    I'm having the same problem, changed the shell and only getting the green power light for three seconds...then the bottom screen flashes, upper screen stays black. Tried plugging it in to start. Same results

    Exactly the same. Originally the top screen was cracked but both screens lit up ok. Changed the top screen and now when powering up, green light, flash from the bottom screen and back into standby. Tore the backlight (small) flexi when changing the screen but managed to transplant the old backlight flexi into the new screen. Tried powering up when attached to the charger to no avail.

Just been looking around the net and came across a solution that worked for me. The small securing clip for the small flexi fits UNDER the flexi, pushing it up onto the contacts. I had it the wrong side. Apparently most problems after screen replacement are caused by misalligned/unconnected flexis.

My NDS just shuts down randomly in the midst of playing, usually with the green light giving a few blinks. No flashing screens though, and it's definitely charged. What could be wrong?


Is it still under warranty? Call Nintendo and have them repair it for you. I had the same exact issue, Nintendo solved my problem in less than a week.

Nintendo DS Lite, Dim Green Light, Brigher Green Light then off


Hi,

If the green light reacts as you state then the chances are the fuses are fine.

Again, with the reaction of the green light being as you stated i'm going to assume you have a problem with one of your screens, tell me... when the green light comes on does one of the screens flash? If it does then we have found the answer...

The screen that doesnt flash is the one with the problem, you can try taking the DS lite apart and re-connecting the screens ribon to see if that sorts it, if it doesnt then im afraid you will have to buy a new screen. These can befound on ebay for a reasonable price.

I have written some guides on how to change your screens and how to disassemble the DS lite, these will guide youthrough the processes you need to take. These can be found by clicking on my name and then scrolling down to "tips and tricks", press the "view all" to see all of them and find what you need.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

My NDS lite power cannot be turned on and turns off randomly


The problem is that your son dropped it. This damages both the inside and outside of the DS. I would suggest contacting your nearest video game store to see if they can fix it.

Flashing bottom screen (Nintendo DS Lite)


You need to check the top screen ribbon is fully inserted into to place on the board. A green light and flash of the screen within a second means ribbon not connecting right

Will not turn!


i had same problem ( bought a faulty nds off ebay and would charge but nothing when powering up, not even a blink of green light) problem is a component called a L2 its an inductor 33uH in case SMD 1007. its situated dirrectly under the power switch but they are prone to fall off when nds is dropped ect. you need to resolder it on (very tricky). give your nds a shake to see if you can hear it rattelling about. be carefull when opening your nds not to lose the part (its very small, about 4mm long 2mm wide) GOOD LUCK
