First, you can try swapping batteries with a known working unit and battery. Failing that, go to Nintendos website & plug in your DS serial # to check if it's still under warranty (1yr). If so, mail it back to Nintendo they will usually fix for free. If older than 1 year, they may still fix it, but you need to call the toll free number & arrange that. That usually costs around $50 dollars. Their are 2 fuses inside the DS (not easily replaced at all)! that may be blown.
Good luck!

My DS lite wont charge - the orange light flashes once, then nothing.


Hi, it might be the fuse.
Does the DS turn fail to turn on?
Does the charge light just flash briefly when you plug in charger?
If so it will be the fuse.
If the console it out of warranty, maybe you or someone you know can fix it.
Check out the following youtube videos
Good Luck

It wont turn no matter how long i charge it


does the orange light flash of a few seconds after you plug it in? If it does, I think that it is a battery problem. After a lot of charges, the battery's capacity decreases. If the orange light just flashes, I would try a new battery http://www.nintendorepairshop.com/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=191&cat=Nintendo+DS+Lite+Batteries for ds lite battery or http://www.nintendorepairshop.com/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=188&cat=Nintendo+DS+Batteries for a ds battery (both $8)

Battery is fully charged but it still wont power up no lights when plugged in to charge


Hook up only the ac adapter to the DS to see if it turns on. If it does then we know the ac adapter works. We know the battery got fully charged but the system isn't turning on with the battery that is fully charged up.

I would say your battery is defective but you won't really know until you fully charge up a known good working battery and test it out.

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.

Wont turn on


The orange charge light turns on when you plug it in and goes off after a short time? If so, it may be a problem with your battery. Does the power light flash green when you turn it on? As batteries are recharged more, they slowly lose their capability to hold a charge. i would suggest borrowing a battery from a friend, if it works, you need a new battery.

What is the orange charging light doing? If it is just flashing on, or only staying on or a minuet, that means you need a new battery. The orange light foes on when the battery has been charged to its maximum capacity. After each charge, the capacity is decreased. So if the orange light is on for only a short time, get a new battery.

Nintendo dslite wont turn on.tried charging it wit 3 different charges and it still wont charge


Ensure that you are properly recharging the battery.

1. Insert the small end of the adapter into the external extension connector (labeled "5.2V=IN") on the back of the Nintendo DS Lite, just next to the SLOT 1 Game Card opening.

2. Swing the prongs on the AC adapter until they lock into place, then insert it into a standard (120 volt) outlet.

The plug should be mounted vertically or on a floor outlet (such as a power strip).

3. Once the adapter is properly inserted, the unit will begin to charge (the orange charging light will display).

4. Once the DS Lite is fully charged, the orange charge light will go off.

Check the AC Adapter for damage (such as bent prongs or split wires). If you see damage to the AC Adapter, purchase a replacement from Nintendos Online Store.

Try plugging the AC Adapter into another wall outlet. Its possible the outlet is not working properly and has not been charging the Nintendo DS Lite.

If you are unable to get power to your Nintendo DS Lite, despite trying to properly recharge the unit, then your system will need to be repaired.

Nintendo offers convenient repairs, fast turnaround times and, for all systems repaired, a new one-year manufacturer's warranty.
