Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
Hi there, DS lite will not powerup. I have confirmed that battery has full charge by swapping from another working DS. When I plug in the charger, the left hand light flashes Orange once, then goes out. It is my sons DS, nt sure what happened, no signof water damage, does not look like it was dropped (no visable shock damage).

If the console has overcharged or has been used for long periods of time or could just be fluke, chances are the fuses are blown on the main motherboard try this link, this guy fixed my ds and i had the exact same problems as you guys have

I have the same problem with my sons DS Lite. I called Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700 which is in your Manual, my DS Lite is not even a year old. They are sending me a refurbished unit, which is next to brand new for free. It comes with a 1 year warranty. When the new one arrives you send back the old one to them. They pay for postage and everything. I guess this is better than not having a DS at all and who wants to spend the money on another. Give it a try. And as for a diagnosis of the problem they think it can be a electronic component inside the unit but they are not sure. Hope this helps ya !!! Smilie

I called Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700 as the other user suggested. (I had the orange light flashes once problem, too.) They emailed me a FedEx label to have the DSLite repaired. They ship it back UPS ground. Total turnaround time is approx. 16 days. I'm happy. The best part is you get a human being on the phone on Nintendo's customer service.

Tips for a great answer:
it sounds like it's a battery problem.
If you want to replace your battery, call Nintendo's Consumer Assistance Hotline at 1-800-255-3700 from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. Pacific Time, and order a replacement battery there. I believe it costs around US$15.00.
I have seen this happen when someone plugs the wrong charging cord up to the DS lite, Is there any chance some one did this to your DS lite.It sounds also as if the battery is not making proper connection.
I hope this gets you in business Atticus. Do not Vote until we get it working. Try this and add a comment to this problem posting. I will answer as soon as I possibly can. Thank you very much for the opportunity to solve your porblem with a DS Lite.
