and F2 fuse location to find out where they are. oh and use a 15watt solder iron to be on safe side (less chance of overheating any components near fuses when soldering). its not that hard to do really (i did 2 of them with a gas solder iron due to me not having a 15watt iron) also replaced cracked screens. my next job to do is replace a L2 inductor on a friends nds (symptom for this fault is nds charges but will not power up, not even a blink of green light) for anyone who has this symptom its the L2 inductor thats broken away

Baakie,

You turn de DS Lite on, the green light flashes and the unit turned of. Is that correct?

The DS Lite checks some things before he starts-up. One of these things are the screens. the DS sends a signal to it and expect an answer back. When this answer is not received, it shuts down.
The most common problem in these cases is the flatcable of the upper screen.
Question is, did you replaced the housing? If so, you might dammaged the flatcable of the upper screen. If not, the flatcable might be defective because of using the DS Lite a lot (open /close the unit).

So first check the flatcable of the upper screen (google and you will find manuals how to open the DS Lite but be carefull!!!!)

Second, on the mainboard are two fuses (F1 and F2) . Check these! One of them might be defective

Success

Nintendo DS Lite will not power up


This can sometimes be caused by the single smt capacitor on the board in the top half that the screen cables plug in to. Try replacing the cap or the entire board.
