    It is possible that the battery has come to the end of its rechargeable life. This is usually indicated by the orange light not staying on when charging, the cheapest option would be to purchase a new battery off of ebay or such and try and charge the new one. If that does not work then it is possible that the motherboard has become faulty and will need to be replaced. This is quite expensive and not really viable due to the cost of second hand ds lites. The other thing that may be wrong with it is that a fuse may have blown but usually the charge light will flash only briefly.



    Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

It sounds like a faulty battery. As it is under 1 year old, it is still under warranty. Return it to the origional place of purcase, who will either fix or replace it.

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.

Charge light orang on for a second and turn off unit not charged.


This kind of problem is usually caused by either of this 3 things: Either the problem is the battery not being able to charge anymore(bettery would need to be replaced), or the charger does not give any charge to the batter(recommend try another charger), or last would be the console charger port( would need to replace console, or repair charger por,not recommended)

You probably have to send it to Nintendo to have it repaired (That is what I had to with mine). Go to the site and check to see if it is still under warranty.
