How long have you had that battery in your DS? The more you use (play and charge) the battery, the battery's capacity is decreased. Try getting a new battery at,

My ds lite won't charge.. the orange light appeared blinked

We had this problem with a brand new DS Lite...turns out it was a bad charger. If you have access to another charger, try that first. 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)

DS is stuck in charge mode when plugged in.

Your DS may have a problem reading the battery gauge, and the DS will only let the charger do its thing for a period of time. Then, if it is still connected, it may burst more charge in. This means that your DS is acting up, and your battery may have a rare (and not harmful to the DS) malfunction.

Ds lite suddenly stopped working

The orange light goes off when the battery has been charged to its highest capacity. After every charge, the batteries capacity is decreased. Get a new battery, that should do it.

My DS will only play when plugged in

You have a loose fuse on your circuit board, or your charger port needs to be replaced.
I will fix it for you. $30 for the work and I will pay the return shipping,

Nintendo ds wont charge

cheekiemunke,

First of all, your DS Lite is charging both ways.....with power on and without power on.
You have for almost 99% sure a blown fuse F2 on the systemboard.
If you can solder you can try to replace it with a new one but be adviced, it is tricky if you don't have the skills with soldering SMD components and it can send your DS lite to the trash.
So my advice is find someone that repair DS Lites or order a fuse on eBay and try it yourself.

Regards

John

NINTENDO DS LITE WON'T CHARGE OR POWER ON

Hey everyone, not sure if this will work for everyone, but its worth a shot.  my problem was identical to all the others here, a flash of orange and then nothing.  
i thought perhaps those little metal contacts on the battery and the ds had build up a little corrosion, interrupting the charge.  so, i took some rubbing alcohol and q-tips and gently scrubbed them clean, both on the battery AND the ds side.
After this, my ds has worked flawlessly.  Hope it's the same for you!

Not charging

Quite honestly...

I know that this is probably not the answer you guys want to hear about this issue...

You're going to have to contact Nintendo and make good on your warranty on this one. Just tell them that the unit is no longer charging and that you 'don't know why'. They should have no real problem replacing it for you.

This is most likely an internal electronics issue that no expert here is going to be able to advise on.

Unfortunately the internet still isn't good enough that we can do solder jobs over our internet connections. :P

=THIS IS NOT A PROPOSED FIX. DO NOT RATE ME FOR IT=
Otherwise, if you wish to persist in trying to fix your problem, the only thing that I can tell you is to either try using someone else's charger adapter, buy a new adapter OR use an adapter that works and hold it at different positions in the DS Lite to see if any position will charge it. If you are succesful at charging it in this manner then the port you plug the charger into may be loosened.

===DO NOT RATE ME FOR THIS POST. IF YOU GIVE ME A POOR RATING FOR THIS POST I WILL DISPUTE IT WITH THE FIXYA STAFF AND ASK THAT IT BE REMOVED. I AM NOT ATTEMPTING TO SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM BUT AM GIVING YOU ADVICE ON WHAT YOUR BEST BET IS. I WILL however accept a GOOD rating if it is given - naturally. LOL===

Regards,
Cyryl
