Left key on my DS lite isnt working

There are a few different things which may have happened. The spring may have popped loose. The actual button itself may be loose from the logic board. If you are not under Warranty then recommend contacting SBL Games by clicking here.

Nintendo DS will NOT charge

My guess is that the problem resides in the charger. You can buy a dual use charger for the DS and DS Lite at GameStop for relatively cheap.

I dont know what files to download to make my ds R4 work?

First download the English Kernel v1.18 (system files) from here then Unzip the files and place them in the root directory of your flash card. All should now be ok :)

My butten dose not work.

If that backwards "j" letter there means the "L" button, then the actual part the button presses inside may be damaged. If you open the DS up, and look for a small box with a round button on top, see if it is damaged in any way. If that is the case, then you could try to replace it (which will require some dexterity with a soldering iron), you could replace the main board, or you could just get a new DS.

And please work on your spelling.

I'd suggest removing and then re-inserting the battery (this should at least switch the power off).
Is the power switch loose? If so it's been broken and needs replacing (not an easy job).
Alternately it could just be stuck in sleep mode which happens when the DS is closed while powered on but should awaken when re-opened.
