Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

DS Lite shuts off when I press the B button, and at random.

My DS Lite seems to operate perfectly fine, until I begin playing a game. If I press the B button a bit too hard, the system shuts off. Sometimes, the system will just shut itself down for no apparent reason. The battery is fully charged, and I've tried this while it's plugged in and it still does it.

    i have the exact same problem would be great if anyone had any ideas..

    I ended up doing a bit of research on this problem. Though quite rare, it is acknowledged by Nintendo. Basically, on some DS Lite models, repeated used of the B Button causes the circuit board surrounding it to develop small, microscopic cracks, which in turn cause the button to become almost a circuit breaker, killing power to the whole system when pressed too hard. I called Nintendo, and of course, my warranty had expired, so they couldn't do anything for me for free. They said I could send it in for $75 and have it repaired, but I chose to trade it in at a local video game store (they didn't test it thoroughly, so I got full credit for it). Paid a decent bit less for a new one, as opposed to having it repaired.

How to i get to play two players on the Nintendo ds lite


You can play multiplayer games with a Nintendo DS Lite even if you don’t possess a copy of the game. If one of your friends has a multiplayer game card, they can use their Nintendo DS Lite as a host for the game session and you can join the multiplayer game.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Things You'll Need:
  • Nintendo DS Lite
    Using One Card to Host the Game
  1. Step 1 Look on the game’s packaging for the "Multiplayer" icon. If the game requires only one player to have a copy of the game, the icon will show two DS Lites: a DS Lite with a black screen transmitting waves to a DS Lite with a white screen. Below the two DS Lites is a range of numbers which indicates how many players the game can support.
  2. Step 2 Put the game card in the Nintendo DS Lite that is acting as the host for the multiplayer game session and start it up.
  3. Step 3 Have the other players turn on their systems. They will use the main menu screen to access the "DS Download Play" icon. They need to tap the icon to begin downloading the game information from the host DS Lite.
  4. Step 4 Begin playing when all of the systems have finished downloading the game information from the host.
  5. Multiple Cards for Multiple Players
  6. Step 1 Look at the "Multiplayer" icon. If every player in the game session needs a copy of the game in order to play, the icon will show two DS Lites, both with black screens, transmitting waves toward each other. A range of numbers is under this graphic and indicates how many people can play at one time.
  7. Step 2 Read the game's instruction manual on how to set up the game session. The steps required vary by company and sometimes by title within the same company.

Gameboy DS lite turns off when B button is pressed any harder than a tap. Gameboy also turns off randomly.


Your DS Lite is grounding out. Take it apart and look at the back of the Bottom LCD..


Has it had any recent liquid spills AT ALL?

DS Lite Won't Work Until it "Warms" Up- Like 15 mintues


Err...Is it too late to return the Ds or trade it in for a new one? Because, if it is messed up you can probably return it to wherever you got it. Also, you can probably take it to Gamestop and have them fix it for around 20 dollars.

Action replay input code buttons


Have you tried just using the Normal DS buttons rather than the touch screen? I don't know how bad your touch screen is calibration is for your AR (mines pretty close to fine), but if you find that the touch-screen is frustrating you too much, just use the normal DS buttons. Sure it will be a bit slower, but it won't be as frustrating.
