    did you open the system, if yes make sure the top lcd ribbon is inserted all the way into the ribbon connector

Ds lite- green light comes on then screen flickers for one second then turns its self off whats wrong ?


Hi there, this is usually a sign that one of the screens has become faulty.

When you switch the DS console on, make a note as to which screen is the one that flashes. If the top screen flashes just before it turns off then the bottom screen is faulty.

If the bottom screen flashes then it is the top screen that is faulty.

Whichever screen it is that is faulty they can be bought quite cheaply online from places like amazon and ebay.

To actually replace the screen does require some good technical knowledge but usually there are some very good guides available just by doing an internet search.

I hope this information helps you and thank you for using FixYa

When I turn on my DS lite, the green light and bottom screen flash briefly and it turns itself off. This is even with the charger plugged in (which indicates that it is charging).


Hi there, this is unfortunately because the top screen has become faulty. Whichever screen flashes it is the opposite screen that is faulty.

You can buy the screens quite cheaply from such places as amazon and ebay.

To replace the screen itself is a little tricky, especially as it is the top screen that is faulty.

If you do an internet search on how to replace the top screen of a ds lite you will find that there are plenty of guides out there but please read through them first to make sure that you are comfortable carrying out the repair.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

My DS Lite shuts off after a fraction of a second of being on. the bottom screen flashes but the top screen stays blank. I replaced the battery and it still does this. I fully charged the battery and it...


It's a problem with one of the LCDs. The DS Lite will do a power on self test -- if one of the screens has a problem, it will flash and turn itself off to avoid damaging the unit further.

I have just changed the top screen and now when i turn it on the screen flashes and turns off


Depending on which screen flashes tells you which screen is faulty. If the screen you have just changed flashes then it is the bottom screen that is faulty. However I have known the DS to be rather sensitive when it comes to connections. Take the DS apart again and reinsert the ribbon cables that connect the screens to the motherboard. This will hopefully correct the problem.

Hope this helps.

If the bottom screen flashes when you turn the ds on but the top screen does nothing, then you need to replace the top screen or reseat the ribbon cable.

The green light flashes on my Ds Lite, but it simply wont turn on. It always shows a black screen. Please help.


One of your screens have either come loose at their connection or the screen is faulty which means a new screen.
Just hope its the bottom one as the top screen requires some patience to replace.

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.
