Question about Nintendo Video Game Consoles

1 Answer

My son dropped his ds lite and now it won't power on. The green LED comes on, and the charger LED comes on if you plug the charger in, but no response from the screens or sound. I'm an electronics engineer by trade but without a circuit diagram I don't even know where to start looking. All the internal components look fine, the ribbon cables and coaxes are fine, and visually all the components on the boards look OK. Help!

If you look close enough there will be a missing or crack inductor (solder joint) there are 3 of them on the board they have the number 100 printed on them, try that.

Ds light green,dim green, amber then off when power is turned on


Sounds like you need to send it in for repair. I had sent my console to VideoGame911.com and they repaired mine at a great cost and got it back at the end of the week. Give them a try, they are cheaper than a manufacturer. Good luck!

Nintendo DS won't power-up


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.

Power problems with DS Lite


Really sounds like a dead battery. The DS will not work if the battery is bad even when it's plugged in. You get the quick flash of the power light and that's it.
